HongNor X1CR Shock Towers

HongNor X1CR Shock Towers

HongNor have released some new upgraded shock towers for the X1CR Buggy which are CNC machined from 5mm aircraft grade 7075 T6 aluminium. Both new towers have been hard-coated with special material for wear and durability and the front tower now has multiple half holes at the top and 3 mounting holes at the bottom. The rear towers have half holes at the top and an extra row on the bottom inside which gives more setup options for different track conditions.

Hong Nor Mini CRT-5 truggy

Hong Nor CRT-5

Previously we showed you some pictures of the Jammin Mini CRT-5 truggy, well here is its close relative (basically the same car), the Hong Nor CRT-5. The car is shaft driven 4wd and it seems nicely spec’d with metal shock towers, carbon fiber radio plate and c-hub suspension up front. The mini class is shaping up to be pretty cool with a lot of manufacturers already involved and these cars don’t hang about either on the track, with the ones i have seen so far, tearing up the dirt.

Hong Nor / Jammin pivot ball system

Hong Nor / Jammin pivot ball system

Apparently it is a big deal that Hong Nor / Jammin are releasing this optional pivot ball suspension system, seen above, for their X1 CR buggy? Personally i drove gas circuit cars for 17 years, so for me pivot ball suspension is one of the more accepted suspension systems available, but it seems that this is not the case in off road. Our partner sites Buggy-Sport and Neo-Buggy are trembling with excitment with the news of this revelation so please satisfy them by checking out the pictures on their sites here and here.
