Coming from Hobby Pro USA is a range of brass option parts for PR Racing vehicles. Machined in the USA the range will expand over the time with the first products being a 16g front/rear brass arm mount as well as brass front L brackets, the latter adding 10g in total while allowing the front roll centre to be fine tuned with washers for quick and easy adjustments. All brass parts fit all PR Racing vehicles.
Hobby Pro USA have introduced their new 24K gold-plated stainless steel screws. Made from high-grade 12.9 steel for reduced wear and sporting a 24K gold-coating the 3mm fasteners are available as counter sunk or button head variant in six different dimensions and as 10-piece packs, covering most 1/10th scale applications.
MIP’s new Pucks bi-metal R-CVD driveshaft set are now available for the Hobby Pro PRS1 buggy. This new design features a keyed joint made out of hardened alloy steel that connects to 7075 hard anodised aluminium bones. This feature allows to lighten up the drivetrain without sacrificing the durability that steel components offer. The R-CVD design also helps to keep costs low while 7075 hard anodised aluminium outdrives further reduce the rotational mass of the drivetrain.
The latest buggy to receive the MIP Pucks drive system is Hobby-Pro USA’s PRS1 2WD buggy. The kit included new “shiny” driveshafts, new steel outdrives, a thrust race, diff spring and screw as well as a set of clear silicone grease and blue thread lock.
New from Hobby Pro USA come these tyre mounting bands. They are made from a durable and highly flexible silicone material, they measure 12x202mm and are usable for 1/10th and 1/8th off-road tyres alike. The bands also make a nice wristband plus they hold and secure screw and parts boxes.
New from Hobby Pro USA comes this CNC-machined and hard-anodised 32mm flywheel. It features polished steel flywheel pins that are extremely high pressure fitted and provide extremely smooth clutch action. The flywheel’s design and shape provides reduced surface area which prevents the clutch shoes from hanging up making for improved reliability.
Hobby Pro USA introduce a new 500cc fuel bottle. Made from a plastic material with the “right feel” the bottles are not too soft to having pitman overfill the tank nor are they too stiff to give a false sense of grip. They come printed with Hobby Pro USA logos and sport a long black anodised neck with plug.
