New from Trinity come 48 pitch pinion gears and a charging lead for 2S LiPo battery packs. Starting with the pinions, the ultra-light and hard anodised aluminium gears are designed mainly for off-road racing and they come in 17T to 45T sizes with the tooth number being etched into the gears for easy identification. Machined to the tightest tolerances the gears run very true and they allow for quicker spool up thanks to a lower rotation mass compared to steel pinions.

Muchmore introduce their new line of Fleta ZX Sting “Outlaw” brushless stock motors. Offering a patented sintered Neodymium rotor design and short stack stators the motors are meant to offer up to 30 percent more power compared to a legal motor. Available as 13.5T, 17.5T and 21.5T variant all motors are built using the Flow-Max II all-aluminium can for improved airflow and cooling and they sport a distinctive red anodized aluminium timing plate for even better heat dissipation. The motors also feature Grade 5 bearings, silver-plated heavy duty solder tabs and sensor connector protective guards. The outlaw variants are designed for “open” stock racing as they do not comply with the current IFMAR, ROAR, BRCA or JMRCA rules.

New from Pro-Tek R/C come the all-new 2015 Supreme Power 100C LiPo battery packs. They are lighter, safer and more powerful thanks to an improved chemical composition of the cells. The LiPos are meant to perform effortlessly when charged to the standard 4.2 volts per cell as the new chemistry uses high-density materials that provide additional heat shielding, thus providing a much safer battery pack that is less prone to puffing under demanding race conditions. Each ProTek R/C LiPo battery has been optimized for its intended application so there is no need for the extra weight in the car if the pack’s entire capacity is not used during the course of a qualifier or main event. As a bonus, a set of 5mm to 4mm adapters are included with each battery that features 5mm bullet connectors. A range of configurations is available including 2S standard, 2S square and saddle packs, 2S shorty and 2S low-profile “pan car” batteries as well as 1S “pan car” and 4S standard and light packs.
