Vigor T4 centre balance weight & floating ESC mount

Vigor RC have introduced a centre balance weight and floating ESC mount for the Xray T4 line of touring cars. The set contains a 2-piece brass centre balance weight that consists of a 25g bottom and an additional 10g top weight whose design ensures a symmetrical weight distribution. In addition the kit includes a carbon fibre ESC mounting plate that is attached to the lower centre weight, making the speed controller, capacitor, receiver, and transponder all float above the main chassis plate, ensuring a more natural chassis flex. The centre balance weight set is usable with Xray’s centre carbon fibre chassis stiffener brace.

Vigor BD9 narrow top deck

Coming from Vigor is a new narrow carbon fibre top deck for the Yokomo BD9 touring car. CNC-machined from high-quality carbon fibre the top deck is 9mm wide, making for softer flex characteristics than the standard item, which comes in handy especially in lower grip track surfaces. The upper deck is available in 1.6mm and 2.0mm thickness to further widen the range of possible chassis flex settings.

Vigor TC7.2 CF 3mm shock towers & centre link

Coming from Vigor and made for the Team Associated TC7.2 touring car are 3mm carbon fibre shock towers and a carbon fibre centre link. Starting with the shock stays, the parts are machined from high-quality carbon fibre and at 3mm they are 1mm thinner than the original parts, providing increased steering and rear traction in lower grip track conditions. The shock towers are available as separate front and rear variants. Also new is a carbon fibre centre link to connect the floating servo mount and motor mount. Using the part allows to fine-tune the chassis tweak to suit different track conditions from medium to high-bite.

Vigor 1/10th touring bulkhead alignment blocks

Vigor RC have introduced their new bulkhead alignment blocks for some of the most popular 1/10th scale electric touring cars. Machined from high-quality aluminium and coming black anodised the blocks are inserted between the left and right bulkhead and help to get them straight when fastening the bulkhead screws. The result is a perfectly parallel bulkhead assembly that prevents chassis tweak while ensuring less stress on the spool and differential bearings. The blocks are available as 18mm/22mm variant for the Yokomo BD8 and BD9, as 19mm/23mm variant for Xray T4 and Awesomatix A800 cars and also as 18mm/20mm block for Yokomo BD9, ARC R11, Infinity IF14 and Mugen MTC1 kit.

Vigor R11 2018 carbon fibre chassis & top deck

Vigor RC have introduced their new flex main chassis and 2.0mm new design top deck for the ARC R11 2018 electric touring car. The 84mm wide chassis made of 2.25mm carbon fibre was designed to increase torsional flex which can be beneficial especially on lower grip surfaces. Also new is the 9mm wide top deck made of 2.0mm carbon material. The new style top deck helps to fine-tune overall chassis flex for a wider range of conditions.

Vigor ARC R11 shock towers

New from Vigor are these 3.0mm thick lowered shock towers for the ARC R11. The new towers are made from thinner 3mm carbon fibre, compared to the standard 3.5mm material, for increased torsional flex and so improved traction on lower bite surfaces. The front tower has been lowered by 1.0mm and and rear by 2.5mm which they claim gives the car more grip and better response. Works with the original plastic short shock ends, all parts are a direct fit.

Vigor BD8-2018 carbon chassis, top deck & shock towers

Made for Yokomo’s popular BD8-2018 touring car are Vigor RC’s new carbon fibre main chassis, top deck and shock towers. The chassis is of an updated design with larger cut-outs under the diffs for increased torsional flex and thus improved steering and traction in lower bite track conditions. The chassis is cut from 2.25mm high-quality carbon fibre and a direct fit. Also new is a narrow-design 2.0mm carbon fibre upper deck. The item sports updated outlines for an overall slimmer appearance and thus increased torsional flex, again helping with steering and traction in lower grip conditions. A direct replacement for the standard upper deck the part can be mixed and matched with any chassis type. Last but not least come new front and rear shock towers for the use with short shock absorbers.

Vigor RC IF14 multi carbon battery mount

Vigor RC have introduced their new multi carbon battery mount for the Infinity IF14 touring car. The tweak-free battery mounting system is constructed from carbon fibre and aluminium and it does away with the need to use tape to strap the battery into the chassis in favour of a mount that only slightly touches the upper parts of the battery. The result is more natural and equal flex left to right while the overall design also allows to shift the battery forth and back in order to fine-tune the car’s weight balance.
