Mibosport Cup Christmas Race – Date change

The traditional Christmas Race of the popular Mibosport Cup will take place at a later date due to technical and operational reasons at the Hotel Sport venue in Hrotovice. The event will now be held on the 3rd of January 2015. The race will also see the use of the popular black ETS carpet. The next dates of the Mibosport Cup series have already been set and won’t be changed.

The ranking leaders in the respective classes after round two are Kuba Simurda in Touring Car Modified, Rene Kölbel in TC Stock LRP and Formula, Marcell Wostalek in 1/12th scale and Martin Bayer in the 2WD and 4WD buggy classes.

RDRP B5 series VTS Slipper Option Kit

RDRP B5 series VTS Slipper Option Kit

Revolution Design Racing Products introduce the VTS Slipper Option Kit for the B5 and B5M, designed to make the most out of the original Team Associated clutch. The 4-piece kit replaces the standard outer and inner aluminium slipper plates with vented variants for improved heat dissipation and fading-free operation. Also the centre VTS plate is replaced with a vented and hard-coated aluminium plate while the VTS slipper housing, originally a moulded composite part, is supplied in a lightweight, blue anodised and laser-etched aluminium variant. Like the slipper plate the housing is of a vented design to not only allow for better heat dissipation but to also lower its weight. All parts are precision machined from 7075-T6 aluminium and they are a direct fit on both the B5 and B5M.
