Starting the first day of the toy fair at the Serpent stand, we were shown around the huge number of new products in their booth. First up is the new 747 1/10th scale 200mm chase which features new geometry front and rear as well as a front flex system that through the use of two tie rods connecting the front blocks to the radio plate can help adjust the chassis flex. A new radio plate retains the configuration of the 733 but with the radio box removed. A nice feature of the car is the new symmetrical chassis plate that sports an area for mounting weight to the centre line of the chassis which can be moved forward or rearward to influence the cars balance. Other new features include new RCM shock absorbers that now feature membranes again instead of the foam inserts.

Nitrosisters have released this 235mm conversion kit for the Xray X10 200mm chassis. Supplied with lightweight hub extensions and made of 7075-T6 aluminium, they key into the hubs for a precise, wobble free fit every time and also have a locating ring for the wheel to centre on. Each hub extension is 15mm wide, bringing your stock Xray X10 to 230mm which allows the driver to tune the rear track width with shims to get just the right width for the body of choice. The wide front end plate included two sets of front end holes, the inner set is for 200mm bodies while the outer set is for bodies with wheelbase from 220mm till 225mm. The included adjustable turnbuckles are made of titanium.

Corally have released information about their latest release, the 10SL ‘Side Links’. Shown in prototype form, it is available in a 200mm and 235mm champions kit, in full graphite and undergoes the same transformation as their 12SL chassis, to allow the mounting of LiPo packs. By going from a T-bar to a link, or as Corally are calling it ‘Side Links’, this allows the right amount of space to mount a 1S 3.2V LiPo pack up to a 7.4V stick pack LiPo. The car also features an updated front end and stiffer rear end, compared to its predecessor, that can easily accommodate brushless motors, while a new ‘top deck’ supports to centre shock and also adds extra stiffness to the chassis.

The 2nd round of the Dutch Nationals for 1/10th 200mm was run last weekend at the RAC02000 track in Utrecht. Qualifying for the NK class saw Belgian racer and Euro B finalist Maxim Claes take the pole position with his Xray ahead of Serpent driver Daan Jacobs in 2nd, with current champion Pedro Rombouts in 3rd and Remy Moller in 4th. Making a comeback for the weekend was Julius Kolff, the former European 235mm champion showing he has lost none of his speed qualifying in 5th. Following a damp but drying semi final, the main final got underway with everyone wondering who would be pitting for tires due to the high tire wear. The final was exciting seeing Julius hit troubles, clipping the inside of a curb and damaging his light rims. Pole man Claes also hit trouble, making a mistake and clipping the pit exit, taking him out of the running at the 15 minute mark. Daan Jacobs led for most part of the race, but a small mistake in the final 2 laps let Pedro into the lead. Pedro took the win by 2 seconds ahead of Daan with Remy just behind in 3rd spot. In the Nomac class, Janwillem Gons took the win from pole ahead of Arne Schober in 2nd and Jos Pjilippus in 3rd. In the 1/8th Promo class Mario Gerssen took the win, also from the pole, ahead of Marc Meijer in 2nd and Ruud Knoester in 3rd spot.
