Made for the Tamiya M07 M-chassis and coming from Yeah Racing are new reversible rear hubs that allow to switch between 210mm and 225mm wheelbase settings. The clever design not only allows to easily change wheelbase settings but in addition it retains the upper camber link ball stud position, meaning there is no need to adjust the setting when swapping over the hubs. The parts come black anodised, with machined silver edge details and including a hardware package.
Pro-Spec have released two new battery balance weights in 54g and 37g specification. The 54g weight measures 138.5×46.5x1mm and thus it is ideal for all cars using standard-size LiPo packs while the smaller 37g weight measures 95.5×46.5x1mm, ideal for all cars, buggies and trucks using shorty-type batteries. The weights come machined from high-quality brass material, they sport a natural finish and engraved ProSpec logos. Using the weights will help to either achieve an optimised overall chassis balance or to add weight when running the latest generation of lightweight LCG batteries.
Coming from 1up Racing are their new high-strength servo mounting screws. Machined from ultra-strong U.S. 7075-T6 aluminium and coming black anodised and with a mirror-like chamfer, the screws fit snuggly into the servo’s outer lashes thanks to a 4.2x2mm neck that keeps the servo in place even in hard crashes. With their 7.8mm outer diameter and 4mm threads the screws, that come in packs of four, fit the most popular servos used with 1/10 cars.
HRC Racing have introduced their new racing-pack-style 4900mAh hardcase LiPo battery pack. The oval diameter battery mimics the outer appearance of a NiMH racing pack and is ideal for ready-to-run cars, older-spec Tamiya and Kyosho vehicles, starter boxes and other applications that require this specific battery specification. The battery is built using quality 30C cells and it is available with T-type or Tamiya-style plugs.
GForce have introduced their new Magnific competition LiPo battery packs. Available as high-capacity 7400mAh and lightweight 5500mAh variant, both are built using highest quality 150C cells ant they feature 25.5mm tall hardcases with through-type 4mm connects. The 7400mAh pack weighs in at 306g while the 5500mAh battery weighs in at 230g. Both comes including balance harness and they are available soon.
Buri Racer have released new teaser images of their forthcoming E2.1 and E1.3 1/8th electric pan car kits. The E2.1 is an all-new design with a central drive belt and off-set motor mount that will ensure more equal chassis flex upon acceleration and braking while updated front suspension components also for easier camber angle changes, utilising the pivot ball design found on suspension’d 1/8th on-road kits. In the rear, a new ride height adjustment ensures for an easier and wider range of ground clearance settings compared to the E1.2.
Coming from Icon RC and made for their ultraflex chassis series is a 38g battery weight. Designed specifically to further lower the overall centre of gravity the weight is only 0.5mm thick, yet it adds 38g of weight which will result in increased stability when running on high grip carpet or asphalt tracks. Designed to fit snuggly into the milled sections of the chassis, the weight will not interfere with the natural chassis flex and it is available for the Team Associated TC7.2 and the new Infinity IF14 chassis.
