Coming from Reckward-Tuning is a new 6x13x5mm sealed ball bearing. A standard size for many 1/8th scale buggies and trucks the bearing is of a rubber-sealed design to keep dust, dirt and moisture away from the delicate internals that is made up using high-quality balls and a specially-shaped cage for long-lasting performance whatever the track conditions. The ball race comes pre-lubed using a special synthetic grease and it comes in packs of ten.
Coming from RMV Deutschland’s Reckward-Tuning brand is a 24-piece set of sealed high-quality ball bearings for the Mugen MBX8. The set utilises high-quality ABEC 3/5 spec bearings that feature a special rubber seal and a synthetic grease for exceptional protection against the elements and a low drag drivetrain. High-quality balls and optimised ball cages will greatly increase overall bearing life even in demanding track conditions. The 24-piece set is a direct fit and available now.
RMV Deutschland have introduced the new Reckward-Tuning carbon fibre mud guards for the Serpent SRX8 series of buggies. The parts are moulded from high-quality carbon fibre for a low weight yet greater durability compared to polycarbonate mud guards. The parts attach to the rear lower A-arms and help to keep dust, dirt, mud and moisture away from the rear arms, driveshafts and lower shock parts which results in less dirt and weight build-up over the run. The mud guards come in sets of two and they are a direct fit on the SRX8 and SRX8E.
RMV Deutschland have introduced new Reckward-Tuning option parts for the Mugen MBX8 and MBX7 buggies. First up is a moulded carbon fibre battery box with kevlar reinforcements. While being extremely light of weight the box is also highly durable for its weight and it scrubs valuable weight while looking the part. The box is slightly larger than the standard battery box, allowing the use of either larger batteries or more effective foam protection. The box comes with a separate lid and it is a direct fit.
RMV have introduced the new Reckward-Tuning high-performance silicone shock and differential fluids. Developed and tested by Matthias Reckward and Martin Overkamp, the fluids are of very high quality to ensure consistency and performance even in the most demanding racing conditions. The oils are available as 250 cps to 700 cps shock and 1,000 t0 30,000 cps differential variants in large 100ml bottles, making them interesting not only for 1/10th and 1/8th scale drivers but also large scale pilots whose car’s huge shocks and diffs require large amounts of fluid. Beside the already available range Reckward-Tuning will provide additional viscosities in the near future.
RMV Deutschland have introduced the Reckward-Tuning glow plug inspection tool. Designed by Merlin Depta and made in Germany the tool allows to inspect all Turbo-style glow plugs in order to rate their condition and also parameters such as carburettor settings and more. The tool is pretty simple to use; screw in the glow plug, switch on the lighting and the included loupe will show the glow plug coil in 50-times magnification. Included with the tool comes a handy pouch for easy storage and transportation.
New from the Reckwald brothers’ own Reckward Tuning brand comes this set of wheel axles for the RB One and RB E-One. Fitting both the front and rear of the buggy the CVD wheel shafts are machined from high-quality 7075 aluminium and offer a lower weight for reduced rotation mass and unsprung weight resulting in improved car performance on the track. The axles include grub screws for the wheel adapter cross pins and are usable on both the competition and RTR variants of the RB One and E-One.
