JConcepts have officially introduced the ROAR National Championship winning Finnisher bodyshell for the TLR 8ight-T 4.0 nitro off-road truggy. A drop fit on to the 4.0 variant of TLR’s successful racing truck the body incorporates pre-dimpled locations and it features a slight cab forward design with raked windshield and an aggressive stance. The body incorporates a large centre fin which begins on the roof line and finishes just past the half-way point on the bed. Extended front chin spoiler, headlight and grill protect the frontend from unwanted up-drafts during flight and the body also has a built-in air escape passage on the roof which allows the customer to fine-tune the body for maximum outdoor performance. The new body includes champion rear name plates which provide additional high-speed stability and improved positioning of the rear bed rails to strengthen the assembly. As usual the body comes clear, including window masks and a decal sheet.

Made from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 material and sporting a heavy-duty design the shock stays are both lightweight and durable while offering increased stiffness compared to the standard carbon fibre shock towers which leads to improved steering and traction. Both the front and rear tower come grey anodised, they are laser-etched, sport multiple shock and camber link mounting holes and they are available separately.
Scorpion keeps releasing more winding options of their newly introduced RR-3420 competition brushless motor. Offering the same features as the previously released variants the 21.5T motor comes with a 12.5mm high-torque rotor for high braking power and performance while keeping the operation temperatures low. The motor is built to meet ROAR specifications and it is available now.

Designed to protect the electronics from dirt and rocks the mesh cover fits like a glove around the chassis tub and it is easily fastened using velcro-backed tape. A zipper along the centre line allows for easy battery changes without the need to remove the whole cover.
Coming from MIP and made for Team Associated’s B6 2WD buggy is the Roller Pucks bi-metal drive system. It features two-piece bi-metal outdrives that are comprised of both 7075–T6 aluminium and high-grade heat tempered machine steel to shred 30 percent off of the OEM rotating mass, which equates to quicker acceleration without compromising strength. Being that the diff outputs are steel, it is fully compatible with the popular MIP Roller Pucks which have a 360 degree wear pattern and are 100 percent replaceable. The system is ideal for racers using 10.5T motors or higher and it not only fits the new B6 but also the older B5 and B5M. The kit includes all needed parts to perform the conversion minus the stock diff gear, wheel axles and CVA rebuild kit.
X Factory have introduced their new Infinity carbon idler shafts for the RB5 and RB6 line of 1/10th 2WD vehicles. The shafts are exactly 5mm in diameter and they replace the somewhat undersized original parts that can lead to idler gear failures due to the bearings wobbling on the shaft. The Infinity items are made from high-quality carbon material and they are of a hollow design, making for slight weight savings.
JConcepts have introduced the S2 Worlds bodyshell for the TLR 22 3.0 buggy. The follow-up version of the popular Silencer body rocks some familiar features but rolled together with a low-profile stance. Slammed overall height allows the S2 to whisk through the turns with a low centre of mass while the progressive cab design provides plenty of front-end force for superior balance and steering. A channeled roof directs the flow through the centre of the body while also increasing the rigidity of cockpit. The upper side-pods feature distinct vents used to help relieve hot air build-up inside the body while carved and detailed side-pods edge the body giving the highly aero unit a stylish look with and tight fit and finish. The body, available in a regular and lightweight variant, is built to accommodate the TLR laydown transmission, giving all out performance. As usual the body comes clear, including window masks and decal sheet and it includes two 6.5″ Finnsiher rear wings.
