EX Lab BD7 floating steering & servo mount

EX Lab BD7 floating steering & servo mount

Excellence Laboratory is busy introducing more option parts for some of the most common electric touring car kits. Following first renderings of a floating steering and servo mount for the Xray T4 earlier this week EX Lab now also announce the trick part for Yokomo’s BD7. The floating steering assembly is designed to remove the steering bellcrank posts from the main chassis which leads to a softer flex setting and less influence of the chassis flex on the steering geometry during cornering. It is understood that the set will include new inner and outer servo mounts, a redesigned upper carbon fibre plate, alloy steering posts and an additional post to connect the steering plate with the top deck for additional chassis hardness settings.

Francesco Martini re-signs with Xray

Francesco Martini re-signs with Xray

Xray has announced that the multiple Italian Champion Francesco Martini has re-signed with the Slovakian manufacturer for the 2015 season. Francesco is an extremely dedicated touring car racer and an important member of Xray’s R&D team as he was involved in the development of the T4 platform as well of the X1 formula car. Francesco says:

I am very happy and thankful to continue my collaboration with the Hudy family. In the last year I was able to work directly on a new X1 platform development and this has been for me the greatest RC experience. Being direct involved in the entire development process from design stage through very long and exhaustive prototype testing until final production has been a great journey that I have enjoyed and that allowed me to experience how passionate, professional and dedicated everyone at Xray is with Martin in the lead. With my involvement into R&D I am fully motivated to continue our work on the further development and I am very honored to be part of this great team. I am available to anyone with any questions concerning the X1 so do not hesitate to see me.

Not other features are known yet and we bring you more updates as soon as they surface.

Jeppe Svendsen wins at DRCMU Rd4

The fourth round of the Danish DRCMU series was hosted by the Ti-Mo club in Tinglev with 73 drivers from Denmark and Germany in attendance.

WRC 1/8th on-road quick release wheel mounts

WRC 1/8th on-road quick release wheel mounts

Italian company WRC introduce new quick release wheel mounts for 1/8th on-road cars. The design minimises possible imbalance as associated with conventional lever-type mounts as the WRC system uses a simple aluminium button that sits in-line with the wheel axle when to remove or mount the wheel and once the rim is in place the red alloy disc is pushed to the outside to lock the wheel in place. The system works with all rims brands and is used on WRC’s recently introduced GTX 1/8th on-road car.
