Hiro Factory have introduced new heavy duty C-ADJ-S brackets for the HRF10X-PB formula car. Machined from high-quality 7075 aluminium and coming in a dark gun metal finish for wear and looks, the brackets are of a beefier design for improved rigidity and more precise and consistent camber and caster setting, even after taking a heavy hit during a run. The set includes a left and a right hand bracket that are direct replacements for the original parts.
MonacoRC have introduced their all new body bag, a stylish way to conveniently store and carry multiple body shells. The bag is large enough to transport a whole fleet of touring car bodies, with or without wings attached, with organising pockets allowing to carry spare wings and other accessories. The bag is personalised with the unmistakable MonacoRC graphics and a customised rubber zipper puller. The bag, as other MonacoRC products, has been developed with the driver needs in mind, it is durable and perfectly sized to carry other lightweight items as well. To top things off, the bag is foldable when not in use ensuring it can be stored easily.
Yokomo have announced the release of their new +1mm carbon fibre front shock tower for their BD9 touring car. Precision-cut from high-quality carbon fibre the shock stay features 1mm higher upper shock mounting positions, increasing suspension up travel and preventing the shocks from bottoming out. The result is better and more predictable car handling on bumpy tracks and during high-speed cornering. The shock tower is a direct fit.
Coming from 7075.it and made for the Awesomatix A800MMX is a 47g LCG battery weight. Only 1.1mm thick in total the weight fits snuggly into the machined slots of the original MMX chassis and also 7075.it’s own optional flex main plate, ensuring a very low overall centre of gravity while adding weight when needed. The battery weight comes in handy when running the latest generation of lightweight LCG or ULCG battery packs and due to its interlocking design, it doesn’t come loose during a run while allowing the chassis to flex freely at the same time.
Coming from Associated Electric’s Factory Team brand are precision-ground diff rings for 2.60:1 ball diffs. The precision comes from a flatter, tighter tolerance diff ring that will result in smoother diff operation and longer life, therefore increasing time between rebuilds. The rings are a direct upgrade for #7666 diff drive rings and they fit RC10B4 to B6 series, SC5M and SC6.1, RC10T4.1 to T6.1, and all SC10s buggies and trucks using ball diffs.
Available now from Reedy is their new Sonic 540-M4 competition brushless motor. Internally, the 540-M4 is very similar to that of the 540-M3 that it replaces – it produces the same linear powerband and excellent mid-range feel that have become synonymous with Reedy’s modified motors. However, changes can be good when they serve a purpose. In the case of the 540-M4, the inner bearing has been moved so that it is part of the can instead of the sensor assembly, which more precisely aligns the rotor within the magnetic field while reducing noise and vibration. Externally, the motor has been shortened, which results in more centralised weight distribution within the chassis. The reduced 50.3mm length, combined with improvements to the can design, results in a 5g to 10g reduction in weight. A balanced, high-strength rotor provides powerful fade-free performance. A variety of optional rotors are available to fine-tune for specific applications and tracks. Precision stainless steel ball bearings have been fitted to reliably accommodate high RPM loads. Several versions, including .0T “even” and a 1/12th scale 1S variant, are available and all meet ROAR, EFRA, and IFMAR specifications.
JConcepts have announced their new Cheetah 83mm speed-run wheel for vehicles such as the Traxxas Slash 4×4, Stampede 4×4, and Rustler 4×4, as well as the Arrma Infraction and Limitless. Originally developed alongside the Speed Fang belted tires, the Cheetah wheel can also be used with just about any speed-run or 83mm bead mounting diameter tire on the market. When uncovering the Cheetah wheels, it’s important to choose the application type of the vehicle. Using the included hardware, either a 12mm or 17mm bolt-on adaptor can be chosen, depending on the vehicle at task. The wrenching effort will pay off once all screws are attached and the wheel is assembled. Speed-run vehicles are unique, and with the JConcepts wheels, the driver can choose the spoke look of standard or spice it up with the included dish covers. The dish cover options bolt to the wheel from the inside out, giving a legendary salt flat look of full-scale speedsters. JConcepts wheels are manufactured using advanced techniques to ensure trueness and durability and are branded with the small JC logo for brand identification and authenticity. The Cheetahs are available in 4-piece packs and in white and black colors to match any existing paint scheme or show vehicle.
Coming from H2 Racing Development and made for their Tamiya TRF420MM mid motor conversion kit is a flex top deck. Machined from 2.0mm high-quality carbon fibre the top deck is of a flex design with a cut front end section, resulting in improved overall chassis flex for the use on low to medium traction tracks. The upper deck will become available by early March. Also coming soon is a cross-shaped carbon fibre chassis stiffener that will increase rear traction of TRF420MM and TRF419MM converted cars.
