HRC Distribution have introduced the K-Factory ultra-lightweight aluminium servo mounting screws. Made from aircraft-grade 7075 alloy the fasteners are of a special design with a collar right under the head that fits snugly in most servo case mounting lugs, greatly reducing the change of the servo moving in the event of a crash. The screws do away with the need for additional washers and thus make for easy and convenient building and maintenance. The screws are usable with most 1/10th and 1/8th vehicles, they come in packs of six and are available now.
K Factory have released their new X turnbuckle wrenches. Made from CNC machined 7075 aluminium and coated for durability, each wrench is double ended for multi angle adjustment. Their thin shape allows for easy access into tight areas and they have been laser engrave with the wrench size for quick and easy identification. Available in 2.6mm, 3.5mm and 4.5mm versions.
New from K-Factory for the Team Magic G4RS 2009 comes 2 new front axle options. First up is this lightweight aluminium front one-way axle, that has been strategically lightened, reducing rotating mass as well as the overall weight of the car. Also new is this front solid axle, which like the one-way, has also been strategically lightened. Both axles come supplied with the relevant outdrives.
New from K-Factory for the Team Magic B8 chassis, is this aluminium centre chassis stiffener. Made from lightweight 7075 aluminium, the part has been machined hollow for extra weight less, yet retains its tensile strength. The part is mounted to the centre of the chassis plate around the centre differential and easily allows you to stiffen the overall chassis to suit different track conditions.
From K-Factory for the Team Magic B8, comes this new one-piece engine mount. Machined from a single block of high grade aluminium, its design ensures that both wings of the engine mount are perfectly aligned to reduce any possible pressure on the engine crankcase. In addition, both upper & lower sides of the mount are leveled by CNC machine to ensure full contact with the chassis and engine, while the block’s multi-fin design helps improve heat dissipation.
K-Factory have released a new steering crank set for the Team Magic E4. Whilst the standard nylon components are reliable and durable, they reckon that CNC machined 7075 lightweight hard coated aluminium is better. What matters is the accurate transfer of servo motion to the wheels and a light, rigid material will perform better than a malleable one where energy is being transferred. The mounting point of the steering arms to the steering bell use inserts with offset holes, allowing for quick and easy Ackermann adjustment.
K-Factory have released this pair of lightweight differentials for the Team Magic G4. The differential cover is now hard coated lightweight aluminium and have been precision machined and lightened to reduce rotational mass, improving acceleration and deceleration. The bevel gears within the differential have also been redesigned to precise specifications creating an ultra smooth and efficient meshing. Finally K Factory has reduced tolerances during engineering to provide precision specifications and a perfect fit into the bulkheads, this improves the power delivery to the drive system without the losses of efficiency incurred by a loose or sloppy fit.
New from K-Factory is this E4 aluminium battery mount for 5 cell packs, specially designed to be used in the Team Magic E4FS and E4RS electric touring cars. Similar to the mount released previously for 6 cells, it too claims to make your car much more reliable and stronger, due to the increased hardness of the lightweight aluminium which when mounted acts as a structural part of the chassis. Hard coated for excellent surface protection, the battery mount features a milled battery tape slot that goes along the length of the mount to hold your cells in place.
