Turkish large scale specialists MCD Racing have introduced a range of option parts for the RR5 1/5th scale 4WD gas off-road buggy. First up is a wheelbase extender kit that enlarges the wheelbase to 610mm. The LWB setup will help with stability in fast corners and on very bumpy tracks and the set includes the lower aluminium extender bracket, a 181mm LWB rear centre driveshaft, a rear chassis stiffener, bodyshell extender and rear wing mounts. The set targets experienced modellers as it requires to modify the existing aluminium chassis in quite a heavy way.
Also new are wide front and rear multi-hole 7075 aluminium shock towers that allow for a wider range of setup possibilities thanks to an increased number of shock mounting positions while a new rear alloy chassis stiffener for standard wheelbase chassis improves handling on high-bite tracks. Last but not least come new upper aluminium shock caps and lower M5 joints. Both offer an updated design for improved durability and reliability and they include the necessary mounting hardware.
