Made for HB D819RS/D819 vehicles is this new aluminium front chassis brace from T-Works. The front brace is machined from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium and comes black anodised for wear and looks. Machined silver edge details further enhance the visual appearance and included with the braces, comes suitable mounting hardware.
Mon-tech Racing have presented their new F22 bodyshell for the Formula 1 class. After intensive testing during the past several months on tracks across Italy and around Europe, Mon-tech Racing has signed off the new F22. This body shell offers excellent traction and high cornering speed without lacking steering. Thanks to their new Mon-tech Racing moulding system, they can ensure maximum product quality and lightness and, like all Mon-tech Racing products, it is printed with top quality polycarbonate.
More new drift specific parts from Yokomo who have introduced this RX Conversion for YD-2 S series chassis. The set can convert the high mount midship motor YD-2S series to the graphite double deck chassis of the rear motor. In addition to the main parts such as the main chassis, upper deck, gearbox and motor mount, all the screws required for replacement are included, so you can easily try the latest RX specifications. As with the RX chassis kit, there is three colours available to choose from such as black, purple and red.
Yokomo have released a special version of the R160 / R100 speed controller, which is explosively popular due to its smooth throttle feeling, equipped with an original program dedicated to drifting, called ‘Drift Spec’ added. Many users have already installed the conventional R series in drift cars, and especially in RWD drift cars as it seems that the ease of handling in the low speed range and torque can brought out by changing the program, but in the Drift Spec, this is done by default. In addition to optimising the throttle feeling for drift driving, the delay time when shifting from braking to reverse by throttle operation has also been modified, making it even easier to use for drift driving. Of course, if you use with the dedicated programmer R26P, you can easily change the feeling to bring out the optimum characteristics according to the driving conditions and the driver’s preference.
ARC have released the R8.3E, their new 1/8th onroad electric competition car kit. Coming standard with a 5mm carbon fibre chassis which not only reduces weight but has excellent flex characteristics that delivers superior mechanical grip. The R8.3E transmission retains a 3-belt drive system through the centre of the chassis. The belts and pulleys are the same specifications as the R8.3. The integrated 3-piece upper deck connects the front bulkhead to the rear along with a fan mount for cooling the motor. The upper deck design complements the main chassis to provide optimised flex, but at the same time, reduces the likelihood of the belt flipping over the pulley. The new motor mount and a new internal ratio of 2.4, allow a wider gear ratio tuning window on the R8.3E from 4.75 to 5.85. The centralised battery position sees the batteries sit either side of the drive system close to the centerline of the chassis to improve weight distribution and lower the rolling moment. The R8.3E features new longer rear shocks that are 3mm longer than the previous model. This allows the shocks to be moved closer to the centerline for improved handling characteristics. Further improvements have been made to improve smoothness and sealing to deliver a more consistent rebound.
For the Kyosho MP10 TKI2 comes these optional shock towers from T-Works. Machined from 7075 T6 aluminium and hard coated in black, they are a direct bolt on replacement that give a different look than the kit standard ‘bronze’ coloured versions but also offer additional upper link mounting holes for increased tuning possibilities.
Exotek have produced this heavy duty adjustable rear toe suspension mount system for the Team Associated DR10, SR10 and similar series. Drop in ‘C’ mount for the stock chassis that allows you to select your desired preset rear toe in, 0°, -1°, -2°, -3°, via the included machined delrin inserts. Super easy to set and install with no need for set up tools, it uses your stock heavy duty arms! The alloy mount is machined from 7075 alloy and brilliantly polished and anodised for a factory look.
T-Works have released this handy precision weighing scales. Supplied in a handy hard shell transport case, the device itself also has a protective cover over the scales which when removed can double as a tray to help weigh small rolling items. Able to measure up to 500 grams in 0.01gram increments, it is great for weighing everything from parts to the correct amount of oil in your gear diffs.
