Teamsaxo GT-500 1/10th RWD kit

New from Teamsaxo comes the GT-500 1/10th pan car kit for rubber tyres.

The car is based on a carbon fibre chassis that accepts both standard and shorty LiPo packs and it features a large volume centre shock absorber, dual tube side dampers and a highly adjustable front end. Also included in the kit, that will become available in mid-September, is a heavy-duty ball differential and a steel rear axle.

Tamiya Raybrig NSX Concept-GT TB-04 kit

TamiyaRaybrigNSXConceptGT

Tamiya announce the release of the Raybrig NSX Concept-GT kit on the TB-04 chassis. The kit is based on a shaft-driven chassis, the differentials inside the gearboxes are newly designed as they utilize a sealed gear differential system whereby the internal gears movement is controlled by different viscosity differential fluids. The double-wishbone suspension system makes use of the same short reversible type that has been used on the TB-03, TA-05 Version II, TA-06 and the TRF416 and 417 World Championship machines. The TB-04 also incorporates the IFS inboard front suspension whereby the front shocks are positioned horizontally and low to the chassis, so that low profile sports car body shapes can be accurately reproduced without losing any realistic scale appearance. Included in the kit is a clear NSX Concept-GT shell with full decal sheet.
