CSO have introduced several aluminium transmission option parts for the Tamiya T3-01 Dancing Rider trike. First up is an alloy gear differential that is made of high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium. The planetary diff was developed to replace the standard plastic item and it comes including alloy outdrives, internal diff gears and all parts are hard-coated to extra durability. Also new are a hard-coated aluminium diff joint set including two joint adapters as well as an 30-14T idler and 39-12T spur gear. All are made of aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium.
Coming from T-Works and made for a range of electric touring cars are aluminium front spool cups. They are machined from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium, they feature a hard-coated surface for wear and they are usable with Xray, Spec-R, CSO and Team C kits. The cups are a direct replacement and need to be used with driveshaft blades.
CSO have introduced a set of hard-coated spring steel spool outdrive cups for the Yokomo BD7 touring car. The parts are machined from high-quality spring steel and finished with a special hard-coat that greatly improves wear characteristics. The parts are direct replacements for the kit’s front spool outdrives.
CSO have introduced a range of aluminium wheel nuts and hex hubs for 1/8th GT and off-road vehicles. The wheel nuts are of an open and lightweight design, resembling full-scale wheel nuts and they are available in a range of colours including red, orange, blue and gun metal. As for the wheel hex hubs the parts are available in different offsets of 4.5mm up to 8.5mm, in 1mm increments, and they allow to adjust the track width of the car to adapt it to different track conditions. Both the wheel nuts and the hex hubs fit most 1/8th scale vehicles and they come laser-etched for easy identification.
Coming from CSO are 4.5mm offset aluminium wheel adapters for 1/8th GT and off-road cars. The specific width of the adapters can greatly improve the cornering ability of GT cars, making for less understeering and thus faster corner speeds. The parts are machined from high-quality aluminium, they come laser-etched and in black, orange or blue colour.
CSO have new aluminium option parts for the Xray T4 line of touring cars available. The range includes 4 degree C-hubs, front steering blocks as well as rear uprights and all parts are CNC-machined from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium and they come black anodised and laser-etched. Silver chamfered edges give all parts a distinctive appearance. The alloy items are direct replacements for the standard composite parts and they offer improved durability while adding visual impact.
CSO have introduced two new main chassis plates for the Xray T4 touring car. First up is an alloy item for the T4’16, the chassis is cut from 2mm 7075-T6 material and it comes black anodised and with silver chamfered edges for cool looks. Also new is a carbon fibre chassis made from 2.25mm high-quality material. The chassis fits both the 2016 and 2015 variants of the T4.
T-Works have spring steel spool cups for a range of 1/10th touring cars available. They are made from the same hardened steel material as their tool tips and the parts are available for the Xray T2, T3 and T4 line, the CSO One, Spec-R R1 and S1 as well as the Team C TC10 and the VBC D06 and D07 cars.
