Factory RC have announced the release of a plethora of new carbon fibre option parts for the Yokomo YZ-2T 2WD stadium truck kit. First up is a battery hold down set in traditional black weave as well as blue and gold weave carbon fibre materials. The set is made from 3mm and 5mm carbon fibre pieces utilising the stock hardware to greatly improve battery retention. Using the 5mm spacer block and an additional bolt the battery stops and battery tab no longer flex which can allow the battery to eject from the vehicle. The set will also fit the YZ-2 series of buggies if owners change the sideguards to the updated YOKZ2-002SPT parts.
Coming from Factory RC is a new battery retention system for the Team Associated 6 series of off-road kits, such as the B6.1, T6.1 and SC6.1. The system utilises 3mm black or blue weave carbon fibre along with a colour matched aluminium spacer and stock hardware for a secure and highly adjustable retaining system. The system allows for battery float to allow the chassis to work independently which can provide better grip, less chassis “snap”, and a better overall driving vehicle. The battery hold down system is available now in both traditional black weave carbon fibre, and our blue weave carbon fibre material.
Factory RC have introduced a host of new carbon fibre option parts for the Team Associated T6.1 and SC6.1, the Mugen MBX8R and the Tekno RC EB/ET410. Starting with the AE-related parts, the new range includes front and rear carbon fibre shock towers for the T6.1 and SC6.1 in standard black or special blue weave variants. The parts are usable on both the stadium and short course truck.
New from Factory RC is their latest slipper lock out kit for the Yokomo YZ-4 SF 4WD buggy. This kit was specifically designed for the ever popular 13.5 4WD buggy class and made from multiple pieces of carbon fibre plate meant to be used along with Avid or Schelle spur gears. Using this setup with factory hardware drops over 8g over the stock assembly and it also allows to take advantage of a smaller spur gear to bring the Factory RC recommend either a 75T or 78T spur gear.
Factory RC have introduced their new line of carbon fibre option parts for the Tekno RC EB410 1/10th 4WD buggy. Available are items such as a front shock tower, a standard and -2mm rear shock tower, front camber plate, steering top plate as well as a centre diff fan mount and a battery strap. All feature Factory RC’s “Leading Edge” machined chamfered edges for looks and greater robustness and the parts are available in standard black or optional blue or gold weave carbon fibre.
Factory RC have announced the release of new carbon fibre option parts for the Yokomo YZ-4 SF buggy in the form of front and rear shock towers as well as a LiPo battery strap. The shock towers are both cut from high-quality 4mm black carbon fibre and the front shock stay comes milled out to reduce weight and increase airflow onto the front of the body for additional down force while the rear variant is marked for easy identification. As for the battery strap, the part sports an opening to allow in-car charging while using the balance port of the battery so there is no longer need to remove the back or strap to charge in the car. The brace uses standard hardware and is compatible with both standard height or low profile shorty packs. All parts are equipped with Factory RC’s ”Leading Edge” chamfered edge for cool looks and greater durability.
Factory RC have introduced the carbon fibre gearbox shim set for the Yokomo YZ-2 series of 2WD buggies. It allows 1mm and 2mm adjustments to the gear box height to change the CG and dog bone plunge angle on the car. For carpet the team often runs the gear box shimmed up 2mm while using the Yokomo Z2-304C-2 and Z2-018-2 pieces. This shim set can also be used without these parts on dirt/clay tracks to increase rear grip on those services that need it. The set is compatible with every version of the YZ-2 including the 1st Gen, CA, DT, and DTM kit. Set includes both 1mm and 2mm shims for the gear box, rear “CA” style brace, and waterfall shims all made in carbon look plate. 1mm or 2mm ball stud washers are used on the rear DTM mount for adjusting height. The addition of the water fall shim prevents bind up in the transmission assembly allowing for additional flex and grip.
Factory RC have introduced new carbon fibre option parts for the Yokomo YZ-4 1/10th 4WD off-road buggy. First up are front and rear shock towers made from 4mm black carbon fibre. Both the front and rear tower are of a beefier design while the rear part also allows for adjustable wing height. Thanks to Factory RC’s Leading Edge treatment the parts sport chamfered edges that make sanding unnecessary. Also new is the shorty battery brace that was specifically designed for a precise fit while allowing plenty of adjustment when running the battery cross wise in the chassis. Moulded Delrin stop blocks hold the battery firmly in place and full forward and reward battery placement can be achieved as well as in between positions and other configuration. Due to the thinner 3mm carbon fibre material full chassis flex will be retained.
