WellRC Racing WellProtected front bumper support

WellRC Racing present their WellProtected front bumper support for the Capricorn C04, Mugen MTX7 & Serpent 750. Created to prevent front body flex on nitro cars, these front bumper supports absorb most of the impact from front collisions resulting in far less damage to the car and body. An added handling benefit confirmed by team drivers is increased stability and predictability which allowed them to confidently push their cars harder, especially at high-speed where stability is incredibly important. Made from durable and flexible material with honeycomb design, they will always return to their original shape even after hard impacts.

Bittydesign Hyper GT8 body

Bittydesign have released their second entry into the GT class following the previous release of the Seven65 shell back in October with the announcement of the Hyper GT8 body. Bittydesign have changed the proportions and shapes of their 1/10 project by designing a new version adapted to the needs of the 1/8 GT category, the phase of refinement took several months to optimise every detail. The Hyper GT8 is a GT body with a stunning look, the lowered front part generates an excellent cornering entry, the narrow cab and the modelled sides have been designed to stabilise the air flow that transfers onto the large rear wing making the model easy to drive, stable at the rear but with excellent steering.

RC Maker MTC2 flex dampeners & tuning options

New from RC Maker these bulkhead/top deck flex dampeners are a must have to tune the flex of your MTC2. Restricting the lateral bulkhead axis of flex, they are a powerful tuning option which can be used on both the bulkheads, and the top deck. They also have some quick adjust body stopper shim plates to make changing the height of the body stopper a breeze, which is really handy for when you’re changing bodies or body heights on the fly. Finally they have got some accurate new caster tools and adapters, so you can measure your caster and ensure it’s spot on. This allows you to detect a misalignment and make any adjustments necessary to correct it, digitally, or with your setup station.

Associated RC8B3.2 G10 suspension arm inserts

Team Associated have introduced these new 2mm G10 suspension arm inserts for the RC8B3.2. G10 fiberglass is a great upgrade to increase arm stiffness and durability over the stock plastic suspension arm inserts. While G10 is a more flexible material than carbon fibre, these inserts are thicker than the current carbon fibre inserts (2.0mm vs 1.2mm), so these inserts are stiffer than the current carbon fibre parts. Perfect for the upcoming heat of outdoor season.
