Thunder Tiger have introduced their all-new Bushmaster 8E 1/8th scale ready-to-run E-buggy. The vehicle is based on an aluminium main chassis, it features a 3-differential drivetrain, 2-piece sliding motor mount, threaded 16mm aluminium big bore shock absorbers and aluminium shock stays. The kit, that shares many design elements – such as the front and rear suspension – with the 2014 Team Associated RC8 prototype, is rounded out by a 10.5kg-cm high-torque metal gear steering servo, a 2000kv brushless motor and a 100A waterproof speed controller.
Thunder Tiger have finally released their RTR version of the EB4 S3 1/8th scale buggy. We first wrote about the car back in July when our partners RC Mag got some pictures of the car after it showed up at a National race in France. The car, which is available in blue or orange finish, sports a number of innovative features including patented CVD drive shafts that somehow allow changes to be made to the suspension settings, while as per previous TTR cars the front shocks are mounted behind the shock tower for protection in the event of a crash. The car sports aluminium in the place of carbon fibre as per the pro version, but is very well equipped and comes with a pull start .28 motor for power and durability.
Thunder Tiger have released this super fast digital Servo, the DS0606, that features a coreless motors and plastic gears. Suitable for controlling the steering on your car, this servo sports an aluminum housing that helps it withstand high loads, while the max force the servo can output is 5.3kg/cm and it can travel 60 ° in 0.058 seconds. Available in October.
Our partners RC Mag have the first pictures of the new RTR version of the Thunder Tiger EB4 S3 1/8th scale buggy, spotted at Maquette du Plaisir. Sporting a pullstart Thunder Tiger .28 motor, which has plenty of bottom end power and torque, while the only other differences between this and its successful Pro version is the lack of anti-roll bars, no carbon fiber used, no central CVDs, but other than that its still the same race winning chassis. The car is expected to be sold complete for EUR 428.
Thunder Tiger Europe have announced the release of their latest ready to run 4wd shafte driven electric touring car, the Prowler VX. Equally good on both carpet and tarmac, this makes a great entry level car and comes with 2 channel radio, 17 turn electric motor, aluminium motor mount, forward and reverse speedo and front and rear sealed differentials. The car also features a lot of identical parts throughout meaning that the amount of spares that you need to bring to the track is kept at a minimum.
At the recently run indoor off road race at the Stuttgart hobby fair, Team Thunder Tiger won both the Buggy and Truggy classes. In the Buggy class the young Andreas Ertl lead home a top 7 positions clean sweep for the manufacturer with Michael Guard in 2nd followed by Stefan Ippy in third.
In the Truggy class they didnt have it all their own way but still took the class win with Michael Guard winning with GS racer Hans Dieter Plepp bringing the fight to Guard followed by Rentel in third.
