Teamsaxo have introduced a set of carbon fibre front suspension spacers for their line of GT pan cars kits. Including 0.5mm, 1.0mm and 2.0mm thick shims, the set helps to adjust the front ground clearance by raising the front suspension in relation to the chassis plate. The slotted design allows to easily slide the washers between the suspension bracket and chassis without completely undoing the whole assembly.
Fenix Racing have introduced their new formula car ball differential as well as other optional for pan and formula cars. Starting with the ball diff, the assembly uses a 1/4″ Grade 5 titanium axle shaft, triple ball bearings and its design takes axial load away from the bearings for improved durability and higher crash resistance as there is no contact between the ball bearings and the thrust race. The 16-ball diff also features triple disc springs, it utilises a 64 pitch 84T CNC-machined main gear and it weighs in at only 38g.
Asian company Teamsaxo have announced the release of their latest Formula class bodyshell. Made from clear polycarbonate and fitting most of today’s formula pan cars, the body’s design is aimed towards the use on medium to high-bite tracks and according to Teamsaxo it is tuneable in terms of downforce and aerodynamic drag to fine-tune the car’s behaviour.
Teamsaxo have released first renderings of their forthcoming F1-180V2 1/10th formula car. The kit will offer multiple battery mounting positions including transversal and inline mounted packs, it features a centrally mounted laydown steering servo mount, a single bellcrank steering and front arms made up of carbon fibre sheet material with inserts allowing for easy caster adjustments. More information and images will become available in time for the release.
Teamsaxo have introduced their new GT300W-V2 1/12th scale pan car kit. Developed using the input of drivers and distributors the V2 kit will include hard compound plastics and a lowered front suspension seat for improved handling and precision, it comes with harder metal parts and also a redesigned power pod for easier motor installation and removal as well as a new rear axle mount that now uses shims to adjust the ride height, doing away with the previously used insert system. The kit will hit the stores very soon.
Designed for their range of pan cars and also many other brands are the Teamsaxo soft side springs. Made from high-quality steel and coming with colour-coded dots for easy identification the spring are softer than the company’s previous side springs, allowing for a wider setup range both on carpet and asphalt tracks. They come as pairs and in three different hardnesses.
Teamsaxo have introduced their new carbon fibre wing washers. Made especially for on-road wings the teardrop-shaped carbon pieces make for a sturdy and durable wing fitment, resulting in improved aerodynamic efficiency and a more secure wing mounting even at high speeds. Included in the package are two lightweight wing washers.
Coming from Teamsaxo and made for Xray’s T4’16 electric touring car are a soft carbon fibre main chassis and upper deck. Starting with the chassis, it is cut from high-quality carbon fibre and it sports a total of four cut-outs, front and back of the battery and electronics compartment, to make for more torsional flex than a plain chassis plate. The added flexibility will add traction and drivability in very low grip conditions or when running hard spec tyres.
