New for the Xray T2’007 is this optional 2mm top deck, a direct replacement for the standard kit version and which makes the car easier to drive because it increases overall traction. This top deck, which comes with the rear carbon brace, is recommend for use on low-traction tracks with either asphalt or carpet.
Xtreme Racing, makers of add-on carbon parts, have released a complete range of carbon parts for the Jammin / OFNA CRT .5 Mini truggy. Available are front and rear 3mm thick carbon shock towers, dual carbon fibre disk brakes, a carbon radio tray and a carbon fibre front and middle diff brace. Available now.
Acer Racing, makers of after market bearing sets, have announced that they have begun selling their Ceramic Nitride Pro Series bearing kits for the Corally RDX Phi US and EU versions. These lightweight bearings have been made using diamond polished ceramic nitride balls for the lowest friction, lowest heat build-up, freest movement & smoothest operation. Available now.
Schumacher have today released some new parts for their latest 190mm Touring car, the Mi3. First up we have some new lower wishbones that are now available in 2 extra versions, making it 3 in total, and are an alternative to the ultra stiff versions that come with the kit and are mostly suitable for carpet racing. The new wishbones come in medium stiffness and soft, and are deisgned for lower grip conditions and because they are less brittle they are suitable for racers that tend to crash more. Also new from Schumacher for the Mi3 are 2 new spur gears, 70T 48 pitch and 96T 64 pitch, that have been created to suit the smaller gear ratios being currently used with low wind brushless stock motors.
Traxxas have announced that they have started shipping their all-new patent-pending Traxxas High-Current connectors which feature high current transfer with virtually zero voltage loss. The connectors sport large textured surfaces on the plug bodies for easy grip while the clever reverse-polarity protection makes them virtually impossible to plug in backwards. Shrouded wire connections eliminate the extra steps to install heat shrink tubing, while beefy, gold-plated copper terminals with large, spring-loaded contact areas ensure a perfect connection every time.
More new parts from Xray for the NT1, with the release of this performance enhancing CNC-machined yellow clutch shoe for the car’s XCA clutch. Due to the material used being harder than on the standard shoe it slips less and and is also more durable, and is suggested to use it only on high bite tracks. Perfect for the serious racer.
Serpent have released a new these Evo2 steering blocks for the 720 which are sold in pairs and feature either 0 or 1mm kingpin angle. These new blocks have 1mm more offset compared to the standard versions, which gives the car a more smooth steering style. The 0-degree blocks work well on medium traction surfaces while the 1-degree blocks work better on low to medium level traction surfaces. However if you swap the left and right 1-degree blocks, the car will then work better in high grip tracks, actually reducing the effects of grip roll, while at the same time giving the car smoother, more consistent, cornering.
More optionals for the NT1, this time from Xray themselves who have released this new optional lightweight XCA flywheel which has been made from tough 7075 T6 hard coated aluminium. Strategically lightened by 20% compared to the standard kit flywheel, this reduces rotating weight without sacrificing strength or durability.
