Tekno have introduced the high roll centre HRC rear hubs for the SCT.3 and SL kits. By lowering the hinge pin location compared to the stock rear hubs the HRC uprights offer a raised the rear roll centre. Using the hubs increase on-power traction and stability while decreasing body roll. All of this with improved rotation into a corner and no compromise in on-power steering. To reduce wear and increase part lifespan, the hubs are moulded from durable nylon and they are for the use on the SCT410.3 and EB48SL vehicles.

Techra have introduced a range of aluminium suspension mounts for Tamiya’s TRF cars. They are machined from high-quality aluminium and utilise a composite insert system, doing away with the need to use individual mounts to create alternative suspension settings.

Coming from R1 Wurks is the new Digital 2 brushless speed controller. Rated at 200A constant current, the controller is usable with modified motors down to 3.0T but a blinky mode for zero timing spec racing makes it usable for non-boosted classes also. Several boost and turbo functions add to the extensive software features that include power delivery and brake strength settings. The unit also features the A.C.L.C. Advanced Component Level Cooling system, this design allows individual Mosfets to transfer heat directly to the upper heatsink. The power switch-less safety first system forces the user to disconnect the battery when its time to power off the controller, minimising the chances of leaving a live battery from draining. The controller is housed in a black anodised case with a specially designed heatsink and it is adjustable using a digital programming box.
The Border have introduced the BRP Supastox brushed motor mount for the Schumacher GT12 car. Made from high-quality fibre glass and coming including the necessary hardware, the mount allows to use cheap brushed motors, making for even lower running costs of this already relatively inexpensive class.
