FTW Racing Components launched its line of carbon fibre racing components by introducing three upgrade kits for the Losi’s popular Ten-SCTE 4WD short course platform, a cooling fan kit, a shock tower kit and an Ackerman rack kit. FTW’s cooling fan kit includes a carbon fibre bracket which replaces the center diff brace and suspends a massive 40mm cooling fan over the motor can. The kit can lower motor temps by up to 40 degrees versus the same setup with no fan, producing side effects like increased power, longer run times and enhanced longevity. It includes a JST connector on the fan wire lead and all necessary hardware for installation.
Not mere carbon copies of aluminum stock pieces, FTW fabricates solid shock towers from high grade quasi-isotropic carbon fibre sheets without extraneous cutouts. To facilitate obsessive tuning precision, they are equipped with swing balance holes for dialing in optimal lateral weight distribution. Factory mounting holes and geometry are retained.
FTW’s Ackerman set provides both factory Ackerman rack options but in lighter carbon fibre. All FTW carbon fibre is fabricated in the USA from high grade USA carbon fibre.
