PSM Crono RS9 Carbon optionals

PSM Racing have introduced a number of new optional parts for the Italian made Crono RS9. First up are new front and rear shock towers, made of PSM´s special 4mm carbon fibre material for strong performance and lightness. They are manufactured with low tolerances to fit perfectly and designed to improve the weight and mounting positions of your shocks and linkage. Made from the same materials there are also new toe-in braces designed to improve the weight and toe-in on your rear end and will be available from 2° to 5° in one degree steps.

David Crompton rejoins Crono

David Crompton rejoins Crono

Our partners Neo Buggy have the news that 8 times British National Champion David Crompton has rejoined Italian buggy maker Radiosistemi to race their new Crono RS7GR. David left the Italian manufacturer at the end of last year to take on the challenge of the new Team Magic M1B, but then moved to Hobao from the middle of the season onwards after the M1B failed to deliver. David had this to say about his new deal –

I would really like to thank HoBao and CML for all their support this year, I’m happy to be back at Radiosistemi, and the RS7GR is the best handling car I have ever driven, everything is improved, quality, performance, speed!

Crono RS7 Buggy – Pictures

Crono RS7 Buggy

We showed you pictures of the Crono RS7 buggy back in February when the car was shown at the Nuernberg toy fair in Germany but little has been heard of it since. That is until last weekend when a pre production version, it seems, was shown at the French EFRA GP. The car sports new steering blocks, the center shafts use CVDs and while this example looks like a pro version, due to the machined chassis, the shock towers dont look as beefy as those shown previously.

The new Crono RS7 buggy

Crono RS7

Last week we confused a spy shot of this new car for the new Associated RC8, but quickly retracted that conclusion after we realised it was actually a new Crono and so here it is, the new RS7. A pretty conventional 1/8th scale buggy from the looks of things but it does use ball joint suspension up front and this particular car has CVDs on all 4 corners.

Check out the full image set here and here to make up your own conclusions.

New Crono buggy, not RC8

Team Associated RC8

Two days ago we showed this picture and asked if it was the new Associated and well what we know about the new RC8 pretty much ruled it out, like the fact that it uses C hubs and will come with a somewhat radical wing and body. So now there has been a lot of guessing concerning this picture, myself included, and it seems the front runner is that this is the new Crono and comparing it to a picture of the RS03 would seem to confirm that.

The new Crono RS03 Truggy

Crono RS03 Truggy

Buggy-Sport again have some exclusive pre production shots, this time of the new SVM Crono RS03 Truggy. We don’t know anymore about this car other than what we see in these pics but we can assume its just your usual truggy upgrade from the original and successful RS03 buggy.
