Litemodz have announced the forthcoming release of their first 1/10th scale Touring car the LM4-12. The newly innovated chassis features ‘TRS Technology’ which is combined with a directional biased carbon fibre main chassis and an ultra long top deck for more consistent and controlled flex pathways enhancing traction levels at all speeds. The newly designed steering rack system provides linear steering and accurate ackermann across the whole of the steering arc. Belt tension is achieved not only with cams but also layshaft adjustment allowing for front and rear drive pick up balance. Other features include full chassis mounted split block suspension pick up points and fully adjustable camber cradles allowing for maximum adjustment of camber link length and height for real tune ability.
Litemodz have produced two super spools for the Team Associated TC6 and Hotbodies TCX. Incorporating a 7075 T6 alloy centre and uniquely designed heavy duty replaceable Delrin cups with integrated sleeves, this system eliminates all unwanted backlash offering great performance. The added bonus for the TC6 is that the blades are no longer necessary.
Litemodz have released their latest product for TC racing, tapered teflon shock pistons. Designed to allow racers to have faster or slower rebound depending on which way up the piston is placed, they have already been used extensively in off road applications and will now allow for finer tuning in Touring/sedan car racing. They come with 3 hole 1.15mm holes and a 9.86mm diameter and will fit Tamiya, Hot Bodies and Schumacher Touring car dampers.
Following from successful testing Litemodz are proud to release the new CVS Constant Velocity driveshaft designed for the high level racing. The new shaft provides constant velocity, equalizing input and output shaft speeds that reduces wheel vibration to a minimum providing a much smoother transmission increasing steering and overall grip levels on the car by reducing unwanted tyre scrub. Using the CVS in both the front and rear of the car provides a more stable and precise car that is easier to drive with the added benefit of improving transmission wind up and tyre wear. The new CVS which is due to go on sale at the beginning of August will be available for Touring cars initially, then extended to 1/10th Buggies by the end of the month then 1/8th scale a month later.
Litemodz were in touch to tell us that testing has begun on their latest ‘revolutionary product’, the all new constant velocity driveshaft. The benefits of this system is that it eliminates torque and speed fluctuations of the joint which currently manifests itself in wheel chatter. Theoretically by maintaining shaft speed at any given articulated angle this should potentially result in improved steering and wheel response. This CVD may be fitted to all existing model cars without modification. A release date has not been given but it is hoped to be soon.
New from Litemodz are these NT1 ProX CVA’s offering exceptional performance for the Xray NT1. The all new 7075 T6 Hard anodized driveshaft and axle CVA offers ultra smooth performance and is coupled with a ultra low weight of only 11 grams per pair.
New from Litemodz is their Pro and Pro X CVAs available for the Schumacher Mi4LP, Team Associated TC5, Tamiya 416X, Xray T3, Corally PHI, Yokomo BD5 and T.O.P Photon. The Pro Edition CVA’s feature hard anodized black driveshafts and lightened high tensile steel axles. Developed as an upgrade offering super high strength, the high tensile steel axle has been centre bored to reduce overall weight and so a complete set of driveshafts weighs in at 14 grams a pair. The Pro X Edition CVAs feature hard anodized black driveshafts and axles and are a super light upgrade offering maximum performance through the reduction in weight. A complete set of driveshafts weighs in at only 10 grams a pair.
