GForce Mini Break-in system

GForce Mini Break-in system

GForce introduce the Mini Break-in system for mini and micro-size brushed motors. Designed for the use with Tamiya’s Mini 4WD series of “slot cars”, the system is also usable for the brushed motors found in Kyosho’s Mini-Z or HPI’s Micro RS4 line of vehicles. The motor run-in system is housed in a sturdy case with a jog dial to adjust the output voltage and also a timer that stops the run-in process after a certain time. A non-slip foam pad and a velcro strap prevent the chassis or motor from moving around and the break-in device is powered by four AA-size batteries or an optional power supply.

Team C TC10 hard steering knuckles & rear hubs

Team C TC10 hard steering knuckles & rear hubs

Team C have more hard compound suspension parts available for the TC10 touring car kit. Following reinforced front and rear lower A-arms and C-hubs the company will soon also release hard steering knuckles and rear hubs. The parts come in handy when racing in high ambient temperatures or on high-bite tracks as the special composite material tends to flex less, resulting in a more precise steering feeling and improved rear traction. The suspension parts come as pairs and are direct replacements with the steering knuckles also offering an updated geometry with new steering Ackermann settings and added arm length.
