T.O.P. Sabre FD2 spur gear adapter

T.O.P. Sabre FD2 spur gear adapter

New from T.O.P. comes an optional spur gear adapter for the FD2 2WD touring car. The car was originally designed for 13.5T and 17.5T boosted racing but with zero timing classes having taken over the racing scene the use of smaller spur gears is necessary. The new adapter is designed for 64dp gears as small as 76T and not larger than 86T. It comes machined from high quality aluminium and sports T.O.P. Racing’s distinctive red anodising.

T.O.P. Photon & Sabre Gamma shock springs

T.O.P. Photon & Sabre Gamma shock springs

New from T.O.P. come optional shock springs for the Photon, Sabre FD and Sabre FD Mini chassis. Testing showed that the current breed of spec tyres call for a softer spring setup in order to receiver a wider suspension tuning window. The new 274gf/mm, 260gf/mm and 248gf/mm springs rates allow for more play with the shock stiffness and can give the driver an advantage depending on the tyres used. The springs come in pairs and are marked for easy identification.

T.O.P. Photon hanging servo mount

New from T.O.P. is this alloy one-piece hanging servo mount for their Photon EX chassis. This new unit helps eliminate uneven chassis flex characteristics while at the same time limiting any servo position displacement and or rotation that may result from multi-piece hanging servo mounting systems.

µ-Pro bullet plugs & Super-12 AWG wire

µ-Pro bullet plugs & Super-12 AWG wire

With increasing power delivery from brushless motors and lithium polymer batteries, internal resistance of device-to-device interconnects and electrical contacts have become more critical parts for today’s R/C car racing. µ-Pro has targeted the market needs and come out with the male bullet plugs and the “Super-12” AWG wire.  The bullet plugs minimize contact resistance. They come in two sizes, with diameter ø4mm and ø5mm, these sizes working with the latest available lithium polymer batteries. The “Super-12” AWG wire claims to have a higher current density capability than ordinary 12 AWG wires available in the market.
