Radtec introduce a 7075 aluminium main chassis plate for the Yokomo BD7-2015 touring car. Made from 2.0mm high-grade aluminium and using the kit’s original chassis shape the chassis offers a higher rigidity than the standard carbon fibre part and precision machining to reduce the overall weight. The left and right outer edges sport 15 degree chamfered edges to reduce chassis scrubbing in high speed corners and the black anodised chassis is a direct replacement for the kit part.
Radtec have several new aluminium option parts for the Xray T4, the Yokomo BD7 and 1/12th scale pan cars available. First up is a single piece floating servo mount for the 2015 Spec Xray T4. The CNC-machined part is made from 7075-T6 aluminium, it sports a mounting hole for the inner battery stopper and it comes orange anodised to match with the remainder of the car’s alloy parts.
From Radtec for the Yokomo BD7 comes a set of low-profile pivot balls that sport a reduced height to allow for more traction in corners when used as camber link ball studs. 1mm lower in height than the original Yokomo ZC-206SH parts the 4.3x10mm balls come made for hex head wrenches and they sport a hard-coated surface for super-smooth suspension operation.
Radtec RC now have a 1-piece servo mount for the Yokomo BD7 2014 and 2015 available. Made from machined 7075-T6 aluminium and coming black anodised and with machined silver edges the mount attaches to the chassis using three screws for a solid fastening even when the going gets tough. Incorporated into the design is an antenna mount and a battery stopper screw.
Radtec RC have new hard-coated aluminium turnbuckles available. Coming as complete kits for the Tamiya TRF/VBC D07, Yokomo BD7 and Xray T4 a set of six turnbuckles weighs in at only 5g and they are also available as pairs in lengths of 16mm, 26mm, 30mm 39mm and 42mm.
Radtec have new aluminium suspension block for the Yokomo BD7 2014 and 2015 kit available. They come machined from 7075-T6 aluminium and sport a black anodised finish with machined silver edges. The suspension mounts are available as 45.7mm variant for 2.5 degree toe-in and as 46.0mm block to create 2.8 degree toe-in when combined with the stock 42mm split centre mount.
New from Radtec comes a 2-piece motor cooling fan mount. Machined from high-grade 7075-T6 aluminium the holder is usable with 30mm and 40mm fans and it mounts directly to the motor can for improved cooling efficiency without interfering with the chassis’ flex. The mount features a channel to route the fan’s connection wire in and it is available in several colours including black, orange, light blue and red.
Radtec RC introduce a carbon fibre bumper support for the Xray T4 as well as several aluminium spacer sets of different colours. Starting with the bumper support, the part is made for the use with Xray’s T4 line of touring cars, it is cut from 2mm carbon sheet and designed to improve the rigidity of the bumper section while adding some visual impact at the same time. Also new are several aluminium spacer sets in dimensions of 3×5.5mm and heights of 0.5mm, 1mm, 1.5mm and 2mm. They are best used to adjust suspension settings such as wheelbase, bumpsteer or camberlink height and they come in three different colours of orange, black and titanium in packs of 10 shims.
