JC Racing Products have introduced their new liner removal tool for the use with .21 nitro engines. It features an outer tube which has a diameter of 15.80 mm with a sprung latch which locates in the exhaust port. When offered into the liner, a second plunger is inserted down the centre of the outer tube to positively hold the latch in a closed position – this helps with removal of liners which can become tight over time compared to when the engine is new from oil residue. The tool has been tested on bores from 16.20mm to 16.50mm and will remove liners which are smaller or greater than these sizes on engines such as Sirio, O.S., Werks, Reds Racing and similar. The tool is 3-D-printed in a high quality fibre impregnated nylon giving it excellent mechanical strength and durability.
Coming from Mugen and made for their MBX8 and MBX8T kits are +2 and +4 RF suspension mounts. The +2 suspension hanger will improve the cars ability to glide over bumps while freeing up the rear end a little bit for smoother cornering. The +4 arm mount will further improve rough track handling, however it is only recommended for higher grip tracks as it increases rear end rotation. Both arm mounts are made of high-quality aluminium and they come anodised in Mugen’s signature blue-grey-ish colour.
Mon-Tech in collaboration with A-Paint have announced the soon release of the F94 1/10th scale formula body shell.

Suitable sticker sheets for the driver helmets will follow soon as do more paint variants.
JConcepts have announced the release of their new F2 body shell for the Team Associated B74 4WD buggy. Designed with aspects learned from the original Finnisher bodies, the F2 provides an even more aggressive look with included details which remain crucial to performance with the F2 body being a drop fit for the popular Team Associated B74. An increased windshield angle provides a steady force upfront during mid-flight wind gusts on large jumps and the forward cab placement changes the performance/visible bias which help steering rotation in low traction corners. The side-pods have been simplified and JC chamfered to remove unwanted changes in height to neutralise the at-speed handling. The rear of the pods have a dual step, scoop treatment which give a first in class look to the F2 body. The rear of the cab has the Finnisher step feature which allows the placement of a secondary side window and also several louver options off the rear. The body is designed exclusively for the new B74 platform and includes all the necessary cut-lines and each package includes two S-Type rear wings.
