German brand Orcan have released these handy and useful exhaust mounting springs. Sold with tubing and collar, they allow you to mount your exhaust floating, thus reducing damaging vibrations and preventing resonance at high rpm. With other exhaust pipe mounts you would tighten the pipe to the wire with a grub screw, while with this system the pipe is sitting freely between 2 pieces of fuel tubing, while a collar mounted to the end of the spring prevents the exhaust coming off.
I saw pictures of this new Pro 10 from Corally a few days ago and originally thought it was an old car from a few years back but it appears to be new, with a number of sites picking up on it, and also the new Formula 1 chassis. No details are given on either car on the Corally site, but RC Car Action state that both chassis’ appear to have Titanium-fortified Dynamic Strut front ends, 1/12 scale-type rear pods, goo-tube roll dampers and mono-crank steering on the F1 car.
RB Products, the French engine manufacturer, has released a new combo deal for touring car racers.

Serpent has released this new red clutch shoe for use in the Centax-2 clutch system. Made using a red material that is softer than the original yellow shoe, this new version provides a wider sweet spot for correct clutch adjustment yet still provides the highest performance expected in the 1/8th scale class.
The 2nd round of the South Swedish Indoor Championship (SSIC) took place last weekend at the Väst-8 track in Gothenburg where young Serpent team driver Niclas Nilsson was the star of the 50 car field TQ’ing in Modified class while in the 27 turn class it was a win for another Serpent S400 driver Oliwer Garant. Racing on the tight and technical track, Nilsson took 2 A-main Modified victories to claim the overall win ahead of team-mate Christopher Södergren in 2nd and Associated racer Mathias Larsson in 3rd. In the 27-turn finals it was Garant that took the overall victoy by winning all three finals finishing in front of Robin Haugnes in 2nd and Joakim Taxén Swahn in 3rd.

New for the Serpent Centax 3 clutch are these one-piece 2-speed pinions. Made from steel, instead of the standard coated aluminium, they are much stronger than the previous versions as well as more durable, having a better resistance to wear from grit and sand picked up on the track. The 2 pinions are now combined in one piece of metal, instead of 2 separate gears that are screwed together, and this now simply screws to the clutch bell for a very secure and true clutch assembly.
