Nacho Lopez takes final round of Spanish 1/8th nats

The final round of the Spanish 1/8th nitro on-road nationals was held in Elche. Serpent’s Nacho Lopez, who had a difficult season so far, was able to secure his 5th consecutive TQ in the qualifiers making him a hot candidate for the win.

TrakPower TK955 digital soldering station

TrakPower TK955 digital soldering station

TrakPower introduce their TK955 digital soldering station for a wide range of soldering jobs. An easy-to-read digital display on the control unit shows the selected temperature, heating status and operational alerts. Simple, push-button controls allow to adjust the heat in fine 1° increments and the included security key locks in the selected temperature so that it remains steady within 1° Celsius (or 1.8° F) even while the iron is idle. In addition to the digital control unit, the TK955 also features a heavy-duty soldering iron with comfortable grip and ceramic heating element. For best results with any soldering task, two tips are included. The chisel tip increases surface contact for stronger joints, while the pencil tip allows precise solder application. The 60W soldering station also comes with a stand, sponge, and ready-to-apply decals for the control unit, iron and iron stand and it is available very soon.
