JTP have introduced their latest option part for the Kyosho RB6.6 in the form of the V2 front shock tower. Designed to better suit the laydown transmission layout of the current car, the shock stay is of a lower and wider design, giving the buggy an overall lower centre of gravity and thus more stability around the track. The tower is cut from USA-made high-quality 3K weave 4mm carbon fibre and available now.
VP-Pro have introduced two new option parts for the Kyosho MP9 series of buggies as well as an exhaust retainer set for all nitro-powered vehicles. Starting with the MP9 options, available are a carbon fibre front shock tower as well as a centre diff plate for electric-powered MP9 kits. All parts are made to match the kit specifications and they are cut from high-quality carbon fibre. As for the exhaust retainer, the set includes a new mounting spring as well as a machined clamp that prevents the exhaust pipe from coming loose in long mains and when running in bumpy track conditions. The mounting set is usable with most nitro on-road and off-road kits.
Kyosho Europe have introduced new option parts for the RB6.6 2WD buggy in the form of heavy duty carbon fibre shock towers, a carbon fibre battery brace and a carbon composite rear bulkhead. Starting with the shock towers, the parts are made from 5mm carbon fibre and available are a standard front and a mid motor rear shock tower. Both include mounting hardware for a drop fit. Also new is the carbon fibre battery plate that features different mounting positions for the battery stops, allowing to easily adjust the weight balance. Last but not least comes a carbon composite rear bulkhead set that offers improved rigidity compared to the standard parts.
Coming from Exotek are new option parts for the Kyosho ZX6.6 and the Team Associated B6 buggies. Starting with the Kyosho parts, new are the heavy duty 5mm carbon fibre front and rear shock towers for the company’s current 1/10th 4WD buggy. Made of high-quality 5mm carbon fibre and weighing in 11g for the front and 13.4g for the rear shock tower, the parts add durability and overall rigidity by replacing the standard composite plastic shock towers. This results in a more consistent handling especially on high-grip tracks. Both towers are cut from glossy finish carbon fibre and they are available separately.
Kyosho have introduced first option parts for the Turbo Scorpion re-release vintage buggy in the form of a metal servo saver and two spring sets. Starting with the servo saver, the part is made to replace the standard composite item for a more sturdy assembly that will greatly improve steering emphasis on high-grip surfaces. The single bellcrank servo saver comes including mounting hardware and will drop right into place. Also new front and rear spring sets for the Turbo Scorpion that help to fine-tune the suspension to various track conditions. The sets are available separately and include three pairs of springs each.
Exotek have released a bunch of new option parts for Kyosho’s RB6 series of buggies. First up is a 5mm carbon fibre rear shock tower for the RB6.6. Mid motor specific, the shock tower is of a heavy duty design yet lightweight at 16g with the more robust material than the stock plastic part making for consistent handling on high-grip tracks. Designed with a reinforced cut at the shock posts for added strength and a low centre cut for improved wing air flow and a lower centre of gravity.
Kyosho have released first preview images of their forthcoming V-One R4sII club-level 1/10th nitro on-road kit. The vehicle will sport some subtle revisions such new 2mm shorter shock absorbers whose updated design and 1mm increased diameter still offers increased volume for improved damping characteristics while the updated shock towers lower the overall centre of gravity for increased corner speeds. Also new is a redesigned receiver box that protects the receiver from spilled fuel. The car is meant to make a first official appearance soon and we bring you more information as soon as we get them.
