RDRP Durango aluminium 1/10 big bore shock options

Revolution Design Racing Products introduce the Team Durango aluminium big bore shock cap and preload nut R2 set. The revised parts are of an updated design to allow for a more convenient ride height adjustment and to create improved looks. The aluminium preload nuts are now modelled after RDRP’s popular Kyosho RB6 parts to make for ever better grip when adjusting the spring preload while the updated lower shock caps cover the machined recession that is not used when leaving the shock boots off. This makes for an overall sleeker look and easier cleaning. All parts are made from high quality 7075-T6 aluminium, the preload nuts are gold anodised while the shock caps are black of colour. Included with the set also come suitable rubber O-rings for the preload nuts.

Exotek TLR 22 alloy motor plate & front camber block

Exotek have two new aluminium option parts available for TLR’s 22 line of vehicles. First up is the Flite motor plate, a fully CNC-machined part that is of a vented design to keep the motor running cooler and longer for that extra edge. Aggressive cut outs allows the heat that builds up inside the gear cover to vent out thus lowering overall motor temps greatly. The extra machining reduces the weight down to 14.5 grams, making it 6 grams lighter than stock, but the critical motor mounting areas are still intact to maintain solid motor mounting and gear mesh. The is intended for the use on indoor clay or carpet tracks, it comes laser etched, polished and anodised in gun metal or limited yellow colour.

Tekno locking spring perches & rubber shock boots

Tekno locking spring perches & rubber shock boots

Tekno RC have new option parts for their line of 1/8th and 1/10th vehicles available. First up is the locking shock rod ends and spring perch set. The all-new design mates up with the company’s new captured shock boots and it will ensure the suspension stays consistent throughout any race or run. The spring perches rest on a shelf around the rod end instead of directly on top of the rod end. The result is less interference from the shock boot and absolutely no sacrifice in up travel. Each spring perch and rod end is also secured by an M3x10mm set screw for added reliability. The rod ends and spring perches are compatible with Tekno’s 1/8th off-road buggies and trucks as well as their 1/10th 4WD SC truck.
