PSM have introduced two new optional parts for the Kyosho Inferno MP9e TKI and the CML Centro C4.2. First up for the MP9e is a 3mm thick lightweight carbon fibre centre differential brace which replaces the standard nitro brace included in the kit. For the C4.2 are new battery strap posts which are made from high quality 7075 aluminium and will replace the original Posts. A perfect fit with the original battery strap, they come supplied with the required fasteners.
Made for the Centro C4.2 converted Team Associated B4.2 buggies is this rear suspension kit from JConcepts. The set targets 3 key areas where the C4.2 could do with improvements. In stock trim the C4.2 includes a moulded rear bulkhead which is highly flexible and a target to damage in severe crashes. The JConcepts suspension kit includes an all CNC machined aluminium version which has been trimmed, narrowing the stance allowing more room for narrow rear pivot camber link adjustments. The bulkhead is available in blue or black colour and has silver chamfered edges around the border and inner cut-outs. The tucked design, trimmed shape and pocketing give the racer an extremely durable yet light-weight piece.
Team Associated introduce new option parts for the Centro C4.2 conversion kit in the form of a rear aluminium bulkhead and a 2.5° rear hinge pin brace. Starting with the bulkhead, the part is CNC-machined from aluminium, it sports the stock geometry but a less bulky design compared to the kit’s plastic part for a sleeker overall appearance. At the same time rigidity is increased thanks to the stronger material which is ideal when racing modified classes. The second new part is the 2.5° rear hinge pink block that again is machined from high-quality aluminium and it comes black anodised. The suspension mount features 0.5° less toe compared to the kit 3° block for added straight line speed and a more agile handling on high bite tracks. Included with the block come suitable delrin hinge pin inserts.
CML Distribution introduce this 2.5° rear suspension block for the Centro C4.2 conversion kit. The wishbone mount features 0.5° less toe-in compared to the stock part for more speed on the straight and improved rotation into turns on high bite tracks. The black anodised aluminium part comes including suitable inserts for the hinge pins.
JConcepts introduce the Finnisher body shell for the Centro C4.2 conversion. The body is of a tightened design, slimming the overall look of the buggy and it sports a smoother high-speed transition with increased airflow making it ideal for high-speed circuits. A centre roof channel improves stability and increases roof stiffness while double side windows create a new look and a small scoop improves motor cooling. The body comes including two 6.5″ Hi-Clearance wings, window masks and decal sheet.
Not in use at this week’s Buggy World Championship but on show is Centro’s forthcoming conversion kit for the Team Associated’s T4.2 racing truck. The kit is based on the successful B4.2 mid-motor kit and offers a black anodised aluminium chassis, carbon fibre chassis stiffeners and a rear shock tower from the same material. Taken over from the buggy conversion are the rear composite bulkhead and the moulded gearbox that was introduced with the C4.2 kit. Different from the buggy kit the truck conversion allows for multiple battery layouts from stock as the carbon battery braces take saddle and shorty packs as well as the new ‘square’ packs introduced by Reedy. There is no word on a release date yet but all parts beside the rear body mounts look pretty final meaning the kit should hit stores soon.
Avid introduce this standard aluminium topshaft for Team Associated B4.2, T4.2, SC10.2, SC10B and C4.2 vehicles. The drop-in replacement is made from 7075 aluminium, comes hard anodised and saves about 6.7g of weight compared to the kit part for more acceleration and increased punch due to a lower rotation mass.
Available now for pre-order on rc10.com is the updated Centro C4.2 Mid Motor Conversion kit for the B4.2 buggy. Developed in Europe and designed specifically for very high-traction surfaces, the Centro C4.2 Mid Motor conversion for the B4.2 features a hard aluminium one-piece chassis, and an all-new moulded gearbox and bulkhead assembly that positions the motor in front of the rear wheel centreline, creating a centralised weight balance. Additional tuning possibilities are available with Centro’s range of optional accessories, including front bulkhead brass weights, front brace, and carbon chassis side stiffeners.
