MIP introduce new drivetrain option parts for a wide range of 1/10th off-road vehicles. First up is the Pucks 17.5 drive system, a blend of aluminium differential outdrives, aluminium C-CVD drive shafts and orange plastic pucks that take the place of the gnarly steel drive pins. The parts scrub around 50 percent of weight in the drivetrain increasing acceleration and deceleration while lowering motor temperature at the same time. The plastic pucks significantly reduce outdrive wear at the same time as there is no metal-to-metal contact lowering running costs over time too. The set is ideal for 17.5T stock racers and includes pucks, outdrives, a diff gear, bearings and hardware, bones and axles, lube and thread lock and it is available for the RB5/6, Ultima SC-R, TLR 22/T/SC, as well as B4, T4 and SC10 kits.
Also new are the C-CVD aluminium kits. Coming in seven variants for many popular Kyosho, TLR and Team Associated 1/10th off-road kits the driveshafts remove around 40 percent of the rotation mass from the drivetrain and help to improve the performance and handling of the chassis. Each kit is a direct replacement for the stock parts and includes C-CVD 7075 aluminium bones, steel axles, capture rings and hardware.
