Black edition MyLaps transponders

Team Associated have introduced black edition MyLaps lap counting transponders. The Hybrid (2-wire) transponder is the same size and features many of the same specs as the RC4 transponder, but it is backwards compatible with older decoder boxes. This transponder does not support car ID numbers. It is compatible with all AMBrc2 decoder boxes and MyLaps RC3 and RC4 decoder boxes. The RC4 (3-wire) transponder is the latest in the line of transponders from MyLaps. The RC4 transponder supports car ID numbers so you can have the same transponder number in all your cars, with a different ID for each. The RC4 transponder also gives additional telemetry data such as voltage to the transponder and transponder temperature each time the loop is crossed. This transponder will only work on RC4 decoder boxes with version 4 firmware or higher.

Reedy Zappers SG competition LiHV battery packs

Team Associated have introduced their all-new Reedy Zappers SG LiHV battery packs. Their silicon graphene construction lowers internal resistance, increases voltage output, reduces operating temperatures, and improves cycle-life. Zappers SG batteries are available in low-profile (LP) stick and shorty versions as well as a 1S version designed for 1/12th scale and other classes that require the use of a 1S battery. A 7.6 nominal voltage means that with a suitable charger, the battery can be safely charged to 4.35V/cell. However, even when the typical 4.2V/cell charging limit is enforced, Zappers SG still offers a significant advantage thanks to a flatter discharge curve, which results in more voltage deeper into the race. A high-quality, durable hard case helps prevent damage while embedded socket connectors keep power-robbing resistance to a minimum. A charge lead and male ESC connectors are included.
