Xray have released this graphite, asphalt-spec, front and rear upper deck set for the T2’008 touring car. CNC machined from premium grade graphite material, they have been specially designed and optimized for rubber-tire racing conditions. The narrow design provides appropriate torsion and flex, while the elongated profile reduces unwanted tweak in crashes. A new thinner 2mm top deck makes the car easier to drive because it increases overall traction and so Xray recommend using this optional top deck on low-traction tracks, mainly on asphalt but they can be also used on low-traction carpet. Suitable for the T2’008 EU edition only.
More new releases for the Futaba 3PK from South Korean custom RC design company Craft RC. The new skin is called the Checker series, which is available in purple and red, and is made from top quality material that is easy to apply and which stays good for a long time.

We received a report from Gene Hickersen on round 2 of the RC Pro East Series that was held at Sumter, South Carolina last weekend. There was a light turnout of 110 entries due to several other big races the same weekend on the East coast, but the track was challenging as the best from the East battled for the Division Championship. It was perfect weather with 85′ F temps. The track was watered before each round, but got very dusty and bumpy as the weekend went on.

We recently told you about the new range of Brushless Pro motors from GM Racing, but to add to the range that was already announced, a 6T version is also now available. This is the motor the current British Champion Chris Grainger has been using recently with great success, winning the recent Aldershot BRCA National. The 6T delta winding is equivalent to a regular 3T, with the delta type winding giving greater efficiency and therefore run time over the normal Y type winding as per most current brushless motors. Pricing on this motor is also extremely competitive but does not reflect its awesome performance.
