For the XB4, Xray have produced this aluminium steering block & 7° C-hub set. This complete set is machined out of high quality Swiss 7075 T6 aluminium for an ultra strong assembly with reduced flex and improved consistency. This setup would be mainly used for high traction conditions where is helps increase stability. Also suitable for the XT4.
Xtreme Racing have produced these Traxxas Sledge carbon fiber front and rear shock towers. Machined from 5mm Quazi 3k carbon fiber material for superior strength and looks, they are designed to replace the stock aluminum towers for lighter weight. All parts are made high quality US made carbon fibere and machined in the USA.
T-Works have released new CVD shafts for the Yokomo BD11. Suitable for both the front and rear of the car, they are available in 44.5mm and 45.5mm versions. The CVDs have been machined from 7075 T6 aluminium for light weight and hard coated for increased durability. Can also be used with the BD10 and BD9.
RC Maker has released a ton of new option parts for the new Yokomo BD11 in the same vein as that of previous car releases. There is RC Maker’s well now slimflex top decks in both 1.6mm and 2mm variants as well as their centraflex top decks in the same two thicknesses. There is a front carbon bumper mount with 5mm brace that not only looks great but is very strong. For the steering of the BD11 there is the very durable carbon RTC steering arms and they also have a handy steering limiter set which allows for 3 different steering lock angles. There are also the full line of flex options with flex dampeners for the front bulkhead as well as the front of the top deck, a rigid flex brace for the front bulkhead and a rear bulkhead stiffener shim plate to complete the set. There is also a a carbon top deck flex reduction insert and finally RC Maker’s Tweak stick set has been updated for the new car with update end plates.
The JConcepts team has designed a new motor plate and fan mount set for the Slash 4×4 and Rustler 4×4. First, the motor plate is machined from billet aluminium, has added honeycomb machining and is a durable update option over standard parts. Black anodising comes standard with silver chamfered high-lighted edging. Attaching to the motor mount, the fan mount is just as important with billet aluminium construction with lightweight and lower open design, angular mounting geometry, black anodised with silver chamfered high-lighted edging. The included hardware pieces the item together and provides an incredible platform for included fan. The included 30x30x10 aluminium housed fan has a medium-length wire with industry standard JST plug that can plug into many receiver combinations. Depending on the location of the receiver, a JST extension wire might need to be used (not included).
Strength, performance and luster runs deep with the titanium stand-offs from JConcepts. The Fin Titanium items replace the standard parts and feature a light-weight design and with built-in threads are more easily adjustable than their counterparts. The 7mm hex based design allows adjustment with the most popular wrench in the RC arsenal but also tapers down featuring the Fin treatment found on the JConcepts turnbuckles. Included with the stand-offs, the white in colour Delrin pivot bushings are top-notch. The bushings are precision machined to slide on and off the titanium and allow the shocks floating freedom and just the correct amount of fore and aft movement. The 2-piece set includes two 3x8mm BHCS to secure the stand-offs to the shock tower and a standard 3mm locknut is used to finalise the assembly and secure the shock into position. This “medium” stand-off is a direct bolt-on part to the Team Associated B6.4 rear shock tower and also fits the B74.1 vehicle on the front and rear.
Rêve D have introduced the new ‘Type TK’ for the rear (RF) in their lightweight and highly rigid aluminium suspension mount series. ‘Type TK’, which was developed by Takahiro Kawakami and the team, has two rod end ball mounting holes on the upper surface of the suspension mount. By attaching the upper arm to the suspension mount, a direct feeling is created in the movement of the rear suspension, and traction performance and control performance are dramatically improved. There are two types, #6 (57.2-60.4mm) and #7 (60.8-64.0mm), which can be used not only for MC-1 but also for YD-2 series.
New for the Infinity IF15 and IF15W, Creation Model have produced some new options beginning with this new rear shock tower that features a body mounting position 3.5mm lower than std, contributing to a lower centre of gravity. By using the T266 Alu HBP mount it is also possible to utilise a horizontal style body mounting style. The shock mounting positions have also been reduced to 3, offering increased strength and crash resistance. There is also a new carbon camber plate that can be adjusted in fine steps. The diagonal direction of the holes incorporates the latest setups for the IF15. The bottom hole is the same original hole 2 (lower), the more you raise it, the more calm the rear will be. Finally, the carbon camber plate that can be adjusted in a diagonal direction that incorporates the latest setups for the IF15. In addition, the A-arm type camber link enhances rigidity and is a set of parts that greatly support rear grip. The bottom hole is the same as original hole 2 (lower), the more you raise it, the more calm the rear will be.
