RC-Project have released their completely revised clutch shoe, ensuring longer life, less maintenance and greater reliability. The new shoes have 35% more contact surface area, which ensures longer life and less bell wear while the pin hole has been reamed to centesimal tolerance and all edges have been CNC chamfered and not tumbled like the previous version. The shoes was produced from a different material and then hard anodised and branded. The 0.5mm washer was eliminated and integrated into the shoes for greater reliability and to reduce friction between flywheel and shoes. The new spring design allows for quick and easy assembly and have been manufactured from a different material that is very heat resistant to prevent possible breakage or load changes during use. The shoes and springs will fit flywheels from Mugen, Sworkz, HB, Xray, Alpha, Agama, Carrara Z9 and Mayako and will work on all bells with diameters Ø26, Ø26.3, Ø26.4 and Ø26.5.
Reds Racing have announced their new 723 Scuderia Pro Engine. This is a .23cc engine and is specifically designed for use in 1/8th truggy. In some applications, a truggy requires more power and the 723 Scuderia is designed for that. Based on their popular 721 Scuderia Pro, the 723 Scuderia piston and sleeve are specifically designed for use in truggy and are optimised for this application. The engine features a high performance 3 needle carburettor which allows better and easier tuning in all conditions. Furthermore, thanks to its mid range needle, this carburettor guarantees more linear power delivery and greater power. The new engine also comes with DLC Coated crankshaft and backplate for improved engine durability. The crankshaft can last approximately 3 times more than a conventional steel crankshaft thanks to the extreme hardness of the diamond coating. Even the conrod life is lengthened by about 50%.
