Maclan Racing have introduced their all-new MRR V2m modified class motor, based on their popular MRR Team Edition V2 stock class platform. With a completely redesigned stator and windings, updated end cap, and 12.20mm ultra smooth rotor, the V2m provides much smoother low to mid-range power band. It also reduces weight by an average of twelve percent over its predecessor. Optional 12.50mm rotors for high torque and ultra-high torque are also available for different track conditions and sizes. The V2m is available in 3.5T, 4.5T, 5.0T, 5.5T, 6.0T, 6.5T, 7.0T, 7.5T, 8.5T, 9.5T, and 10.5T variants.
New from RC Maker is an anti-tuck system for touring car body shells. Mounting between the wing strut and behind the lower wheel arch, they add significant stability to the rear of the body shell and prevent body tucks during racing, and unwanted vibrations on large tracks. The set is developed together with experienced Australian 3D printing company Think RC, and has been rigorously durability tested on track. Weighing in at only 7g for the pair and removing the need for a wing nut, they are a very viable option for all levels of drivers, and also a great, constructive way of adding weight for the ETS 90g rule. Moulding perfectly to the wing strut, they also feature a rear strut support which braces the back of the strut where damage from crashes is normally unable to be repaired. They are currently available for Protoform Type S and D9 bodies.
Monaco RC have introduced an orange shielded ball bearing kit for the Xray T4’19 touring car. The high-quality RZ-shielded ball races come pre-oiled to ensure immediate performance compared to greased bearings and their outer, orange-colour, rubber seals will ensure exceptional protection against dirt while the inner steel shields makes for very low natural drag. In the near future Monaco RC will also have full bearing sets for other kits available.
Yokomo have introduced their new Max Power 6000mAh and 5300mAh LiPo battery packs. Starting with the 6000mAh variant, the battery is built from high-performance 100C-rated cells for maximum power output in modified and stock touring classes. In addition the low centre of gravity design ensures faster cornering compared to a standard height pack due to a lowered overall centre of gravity. The second new pack is an economically-priced 5300mAh battery of standard dimensions and built from high-quality 50C cells. The battery can be used in a variety of classes.
Made for the GLR micro-size car are GL Racing’s new metal piston rods. The part comes made high stainless steel and it is polished for greater smoothness and durability. In addition the rods feature milled sections that allow the piston rod to hold damper grease better, ensuring consistent damper performance for longer.
Coming from BMT are their new 801GT nitro and electric-powered ready-to-run 1/8th scale GT cars. Both build on a hard-anodised 7075 aluminium chassis, they feature shaft-driven 4WD drivetrain with front CVD driveshafts and utilise 17mm big bore shock absorbers to ensure smooth rides even on bumpy tracks. Other features include sturdy alloy shock towers, fully adjustable suspension parts as well as front and rear anti-roll bars. Enclosed radio boxes protect the receiver and receiver battery and the nitro variant comes with Ferodo-clad brake pads for exceptional stopping power. A Hyper 30 pullstarter engine and in-line tuned pipe propels the nitro car while the electric variant comes factory assembled with a Hobbywing-made 2000kV brushless motor and 4S LiPo-compatible ESC. The kits are rounded off by 14kg-cm Savöx steering servos, 2,4GHz radio system and pre-painted body shells.
Coming from Team Silverback is their all-new Siren-HV 5500mAh super low centre of gravity LiHV battery pack. Built from 130C graphene-technology cells for a very low internal resistance, high discharge rates, enhanced punch and maximum top speed the battery weighs in at only 235g while offering a standard 139x47mm footprint at a height of only 19.5mm. The pack, that as developed with the help of Germany’s Freddy Südhoff, is ideal for medium-size indoor tracks.
Corner Speed RC have introduced a special turnbuckle tool that fits the ball cups of Xray T4’15 to ’19 as well as Yokomo BD8’18 and BD9 kits. Made of a aircraft-grade aluminium case and stainless steel shafts the tool is of a low weight and ensures extra smooth operation. A unique design helps to build turnbuckles fast and easy while also helping to eliminate unwanted misalignments with equal lengths on both sides.
