Japanese brand Speedmaster Japan have introduced their new progressive T2.5-2.8 1/10th electric touring car spring as well as a range of accessories. Starting with the spring, the T2.5-2.8 adds to SMJ’s existing Stealth line of springs and it is made of 1.4mm diameter wire. The total length is 20mm meaning it can be used with most of today’s ultra short shock absorbers.
As for the accessories, SMJ have announced the release of a 20-piece pack of carburettor return rubber bands. A common sight in nitro racing the rubber bands are wrapped around the needle housing and carburettor ball joint and doing so will ensure the carburettor closes and brings the engine to its idle setting in the event of signal loss or battery failure. The set contains ten grey and black rubber bands each, ensuring a stealthy look compared to the more common red or orange bands available in grocery stores. Also new is an 8-piece set of foam-clad patches for 6mm body mount posts. The patched will both reinforce body shell mounting holes while also reducing vibrations. The foams are made using an 0.3mm patch and a 2mm foam strip.
