Losi XXX-SCB brushless short course buggy

Losi XXX-SCB brushless short course buggy

The latest incarnation of Losi’s XXX is the XXX-SCB 1/10th 2WD short course buggy. When the platform first hit the RC scene 15 years ago, competition drivers were hooked on this unstoppable buggy. The vehicle utilises the AVC Active Vehicle Control system to help make its powerful 3300Kv brushless motor more manageable for entry-level drivers. With waterproof electronics under the hood, you can drive no matter what Mother Nature throws your way. The factory assembled buggy features sturdy suspension components, a 3-gear transmission with adjustable slipper clutch, grippy racing tyres and a pre-decorated 3-piece bodyshell. Also included is a high-torque steering servo, waterproof electronics, a 2S LiPo battery and a 2.4GHz radio system.

Tekno RC SCT410 stub axles & serrated wheel nuts

Tekno RC SCT410 stub axles & serrated wheel nuts

New from Tekno RC and made for the SCT410 are M5 thread stub axles and matching serrated wheel nuts. Pro 4 SC vehicles have a lot of power and the 12mm wheel hexes that are used can strip easily if the wheel becomes loose. This results in wasted wheels and tyres and so Tekno RC have equipped the new stub axles with a large M5 thread in order to use a larger M5 serrated nut that will not come loose. This makes for a far more durable stub axle, fewer stripped nuts and less tyre waste due to wheels coming loose. The axles are of a hardened steel construction and come black oxide coated for hard wearing characteristics. The matching wheel nuts are made from black anodised aluminium, they offer a serrated back to ensure the wheels stay on and they come in sets of four nuts.
