Hong Nor have released a simple new product, these ultra safe 4mm locking wheel nut, which can be used in all 1/10 scale cars. Normally drivers use a 4mm flange nut to secure the wheels and the nuts sometimes come off or get very loose on track which also cause many problems for drivers.

HongNor X2 1/8th scale buggy

The follow up to the X1, HongNor have released the X2, developed using feedback given to them by their team drivers, in particular from those in the US. Jay Halsey from Jammin, had spent a lot of time testing and came up with this world class buggy for the 2008 World Championships. The intention was to have a very fast low weight car without sacrificing the durability of the model. The car is stronger than most models on the market and while the steering geometry has not been changed, the weight distribution has. The chassis is narrower with the engine moved forward and more to the center, they have gone away from the center universals and added light-weight aircraft grade alloy center drive shafts. The Center differential mount is the same design as the optional aluminium mount but is now made from a lighter nylon to save weight. The Front and rear towers are a 4mm carbon fibre further reducing weight and the company’s new BT-118 tires and ultra light wheels are included and are proving to be a popular wheel and tire choice. Also included is their optional long life silver clutch shoes and 16mm big bore shock absorbers along with the suggested springs to suit. Finally a new body has been designed for this model with a separate nose cone.
