Shepherd Velox V10 Ackermann plate & linkage parts

Shepherd Velox V10 Ackermann plate & linkage parts

Shepherd have a new option part for the Velox V10 Pro 200mm nitro on-road car available in the form of an updated steering Ackermann plate and linkage parts. Due to a much smaller steering differential angle, the new 8mm servo saver Ackermann plate provides even more steering and a completely different, more aggressive overall handling. Prototypes have been successfully tested at the this year’s European and World Championships and also at the ENS in Fiorano with a higher corner speed noticed by all drivers. The servo saver Ackermann plate is available as a set including new 4.9mm uniballs and ball joints or as a single part from now on. The new uniballs and ball joints are also available separately as a replacement of the standard parts to eliminate play in the V8 and V10 steering linkage while allowing smooth operation.

HPI D812 V2 caster block sets & V2 air filter set

HPI D812 V2 caster block sets & V2 air filter set

HPI Racing have two new option parts for the HB D812 available such as the V2 caster block sets and an updated air filter set. Starting with the C-hubs, coming as 15, 17.5 or 20 degree variant the parts are an easy option to alter the steering characteristic of the buggy. Machined from billet aluminium for strength and durability the hubs come black anodised and marked for easy identification. The parts need to be used with HPI’s 4 degree steering block set and fit the D812 only. Also new is the V2 air filter set, featuring a standard cylinder shape combined with dual-element design. A low-profile double-elbow connector keeps the air filter mounted low on the chassis for less movement and extra durability. The set will fit any D8-series buggy and the D8T Tessmann Edition truggy kit.

Yeah Racing GC301 drift car gyro

Yeah Racing GC301 drift car gyro

Yeah Racing introduce their GC301 gyro for the use with drift cars. The compact device measures 21x21x11mm, it weighs 3.6g and connects between the receiver and the steering servo. The adjustable heading hold function keeps the car stable during cornering but it maintains full manoeuvrability and car control. The amount of gain can be adjusted using the third channel on the transmitter or by using the gyro’s potentiometer. The device is usable for other on-road and off-road applications also but when used in a race event you need to check for legality.

Exotek B5 Flite motor plate & rear ballstud mount

Exotek B5 Flite motor plate & rear ballstud mount

Exotek have two new aluminium option parts for the Team Associated B5 and B5M buggy available in the form of the vented Flite motor plate and an aluminium rear ballstud mount for the B5M mid motor buggy. Starting with the motor plate, the CNC-machined part sports aggressive machining to make the part not only 6.5g lighter than the stock motor plate but to also improve motor and slipper heat dissipation. The critical motor mounting area was left out with machining to maintain a solid base for motor mounting and gear mesh adjusting. The part, that is available in blue and black colour, is designed for the use on indoor clay and carpet environments but a shaved bottom allows for debris discharge if needed.
