STRC have introduced more aluminium option parts for Arrma’s line of 1/10th scale 2WD vehicles. The new launch includes aluminium front and rear shock tower braces, heavy duty front skid plates, and machined aluminium hex adapters for the front and the rear. The shock tower braces greatly improve the durability of the upper shock mounting location and eliminates flex of the shock tower while the CNC-machined front skid plate is made out of thick high-quality aluminium to take a lot more abuse than the stock plastic piece and to provide much better protection to the front hinge-pin area. The CNC-machined aluminium hex adapters feature set-screws that pins the hex adapters to the axle so the hex adapter does not fall off and cause to lose the drive pin when removing the wheels. The components are available in anodised blue, gun metal and red.
Coming from Arrowmax is a 4000mAh 7.4V 2S low-profile LiPo battery pack. Built using high-performance 55C/110C cells the battery is of 139x47x22.5mm dimensions, allowing for an overall lower centre of gravity compared to standard 25.1mm hardcase packs. The battery makes use of 5mm bullet type connectors and it is usable in both Modified and Stock racing classes.
New from BMT and made for the 984 1/8th on-road car are the Evo chassis and several front anti-roll bar wires. Starting with the chassis, the main plate is machined from high-quality aluminium and it makes use of a new front suspension geometry, improving steering in both low and high speed corners and it also utilises a new battery plate position for an optimised weight balance. As for the three front anti-roll bar wires, they are available in 2.0mm, 2.3mm and 2.5mm diameter and help to fine-tune the roll characteristics of the chassis.
Revolution Design Racing Products have introduced a 2.5mm carbon fibre main chassis plate for the Xray XB2 buggy. 0.5mm thicker than the standard alloy chassis, the carbon fibre part offers optimised flex characteristics, especially aimed at low to medium-grip clay tracks. On top of this the increased thickness also adds much needed strength to the rear end of the chassis, doing away with breaking issues. The limited edition chassis fits both the carpet and dirt edition kits and it is available now.
Serpent have introduced a low-friction belt pulley set for the 977 1/8th on-road car. Made using a new composite material that creates a super-smooth surface the pulleys make for a more efficient drivetrain and thus overall improved performance. Due to the material being a bit softer than the standard black parts the wear rate is slightly increased. Included in the set come all needed front, side and rear pulleys.
Following the a 10.5T version Scorpion now also introduced a 13.5T variant of their all-new RR-3420 ROAR-spec brushless motor. Designed using a black anodised aluminium high-airflow can and a 12.5mm high-torque rotor the spec racing motor is made for competition use and it currently awaits ROAR approval. Apart from being of 13.5T specifications the motor sports the same features as the faster 10.5T variant with a screw-type rotor surface for cooling, high-grade silicon steel stator material and high-purity copper wires.
Coming from Trinity is a range of balance charge cables and option parts for the Team Associated B6-series of buggies. Starting with the Pro Hi-Amp charge cables, they are available in a short 12 inch, 30cm variant with white sleeve and also as longer 24 inch, 60cm harness with green sleeve. Both are of an updated design with with battery-side wires splitting further back for more flexibility. The cables come pre-wired using high-temp solder, 5mm battery and 4mm bullet-type charger connectors.
