Rony Mini-Z Lola & Pit Man

Rony Mini-Z Lola & Pit Man

Japanese company Rony have released 2 new items of interest recently, the first of which is the introduction of this 1/24th scale Lola body shell. Suitable for use on Mini Z chassis, this high downforce body has been made from lexan and is clear when you buy it so you can customise it with your own paint scheme. Also new from Rony is this great pit lane tool carrier called the Pit Man, which is made from aluminium and carries your fuel bottle, fuel gun and other tools and can be folded up flat when not in use.

Japanese company Rony, who have released a number of NT1 parts previously, have now released even more new additions to their range starting off with this aluminium front anti-roll bar lever set. Also new is a lightweight titanium middle shaft, a machined 18T aluminium pulley, aluminium servo saver set with adjustble ackermann, lightweight upper engine mounts and finally an aluminium chassis stiffener.

Rony parts for Spada and NT1

Rony parts for Spada and NT1

Japanese company Rony have announced the release of some new carbon parts for both the Kyosho Spada and the Xray NT1. The Spada gets a new chassis plate which Rony have made from carbon fibre, replacing the standard aluminium version and therefore saving weight without sacrficing strength, although not sure how heat dissipation will be handled. New for the NT1 is a rather beefy looking 4mm thick carbon fibre rear shock tower, the latest in a long line of companies to try their hand at this part.

Rony T-530

Japanese company Rony have released a number of new parts today, first of which is the new thicker version of the T-530 1/8th scale CanAm body that we showed you previously. Meeting customer demands, this new version is made from 1.0mm thick polycarbonate, as opposed to the original 0.8mm thick that the original version was made from, thus making it more stable and stronger. Also released by Rony is a number of carbon fiber optional parts for the Serpent 720 such as a new radio plate, front and rear shock towers, top rear anti roll bar plate, brake plate and rear camber link plate. All new parts are super light and where applicable they sport more tuning holes and machining too.
