Coming from Schumacher and made for their Cougar Laydown, KD, KR and SV2 kits is an aluminium diff conversion. The alloy case gives super precision and strength and has a larger oil volume for more consistency during a run while also helping with temperate management. The main large shim also thicker for more reliability. The conversion includes all parts necessary and the externals are also available separately so drivers can use donor parts from their current diff.
Ruddog Distribution have introduced their new Tire Glue line of CA super glues. Available as thin and medium viscosity variants the glues are ideal to securely bond on-road and off-road rubber tyres to their wheels with the thin variant being ideal to let the glue flow into even the smallest of gaps while the medium variant is also usable to seal tyre sidewalls in order to counter traction rolling. Both glues come in 20g bottles and they include angled glue tips to make application even more convenient.
7075.it have introduced new LCG aluminium chassis for the Awesomatix A800MMX mid motor touring car. Available as standard, read: more flexible variant and also in full-face High Traction specification, both chassis will improve the car’s handling in medium to high-bite traction conditions with the heavier machined chassis being ideal for medium grip tracks due to increased torsional flex while the solid surface High Traction variant is best used in high to ultra high traction conditions. Both come with a hard-anodised surface coating and they are available separately or including a 2-piece set of snuggly fitting screw-on front brass weights.
ARC have introduced their new 2mm aluminium main chassis plate for the R11F front-wheel drive touring car. Machined from high-quality alloy and coming black anodised for wear and looks, the chassis is also strategically milled to ensure optimised flex characteristics when running on indoor carpet tracks.
Coming from PR Racing and made for the S1 series of off-road vehicles are several updated or new parts. First up is the 2020 S1 front chassis top plate. The bulkhead was optimised and now incorporates a front swaybar mount that allows for easy attachment of the optional 2020 S1 front swaybar set. The front chassis top plate kit is also usable with the V3T and SC201 trucks and the optional anti-roll bar kit includes all needed hardware as well as 1.3mm and 1.4mm wires. While being at optional front swaybar kits, PR Racing also releases a truck compatible kit, again using 1.3mm and 1.4mm wires and including all needed mounting hardware. Last but not least come two new wishbone sets, a front gullwing lower arm set for the PRS1V3 Type R and a ST1 and SC201 compatible full arm set. Both include updated arms that feature anti-roll bar mounting positions.
Coming from T-Works are their new nut drivers for 5.5mm and 7mm hardware. The range includes long and short tip socket drivers as well as a dual 5.5mm and 7mm driver, doing away with the need to carry both sizes separately. The alloy handle tools are marked for easy identification, utilise high-quality tool tips and they are of the same design as T-Works’ recently introduced hex wrenches.
Exotek have introduced their new Stuttgart 225mm wheelbase M-class body shell for modern MTC 4WD touring cars. The Super Car body features wide body fenders, an aggressive front splitter, low side skirts, lowered stance and the unmistakable Japanese tuning style double wings, producing incredible handling in a lightweight, low LCG package while doing it in style. The body is of 225mm wheelbase, 176mm width specification and moulded from premium, heavy duty yet lightweight polycarbonate. It includes M3 hardware, a double wing set, vinyl masks, high gloss stickers and an instruction sheet. Due to its low hood it fits over modern mini chassis with no problem but may be too low for older Tamiya front motor minis.
Trinity have announced the release of their new SlimStick White Carbon LiPo battery range. The new super narrow batteries comes in handy especially when running mid motor touring cars where the reduced width makes for better left/right chassis balance while offering an overall lower weight. Like the LCG the SlimStick is another perfect option for weight placement, and can improve the handling of touring cars especially with corner speed. Two different specifications are available a 6000mAh 7.4V (139x38x25mm/240g) variant and a 5500mAh pack (139x38x25mm/237g). Both are built using high-quality 100C cells and they utilise 5mm bullet-style connectors.
