ZooRacing Wolverine 190mm TC body

Presenting Wolverine, ZooRacing’s newest high-performance touring car body on the market. Featuring lots of new features to improve the handling, making it more dynamic, more contact pressure offers more stability in corners with lots more rotation. The aerodynamic efficiency has been improved again as well. The overall length has been shortened to achieve a lesser inertia and therefore a better rotation around the vertical axis. For more steering in fast corners they’ve redesigned the front and hood and made them steeper. To more easily steer the airflow along the sides over the rear wheel arches to the rear wing, to create more downforce, they have tailored Wolverine’s sides a lot. The rear is designed very even and uniform for a low centre of gravity and to ensure an easy airflow to the wing. For a consistent flow the rear fenders have been altered to minimise turbulences at the rear of the body.

Team Bomber AK12 castor block support

From Team Bomber for their AK12 chassis are these carbon castor block supports. The new part improves the twist stiffness of the block body by just installing it on the genuine caster block mount, which improves the accuracy and response of the handling on high traction surfaces. A very effective item for the setting of handling characteristics for various track conditions and layouts.

Yokomo YD-2SXIII high traction gearbox spacer

From Yokomo, for their drift team is this spacer set that can increase rear traction by raising the gearbox height of the YD-2SXIII. The main plate is made of 2mm thick steel and weighs about 18g, and features Yokomo engraving. Furthermore there is an aluminium plate mounted on the front side of the gearbox and an aluminium shim mounted on the front side of the upper deck. The parts contents are made for the SXIII, but it can also be used for E series and R series chassis by adding spacers. Of course, an increase in weight, increases the feeling of ground contact, but a higher differential position will increase the angle of the universal shaft and the force on the tip of the universal axle presses the tire toward the road surface resulting in more traction.
