Vigor RC BD8 0 degree +1 rear aluminium C-hubs

Vigor RC have introduced a set of 0 degree +1 rear aluminium C-hubs for RTC-equipped Yokomo BD8 touring cars. The hubs are of +1 specification and thus wider than the standard parts which results in improved corner speed and traction. The hubs are machined from high-quality 7075 alloy, they weigh in at only 4.9g and use a grub screw to hold the suspension pins which further adds to the overall precision.

Vigor RC BD8 ball-raced anti-roll bar mounts

Vigor RC have introduced ball-raced anti-roll bar mounts for the Yokomo BD8 touring car. Machined from 7075 aluminium and coming black anodised and with silver edge details, the parts will directly attach to the car’s front and rear bulkheads and their design with ball bearings makes for greatly improved precision and smoothness, resulting in greater suspension efficiency. The parts also do away with the need to adjust the swaybar slop, making for more convenient car building, maintenance and set-up. The set includes four mount and bearing and it is usable with the original centre swaybar tube.

Vigor RC BD8 carbon fibre flex chassis & bumper brace

Vigor RC have introduced two new carbon fibre option parts for the Yokomo BD8 in the form of a flex chassis and a front bumper brace.

Vigor RC introduce new TRF419X carbon fibre options

Vigor RC have introduced new carbon fibre option parts for the Tamiya TRF419X touring car.
