New from Reckward Tuning are these quick change engine mounts for the Kyosho Inferno MP9. Similar to other versions previously available, they allow the removal and mounting of the engine without the need to re-align the gear mesh due to the 2 piece design. The base mounts are mounted to the chassis and the top blocks, which are attached to the engine, can be removed separately. When re mounting the engine, guide pins ensure that the engine is perfectly aligned with the base mounts each time.
Vita Tuning have produced their Active Caster system for the Mugen MBX-6. Made from machined aluminium, this 2 piece system allows the racer to adjust the original upper wishbone angle by +3 or +6 degrees. Doing this means that the car can be stable at high speeds but give steering when needed at slow speeds, making the car less nervous and easier to drive.
Vita Tuning have announced the impending release of this Stationary Wheel Balancer, which will be made available under the Reckward Tuning brand. Suitable for all off road wheels with a 17mm wheel axle, this system sees the wheel rotate itself to the heavier point, making identification of unequal weight distribution easier. Through the use of plastescine the user can then balance up the wheels and easily re-check them.
Vita Tuning have released information about some new parts that they have made for Reckward Tuning for the Hobao Hyper 8.5 and the Losi 8ight. For both cars there are new 2-piece quick change engine mounting blocks that have been machined from aluminium and allow the user to remove and replace the motor without needing to re align the gears. Both engine mount sets are supplied with the required fasteners. For the Speed 2.5 clutch, Vita have also produced a new set of 3 aluminium clutch shoes.
Vita Tuning in Germany have produced some new parts for Reckward Tuning, in the form of new engine blocks and pivot balls. First up is this new 2-piece engine mounting block for the Team Associated RC8 that has been machined from alloy and is designed to allow you remove, and put your engine back in, without having to re-align your engine each time. Also new for the Mugen MBX5R and MBX5T is this set of 7mm pivot balls, that are also available in 6.8mm for the Losi 8ight, which are supplied with the fastening materials and have more clearance than the standard balls.
Vita Tuning from Germany has created this handy clutch assembly and disassembly tool, and will be made available under the All Mod and Reckward Tuning brand names. Designed to work with the Speed 2.5 buggy clutch and Speed 2.5/28 truggy clutch, the tool helps the user mount the shoes by making it simple to pop the shoe springs into place. This is done by putting the shoe onto the flywheel pin, place the tool over the end of the crankshaft and turning it anti-clockwise, while pushing, to remove them again just do the same but pull.
Vita Tuning have released information about their new big block clutch, which is suitable for use in truggies. This clutch was successfully tested last weekend at the first round of the German truggy Nationals, and Dario Vita, racing a Mugen, won the event with this clutch which was also being used by the Reckward brothers and other top racers at that event. The release date is yet to be set.
