T-Works have introduced a range of lightweight aluminium wheel nuts for the Mugen MBX series of buggies and GT cars. The wheel hex adapters are machined from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium and they come hard-coated for wear. Excessive machining greatly reduces the overall weight for lower rotational masses while adding a bit of visual impact at the same time. The wheel hubs are available as a 4-piece 0mm offset set and also as 2-piece +1mm or +2mm sets that help to increase the track width when conditions call for it. All three types are usable with kits such as the MBX8, MBX7/R, MGT7 and MBX6.

All are cut from high-quality aluminium, they sport a hard-anodised surface for wear and are Molybdenum-coated for minimised friction.
Made for Muchmore’s Fleta Euro V2 speed controller is a dedicated aluminium capacitor mount. The item is machined from high-quality aluminium and it was designed to conveniently hold the single capacitor of the Euro V2 speedo.

All parts are machined from high-grade 7075-T6 aluminium, they come hard-coated for wear and looks, laser-etched for easy identification and they are available separately.
Italian company RC-Project have introduced new lower shock screws and uni balls for the Tekno NB48 and EB48 series of off-road kits. Starting with the lower shock mounting screws, they are machined from 7075-T6 Ergal material and they feature an optimised overall diameter to ensure a better connection between the pin, arm and lower shock eyelet ball. In addition the thread diameter has been enlarged by 0.05mm to ensure the screws are sitting tight even in used suspension arms. The hard-coated screws are supplied in colour-coded and marked left and right hand thread variants to ensure they will not come loose accidentally during use.
