Coming from LRP is the all-new ZZ.21C Ceramic Square Stroke 3.5cc nitro off-road engine. Follow-up model of the popular ZZ.21C Ceramic Long Stroke, the engine is of a square stroke design for linear throttle feel yet high low end torque and exceptional mileage. The precision-balanced 14mm crankshaft sports a DLC coating for improved durability while a silicone insert optimises mixture flow. Other features include a rear ceramic bearings, a lightweight piston and rod for higher RPM and increased performance while specially shaped carburettor needles make for a smoother throttle response and longer run times. The package is rounded out by a new low-profile cooling head and a set of 6.0mm and 6.5mm venturi inserts.
LRP have introduced their new FlowX Stock Spec speed controller. Based off of the standard FlowX speedo the Stock Spec variant features the optimised V5.1 firmware to get the most out of today’s brushless stock motors. The Initial Drive Feel Compensation function for example adapts the throttle curve throughout the run to compensate motor fade and to ensure a constant throttle feeling till the end of a run. Also new is the BDX-S brake purpose designed for on-road and off-road stock racing classes. Other features include a blue anodised all-aluminium case, a black 175mm long receiver wire, a set of lightweight fan mount screws and all-black power wires.
LRP have introduced the WorksTeam 41mm aluminium fan mount. Suitable for most 1/8th scale brushless motors, the clamping design mount is machined from high-quality aluminium and it comes blue anodised and with engraved LRP logos. The lightweight yet durable design allows to mount two 40mm fan units in order to optimise motor cooling for improved overall performance and longer motor life.
Following the introduction of the FlowX TC Spec speed controller LRP now also released information on the FlowX Offroad. Built using the same all-new hardware, the Offroad spec controller comes with a longer receiver lead than the TC Spec for easier mounting in 4WD vehicles while also sporting the new v3.1 firmware with off-road specific features such as the BDX-O brake. New timing features ensure improved drivability in demanding track conditions and increased top speed when needed. The ESC comes including hardware to mount optional fan units, with a 200mm sensor wire and it supports LRP’s external programming device that is scheduled for a later date.
