Bullitt B-220 nitro off-road engine

Bullitt B-220 nitro off-road engine

Bullitt Engines announce the release of their latest motor, the B-220. Following on from the B-218 and B-219, the new B-220 is a further evolution of the concept and takes the performance on to another level. Extensive work throughout 2014 to make improvements in all the key areas has resulted in an engine that gives more run-time and faster lap times. It also offers increased drivability and efficiency, while not sacrificing the raw power. The 21J carburettor is retained, meaning the B-220 is as easy to tune as its predecessors, and good for the sportsman and pro drivers alike.

Pro-Line Prime Stadium Truck & SC tyres

Pro-Line Prime Stadium Truck & SC tyres

Following the announcement of the Prime 1/10th buggy slick tyres Pro-Line now also introduce the Prime T 2.2″ stadium truck and the Prime SC 2.2″/3.0″ short course tyres. They target directly at racers currently running full “slick” tyres, saving them from having to grind treaded tyres down while delivering improved performance. The Prime features unique grooves that add traction and stability when the track is freshly watered or when there is a slight layer of thin dust that would cause a traditional slick to spin. The raised treaded portion of the Prime has a distinctive rough surface texture similar to a ground slick tyre and makes it have the maximum performance right out of the package. Both the Prime T and Prime SC come with blue closed cell inserts and they are available in M4 Super Soft or MC Clay compound.

RPM Sidewinder 3 & SCT speedo cage

RPM Sidewinder 3 & SCT speedo cages

Coming soon from RPM is an ESC cage for the Castle Sidewinder 3 and Sidewinder SCT speed controllers. The cage fits in the stock location on the Traxxas Slash 2WD, Slash 2WD LCG, Slash 4×4, Slash 4×4 LCG, Stampede 4×4 and Rally, while also working on other Traxxas 1/10th scale vehicles as well. The cage allows the ESC to be run with or without a fan and it encases the speedo’s body only, leaving the entire fan free to do its job. Furthermore, RPM left air channels along the sides of the controller to allow air movement along the sides of the case, helping to keep the ESC cool. Each cage is designed to simplify ESC installation and maintenance of the vehicle as only two screws hold the entire assembly to the chassis. Also included is a separate, encased on/off switch mount that bolts directly to the cage in one of four locations/orientations for extreme versatility. Alternately the switch can be mounted anywhere else simply by drilling and tapping two 2mm holes. The cage comes moulded from RPM’s renown nylon blend in blue or black colour.
