Max Power 2664 touring car pipe

Max Power 2664 touring car pipe

Max Power in Italy have released their new touring car pipe (EFRA 2664), which now fits perfectly into the Serpent 733. The EFRA 2649 exhaust, which had a long style shape, had a excellent result at the 2009 European Championships, but was too long to fit into the new car from Serpent due to its more forward mounted engine and so the new exhaust solves this issue and yet retains the same characteristics as the longer version.

Team Titan Blitz RS4 & ISF2.0 200mm shells

Team Titan Blitz RS4 & ISF2.0 200mm shells

More new shells from Team Titan who have released two new 200mm gas on road shells with the introduction of the all new Blitz RS4 and ISF2.0. The EFRA Homologated (EFRA2036) RS4 is based on the company’s Mini RS4 shell and is designed to be very well balanced, easy to drive and with good steering. The supplied adjustable wing has 2 cut lines, the larger giving more down force which makes for a very stable car but a little less steering, while the smaller wing is recommended for pro drivers. The ISF2.0 features more downforce than its predecessor, meaning more steering and stability, while thanks to its low profile hood and roof it has less drag for better top speeds. Because most 1/10 touring cars need to open the front side window for more cooling and fueling, a specially designed windscreen and roof shape will eliminate turbulence caused by this open side window. EFRA homologated with number EFRA 2037.
