MXLR adjustable alloy servo arm

MXLR have created this adjustable alloy servo arm to offer you a strong and reliable height adjustable servo arm which stands up to the highest competition demands. The 3mm range for the height adjustment of the ball stud is a huge setup option which you shouldn’t miss to play with. A higher turning point generates more initial response, while a lower turning point calms down the steering and creates a finer resolution. You are able to set any height between 16-19mm without the need to switch any plates or parts of the horn, which makes it a quick setup change option by sliding the ball stud up or down. The slightly bulkier arm design adds some extra strength and reliability. For the perfect ‘play free fit’ with the servo spline the design utilise a clamping design. Available in two versions, 23T & 25T, the servo arm is machined from high quality black anodised aluminium with silver edges and laser engraved logo.

Axon BD10 & T4 lightweight double joint bushing set

Axon have released these new double jointed CVD parts for the Yokomo BD10 and Xray T4 for improved steering feel. The Axon lightweight double joint bushing is made from a highly precise aluminium and dramatically improves the performance of the double joint drive shafts. The clearance between the inner and outer cross shaft pins has been optimised for maximum drive efficiency and it is also very strong and durable, which dramatically improves the acceleration of the machine. The double joint cross shaft is made of high strength steel instead of aluminium for maximum precision, and the outer race is ultra precision polished. This part plays an important role in the connection between the outer and inner shafts of the drive shaft, so the high rigidity from the steel material provides the best traction. Completing the parts are machine cut cross shaft pins another key part of the drive shaft. All parts are to be used with manufacturer original shafts and axles.
