RB Products released a first teaser image of their forthcoming E One R 1/8th electric off-road buggy. The “R” hints that the vehicle will very likely come in a race-spec configuration, possibly with parts that already found their way into the V2 version of RB’s nitro buggy some time ago. As detailed information about the specification and features are not available yet we can only wait until the official press release for definite details.

RB introduce new option parts for the RB One and RB One R 1/8th off-road buggy. First up are CNC-machined 7075-T6 aluminium shock towers. They offer multiple shock and camber link mounting positions and come with a hard anodised finish. Available are front and rear items laser-etched with RB’s distinctive logo. Next up are CNC-machined steering spindle carriers. Available as separate items and with 12° or 14° built-in castor they are made from 7075-T6 aluminium and sport a gun metal finish. They not only offer added rigidity over the stock parts but also help to fine-tune the steering characteristic. The carriers come including new spindle collars that are also available separately. Staying in the steering department, RB have CNC-machined 7075 alloy steering spindles available. Coming as standard 0° or optional 5° castor variant the parts look cool and add stability to the front end of the RB buggy while the different castor angles allow subtle set-up changes. Like the spindle carriers the steering spindles are available as separate left and right hand item. Last but not least comes a carbon fibre heat shield that is attached to the rear chassis brace. The part protects the radio box and throttle servo from excessive heat coming from the engine, it looks cool and has enough space to become decorated with your sponsor or name decals.
