JConcepts RM2 tuning screwdriver & wing button

From JConcepts and Ryan Maifield’s RM2 collaboration is this engine tuning screwdriver. The aluminium handle is custom machined, red anodised and spiced with 2nd operation silver highlighting to bring some luster to the pit area. The top of the wrench is capped with injection moulded JC plug and the handle itself is topped off with laser etched JConcepts logo for authenticity. The tip of any wrench is mandatory for function and control. The spring steel flat blade screwdriver is made of multiple pieces and pre-assembled. The tip slides into a sleeve which is secured with beefy set screw located on the adapter itself. The tip is precision ground for shape, angle, and thickness for the all-important engagement into carburettor adjustment screws. The entire steel tip assembly slides into the handle and snaps into place courtesy of the magnet located in the handle. The magnet has enough holding power to maintain position during use and the occasional drop and pop during normal usage. When it is time to pack-up the pits or drop the footprint, simply pull the tip assembly out and place alongside the handle in the toolbox or bag.

Wing buttons on 1/8th vehicles go through endless torture during competition and this ‘Bridge’ wing button connects two of the ‘Clover’ style items into 1 steady unit. The all-aluminium construction and unique design is a direct bolt-on to buggies and truggies which have a centre-to-centre screw hole spread of 41mm. The red anodised part is machined out of billet aluminium and features the RM2 logo for authenticity. The mounting holes are countersunk for a flush attachment and help maintain correct alignment.
