New from Spec-R and made for the company’s S and R-series electric touring cars are aluminium front steering blocks and rear hubs. The parts are machined from high-quality aluminium for increased durability compared to the standard composite parts, they come red anodised to match the remainder of the cars’ alloy parts and fit the S1, S2 and R2 kits.
New from Spec-R comes a heavy duty gear differential set of the Tamiya M-05 and M-06 kits. Using a lightweight yet sturdy plastic diff housing, nylon gears and longlife differential joints the diff requires less maintenance compared to the kit part while offering improved diff action at the same time. It also will be more consistent during a run even when using higher power motors. The diff comes without the needed fluid and it is only usable with 10x15x4mm bearings.
Spec-R have new option parts for the Yokomo BD7 and their own R2 electric touring car available. Starting with the Yokomo part, made for the BD7 2014 and 2015 Spec is a floating steering conversion kit. The set replaces the standard, chassis-mounted, steering assembly with a floating design to eliminate the influence of the chassis’ torsional flex on the steering behaviour. Included are a black anodised aluminium centre bracket that acts as the inner servo mount and also as a base for the upper steering plate that takes the steering bellcrank posts and the outer servo mount. With the the steering posts lifted from the chassis it can also flex more for an overall softer chassis feel.
Spec-R introduce carbon fibre battery locators for Yokomo’s BD7-2015 touring car. The L-shaped brackets are designed to enclose the battery pack for a more secure fitment even when the going gets tough. The parts are machined from high-quality carbon fibre to match the main chassis material of the BD7 and they are compatible with the kit’s alloy fibre tape links.
New from Spec-R comes a motor mount conversion kit for Xray’s T4’15 touring car. Included is a redesigned motor and layshaft mount made from orange anodised 7075 aluminium that utilises a single mounting bracket for the layshaft for improved flex characteristics. The rear part of the motor mount offers two different ARS toe link positions, doing away with the standard towers, and included are also hard-coated 7075 aluminium centre belt pulleys, a spur gear and a front topdeck mount.
New from Spec-R come body height adjusters in various colours. Made from aluminium the parts are of a common design and they help to precisely set the body height and rake of 1/10th scale on-road bodyshells. Included in the set are four threaded bushings, four height adjuster thumb nuts, steel pins and eight rubber O-rings. Made from CNC-machined high-quality alloy the height adjusters are available in blue, black, orange and red anodising and they fit all vehicles with the same body post diameter as Spec-R’s line of touring cars.
Made for the Tamiya TRF418 and TRF419 are the P8 double joint driveshafts from Spec-R. They are of a reinforced design with a large diameter cross joint, 1.8mm cross pins and strong 0.8mm circlips for the cross pins. Made from high quality spring steel and offering precision-ground wheel axles the shafts are recommended for the use in combination with a front spool axle and they minimise wheel chatter at high steering angles due to their design.
Spec-R have two new carbon fibre option parts for the R1 touring car available. First up is a 2.25mm main chassis that offers a less waisted shape than the Pro Spec item for improved flex characteristics. Also new is a 2.0mm upper deck for the R1. The part helps to adjust chassis flex to you liking by mixing and matching it with the different chassis types.
