H2 Racing Development 419MM V2 chassis kit

H2 Racing Development have released the V2 version of their 419MM kit, based on the TRF419. The mid-motor design, compared with the mid-pulley design, gives the chassis more stability and a better feel, which they claim makes it easier to handle in different traction conditions. Not only does the chassis and deck have a new and slimmer design, this V2 kit has also different lower bulkhead positions. This change gives the front and rear belt the same size and distance as the 420MM, meaning they use the same belt set. The suspension arm mounts have also had a small change, again to make it as similar as possible as the 420MM. Other updates are the new shock towers for the SSBB damper and the batteries are now also more centrally located for more equal front and rear weight distribution. This kit is suitable for the TRF419, 419X & 419XR.

In addition, and with 2g per piece, they are very lightweight.

H2 Racing Development Fantom EP 4WD optionals

H2 Racing Development have announced the soon release of a couple of new carbon fibre option parts for the Kyosho Fantom 4WD 1/12th scale on-road kit. The range includes a full upgrade set containing a 2mm chassis and bumper as well as a 1.5mm upper deck and servo saver spacer. The upper deck was redesigned to accept 24mm and 20mm fan mounting pattern electronic speed controllers, doing away with fitting issues that can occur with the kit’s top deck. Also coming is a set of 2mm carbon fibre upper and lower front suspension arms. All parts are cut from high-quality Japanese Torayca carbon fibre and they will become available in September.

H2 Racing Development Advance S64 carbon chassis

Coming in late August is H2 Racing Development’s new carbon fibre chassis and top deck for the 3Racing Advance S64 touring car. The main chassis will come machined from high-quality 2.5mm Torayca carbon fibre and it offers some additional features compared to the standard FRP chassis, such as a mounting position for an optional twist control block, as well as mounting holes for an ARS suspension, weight block as well as shorty battery holders. The servo mount position was moved a bit backwards for an optimised weight bias as was the lower bulkheads which means the chassis is only usable in combination with H2RD’s upper deck but not the original part.

Coming from H2 Racing Development and made for their TRF420MM mid motor conversion kit is a 2.0mm carbon fibre chassis. The chassis is thinner than H2RD‘s 2.5mm kit main plate with the 2.0mm plate increasing torsional flex for improved traction in low grip racing conditions. The chassis is made of Japanese Torayca T300 pure carbon fibre material for best possible quality and durability.

H2 Racing Development TRF419 FWD conversion

H2 Racing Development have introduced their all-new front-wheel drive conversion kit for the Tamiya TRF419 electric touring car series. The set suits the TRF419X and TRF419XR and also the older TRF419, however the latter needs H2RD’s special bearing kit to make use of it.

The shorty battery position is widely adaptable, from horizontal or vertical. The chassis set also offers several tweak control possibilities for track surfaces ranging from low-grip asphalt to high-grip carpet and a special design bumper plate allows to install different size weights for optimised front wheel traction control. The kit comes with low profile damper staya which fits the Tamiya big bore or SSBB shocks. Optionally available are standard height shock towers for the use on large high speed tracks. Included in the kit comes a 2.5mm main chassis, 2.0mm upper deck, as well as 3.0mm shock towers and a 3.0mm bumper plate, all machined from Japanese Torayca carbon fibre.
