JConcepts Mini-T 2.0 & B Fin titanium turnbuckle set

JConcepts have produced a titanium Fin turnbuckle set for the Losi Mini-T 2.0 & Mini-B. The base of the design is centered around a 4mm titanium hex size which gradually tapers down into a 2.5mm thread base design which accepts the standard Losi Mini-T and Mini-B ball-cup configuration. The focus of the styling surrounds the lengthened adjustment hex area and the ‘finned’ cut that rotate about the centre. The turnbuckles are lightweight, and the original ‘Fin’ design brings out the glamour and quality that makes titanium one of the most sought-after exotic materials in the world. The JConcepts turnbuckles are produced with left- and right-hand threads for ease of adjustment. The #2975 has another feature, a black colouring which gives the stealthiest look in the pits and on the track.

RC Maker MTC2 carbon upper bulkhead set

RC Maker introduce their brand new carbon upper bulkheads for the Mugen MTC2. These 2.5mm CNC Machined Upper Bulkheads allow more flex on the caster axis and provide improved traction for your MTC2 Chassis. 3 Different Versions provide different caster settings for all tuning options front and rear. Front Caster is a great tuning option to balance between high and low speed steering. Less caster provides more low speed steering for technical tracks, while more caster provides more high speed steering for fast, flowing tracks. Rear Caster on modern chassis’ defines the rear wheelbase. More rear caster shortens the wheelbase for smaller, more technical tracks where rotation from the rear is required. Less rear caster lengthens the wheelbase which provides support and stability for more open, high speed tracks where confidence in the rear is required to push. The plates use the original pill inserts and also feature the same thickness, leaving all geometry unchanged.
