RC Maker have introduced a lightweight fan mount for the Awesomatix A800X touring car. Machined from premium 7075-T6 aluminium and coming anodised for wear, the mount can secure 30mm or 40mm fan units with no double sided tape or risk of falling off. It attaches to the spare hole located behind the motor on Awesomatix’s A800 and A800X and it weighs in at only 1g, making it the lightest, most durable solution to securing a fan.
Coming from Schumacher and made for the Mi6Evo touring car are new low 46mm front suspension mounts. Available as 1-piece and split variant, the mounts are of a -0.5mm design which lowers the suspension shafts for more front end both and greater setup opportunities. Included in the bags are enough 0.5mm washers to get back to the standard pin height. These parts have recently been used by the team in association with the narrow front hex #U3570 to give a smooth feel yet with good steering. The mounts are available separately from now on.
French brand Rusti Design has introduced a range of carbon fibre option parts for the Xray XB4 buggy. Currently available are 4mm front and rear shock towers as well as a 0.8mm carbon fibre rear wing stiffener. The shock towers use the same geometry as the stock parts, however they are of an updated design to make them stand out. As for the wing mount stiffener, the part will be sandwiched between the wing mount and wing, improving the strength of the while area while also ensuring a longer wing life when the action is getting rough.
Xray have introduced a 20T low-friction layshaft pulley for the T4 series of cars. The belt pulley is of a distinctive orange colour and precision-moulded for roundness and reliability while the specially formulated graphite material reduces overall friction. It comes in a set of two including suitable composite shims.
Coming from MIP and made for the Tekno RC EB410 1/10th scale 4WD buggy is a new aluminium Ackermann plate. The part is machined from U.S. grade 7075-T6 aluminium for strength and it c0mes hard-anodised for wear. The rigid structure ensures consistent steering characteristics and the plate is available for pre-order now.
7075.it from Italy have introduced their new X1201 battery positioning system for the Xray X12 pan car. Machined from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium and coming black anodised and with silver edge details the brace allows to adjust the battery position within a 5mm range all while using existing chassis holes and at 2g the brace also hardly adds any weight to the car.
Vigor RC have introduced an adjustable battery mount for the Xray T4 series of electric touring cars. The multi-piece assembly utilises specially designed, eccentric inserts that can be turned around to place the battery pack in a front or rear position as well as in a more inward or outward placement. The carbon fibre battery brackets allow to wrap the mounting tape around them to do away with the need to route the tape on the bottom of the chassis for less chances to create a tweaked chassis, and chamfered edges reduce the chance of the battery tape being cut.
Coming from Reflex Racing and made for the Team Associated TC7.1 touring car are three new top decks. First up is the vertical top deck kit that was designed to make the TC7.1 take advantage of the adjustment characteristic of a vertical frame top deck. Vertical top decks provide better forward bite due to the increased fore and aft rigidity of the chassis. They also provide for a platform where flex adjustment can be isolated at different points of the chassis through using stiffening posts which allows for a more adaptable flex characteristic based on the track conditions. The vertical top deck setup will excel in outdoor tracks with long sweeping corners and also indoors when used in high bite conditions. Additionally, when used with Reflex Racing’s pitch control system, it allows for fully symmetrical flex characteristic on the car.
