Coming from Xray and made for the RX8 on-road kits are 3x20mm and 3x22mm titanium wheel axle drive pins. The parts are machined from high-quality titanium material, they come precision ground for best possible fit and they are 40 percent lighter than the stock steel shafts. The pins come in sets of two and they are available now.
Coming from RPM and made for the Traxxas E-Rustler is a green rear bumper kit. The bumper is designed to protect the rear of the chassis, the motor and the body, all while still allowing the use of a stock Traxxas wheelie bar. Additionally, if the owner decides to run without the wheelie bar, the rear bumper is so versatile, it’ll adapt and allow either configuration. The part is made of green heavy duty nylon and requires an optional Traxxas or RPM bumper mount to install. The assembly works with most known Traxxas Rustler bodies, however aftermarket or non-standard bodies may require trimming for proper fit.
Following a couple of teaser images Xray have finally introduced their all-new pan car gear differential sets for 1/10th and 1/12th on-road cars. The lightweight gear diff will increase on-power steering and traction especially in high to very high bite conditions while being virtually maintenance-free due to a complex sealing system. In addition the whole assembly is super efficient and smooth, which further improves the car’s overall performance. The diffs come as complete kits to replace the standard ball differentials, with no extra parts needed and they are available for Xray’s X12 1/12th pan cars, X10 200mm 1/10th kits as well as the X1 1/10th formula chassis.
Coming from IGT8 and made for their 1/8th GT cars is a 12 degree aluminium hub carrier set. The items are machined from 7075-T6 aluminium and come red anodised to match the remainder of the alloy option parts. Using the steering knuckle carriers will improve on-power steering compared to the 10 degree carriers.
Coming from T-Works and made for the Mugen MBX8 Eco 1/8th electric buggy are two new screw sets. First up is a 156-piece set of 64-grade titanium fasteners that includes UFO button head screws. The bolts are highly corrosion resistant, they scrub a good amount of weight and also add a bit of visual impact. The second new kit is a 167-piece set of gold-colour steel screws. Keeping the weight the same as the standard kit screws the set mainly adds a bit of bling.
Italian company BMT have introduced their new special brake pads for the 016GT 1/8th GT car. The pads are cladded with genuine Ferodo material as known from full scale cars, meaning they will offer greatly improved stopping performance and durability. The pads come in sets of two and they are available now.
T-Works have introduced two new sets of exhaust pipe springs for on-road and off-road vehicles. The springs come pre-bent and are usable with a wide range of kits. Each set contains two springs that can be cut to size if needed.
Coming from Bezerk RC is an asphalt-specific carbon fibre chassis for the CRC CK25 1/12th scale pan car. Designed for low to medium grip levels the main plate offers more flex while the geometry is kept the same but Bezerk reduced the width in many areas, front, mid and rear. The large front window adds more steering and overall added flex improves grip at both ends. Made from 2.5mm carbon with a traditional weave the chassis weighs in at just under 49g. The main plate only suits the conventional servo position and like all Bezerk products it can be customised to suit special needs.
