Factory Pro RC T4’20 MR conversion

New from Factory Pro RC, is their MR conversion kit for the Xray T4 2020. The main aim of the conversion is to change the position of the motor, moving it further to the rear, to give the car better traction and improved acceleration. The ‘Scythe’ style upper deck wraps around one side of the central spur gear making it very easy to remove and features a front & rear hole to mount a post to adjust the chassis flex. The kit includes the chassis, top deck, two new belts and lower belt tensioner for the rear belt.

Alex Thurston is 2020 British National Champion

The fifth and final round of the 2020 British 1/8th onroad Nationals were held last weekend at the Cotswold MCC track. From early practice Alex Thurston (Capricorn) was setting the pace, and a new outright lap record, but a massive crash in the first qualifier destroyed his car and he would miss most of the rest of the qualifying, only getting out for Q4. Tim Wood (Shepherd) would take the top spot in qualifying in front of Kyle Branson (Capricorn) in 2nd, with Thurston, winner of the 4 rounds of the series to date, in 3rd, with Mark Green (Serpent) and David Spashett completing the top 5. At the end of the 30 minute A-final, Alex Thurston would claim victory ahead of his team mate Kyle Branson, with Mark Green in 3rd. The win gives Alex the perfect score for this year’s Nationals and gives him the 2020 title.
