RSD R12SS 1/12th scale bodyshell

RSD R12SS 1/12th scale bodyshell

Reflex Racing introduce the R12SS 1/12th scale bodyshell. Developed and sculptured in-house and manufactured in the USA the design was modified several times during development to fine-tune the balance in order to achieve maximum drivability. At 32g to 35g the body is around 5g to 8g lighter than comparable lightweight bodies and it is meant to offer more high speed stability than an AMR-12 while having a little more low speed steering. The body is usable in both Stock and Modified classes, it is made from .020 Lexan material and available now.

Xray XB8 active centre differential

Xray XB8 active centre differential

Xray introduce the active centre differential for the XB8 1/8th off-road buggy. The adjustable gear diff is made to adapt the buggy’s handling characteristics both on-power and off-power by using different shape internals. The standard 90 degree parts provide a good balance between on and off-power as the diff closes and opens with a slight delay, making the standard setting best suited for high-grip or bumpy tracks. The optional 120 degree internals let the diff close or open immediately which is a setting best used on slippery or flat tracks. The set includes all needed parts and it fits the XB8’14, the XB8’15 and the XB8E.

O.S. Speed Tuned B2101 Ty Tessmann Edition engine

O.S. Speed Tuned B2101 Ty Tessmann Edition engine

Ty Tessmann tore up the track at the 2014 IFMAR 1/8 Scale Off-Road World Championships running an O.S. Speed Tuned B2101 engine tailored to his winning specs. Now O.S. makes that same setup available to other drivers — in the Ty Tessmann Limited Edition Speed Tuned B2101. The engine features the same tuned pipe, manifold and carb restrictor used by Ty to win the 2014 IFMAR Championships. Its T-2090SC pipe is paired with an M2002SC manifold whose added length increases torque in the low to middle range. The 5.8mm restrictor — not available on any other O.S. engine — matches what O.S. supplied to Ty for extending run time in competition. Like the standard B2101, this version has a lowered cylinder head, DLC crankshaft with balanced tungsten weights, and a Type 21J carburettor. Only a small number are being produced, making this engine both competitive and collectible. The Ty Tessmann Limited Edition Speed Tuned B2101 is easy to distinguish from the standard model due to the natural-colour cylinder head and Ty’s name laser-etched onto the crankcase, crankshaft and tuned pipe.
