East 200mm Civic body shell

East 200mm Civic body shell

Created by the same designers as the immensely popular Central Lola 1/8th scale body shell, the EFRA approved East Civic 1/10th 200mm body shell was first shown in Japan last November and is now being sold through Serpent. This new shell sports 2 ribs on either side of the car to increase stiffness to this area while at the same time allowing the shell to be made from very lightweight materials. Other details include ribs on the bonnet that channel the air over the lowered windscreen and back to the rear wing. The Civic, which has been extensively tested by Central RC, provides the user with very responsive, high grip and well-balanced handling characteristics.

East Mugen & Kyosho middle bearing blocks

East Mugen & Kyosho middle bearing blocks

East, the Japanese modified parts maker, has begun selling these new middle bearing blocks for the Mugen MRX4-R, the Kyosho Evolva and the Kyosho V-One RRR, which because of their construction prevent twisting and therefore reduce damage to the front belt. Made using high grade aluminum, each part is anodised and comes in a range of different colours with all sets supplied with ceramic bearings that help increase the drivetrain efficiency. The V-One RRR set comes with an additional titanium center pulley shaft, which is very light yet extremely strong.
