Team Losi Temp Tuner

Team Losi Temp Tuner

Losi have obviously been shopping in the same place as Edit RC with the release of their Temp Tuner, a tool which incorporates both a temperature gauge and a tuning screwdriver into one. Featuring a state-of-the-art infrared, non-contact temperature gauge it includes a special silicone ring to ensure you position the gauge at the same location each time you check the temperature level of your car’s engine. The temperature gauge will measure temperatures of -27°F to 428°F, and can be set to measure in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. Spin the tool around and you have a high quality racer-designed tuning screwdriver, long enough to get into the smallest areas. The precision ground tip is wide, with the correct taper for making the finest needle adjustments with confidence.

Speed Merchant Formula Pro 10

Speed Merchant Formula Pro 10

Speed Merchant have released details about their soon to be released 1/10th scale 200mm electric pan car, the Forumla Pro 10. Designed to race at National level in the comeback Pro 10 class, this new car has been can only accept 4 cells, which the designer believes gives more benefit than running with 6 cells due to the fact that it only needs to run in 5 minute long heats, not to mention the weight advantage. Essentially an oversized 1/12th scale with pivot-ball link rear suspension as well as light weight carbon fibre throughout, it definitely looks the part. Expect to see it released in the first week of March.

Speed Passion Wireless Power

Speed Passion Wireless Power

Speed Passion have announced details of a future product line, which they say looks set to revolutionize both gas and electric R/C racing. Their rather criptic release states:

We are proud to bring the Power of freedom, “The wireless power”. “Reduction” is one of the ways to help to protect the Earth. Imagine playing with an R/C car, boat, or soft air gun without chargers, power supplies, and extra battery packs. No more worries about battery pack quality, and chasing constant small advances in battery capability and size. Saving you time and money and developing new ideas to improve your skills in order to enjoy the pure fun of R/C.

What product they are announcing I dont know, but the picture above shows version 1.2 of the Wireless Power prototype, which looks like a speed controller with battery inputs that has a built 2.4Ghz system, judging by the aerial. Speed Passion will release more details every month in the lead up to its 2009 release date.

JConcepts J82 Conversion kit

JConcepts J82 Conversion kit

JConcepts have introduced a revolutionary new vehicle concept, the J82, that combines the drivability of a 1/10th truck with the fascination of a buggy. Essentially a conversion kit for the Associated RC10T4 vehicle, the J82 provides the opportunity to race with more confidence for an extended period of time. With this conversion, a driver can now compete in two classes on the same day using just one vehicle. Jason Ruona stated-

Trucks have always been easier to drive making them a popular choice in competition. The buggy class has always been looked at as the more prestigious class – Now the World’s have collided.
