Imbue V2 brass shock pistons

Imbue V2 brass shock pistons

Imbue has announced the release of their V2 brass shock pistons. Switching from the conventional tapered body design to a more efficient tapered hole design, the tapered holes offer a higher flow, resulting in a quicker rebound or softer compression depending on orientation. In addition to the V2 release, a second hole configuration has been added to the lineup. 5×1.45mm shock pistons offer another tuning option for racers looking for every tenth. The 5-holes are better suited for rough conditions, while the 8-holes offer solid all-around dampening. The pistons are available for a range of 1/8th off-road vehicles.

Avid D413 1.5mm carbon arm inserts-1

Avid introduce 1.5mm carbon fibre arm inserts for the HB D413 1/10th 4WD buggy. They offer the buggy another great tuning feature by reducing the flex and twist in the arm. It is common to fine tune the response of the vehicle by placing them just on the front or rear or on both ends and thus the drop-fit inserts are available as separate front and rear sets and as combo set as well.

Due to popular demand Protoform are now producing their PFM-12 race body for GT12 racing in light weight .025″ Lexan.

Tekno EB48SL 1/8th ‘Super Light’ Buggy Kit

Tekno EB48SL 1/8th 'Super Light' Buggy Kit

Tekno introduce the new EB48SL Super Light 1/8th scale racing buggy kit. Based on the SCT410.3 1/10th scale short course truck the buggy is a lightweight alternative to the somewhat heavy standard 1/8th buggies and ideal for tight and twisty indoor tracks. The buggy shares around 95 percent of parts with the SCT410.3 with all of the new improvements and features put into the truck are all present in the buggy, along with a couple others specifically for the 1/8th kit. Lightened differentials, a lightened driveline, and lightened aluminium parts are standard and used throughout. 16mm bore, aluminium threaded body, long travel shocks are standard and the updated SCT410.3 suspension geometry is standard as are a split centre diff mount and the lightened chassis. The buggy is designed for the use with Pro4 motors, brushless speed controllers and 2S LiPo battery packs to make for a much lower weight compared to its heavy 4S siblings and thus improved acceleration, corner speed and jump handling.
