From Ultimate Racing for the Mugen MBX8 are some new aerodynamic attachments. First up is this clear lexan front upper arm wing, an aero option that attaches directly to the front upper arms. This tuning option helps to increase front end grip and traction at higher speeds, while helping to improve the front/rear balance in the jumps. These wings are feather light and include lightweight machined mounting brackets that create a strong and lightweight mount for installation. The front wing replaces the front nose-cone on the vehicle with a front wing design that has shown to produce enhanced steering characteristics. The front scoop includes 2 pieces per package, so a driver has enough to outfit their nitro and e-buggy with the same package. This wing provides increased feel and sensitivity in the larger sweeping sections and helped jumping attitude in the tricky jump sections.
AKA Products have released their popular Evo 1:8 buggy wheel in black. The black wheel offers the same great quality and handling drivers have come to expect from the Evo wheels but just in an all new colour.
The crew at Xray are keeping themselves very busy lately, together with the release of their 2021 cars they have also just dropped the news that they will be entering the short course market with what they are calling the SCX. Not a big stretch to adapt their new XT2 2wd truck, we have no details as of yet but we can of course expect detailed information soon.
Schumacher have released their new anti-lozenge top deck conversion for the Mi7. Developed by their drivers over many months, this top deck gives a great tuning option for carpet with the alloy chassis, as well as tarmac with the carbon chassis. Overall it is a softer option with a more symmetrical feel than the kit standard top deck. The anti lozenge post stiffens the car front to back affecting forward traction and stability under braking. The top deck comes with an optional front U brace to stiffen the front of the car if required.
As the M-Chassis class starts to get more competitive, Xpress have released new short shock towers that fit their range of Execute mini cars. A bolt on upgrade for the XM1, XM1S and FM1S, the front and rear carbon shock towers are made to work in conjunction with their V2 long travel short shock set.
For those Xray drivers that want to continue to use their RC Maker options on their T4’21, the Australian company has produced an updated Slimflex chassis and top deck. With the T4’21 seeing only some slight adjustments to the design, the chassis and top decks feature only minor adjustments from the T4’20. The 2.2mm thick chassis profile remains unchanged, however they have now been able to add additional holes to the rear of the chassis to enable the use of their ‘weight shift’ adjustable chassis weights. The topdeck has also undergone minor adjustments after feedback from their team drivers and have now added an additional brace in front of the spur gear to increase the rigidity in high traction and hot conditions to provide more corner speed. If running on low to medium grip, you may want to look at removing the brace for increase flex in the front. The top deck is available in both 1.6mm and 2.0mm versions.
From T-Works for your 1/8th buggy clutch is this clutch spring tool. Sporting a black anodised lightweight machined aluminium handle, the tip allows the user to more easily assembly their clutch by being able to set the springs with ease. The tool comes with a matching aluminium lid to protect the tip and a red plastic end cap for a smooth surface during use, and also to protect the handle if dropped.
