Shepherd Velox V10 gearshaft brace

Shepherd Velox V10 gearshaft brace

Shepherd’s new Velox V10 gearshaft brace is CNC-machined from German top-grade 2mm graphite. Similar to the one used for the Velox V8 it connects the gearbox bulkheads to stiffen up this area. This prevents binding the the axle bearings and results in a smoother transmission especially under high load.

CS Electronic CSX Stock Spec

CS Electronic CSX Stock Spec

CS Electronic’s new Competition CSX stock spec speed controller is a highly updated version of their 2009 World Championship winning CS Rocket speedo. Especially designed for stock racing classes the new controller offers special power programs and a 9.5T motor limit. Smaller dimensions and lower weight as well as a modular design make for an easier installation in the car. Depending on weather conditions, or the motor used, the heat sink or fan can be added to the CSX to lower operating temperatures. The three power capacitors now reside on a separate board for easier installation and exchange. New solder tabs for the power wires makes changing them a breeze. Software-wise the speedo offers 6 modified programs, 4 ‘outlaw’ stock power programs and 4 ‘legal’ stock programs. Usable with both sensor and sensorless motors CS Electronic’s new controller also offers a PC interface for easy update and storage ability.

Team Grid RC RC8 motor mount

Team Grid RC RC8 motor mount

Team Grid RC have released this new motor mount for the RC8Be, RC8Te and SC8e designed with racers in mind. One of the visual things you will notice is an integrated pinion support for the motor shaft. By placing the pinion support at the end of the pinion gear, the motor can now withstand the punishing loads it is subject to during intensive racing conditions.  By machining the pinion support into a single unit, the mount is precise and very durable. For added performance, the Grid motor mount has incorporated multiple mounting holes to utilize more than two mounting screws. If you currently run Tekin motors, the Grid motor mount will use 5 of the available 6 holes. If you use the Neu/Castle motors, the Grid motor mount will use 3 of the 4 available holes. By adding more mounting screws, it is strengthening the setup and reducing the chance of any motor coming loose during hard racing conditions. Instead of using a sliding mesh setup, Team Grid has opted for a cam style mount, which provides a more precise mesh adjustment, and once set, the mesh will hold until you need to change it. Team Grid will also be releasing motor mounts for Losi, Mugen, Xray and others.
