Picco Torque .12 EMX-WC touring engine

Picco Torque .12 EMX-WC engine

Picco introduce the Torque .12 EMX-WC Edomodified X-type World Championship replica Touring racing engine that has been developed with the upcoming 1/10th Nitro World Championships in mind. The engine is completely redesigned and comes with a new long stroke layout to deliver great power over the entire RPM range, good fuel efficiency, and improved mid-range acceleration. The front ball bearing has been replaced with a 7mm inner diameter one and the components have been “hand modified” by Edoardo Picco using his extensive experience. The engine features a balanced 12mm “turbo” silicone-filled crankshaft for improved fuel flow and reduced weight, a super aligned “knife edged” aerodynamic connecting rod, a hand finished hard chromed brass liner with tear-trop work on the ports, and a lightened CNC machined piston made from high percentage silicone alloy billet. Other parts used include a large size finned turbo combustion chamber insert for better heat dissipation, new ultra light weight cooling head with an extra fin, hand modified rear back plate for improved fuel flow, Swiss quality 12mm main bearing and a composite slide carburettor with 5.4mm venturi inserts.

Fast Race 1/8th buggy tyre cutter

From Fast Race and made to cut 1/8th buggy tyres off their wheel is this tyre cut device.

Star Plug T-type high-current connectors

Star Plug T-type high-current connectors

New from Hobbico come the Star Plug T-type high-current connectors. Compatible with the iconic Deans Ultra Plug they sport an updated design that does away with the need to use shrink tube on the exposed terminals as they are covered by a snap-on back cap cover. A tapered shape and grip strips make for fast and easy separation of the male and female part while gold-plated male terminals allow for excellent conductivity and nickel-plated female terminals improve wear resistance and life. The plugs are usable with up to 12AWG wire when using the back covers and with thicker 10AWG wire without covers.
