JConcepts Smoothies 1/10th buggy slick tyres

JConcepts Smoothies 1/10th buggy slick tyres

JConcepts introduce the Smoothies 1/10th buggy slick tyres. In some conditions in off-road racing slick tyres are the fastest way around the track. In damp weather, indoor clay surfaces become so tacky that the lower the tread or to the point of zero tread is an advantage. For years drivers have sanded, ground and hand sculpted tires in search of that elusive slick carcass for racing. Released as a 60mm bead mounting diameter, the JConcepts Smoothies mount straight to the latest generation wheels for that all important reactive feel. The carefully profiled tyre carcass rolls through the turns with efficiency while the maximum smooth surface area grips the surface. The tyres include Dirt-Tech 60mm inserts and they are available as 2WD front end 2WD/4WD rear tyre in Gold compound.

Capricorn TE02 V2 motor mount system

Capricorn TE02 V2 motor mount system

Capricorn release first information on the V2 motor mount system for the TE02 touring car kit. Making use of a CNC-machined mono block for the motor and layshaft mount the construction gives the rear part of the chassis a different flex characteristic. By the looks of things the layshaft mount allows for several top deck flex settings as the upper deck can be coupled or decoupled from the mounts while a centre post in front of the motor further enhances the flex setting possibilities. The motor mount is fixed to the new 89mm wide chassis using four screws and the new upper deck is available in a soft 1.6mm and a hard 2.0mm version. The V2 system, that should become available very soon, will increase overall traction and mid corner speed.

ARC R10 2015 ATS kit

ARC R10 2015 ATS kit

ARC introduce the latest version of their popular R10 4WD touring car in the form of the R10 2015 ATS kit. The vehicle features the newly developed ATS Active Toe System, a design seen on many current touring cars these days. The ATS allows to adjust the toe angle change of the rear wheels during cornering in a range of up to 1.5 degree to provide more on-power steering and better rotation through the corner in order to minimise understeer. Part of the kit is a special ATS base plate that not only holds the drag links but it also acts as a stiffening plate as it allows to use two or four mounting screws to fix the plate to the chassis, making rear flex adjustment possible. Included with the kit comes the ATS system with standard hardness A-arms, aluminium C-hubs, composite knuckles as well as all parts to run a standard arm rear setup. On top of that the ATS version kit comes with dual joint front driveshafts, and an aluminium front belt tensioner. For owners of the standard R10 2015 an ATS upgrade kit is available.
