Ultimate Racing have announced the release of new big bore shock spring kits. Each kit (front and rear) comes with 6 shock springs that fits the majority of 1/8th shocks absorbers on the market. The kits contain 3 pairs of springs of 3 different hardness to adapt the shock performance to the different track conditions. Made of high resistance elastic steel that ensures the spring hardness and long live, each spring pair is differentiated with different shades of grey.
Turn the 1/16th E-Revo into a track star with the Hi-Flow body from JConcepts. Loaded with an assortment of JConcepts design elements this E-Revo body is all about function, looks and performance. With an incredibly low roof line and maximum window coverage the body sports one of the meanest looks around and also includes a detailed front hood scoop and scale inspired front fender flares. Getting it done on the track or in the backyard has never been more fun or looked so good.
JConcepts have released this pair of firm profiled inserts for use with 1/8th scale buggy tires. Having the proper density insert for track conditions pays equal dividends to the racer and especially toward the end of races. Starting on too firm an insert the driver feels ‘on edge’ during the first run or subsequent runs on a set of inserts. Starting on too soft an insert the driver’s vehicle is not responsive enough or runs the risk of too much insert breakdown during long races which creates a squirmy or inconsistent feel. Having the feel that is just right requires a bit of balance of durability and hardness.
Mugen have released a new range of skins for the rear wing and rear mud guards of the MBX-6. Designed by US custom specialists Upgrade RC, they feature 8 new different designs to choose from, none of which feature any logos, allowing you to decal it up further. Simple to apply, once attached they are strong and flexible, and so can withstand crashes, and most importantly they are resistant to fuel.
X-Factory have released this new motor plate from Dirtz Dialed Partz. Brian Kinwald has created the new plate to be stronger than the stock version, while looking great at the same time. Fitting the X-60 and X-6 Squared, plus all original X-6s with the 4-Gear transmission, it is made from 7075 aluminium for additional strength, with extra material added above the more to further reduce plate bending. Comes in Brian’s signature blue colour with the cooling fins in silver.
oOple are reporting on last weekend’s 5th round of the BRCA 1/10th off road Nationals that took place at the Stotfold track and Saturday’s 2wd event saw Danny McGee take a convincing TQ after qualifying. Mistakes in the first leg allowed Lee Martin loose for a clear victory but Danny secured the win by taking a scrappy second leg and dominating the third leg, marching off from the pack for an easy victory. Following his win in Saturdays 2WD event, Danny McGee got off to a good start in the 4wd class on Sunday by taking the first round with his Losi XX4. It wasn’t to be however and like the previous meeting, despite taking a round of qualifying Danny didn’t manage to make the A final. Kevin Lee lined up on pole for the A final but after three scrappy legs which saw three different winners, it was Neil Cragg that took the win.
Jammin have announced their entry into the Short Course market with the release of the SCRT-10. A true 1/10th scale performance short course truck, this car not only looks the part but also performs on track by being the first in class with a 4wd drive train. Features include an all steel drive train, three oil filled diffs, oil filled shock absorbers, sway bars, full sealed ball bearings and realistic high traction tires with beadlocks. This truck will be available in time for the holiday season and will come in both electric and gas versions.
ST Racing Concepts have announced the release of a number of new aluminium optionals for the Traxxas Mini Slash and Mini E-Revo. Increase the strength and add great looks to your car’s suspension with these CNC Machined aluminium rocker arms. These rocker arms not only look great, but also take out any flex from the plastic stock rocker arms. Greatly reduce the heat from your Mini Slash and Mini E-Revo’s high power brushless motor with this new large finned motor mount and motor heat sink plate. The large finned motor mount is lighter than the stock piece and machined with longer heat sink fins to receive more air-flow and reduce more heat from the motor, while the motor heat sink plate with a finned design is not only light weight, but also further reduces heat from the motor. When the two are used in combination, the heat is greatly reduced from the motor, keeping you running stronger longer. Other new parts include CNC Machined aluminium threaded shock bodies, hex adapters and front and rear shock towers. All parts are available in anodized silver, red and blue.
