New from JTP, the brand of multi-time US National and 2013 IFMAR World Champion Jared Tebo, comes a carbon fibre front shock tower for the Kyosho RB6 as well as two new T-shirts. Starting with the shock tower, the part was designed and tested by Jared himself and it is of slightly other dimensions than the stock shock stay to allow for an alternative front geometry. The part is machined from high-quality carbon fibre and it was designed to offer a better front end feeling through corners and over obstacles as it improves the uptravel of the suspension. The shocks need to be converted to LA43 long shock ends and the tower is up for grabs now. Also new are two T-shirts, the black Race To Win and the blue Strike shirt. Both 100 percent cotton premium Next Level tees are screen printed in the USA and, like the shock tower, available here.

Pro-Line have a pre-cut Trifecta Lexan wing and a roll-up pit mat available soon. From the mind of World Champion and Pro-Line team driver Ty Tessmann, the 1/8th Trifecta Lexan wing brings a huge amount of weight savings to the highest part of the buggy and massively lowers your car’s centre of gravity. This results in faster corner speeds and reduces the chance of traction rolling when faced with high-bite track conditions. The 1:8 Trifecta Lexan wing design follows the tradition set by the 1/10th buggy wing and features three strengthening ribs and three dimples that hang down on each side creating a “golf ball aerodynamic effect” under the wing for added down force and reduced high speed drag. The set included the pre-cut wing and the centre fin piece as well as two different size wickerbills to tune the performance and downforce.
