New from Vigor RC comes this aluminium multi-functional bulkhead alignment block. Suitable for the A800-MMX, X4, MTC2, IF14-II and many current touring cars and FWD cars. The block can be placed between the front and rear bulkheads with widths of 23mm or 17mm to align them during assembly. The two ends also sport a 4mm and 5mm ball end tool making it easy to hold the ball end while installing the turnbuckle.
Coming from Vigor are three new tungsten balance weights for some of the most popular electric touring cars. The range includes a 15g 3×19.5mm weight for the Yokomo BD10, a 13g 34.5x17mm weight for the Xray T4 series as well as a 10g 33.5×15.5mm weight for the Awesomatix A800MMX. All are machined of heavy tungsten material, meaning they are heavier than comparable brass weights, ensuring a more efficient chassis balancing. The weights are attached using super-thin double-sided tape. Also new is a universal 15g 5x6x26mm centre weight that can be attached in the motor mount area.
Vigor have introduced their new multi-use rear carbon fibre shock tower for the Xray T4F’21. The design with two additional rear body mount locations allows to move the horizontal rear body mount position up and down to fine-tune body rake and ground clearance while also accepting vertical body mounts for those who favour this “old school” kind of attaching the body. The rear shock tower is machined from high-quality carbon fibre and it is understood to match the kit suspension geometry.
Vigor have introduced their new carbon fibre tweak rod designed for mid motor touring cars. Made of a sturdy carbon fibre rod, the tool helps to remove tweak from chassis and bulkhead assemblies by loosening the bulkhead and top deck screws, pressing down the tweak rod onto the front and rear shock tower, and tightening the bulkhead clamp and top deck screws. The result is a chassis with minimal tweak which results in a more predictable on-track performance. A machined slot in the rod makes way for the spur gear of mid motor touring cars, allowing to use the rod even with today’s ultra low profile shock towers.
Vigor have announced the release of new carbon fibre option parts for the Xray T4 series of touring cars. First up is a bumper upper holder brace specific to the 2020 variant of the ultra-popular platform. The part braces the bumper against the front bulkhead in the event of a crash, prolonging the life of carbon and aluminium chassis. The mount is as direct fit and it includes mounting hardware. Also available are battery hooks developed for the use with the latest generation of slim or narrow-type LiPo batteries. The hooks allow for a secure fitting of the battery, they are machined from high-quality carbon fibre and fit all T4 series touring cars.
Coming from Vigor are new option parts for the popular Awesomatix A800MMX touring car in the form of a multifunctional rear body mount and a carbon fibre front bumper plate. Starting with the rear body mount, the set consists of a machined carbon fibre plate that allows a traditional vertical body post position, owners can add horizontal posts to make for anti-tuck capabilities, ensuring the body stays in its position during a crash from behind and in addition the mount also allows to run horizontal posts exclusively in order to lower the overall centre of gravity. The set contains all needed mounting hardware and two types of body posts.
Coming from Vigor and made for the Yokomo BD10 touring car is a new 1-piece A front suspension mount. The updated brace was developed to improve overall steering feeling compared to the stock part and it comes machined from high-quality aluminium with a black surface coating making for improved surface protection. Machined silver edge details and white laser-engraved markings make the part stand out.
Coming from Vigor and made for the Awesomatix A800MMX touring car is a 1-piece flex top deck. Machined from high-quality 2.0mm carbon fibre the top deck is of a 1-piece design, different from the MMX’s standard 2-piece upper deck, making for different torsional flex characteristics of the chassis construction. The asymmetrical design allows to swap the top deck without having to remove the spur gear, ensuring swift and easy setup changes.
