Carson have released a race edition of their 1/8th scale gas powered buggy, the Specter. This latest version has improved performance and looks compared to the standard version and features a lot of additional tuning parts such as rear anti-roll bar, carbon fibre front stiffener, radio plate and middle differential stiffener, fuel reservoir splash guard, tuning drive shaft on front axle, aluminum front and rear shock-absorbers, all wishbone supports and chassis stiffener made of aluminum, and finally a three-jaw race clutch.

Carson have released this after-run oil, formulated to ensure your motor will stay in a top-condition and is protected from corrosion. Just insert a few drops into the carburettor and into the combustion chamber after driving and spin the motor. Sold in a 50ml bottle.
Carson have released a number of new products for assembling battery packs such as these soldering connectors, available in copper, gold and platinum. Sold in packs of 8, these soldering connectors are capable of carrying very high current and due to their design ensure that you have a 100% contact to your cell, which provides a very low contact resistance. Also new from Carson are 4mm gold contacts that are sold in packs of 2x sockets, 2x connectors and shrinking tube and have been designed for optimal conductivity, due to their low contact resistance and ability to stay free of oxidation.
More stuff from Carson who have announced the release of the HT Charger, a high-tech balance charger which features up-to-date built in software to aid the charging and discharging process. The HT-charger can charge all types of rechargeable batteries and due to its integrated balancer it can also safely charge LiPo batteries. Powered by 12V, the HT features a bright blue display which can be read in direct sunlight while an integrated cooling fan provides optimal heat dissipation.
Carson have released this starter box, which thanks to its design can achieve 3 different starter wheel orientations thus enabling it to be used with both gas circuit cars and buggies. The integrated 12V starter-motor provides effortless starting of 2.5 – 4.10 ccm glow engines, making the starting of 1:10 and 1:8 on-road as well as off-road vehicles much easier. Power is supplied from inside the metal box by either lead-batteries with 12 V / 7 Ah or two racing packs with 7.2 V (sold separately) or alternatively it can be powered externally by a car battery using the supplied power cable.
