TLR 22 2.0 25 degree brass front pivot block

Team Losi Racing introduce this 25 degree front pivot block for the 22 2.0 buggy. Machined from heavy brass the block weighs 50g and it is ideal for those who wish to run a heavier front end on their vehicle. Coming in 25 degree castor configuration using the block will give slightly more corner entry steering compared to using a 30 degree block. It is understood that the front pivot block fits all 22 2.0 kits including the recently announced 22SCT 2.0.

Belgian SCT Cup Rd4 – Report

Belgian SCT Cup Rd4 – Report

The 4th round of the 2014 Belgian SCT Cup was organised by the new A.R.T. Sprimont club and held at the former RCEL track. The layout was unchanged from last year and the track is considered to be one of the best in the country, with elevation changes and high speed chicanes on a surface offering many different grip levels along the day. In the absence of current Pro2 ranking leader, Philippe Hautecoeur, France was represented by two newcomers, Laurent and Emilie Halluin (Team Associated). Laurent made an excellent start by setting TQ times in the first two qualification rounds while running in the slower heat. Nicolas Evens (TLR) won the third round to make it second on the grid, followed by Julian André (Team Associated). 1/10 4WD Belgian national champion Jean-Yves Konings completes the top 4.
