New from Titanium Racing, their latest spool features a new interlocking radial drive system which reduces loadings on the outdrives resulting in less deformation under load. Manufactured from an aero grade 7075 T6 Alloy body with replaceable high impact Delrin outdrives, with integrated sleeves, the radial drive system produces a more direct and equalised load around the circumference of the outdrive reducing potential stress areas on the spool, the bearings and ultimately the bulkheads. The new arrangement features increased diameter outdrive cups making them significantly stronger than previous designs and the outdrives are now secured in place with Titanium countersunk screws ensuring a lightweight solid and concentric unit with better balance for reduced losses at higher RPM’s. Available for the Schumacher Mi3 and Mi4, Tamiya 416, Top Photon, Yokomo MR4 BD5, Hot Bodies Cyclone and Associated TC5.
Team Hot Bodies UK are pleased to announce that they will be working with Titanium Racing in development of TR’s excellent range of products. Following on from the success of Team Schumacher, HB are positive that working with TR will allow them to improve not only the feel of the cars but decrease their lap times. With ex-World Champion Andy Moore spear heading the development great things are sure to come from this partnership. Mendip will be the first time the team will be testing the products in anger so we look forwards to the performance increase we are sure they will have.
New from Titanium Racing is their replacement light weight outdrives designed to fit the original Xray Composite spool. Precision manufactured for from high impact Acetal and containing a factory fitted alloy sleeve, these units are said to improve steering and be slightly stronger than the original items. The button head screws in the original items have been replaced with neater countersunk screws which also adds to its strength and impact resilience.
Titanium Racing have released their latest Pro competition spool and F1 stealth CVDs for the increasingly popular and successful TOP Photon. The Pro competition spool features aero-grade 7075 T6 Alloy body and sleeves and high impact Delrin drives. The system incorporates the unique locking system as featured on all TR Pro competition spools. The car is complimented by the new range of already successful F1 Stealth CVDs and the driveshaft length is optimised at 43.5mm (pin to pin measurement). Titanium Racing’s test driver Ricky Copsey using the new components at Sundays BRCA Junior National support race and broke the track record, TQ’ing and taking victory in both A finals against some very stiff opposition including Hot Bodies sponsored driver Ben Cosgrove.
You know a car is popular when aftermarket companies release optionals for it and it seems the Yokomo BD5 is getting popular with the second front spool release in 2 days. This new spool kit from Titanium Racing features a solid Aero-grade 7075 T6 hard anodized centre body with high impact delrin cups and 7075 T6 alloy sleeves. The unique locking system is designed and developed by Titanium Racing and does not use pins to attach the cups, reducing potential stress areas thereby improving the impact resistance of the spool cups. Maintenance is also simplified as the cups simply pull off and push on. Weighing in at only 9 grams excluding the pulley, car response is improved as is on and off power steering.
Following on from the success of the F1 stealth CVD for the Mi4, with a victory at the hands of Chris Grainger at the BRCA Cotswolds National, Titanium racing are releasing the new CVD for all the current range of RC cars, beginning with the Xray T2 range. Manufactured to the highest standards using the latest technologies the new CVD features a unique stainless steel Locking coupling, reduced stress points, oversized joint for increased smoothness and high tolerances for better fit, reducing play.
Titanium Racing have released these new F1 grade Ti6AL4V titanium double shoulder pivot balls to fit the modern range of Xray touring cars. A direct replacement for the stock items, they are precision manufactured, polished and colour anodized and are 50% lighter than the standard items.
Titanium Racing have released this new upgrade product for the Schumacher Mi4. This new layshaft has been shortened to reduce the possibility of rear end tweak and it eliminates the link between the left and right hand side of the bulkheads. This allows the two top carbon torsion plates to operate as they should, providing a great degree of controlled independent flex. Made from aluminium, this shortened lay shaft claims to provide for a more uniform and deeper flex, aiding rear end traction. Most notably transmission noise has also been reduced thus increasing transmission efficiency.
