Acorn Racing have released their new line of receiver packs. These Lithium based cells housed in metal cases were specifically designed for use in nitro-powered cars, buggies and trucks that require a stick / hump pack configuration. Small in size, light in weight, makes these the optimum receiver packs for today’s racing car design. These packs are made smaller than the new generation LiPo and LiFe receiver packs in the market, does not expand and has an operating voltage between 2.3V to 4.2V per cell. This pack can be used together with today’s LiPo-compatible high voltage servos and receivers for even more steering speed and torque.

The special formula also cleanses, rejuvenates, softens and restore old tyres to their natural form.
