Yokomo RO 1.0 Rookie Offroad 2WD Kit

Continuing its efforts to attract newcomers into the hobby, like with the GT1 release, World Championship winning manufacturer Yokomo has released the Rookie Offroad RO1.0.  A 2WD racing buggy with an easy-to-assemble parts configuration based on a flexible, crash-resistant integrated resin main chassis, it is aimed at beginners looking to enter offroad for the first time.  Since the basic structure is the same as the racing machine, it is possible to adapt to various driving conditions by changing the settings even when driving on a purpose built offroad track.  The suspension and drive system parts are the same design as the top model and come pre-assembled, so by replacing them with lightweight carbon parts and highly accurate aluminium parts, it is a structure that can be finished as a high-end machine.  Although it is a beginner-friendly model that emphasises stability, it is also attractive for its expandability that can meet expert-level driving.

Tekno ET/NT 2.0 Universal Driveshaft Set

Tekno RC has announced Universal Driveshafts for the ET48 2.0 and NT48 2.0 1:8 Truggy.  These new universal driveshafts are black oxidised for wear resistance and CNC machined from high-quality alloy steel, living up to Tekno RC’s reputation for durability and fit-and-finish.  Due to the universal driveshaft’s design, little maintenance is necessary, and dirt and dust won’t impede the joint’s functionality.  On bumpy and rough tracks, universal driveshafts perform well as the suspension is able to function more effectively without the extra binding of a CVA assembly.  As a result, the truck can absorb bumps better and is less likely to “grab a rut” and flip over when cornering.  These new universal driveshafts are a direct replacement for the stock CVAs and only require one additional 12x21x5 bearing per axle.

JConcepts 13mm shock accessories

JConcepts has released its latest aluminium shock accessories for the Team Associated 13mm shocks. The aluminium cap is precision machined with angular bleed hole for correct building procedure and maintenance.  The cap features weight reducing holes positioned about the centre to reduce weight and add to the popular styling.  The shock collar has a knurled exterior for extra grip and making quick adjustments. A notch has been added for location and identifying a track-side ride height change.  The spring cup is a finishing touch when it comes to a complete 13mm shock build for spring concentricity.  They are a 5mm off-set which is the most popular setting on the front of the B6 and B6.4 vehicle.  The aluminium material in either blue or black anodising provides a healthy footing for the hot new spring of choice or the trusty stock AE 13mm spring set.  The cups feature a unique shock shaft path which helps lock the spring cup in position during hard crashes or collisions.  All three items are available in blue or black anodising and include the etched JC logo.
