French buggy maker Piktor have released a new suspension upgrade kit for their Rush 2, to upgrade it to version 2.2. Designed for the high American jumps, the kit comes with a full set of extra big bore shocks, 2 new aluminum shock towers, which are also available in carbon fibre as seen in the photos, and finally 4 aluminium shock supports for the lower suspension arms. This is a simple upgrade which gives the car a more conventional shock mounting setup compared to the cars normal lay down configuration. The kit will only be available as an upgrade for the Rush 2.
French buggy manufacturer Piktor have announced that their are working on an electric version of their 1/8th scale buggy, the Rush 2. Following the current trend, Piktor will enable the use of a brushless motor along with twin LiPo cells, with a kit version as well as an RTR version available in the near future. From the looks of things in the picture, they seem to have done a neat job and it will be interesting to see the final version when it is released.
French manufacturer Piktor, makers of the Philippe Lachet designed Rush 2 1/8th scale buggy, have announced the release of their 2008 clothing line up. Consisting currently of 3 items, racers can choose for the white 100% cotton t-shirt featuring the Piktor logo in black combined with a red line design on the front side, while the rear has a Rush 2 design incorporating a picture of the car. When it gets a little colder you can go for the black fleece lined wind breaker jacket that also sports the Piktor logo on the front and a large Rush 2 logo on the back. For the finishing touch, and suitable for all weather conditions, there is the black and grey cap with the Rush 2 logo embroidered on the front.

This unique looking 1/8th scale buggy, which was a finalist at last years Euros, features low CG suspension configuration and lay down dampers which achieve high stability on bumpy tracks, precision on fast parts of tracks, fantastic grip on corners and perfect handling on the big jumps. The Rush 2 is easy to set-up because it can adapt to all types of tracks and all types of surfaces.

Introducing the original clutch system from the Piktor Rush 2 1/8th scale buggy. Continuing in Piktors aspirational way of telling us about their products they start by informing us how the best clutch to have is the one you forget, without worrying about it and the need for too much maintenance. It must also engage early enough to make the car easy to control, but also give maximum punch to propel you forward yet it must also slip a little bit to make it possible for the engines to breathe. The new clutch system in the Rush 2 does all this and more…apparently.
We have shown you lots of pictures and information about the Rush 2 from Piktor over the last couple of months but now we actually get the see the car in person for the first time. Everything prior to this has been studio shots or 3D graphics which all made the car look pretty slick so here above is the harsh reality. The car still looks innovative but not as shiny and polished but perhaps that is down to the fact that somebody forgot to put any effort into painting a display bodyshell, but we will reserve judgement beacuse the show only starts tomorrow and they hadnt yet finished their display.
You can view some more pics of this car here and here.
Piktor, the French company that has been teasing us with images of their all new and rather unique Rush 2 1/8th scale off road buggy, have finally shown us the complete body shell of the car. This computer generated graphic shows the body shells flowing curves, including the F1 type winglets in front of the rear wheels, as well as the unique front wing. I have to say it looks good, now if they would only release the car we’d all be happy.
OK, i know i shouldnt fall for this but i have covered all the other news from Piktor regarding their Rush 2 and so i shall continue by showing a tease shot of the bodyshell from this super hyped buggy. The bodyshell appears, from the picture, to be relatively standard with the only major difference being the front, which coincides with the fact the the front of this car is completely different from other buggies and the fact that it will come with a mounted front wing. We will know more when they show the full body.
Piktor also released more details with regards the differentials used which you can check out here.
