Gravity RC Skirt Pen

Gravity RC introduce the Skirt Pen, an adjustable height marker to mark the height of on-road body cut lines. With the body on the car the pen is laid on the table or pit board to draw an accurate line around the body which indicates the lower cutting line. The 6-sided unit offers measurements of 4.5mm, 5mm, 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, and 9mm with the laser-engraved number facing up is the exact height of the pen’s tip. The Skirt Pen also includes masking tape to apply on the body’s skirt before drawing the line to help with visibility on dark body designs.

Smokem T4’15 IIX carbon fibre chassis

Smokem T4'15 IIX carbon fibre chassis

With the recent release of the updated Xray T4’15, Smokem Racing has now released an updated IIX chassis for this popular electric touring car. Made from their proprietary Pro-Weave 100 percent carbon fibre construction, which is stiffer than a conventional weave, yet softer than a quasi weave, the 2.0mm thick chassis material allows to lower the overall centre of gravity for optimum response and corner speed. Flex is also improved to deliver greater traction over a wider range of track conditions and temperatures. The chassis’ contoured shape was developed through an extensive prototype and testing phase, the result of which saw significant gains in high speed steering and transitional response. Furthermore, the differential and spur gear openings are closed off to further enhance flex characteristics and improve airflow on the bottom of the chassis.
