VBC Racing Firebolt DM 2WD buggy kit

VBC Racing Firebolt DM 2WD buggy kit

VBC Racing have released first renderings of their forthcoming Firebolt DM 2WD off-road buggy. The company’s first buggy kit features a slim aluminium chassis with composite sidepods, “gullwing” front and rear wishbones, aluminium big-bore shock absorbers and – by the looks of things – carbon fibre front and rear shock towers. Given the images, many of the suspension settings are adjustable using threaded inserts and a brace on front of the mid motor allowed the use of a fan unit for improved cooling in hot ambient temperatures. Although the images only show the mid motor variant it is understood that the Firebolt will feature a convertible gearbox design to run the buggy in rear motor configuration also. The kit will hit the stores this Summer and we bring you more information as soon as we get them.

MIP TLR 22 2.0 Stock & Modified Pucks drive system

MIP TLR 22 2.0 Stock & Modified Pucks drive system

MIP introduce two new Pucks drive systems for the TLR 22 2.0 buggy. First up is the lightweight 17.5 drive system specially designed for Stock racing as it makes use of lightweight C-CVD aluminium driveshafts and Lite Drive aluminium outdrives, scrubbing around 50 percent of overall rotation mass. The Shiny drive system for Modified racing relies on the more robust “Shiny” steel C-CVD shafts and steel outdrives. Both kits make use of MIP’s Pucks system that offers a greatly increased contact patch between the driveshaft’s drive pin and the differential outdrives for a smoother operating drivetrain while offering easier maintenance at the same time. Both the Stock and Modified kit include a pair of driveshafts with wheel axles, differential outdrives, diff rings and balls, the Pucks assembly as well as several small parts.
