JConcepts B5 series aluminium steering bellcranks

JConcepts B5 series aluminium steering bellcranks

JConcepts has the steering system on the B5, B5M and T5M covered with an all new light-weight, aluminium steering bellcrank assembly. The servo saver-less aluminium steering system is CNC-machined and replaces the stock plastic bellcranks to provide a more rigid assembly for increased steering feel and response. Furthermore the fit of the new bell-cranks has been improved by the positioning of the bearings to help eliminate binding when assembled. The parts come in a blue or black anodised finish and sport machined chamfered silver edges and engraved JC logos. The steering bell-cranks also include two thin crush tubes which should be placed in between the bearings on the stock plastic or aftermarket aluminium steering rack.

Tamiya TB Evo.6 Black Version chassis kit

Tamiya’s TB Evo.6 4WD shaft driven touring car kit will soon also become available in a limited edition Black Version. It is understood that the car, that features a pretty unique layout with a shaft drivetrain but a transversally mounted motor – as seen on belt-driven cars – is unchanged from the standard “blue” version apart from the black aluminium parts for the bulkheads, turnbuckles and damper parts.

Capricorn Lab C03 hard chassis & new engine mount

Capricorn Lab C03 hard chassis & new engine mount

Capricorn have two new option parts for the Lab C03 200mm nitro car available in the form of a hard main chassis plate and a monoblock engine mount. Starting with the chassis, the part is designed to be an option for the standard flex chassis that comes with the car kit. The hard chassis is meant to give less flex which allows to fine-tune the car to different track conditions. Also new is the monoblock engine mount that stiffens the rear part of the chassis under the engine mount area. The single piece part is of a heatsink design to assist with heat dissipation from the engine’s crankcase.
