Vision Racing Products have introduced their popular XV3 pistons for the Tekno EB410. They feature the same slim sidewall design that reduces friction, yet maintains pack just like the VRP’s 1/8th XV3 pistons. Each pair of pistons comes with two rubber valves and two delrin washers. The pistons are available now in 2-hole 1.7 and 2-hole 1.8 variants that come laser-etched for easy identification.
Coming from VRP and made for the Tekno EB410 1/10th 4WD buggy are several new aluminium option parts. The range includes a front and rear 7075 aluminium shock tower, an aluminium front camber link plate and a battery strap. The front and rear shock towers are made out of 7075 grade aluminium and feature double beveled edges making them carpet and turf friendly. The front camber link plate and battery strap are also made from 7075 grade aluminium and feature a double re-opted look with silver edges to add that bling factor to the buggy.
VRP have introduced their new Fidget Clicker ride height gauges. The tools are of a somewhat uncommon and unique design that allows to adjust the desired ride height simply by lifting and rotating the dial. Two high strength magnets are used to hold the rotating dial to the handle with the latter allowing to easily slide it under the vehicle as well. The gauges are available for 1/8th and 1/10th scale vehicles and they come in black or blue anodising.
New from Vision Racing Products are Delrin bulkhead shims for the Team Associated B64 and B64D. Included in the set are four 0.5mm shims made of high-quality Delrin that are used to raise the front or rear bulkheads, which results in more overall grip of the respective axle.
VRP have released their updated 2018 version gullwing front shock tower for the Team Associated B6. With the growing trend towards carpet and turf tracks the tower was re-designed to feature a double bevelled edge design that is less prone to dig into the track surface. Made from American-grade 7075 aluminium, the shock stay is strong yet only weighs 9.6g. The tower comes black anodised and with silver edge details.
Coming from Vision Racing Products is their new Pro Droop Gauge for 1/8th off-road vehicles. The gauge attaches to the upper shock mounting nuts and allows to easily measure the overall shock length. It features easy to read measurement marks that range from 100mm to 135mm, making the droop usable for both buggies and trucks, and there are two types available, a TLR style that works on the larger 5/40 shock nuts and metric 3mm nut version for kits such as the ones from Team Associated, Mugen, Kyosho or Tekno. The gauge is made from American-grade 7075 aluminium and it is CNC-cut, anodised and laser-etched in house at VRP.
Coming from VRP and made for all Tekno RC vehicles are specific XV3 4-hole shock pistons. By working with Tekno team members, VRP have developed a lineup of pistons that suits the Tekno geometry the best. Available will be 4-hole 1.9, 2.0, 2.1 and 1.9/2.0 split pistons all of which use the popular XV3 piston technology.
Coming from Vision Racing Products are new XV2 series 1/10th scale shock pistons in the form of the 3-hole and 2-hole +1.0 offerings. These are VRP’s 3-hole and 2-hole XV2 piston with an additional hole drilled out to 1.0mm. This allows for a plusher feel, absorbing bumps and imperfections in the track much better while increasing grip and consistency. VRP will be offering 3-hole 1.4, 1.5 variants and also 2-hole 1.6, 1.7 pistons with the added 1.0mm hole.
