Losi XXX-SCT rolling chassis

The 1/10-scale XXX-SCT from Losi is ready to take on the short course. As a ROAR-legal rolling chassis, it comes out of the box completely pre-assembled with wheels and tyres. Electronics and motor is the choice of the driver and this means that from the standpoint of putting a race car on the track this all important choice is left to the guy that matters, the driver. It is also a considerable saving for those who want a ready built chassis but would rather choose the type of electronics combination themselves. Another race trait, the body shell supplied is clear. So, all ready to take that all important colour scheme that individualizes the truck and makes it stand out in a race.

Sanwa HR-141 digital 1/12 servo

Sanwa has introduced the follow up to the popular 1/12 Sanwa HR-141 servo, with the release of the SRG-HR. Due to its extremely small dimensions and its low weight of only 22g, the new digital servo fits in almost every 1/12 model. It is also ideally suited for the more and more popular HPI and Tamiya Formula 1 cars. Quick and ultra precise, the Sanwa SRG-HR can be operated with 6.0V and also with 7.4V (nominal voltage) and there’s no need for a voltage transformer for LiPo receiver batteries anymore. The receiver forwards the full 7.4V to the servos, making it especially strong and super fast.
