Arrowmax have new aluminium wing mounts for 1/10th on-road vehicles available. Machined from aluminium and sporting the Arrowmax logo the plates offer a larger mounting surface than most of the standard wing mounting hardware supplied with the bodyshells. This makes for a more sturdy rear wing mounting as the plates are of a 2-screw design and yet small enough to not disturb the air flow. Coming including mounting hardware the mounts are available in purple, orange and gray colour.

The latest vehicle to receive the JConcepts Silencer bodyshell treatment is the Kyosho ZX6. The body features a profiled, Finnisher stance cockpit and forward raised side-pod to give the Silencer an immediate fighting appearance. A smooth, high-speed transition around the cab keeps the body heading in the right direction and a slight recess just behind the cab with channelling out the rear provides rear-end stability. The Silencer side-pods have a clipped rear-end, narrowing the rear by angling in just in front of the rear tyres. The rear side-pods angle sharply toward the shock tower and wing, enhancing the force placed on the rear pods during high-speed acceleration. The body is capped off with a cockpit shark fin for more high-speed tracking stability and increased roof stiffness. The package includes two 6.5″ Hi-Clearance wings pre-marked for the ZX6 for the easiest application.

JConcepts introduce the Finnisher design bodyshell for the TLR 22T 2.0 stadium truck. The slight cab forward, raked windshield and aggressive stance highlight a performance oriented core. A revised front hood scoop allows plenty of clearance for the unique 22T geometry while smoothing out the front down force area. A front chin spoiler, headlight and grill protect the front-end from unwanted up-drafts during flight while the supplied decals detail stand-out like an 18 wheeler. Like the ROAR National Champion Hi-Flow SCT body, the Finnisher body has built-in air escape passages which allow the customer to fine-tune the body for maximum outdoor performance. Included is also a high performance gurney spoiler which increases rear grip and balances the handling characteristics of the aggressively styled body.

Made for the Vaterra Ascender as well as Axial 1.9″ trucks is the new JConcepts Ford Atlas trail bodyshell. The look of the Atlas is unmistakable contemporary Built Ford Tough, with bulging wheel arches, a drop-down beltline at the front doors, and some of the biggest snarling grille nostrils ever seen on an F-150. The Atlas body is specifically built for the Vaterra and Axial 12-12.3″ wheelbase chassis, providing even more versatility to the platforms. Fitting bumper to bumper, the body has all the possible detail of its full-scale counterpart starting behind that oversized grille. Split headlight design with corner reveal turn signal points the Atlas in the right direction while edgy hood detail bulks around the wide-body fenders to provide plenty of clearance for an assortment of large 1.9″ tires. The extra cab look is defined by the recessed windows and the roof has a unique center channel and extruded touches emulating the roof-carrying system shown on the prototype Atlas vehicle.

Italian company WRC will soon have a new 1/10th Formula body and new tyres and wheels available. Little is known about the new parts beside what can be seen in the image but the body looks pretty 2015-ish with its low and channelled nose design while the tyres seem to make use of a lower profile tyre wall and larger diameter rims, resembling Pirelli’s 2014 18 inch test wheels. No release date is know yet but we bring you more information as soon as they surface.
