Italian body producer Mon-Tech Racing has introduced a new 1:10 Formula 1 bodyshell, the F23. Inspired by the latest generation Formula 1, after various tests trying to optimize the air flow and creating the greatest aerodynamic load the new F23 can be mounted on all Formula 1 chassis.
Known for their highly detailed and very professional presentations of their newest kits, Xray has just released the latest details for their entire 2023 offerings of 1:10 Offroad chassis. A range that consists of 5 different chassis, you can check out the latest kit spec and details through the individual presentations for the XB2 1:10 buggy, the XB4 1:10 Buggy, the SCX Short Course Truck and the XT2 and XT4 Stadium trucks.
Creation Model has added two new silicone oils to its range which both specifically recommended for use in their World Championship winning IF15 1:10 Nitro Touring Car. Coming in a 60cc bottle, the 80000 is recommended for the IF15 rear differential allowing a setting between the existing #60000 and #100000 oils in the lineup. The 200000 comes in a 30cc tube and is recommended for IF15 front differentials at high temperatures! Provides stable turning and excellent on power traction. The oil thickness is also suitable for use with the adjustable front one-way option part.
Xray has introduced a ‘soft’ version of their CFF Carbon Fibre Fusion Upper Arms for the X4 touring car. Machined and molded from thinner premium-grade graphite and softer composite materials. The arms are super lightweight and very compact. Soft arms generate more mechanical grip on the car and improve side traction. Recommended for very low & low traction asphalt and carpet tracks. The softer arms are slightly more fragile. The unique CFF suspension soft arms are an elegant engineering achievement that look great and perform even better on the track. Using XRAY’s own developed manufacturing process, a carbon fiber arm and composite arm are molded together using a fusion process to produce a single CFF suspension arm.
Blitz has announced the next evolution to their all conquering 1:8 GT body, the GT6 Pista. The bodyshell features a high performance body shape with enhanced aerodynamics and outstanding aesthetics. Designed to fit all 1:8 GT short wheel base chassis (325mm), the GT6 Pista has been designed in close adherence to all IFMAR GT GBS specifications. It has an EFRA homologation number of EFRA-6008. The standard version of the GT6 is molded from 1.0mm high quality polycarbonate while the light version is made from 0.7mm. Both body types include a 1.0mm high performance wing and wing mounting hardware, along with head light decals and window masks.
Florida based GT specialist manufacturer IGT8 has released a new centre transmission support for their Nitro GT 1:8 GT Onroad kit. The new optional part is made from a single piece of carbon fibre and comes complete with aluminium fittings.
Following the release of their latest 1:10 Electric Touring Car chassis, the STX8 back in October, Italian company WRC Racing has present its new High Traction System (HTS). This 10 satellite gears diff configuration is designed and developed by WRC for the 1/10 scale touring cars and come as standard in the STX8 Kit. The strength of this differential is the high friction gears even with low viscosity oils, thanks to the 10 small satellite gears. The low oil viscosity lets the car have high rotation in the entry/central phase of the corner, then having high traction on exit as the high friction of the gears act as a higher viscosity oil.
MonacoRC has released the MonacoRC Rubber Bumper Flex X4 for Xray’s hugely popular 1:10 electric touring car. The Rubber Bumper Flex is a specially made bumper as defined by the name with a thermoplastic material that makes it highly resilient to frontal impacts of your model, but that is not all. Thanks to the study of the right measurement relating to the hexagonal texture of its design increases the steering of your X4 implemented by the slowdown of the air flow under the model. The design of the MonacoRC Rubber Bumper Flex has also been lowered to minimise its weight, but the contact surface with the rest of the bumper components has remained unchanged to allow greater safety in the event of an impact. The bumper weighs 13g and has a contact body surface size of 8.0 mm.
