Avid Titanium M3X8 clutch screw

Avid’s new clutch screw is made from the highest quality 6AL-4V Titanium and is packed with a ton of cool features. The most obvious is the large flange to help keep out any fuel or debris from entering your clutch bearing. The second most obvious feature is that you can use a 5.5mm nut wrench or a 2.5mm Allen wrench to install and remove. Lastly, on the backside, they have added a small recess so the screw will never drag on your bearing seal/shield.

Avid titanium lower shock mounts

Avid’s titanium lower shock mounts for 10th scale vehicles make it easy for getting your shocks off and on while not wearing out the plastic from repeated uses. The one design feature we added to this common product is the 6 small holes in each mount. They are not there to lose weight but rather to help keep the mount from backing out as easily when taking the nut off the end, acting as a bit of a serration. Machined from billet 6Al-4V Titanium, they have a 1.5mm Allen head for installation. Each package includes (2) lower shock mount screws and (2) aluminium M3 flanged locknuts.

OGO Vulcano & Wing 1/8th buggy tires

Spanish company OGO have presented two new tire designs for the 1/8 buggy class. Firstly the Vulcano is designed for durability and stability in mind for today’s high wear and high grip tracks. The Wind is designed for traditional tracks with loose dirt, the larger lugs allow the tire to dig deep for maximum traction when it is needed the most. The centre cross split bars give a good forward bite and when used on the rear allow the car to rotate better in turns when this is desired.
