Motiv RC Black Out charge harness

Motiv RC Black Out charge harness

Motiv RC’s new Black Out charge harness is all-black to match any colour pit station. It uses the patent pending TQ Wire 4 to 5mm step bullet-type connectors, allowing to charge 4mm or 5mm bullet plug packs with the same lead. The ends are colour coded at the bullet’s using shrink wrap to designate positive and negative polarity. It also boasts 200 degree Celsius wire that allows to charge at higher amps if desired and at 2 feet long it allows to charge out of the way to keep the pit area clean. The harness also features extra length added to the most common XH balance plug which allows to reach the balance port without putting added stress on the wires.

Exotek Exo22 TLR 22 mid motor chassis sets

Exotek Exo22 TLR 22 mid motor chassis sets

Coming from Exotek and made for the TLR 22 and 22 2.0 are two new mid motor chassis sets. Available in an aluminium and a carbon fibre variant the chassis allows for a range of battery layouts including the standard inline and a new lateral shorty position with the latter making the car easy to drive fast. The 3mm 7075 aluminium chassis variant will offer the most stability, traction and the lowest centre of gravity while the carbon fibre variant is very light of weight and very responsive. Both sets make use of new 5mm carbon side rails, they utilise a special easy access carbon fibre LiPo battery mount and the alloy gearbox brace is positioned further back to allow improved rearward battery positioning. The included, machined 7075 alloy nose plate is used for durability reasons and allows inexpensive chassis swaps between alloy and carbon fibre. Due to the larger footprint chassis the conversion requires a Kyosho RB6 compatible bodyshell for better battery clearance.

Shepherd Velox V8 hard-coated alloy wheel axles

Shepherd have introduced new option parts for the Velox V8 in the form of hard-coated wheel axles that reduce the rotating mass by around 50 percent to improve the acceleration and overall handling of the car.
