Avid Titanium M3X8 clutch screw

Avid’s new clutch screw is made from the highest quality 6AL-4V Titanium and is packed with a ton of cool features. The most obvious is the large flange to help keep out any fuel or debris from entering your clutch bearing. The second most obvious feature is that you can use a 5.5mm nut wrench or a 2.5mm Allen wrench to install and remove. Lastly, on the backside, they have added a small recess so the screw will never drag on your bearing seal/shield.

Avid titanium lower shock mounts

Avid’s titanium lower shock mounts for 10th scale vehicles make it easy for getting your shocks off and on while not wearing out the plastic from repeated uses. The one design feature we added to this common product is the 6 small holes in each mount. They are not there to lose weight but rather to help keep the mount from backing out as easily when taking the nut off the end, acting as a bit of a serration. Machined from billet 6Al-4V Titanium, they have a 1.5mm Allen head for installation. Each package includes (2) lower shock mount screws and (2) aluminium M3 flanged locknuts.

Avid digital mini scale & aluminium heat tape

The Avid digital mini scale is a commonly used tool now in everyone’s pit arsenal, typically for filling diffs. With this 500g max weight scale you can now also measure all sorts of things such as your batteries, motors, etc. with a 0.01g accuracy. Featuring a flip cover to keep your scale protected, the LCD display is back-light for easy reading and can show multiple weighing units such as g, gn, oz, ozt, ct, t, dwt. Also new is their reinforced aluminium heat tape, which is lightweight at just 0.15mm thick, 5 meters (16.4ft) long, and 50mm (2in) wide. The strength is found from the fiberglass that is woven through the material and all rolled onto a nice handy tube. This can also be used on your body in high-wear areas such as your mudguards or even on your tank next to the pipe to help keep your tank and fuel from heat saturation.
