First up is the PRO Racing ESC which features a complete aluminum casing which provides maximum surface area for heat dissipation and can handle up to 3.5T motors with a continuous current of 140A with a burst current up to 960A. Weighing 40grams it can work with sensored and sensorless motors. Also new from Hirosaka is their line of PRO Racing Brushless Motors.

Powers International of Japan have released yet another new type of cell, the 2nd this week, with the release of these H-Energy Select 4300MAh competition matched MiMh cells. Similar to the GP4600 cells, in that they have been worked by Masaaki Hirosaka, they provide the user with lots punch with good endurance and are JMRCA recognised. Sold in packs of 6 with battery bars, or in a pack of 24 without.
We have shown you the work done by Masaaki Hirosaka on the Kyosho Stallion before in which he has completely modified it to the point that it is hardly recognisable. Today on his site he has announced that his version of the car will be shown at this weeks Shizuoka Hobby show, and judging by the very neat and final looking car in the picture above we presume it is getting ready to be sold. Also mentioned on his site is the fact that he will be selling, to order, pre built versions of the standard Kyosho Stallion TF-5, so if you ever wanted your car built by a World Champions mechanic, now is your chance.
These Zap H-Energy cells have been mentioned on the internet for a while now and will finally be shipping on the 19th of March. Matched by master mechanic Masaaki Hirosaka, father of multiple World Champion Masami, these Ni-MH cells have been in testing for some time now by utilizing all his experience, Masaaki has been able to produce a cell that lasts longer than similar types and gives instantaneous power and will be made available in 4300 and 4500 mAh versions.
We’ve written briefly about Masaaki Hirosaka, father of multiple World Champion Masami and top RC mechanic, before and the fact that he makes some pretty cool well thought out products. Well here is his take on the Kyosho Stallion TF-5 which takes a different approach to that used by Josh Cyrul who’s car we saw at the Snowbirds. As you can see from the pictures, the batteries have been set further back than normal and where the top deck connects with the front bulk head is pretty unique too, although i cant tell you exactly why. Also note that the rear body mount is bolted directly to the bulkhead which means the downforce generated by the body shell is pushed straight down onto the chassis, its mounting position also protecting it from crashes.
Masaaki has also created patent pending one touch total length adjustment shock absorbers. I cant tell how they work either but i have included pictures of them below.
