RC-Project revised clutch shoes & springs

RC-Project have released their completely revised clutch shoe, ensuring longer life, less maintenance and greater reliability. The new shoes have 35% more contact surface area, which ensures longer life and less bell wear while the pin hole has been reamed to centesimal tolerance and all edges have been CNC chamfered and not tumbled like the previous version. The shoes was produced from a different material and then hard anodised and branded. The 0.5mm washer was eliminated and integrated into the shoes for greater reliability and to reduce friction between flywheel and shoes. The new spring design allows for quick and easy assembly and have been manufactured from a different material that is very heat resistant to prevent possible breakage or load changes during use. The shoes and springs will fit flywheels from Mugen, Sworkz, HB, Xray, Alpha, Agama, Carrara Z9 and Mayako and will work on all bells with diameters Ø26, Ø26.3, Ø26.4 and Ø26.5.

RC-Project The Ring muffler support

The new ‘The Ring’ muffler support from RC-Project is made in Ergal 7075 T6 in Italy and can be mounted on all 1/10 and 1/8 Nitro models and is available in 6 different colours. The muffler support will allow you to have 2 different configurations, fixed or mobile. In fixed mode, in addition to the central fixture of the muffler, 2 additional M3 setscrews can be added to secure the muffler fixing with the spring and avoid unpleasant problems due to the setscrew coming loose and the muffler coming away from the spring. In mobile mode it will be possible to eliminate the central fixture of the muffler and leave only the 2 setscrews. In this mode the muffler will have the freedom to be able to move inside the support, which will help the free movement of it according to the bending of the chassis. Inside the space between the muffler and the support you can insert O-rings or a silicone tube to dampen the movement. The spring made of harmonic steel, has a length that adapts to all models and it can be shortened and bent according to your needs.
