JConcepts Dirt-Tech steering wheel foam grip

JConcepts Dirt-Tech steering wheel foam grip

New from JConcepts comes the Dirt-Tech steering wheel foam grip. The durable, gray coloured material made famous as tyre inserts has now reached the all important steering wheel for radios. Specifically designed for the Sanwa/Airtronics M12, the Dirt-Tech steering grip has a convenient size which allows for use on multiple radios including Futaba, KO and Spektrum. The outer diameter has a neutral size which gives drivers great control regardless of hand gripping size. Justified toward the outside section, revolved cuts identify the wheel as being Dirt-Tech but also provide an additional feel. Orientate the grip in the opposite direction to place the revolved cuts just under the finger tips.

Sanwa SGS-01C drift car gyro system

Sanwa SGS-01C drift car gyro system

German Sanwa distributor LRP introduce the SGS-01C gyro system that helps to make car control much easier, especially on slippery surfaces as it can reduce both under- and oversteer tendencies. Designed with drift car racing in mind the gyro is also usable in many other applications although you have to check with the event’s rules before using it in competition as many tracks, race series and governing bodies ban the use of gyros for fairness reasons. When used in combination with Sanwa’s M12, Exzes-Z or MT-4S transmitters the gyro’s sensibility is adjustable via the radios and even during a run.
