Wisconsin based Lit R/C Products has released a simple 2-piece engine mount for TEKNO 2.x vehicles. Now you can do engine maintenance with ease while having total clutch-spur gear mesh repeatability within +/-0.001″ every time you remove and replace your engine. The mount also gives you the option to use the Tekno clutch or other manufacturers with a shorter bell length simply by using the second set of holes without the need to remove the engine mounting screws. The blocks are made of tough 7075 aluminium, anodised black, and include a full set of screws. Using a second set of top blocks, available separately, you can have your spare engine ready to mount on the fly. All parts made in the USA.
Lit R/C Products have introduced their new lightweight C and D suspension blocks for the TLR 8ight-X buggy. The suspension blocks are machined out of 7075-T6 aircraft grade aluminium and are anodised black for surface protection and looks. The blocks have been designed to use square pill inserts, this allows the user to achieve multiple pill orientations not possible on the current 8ight-X platforms. The square pills inserts are machined out of Delrin for direct fitment in the blocks and in addition to allowing for multiple pill orientations is the capability to raise or lower the rear end roll centre or to widen the hinge pins with the included square pill inserts. The set includes the C and D blocks as well as 20 inserts.
Available now from Lit R/C Products is their small screw tray in a new, black surface finish. The aluminum screw tray is a perfect addition to any pit or workbench, providing a place to put small parts and hardware while building, maintaining or setting up a vehicle. The tray is super thick and heavy to prevent it from moving around. They also now have a magnet installed to further prevent the loss of small screws. Machined silver edge details and a Lit logo makes the part stand out.

The pack of 20 square pill inserts includes four center, four .5 out, four 1 out, four .5 corner, and four 1 corner inserts that are also available separately in 10-piece sets.

The shock stay is machined out of matte 3k twill carbon in 5mm thickness and the geometry for the rear tower is the same as the stock kit tower, but has a thicker and stronger outer profile to be more durable. The lightweight tower also has small chamfered edges to help prevent delamination and in addition, Lit added more outer camber link positions with +10mm wing mounting positions to raise the stock wing mount.
Coming from Lit R/C Products are their new carbon fibre shock towers for the Tekno RC NB48 2.0 buggy. The towers are machined out of matte 3k twill carbon in 5mm thickness and they match the stock shock position geometry, however the front tower offers additional camber link positions and they are of a thicker and stronger outer profile to be more durable. The towers also have small chamfered edges to help prevent delamination. While adding a bit of visual impact the towers also are ten to 12 grams lighter than the stock towers for an overall lower centre of gravity.
Lit R/C Products have announced the release of their new +10 adjustable wing mounts for the TLR 8ight-X series of buggies.

The wing raiser comes machined from lightweight aluminium and features a black surface coating for wear and looks.
