Elite RC Ten-X conversion kit

Elite RC has released an electric conversion kit for the Losi Ten-T / 810. The Elite Ten-X conversion kit will allow you to convert your Ten-T to a Short course truck or a true 1/8 buggy. What’s unique about this conversion is that the overall wheelbase has been lengthened by 1″ giving you the proper wheelbase for SCT / buggy racing. Included with the kit is Elite’s slide & lock motor mount with incorporated bearing for motor shaft support, also a new feature is a aluminium battery tray, which will act as a heatsink and makes the chassis more rigid.

Elite RC Electric motor mount

Elite RC Electric motor mount

Elite RC have announced the release of their new unique electric motor mount for brushless conversions of gas cars, this one for the MP9. The slide and lock design means there are no gaps and so the motor block has full contact with the mount and so it will not bulge, giving a perfect mesh every time. Machined from solid aircraft grade 7075 T7 aluminium it is very rigid and can handle all the torque from the motor, but despite its strength it weighs in at little over 2oz. Another unique design feature is the 5x10mm bearing built into the motor block for extra shaft support and less flex, which reduces stress on the front motor bearing. Finally its 1 screw lock design clamps the sliding contacts together merging the two parts together to form 1 sold mount. Elite RC have also mentioned that they will soon release a fully adjustable battery tray as well as their own electric chassis.
