Maclan Racing MRR V2m modified brushless motor

Maclan Racing have introduced their all-new MRR V2m modified class motor, based on their popular MRR Team Edition V2 stock class platform. With a completely redesigned stator and windings, updated end cap, and 12.20mm ultra smooth rotor, the V2m provides much smoother low to mid-range power band. It also reduces weight by an average of twelve percent over its predecessor. Optional 12.50mm rotors for high torque and ultra-high torque are also available for different track conditions and sizes. The V2m is available in 3.5T, 4.5T, 5.0T, 5.5T, 6.0T, 6.5T, 7.0T, 7.5T, 8.5T, 9.5T, and 10.5T variants.

RC Maker body shell anti-tuck wing mount set

New from RC Maker is an anti-tuck system for touring car body shells. Mounting between the wing strut and behind the lower wheel arch, they add significant stability to the rear of the body shell and prevent body tucks during racing, and unwanted vibrations on large tracks. The set is developed together with experienced Australian 3D printing company Think RC, and has been rigorously durability tested on track. Weighing in at only 7g for the pair and removing the need for a wing nut, they are a very viable option for all levels of drivers, and also a great, constructive way of adding weight for the ETS 90g rule. Moulding perfectly to the wing strut, they also feature a rear strut support which braces the back of the strut where damage from crashes is normally unable to be repaired. They are currently available for Protoform Type S and D9 bodies.

Carisma 4Y24 1/24th 4WD buggy kit

New from Carisma comes their 4Y24 1/24th scale 4WD buggy kit as a replacement for the ultra-popular GT24B kit. From the Pikes Peak inspired GT24R and the race inspired GT24TR Truggy to the GT24MT Micro Monster Truck, these RTR models are all in fact derived from the best selling model of them all: the GT24B. The range not only gave owners the opportunity to experience performance and control more associated with larger scales of cars, it also spawned a range of 3rd party hop ups, and even a full on race spec buggy conversion, like the Y24, manufactured by UK based NRC Projects. Sadly the whole production of these Carisma RC models is now sold through at retail and actually finding one to purchase as a donor vehicle is near impossible. The comprehensive 4Y24 kit, based on the original GT24B running gear and latest 2.4 GHz radio gear and brushless electrics is now available. It’s an ideal bed partner for the Y24 kit and could also be used as the base platform of a custom 1/24th fun build or micro FPV racer. The 4Y24 Kit will allow to add in any performance hop ups desired during the build itself, and then tune the chassis, shocks, wheels, tyres and body to the pilot’s driving style and taste. All the basics are included, from 2.4GHz FHSS radio gear, a fast and responsive steering servo, to the brushless long can motor and ESC. The fully ball-raced kit offers gear diffs as well as multiple gearing options.
