Avid carbon fibre touring car option parts

Avid carbon fibre touring car option parts

Avid have a range of optional carbon fibre parts for the Xray T4, Team Associated TC6.2 and the Yokomo BD7 available. The line-up includes 2.0mm carbon chassis, 2.0mm and 1.5mm top decks, as well as 2.0mm shock towers with all parts being direct replacements for the kit items. The chassis allow to lower the centre of gravity and the roll centres more than stock and they are specially cut to ensure equal twisting resistance side to side. Also the chassis shape is smoothed to keep droop screw platforms from digging into the track during hard cornering. Different thickness top decks help to fine-tune the chassis stiffness to adapt the cars for both carpet and asphalt racing. The shock tower are available separately for the front and rear and as combo sets including both the front and rear shock stay.

Schelle SC10 Spinfree front axles & Onyx bearing kits

Schelle Racing SC10 Spinfree front axles & Onyx bearing kits

Schelle Racing Innovations introduce the Spinfree front axles for the Team Associated SC10 and expand their line of Onyx bearings. Starting with the front axles, the chromoly alloy shafts are of a design that relieves the clamping forces on the front bearings, allowing to tighten the wheels completely and stop the front axles from binding in the turns. The axles come as pair and include shims and button head screws. Schelle has also expanded their Onyx bearing line to outfit the three newest 4WD electric buggies on the market as are the Team Associated B44.3, Hot Bodies D413, and TLR 22-4. The greased split-seal bearings reduce overall drivetrain drag and come in a re-usable snap case wrapped with the Schelle logo and graphics.
