JConcepts Ford Atlas SCT bodyshell

JConcepts Ford Atlas SCT bodyshell

JConcepts introduce the Ford Atlas SCT Absolute Scaler bodyshell. Specifically built for the Traxxas Slash and Slash 4×4 chassis it provides even more versatility to the wildly successful platforms. Fitting bumper to bumper, the body has all the possible detail of its full-scale counterpart starting behind that outsized grille. Split headlight design with corner reveal turn signal points the Atlas in the right direction while edgy hood detail bulks around the fenders to provide plenty of clearance for an assortment of SCT tyres. The extra cab look is defined by the recessed windows and the roof has a unique centre channel and extruded touches emulating the roof-carrying system shown on the prototype Atlas vehicle. The bed and fender area maintain a couple features that pique interest including sculpted out areas which look the part of the tie-downs on cargo walls and bed floor which are so commonplace in today’s pickup trucks. The Atlas includes a decal sheet for headlight, taillight with Ford and Atlas logos throughout. Decal trimmings include miscellaneous JConcepts logos, door handles, exhaust tips and running lights.

Xray XB8 active centre differential

Xray XB8 active centre differential

Xray introduce the active centre differential for the XB8 1/8th off-road buggy. The adjustable gear diff is made to adapt the buggy’s handling characteristics both on-power and off-power by using different shape internals. The standard 90 degree parts provide a good balance between on and off-power as the diff closes and opens with a slight delay, making the standard setting best suited for high-grip or bumpy tracks. The optional 120 degree internals let the diff close or open immediately which is a setting best used on slippery or flat tracks. The set includes all needed parts and it fits the XB8’14, the XB8’15 and the XB8E.
