Calandra Racing Concepts in the US have released a number of new parts for their own line of carpet racers as well as something for off road buggies. First up the release of a carbon fiber cross brace for the Gen-X (above) which mounts to the CRC lower arms, keeping the front end strong, straight and true even with the heaviest impacts.

Also new are a number of super strong and light titanium parts such as upper pivot balls for the Pro Strut front end, front end screws and tie rods, also for the Pro Strut front end.

Rony parts for Spada and NT1

Rony parts for Spada and NT1

Japanese company Rony have announced the release of some new carbon parts for both the Kyosho Spada and the Xray NT1. The Spada gets a new chassis plate which Rony have made from carbon fibre, replacing the standard aluminium version and therefore saving weight without sacrficing strength, although not sure how heat dissipation will be handled. New for the NT1 is a rather beefy looking 4mm thick carbon fibre rear shock tower, the latest in a long line of companies to try their hand at this part.

Serpent brass Battery holders

Serpent brass Battery holders

New for your Serpent chassis are these brass battery holders for the companys 960 and 720 chassis’. A direct replacement for the original plastic version they have been machined from a single piece of brass. Using these new heavier battery plates brings more weight to the lowest part of the car and helps prevent the car from grip rolling in high traction conditions and thus allows your car to corner at higher speeds.
