Yokomo B-Max4III Lightweight Spec combo kit

Yokomo B-Max4III Lightweight Spec combo kit

To celebrate the win of last weekend’s JMRCA 1/10th Buggy nationals Yokomo release a special combo set of their successful B-Max4III 4WD buggy. Based on the standard kit the set also includes the recently released lightweight chassis kit that allows to use both saddle and shorty LiPo batteries. While the standard kit is best used in low-grip conditions the lightweight chassis is designed for high-grip tracks with artificial surface such as astro turf or carpet. The Lightweight Spec combo kit therefore allows the driver to adapt the buggy to virtually every track condition right from the box. The kit will ship on August 1st.

Shepherd V10 differential gaskets

Shepherd V10 differential gaskets

Shepherd announce a new gasket for the gear differential of the V10 car. Together with a leading German sealing manufacturer Shepherd developed a gasket of a new shape and made from a special material. The new material combines the characteristics of a fibre gasket with the positive properties of an elastomer, thus making it possible to produce a gasket that allows for easy installation due to the stable surface tension, excellent adaptability to unevenness at minimum surface pressure levels and very low leakage levels even when surface pressure is extremely low. The new seals are also offer excellent temperature stability and they are available from now on.
