OfficinaRC X4 brass 6mm pivot balls

From OfficinaRC for the Xray X4, these brass 6mm pivot balls are made in Italy with the best machinery and by expert craftsmen with many years of experience. The brass used, thanks to its characteristics, guarantees maximum sliding by minimising the friction of the pivot ball in the arm. The weight is very similar to that of the original versions.

JConcepts tire inner sidewall support adaptors

The team at JConcepts have developed a new option for tire sidewall support. During high traction or loaded conditions, tire sidewall deflection causes oversteer and inconsistency with driving performance. By adding the inner sidewall support adaptor and gluing it into place, the sidewall effectively becomes much harder and allows a driver to enter smoother arcs and radius turns on the race track. Already used in competition, the sidewall support pieces have shown to work on glued, sealed, or naturally grippy surfaces where traction rolling or oversteer is an issue. In addition, when conditions are rough, bumpy or dusty, the additional support drives smoother and with more consistency. Available for 1/10th buggy (above) and 1/8th buggy tires, they come in a pack of 4 pieces.

Pirani RC MRX-6X radio plate stiffener

From Pirani RC for the Mugen MRX-6X is this carbon fibre radio plate stiffener. Machined from 2,5mm thick carbon, it mounts directly to the front of the radio plate, bridging the front of the plate at three points to create a much stiffer assembly. This part helps make the car easier to drive in high grip conditions.
