ST Racing Concepts have released a massive new range of option parts for the HPI Blitz Short Course truck. All parts are made from aluminium and all are available in Gun Metal, Orange, and Silver anodizing. First are these front caster blocks, steering knuckles and rear hub carriers. The rear hub carriers features a set-screw over hinge-pin design that securely keep the hub carriers on the hinge-pins, and also keep the wear to a minimum by making the hinge-pins rotate in the arms and not in the aluminum hub carriers while also increasing the durability. Next up is a new HD front shock tower, HD rear shock tower and rear camber link plate. The heavy duty front and rear shock tower will eliminate the flex, keeping your suspension operating true to its design, while the rear camber link plate improves durability in this normally weak area on the short course truck. Also new is a front suspension brace, front and rear chassis brace and HD front bulkhead. The CNC machined front aluminum suspension brace is a great improvement over the stock piece providing much needed strength to the front suspension when used in combination with the front bulkhead. The front and rear chassis brace help strengthen the front and rear end of the chassis.
The new CNC machined finned motor mount is milled for more cooling to the motor and also is machined with longer motor screw slots to allow for taller gearing ratios. The aluminium battery strap holds down the battery more securely over the flexible stock plastic piece and also adds a bit of weight at the center of the truck for slightly better stability, while the 3mm thick graphite battery plate is more light weight. Finally there is new CNC machined aluminium HD shock caps and front and rear racing threaded shock set. Fixing a common weak link on most short course trucks, the aluminium shock caps will greatly improve durability of your HPI Blitz upper shock mounting and when used in combination with the new front and rear racing shock set, it provides the ultimate smoothness and durability in suspension. The front and rear racing shock set features threaded aluminum shock bodies with O-ring installed pre-load collars in which the O-ring secures your pre-load adjustments in place.
