Avid Ringer Aluminium Cap Head Screws

Avid Racing Concepts have released these Ringer Aluminium Cap Screws that are designed to offer the hardcore racer the ability to shave off even more weight than their titanium screws.  Machined from 7075-T6 aluminium they have a self-centring 1mm shoulder with a 3mm outside diameter at the head making them ideal for touring car top decks. At 40% lighter than titanium, they save a lot of weight however Avid do caution that if the screw needs to be cranked down, then don’t use these as aluminium screws are not strong.

Avid AE 2.0 & 2.5mm thick 13mm Pistons

Avid Racing Concepts has introduced new machined 13mm pistons for the new Team Associated’s 13mm shocks in two, 2.0mm and 2.5mm, thickness. They offer a conventional setup but with a perfectly machined round piston and square 90° edges for a tight-fitting piston that has little blow-by creating more pack on jumps. The AE piston has a slightly rounded outer edge and the holes are chamfered which results in harder landings. Over the years Avid have developed a process of keeping all the edges sharp with little to no burrs to keep your confidence high when landing big jumps. The 2.0mm thickness allows the piston to be smoother in bumps but at the cost of bottoming out on big jumps, for those use our 2.5mm thick pistons. Each piston a single dimple if you want to add a small 1.0mm bleeder hole to give the car more bite on slow corners (Blank pistons include 4 dimples.). Each package includes 2 pistons inside a Doodad container printed with AVID logo.

‘Black’ Avid Truss 1:8 Truck Wheel

Avid RC have announced that its popular Truss 1:8 Truck wheel is now available in black.  The wheel gets its ‘Truss’ name from the internal ribbing that uses the strength of triangles instead of having straight ribs.  The focus of the Truss starts at the centre of the wheel so the tighter triangles help keep the torque strength right where you want it when applying full throttle, at the nut.
