Yeah Racing have introduced their new brass front bumper and servo mount for the Axial SCX10 III trail truck. The mount adds weight to the most forward position of truck and weighing in at 77 grams, it will allow the crawler to climb obstacles easier as it shifts the centre of mass towards the forward of the rig. The part comes machined from high-quality brass material and with a polished surface finish for looks.

They are moulded from high-quality material for a low weight and exceptional durability and come including mounting hardware.

Trion have introduced their new low profile carbon fibre shock towers for the Yokomo YZ-4SF buggy. Machined from high-quality 3mm carbon fibre the shock stays place the shock 3mm lower while also featuring an overall lower design which in combination results in improved stability and higher corner speed on high-bite surfaces. The front and rear tower also offer additional upper shock mount positions for a wider tuning window while the rear tower also allows to mount the rear wing in a high or low position. The shock towers are available from now on.
Coming from JConcepts is the JCI Junior Mortician body for the Axial SMT10 and similar vehicles. The converted to panel truck body is competition friendly with its compact size and uniquely shaped front and rear fender designs. As a racer, front and rear clearance is important for racing and freestyle competition and the Junior Mortician is tightly compressed to help pull-off the most ridiculous freestyle runs possible. Looking into the eyes of the body shell tells you everything you need to know, a menacing and battle tested beast rests behind those optics. JConcepts created an angular front-end, platform front flares for a vintage feel and a very broad centre grille section to back up promises of massive carnage. The panel truck cab and roof-over section is flat and to the point, the windshield has a slight V-treatment for realism. Maximum imagination to the masses is what this body shell is all about with the large exposure panel areas. The tall panel section is a bonus, an art-board in a sense to decorate, decal or paint however the user desires. Included in each body set comes a clear and heavy-duty polycarbonate body, decal sheet and the paint mask for all windows.
