We wrote yesterday about the C6 circuit engine combo pack, well today RB Products have released this new ceramic main bearing (14.2 x 25.3mm) for the C6 range that includes both the circuit and buggy version of that engine as well as the Speedline Xenon motor. Benefits of this bearing include quicker acceleration and longer life thanks to a lighter weight and higher strengh of the ceramic balls and of course increased durability.
Our friend Philip over at Neo Buggy has once again got some scoopage, this time with this picture set from the new Novarossi 21-5K buggy motor. The successor to the massively popular Plus 21-5 engine, the main differences with the 5K are a P5 sleeve and an updated crankcase all meant to produce more power and overall better performance.
A while back we wrote about the upcoming release of the new 3D12 and the CD12 1/12th pan cars from Diggity Designs. Well the cars still wont be available to the general public for another 2 weeks but the 3D12 has been spotted on RC Tech belonging to owner Sean B. The car features an innovative rear floating system as we mentioned before and the quality of the overall kit appears to be top notch but we hope to bring you more details when the car is released.
Our Korean partner site RC Forum, once again has the scoop on the latest Much More discharger, the AAAD, which is designed for those racers that take their Mini-Z racing seriously.

It comes in this cool blue anodised casing and should look good on your pit table as well as aid performance.

OCM Racing, makers of the Kaos 1/8th scale buggy, have released some cad images of their new truggy, the Kaos DT-19T. The chassis itself looks to have a very standard design for a car in this class with the only stand out feature from the cad images being the Allen key adjusted track rod system that looks like a very neat idea. Expect to see this car in the shops in March.
Piktor, the French company that has been teasing us with images of their all new and rather unique Rush 2 1/8th scale off road buggy, have finally shown us the complete body shell of the car. This computer generated graphic shows the body shells flowing curves, including the F1 type winglets in front of the rear wheels, as well as the unique front wing. I have to say it looks good, now if they would only release the car we’d all be happy.
