Losi 69 Camaro 22S No Prep drag car

With the popularity of No Prep Drag Racing exploding, Losi has introduced this ready to run 1969 Camaro drag car. Carefully crafted to give a classic look while still fitting into the rules and regulations set by the No-Prep Drag Racing scene, it has all the advantages of an aluminium chassis such as electronics protection, side impact guards, and a clean wire management system with plenty of 22S option parts. It’s designed with racers in mind with many outstanding features including officially licensed Mickey Thompson tires, limited travel oil filled front and rear shocks, low centre of gravity rear shock tower, extended body mounts, optional heavy duty sway bar, adjustable weight front bumper, elevated transmission, adjustable turnbuckles and a fully adjustable wheelie bar. You get an all-metal gear transmission for concrete dependability along with a Spektrum SLT3 transmitter and dual protocol receiver, Spektrum Firma 100 amp Smart ESC and Spektrum Firma 6500kv brushless motor.

JConcepts Team Associated DR10 wheelie bar

JConcepts has designed a new wheelie bar for the Team Associated DR10 which delivers on looks, versatility and performance. A successful design starts with a solid mounting location to resist twist and flex. The aluminium rear wheelie bar mount designed to fit into place provides solid placement. The anodised black with silver chamfer highlighting give the amazing look but more importantly replaces a stock plastic item which shores up a huge issue with the stock wheelie bar assembly. Backing into the design, attaching steel ball-ends to the assembly works wonders when connected to genuine Team Associated ball-cups threaded into aluminium tubes, steel Fin turnbuckles and secured with 3mm jam nuts to hold adjustment and stability.

The black anodised aluminium parts feature a pin in the centre which will sit in the ball cup when the turnbuckle tool gets installed from above.

Flávio Elias takes 2020 Brazilian national title

Last weekend the 3rd and final round of the 2020 Brazilian nationals was held at the track of Americana as the race had been postponed in December due to the pandemic situation. Again Shepherd team driver Flávio Elias showed great performance and took the TQ spot but he had difficulties in the race and had to retire allowing Eduardo Dulac to take victory. The result however, along with those in the previous two rounds, was enough for Elias to take the 2020 Brazilian national 1/8 IC track title in front of fellow Shepherd racer Samuel Prato.
