O.S. Speed R21 Euro II engine

O.S. Speed have introduced their updated R21 Euro 1/8th onroad engine with the release of the Euro II. Based on their successful Euro motor released three years ago, the engine sports a host of updates starting with the new crankshaft. To obtain more power the balance of the crankshaft was updated and now sports 3 tungsten counter weights, giving an improvement in the mid range. Another effect of this change is the return to idle has been improved. The liner now has an additional cooling hole on the exhaust side and the crankcase has been updated to cater for this. The last change is only cosmetic as the cooling head now has some updated laser graphics. Available as stand alone engine or as a combo with the TR01 exhaust and MR02 manifold for long straights in Europe.

LRP have introduced the next addition to their Antix by LRP LiPo hard case battery series. Featuring High quality 50C cells in an angular hardcase (139x47x25mm), as 2S and 3S with the most popular connectors, clever features and a great price. A rubber grommet at the cable outlet ideally protects the jointly placed silicone power and balancing cables. This is again slightly offset from the centre so that the cables do not collide with the battery retaining post and can be easily fed out of each battery compartment at an angle of 0° – 90°. The perfect LiPos for hobby and amateur drivers who are mindful of their budget but still want to use powerful LiPo batteries. Also ideal for RTR buyers who want to start directly with LiPo batteries. Available with the currently popular connectors: Tamiya, T-Plug, XT60, XT90 and EC5.

Xtreme Aerodynamics 1/8th onroad rear wing

Following a few iterations on simulation environments and track days for further assessment the new Xtreme Aerodynamics rear wing for 1/8th scale onroad will be soon available on the market. The new wing sees an improved frontal section to provide more downforce with less height, improving driveability and efficiency. Also the edge design has been slightly changed to improve flow on the outside section. Furthermore, different material tests have been carried out to find the best compromise of thickness/stiffness. The new wing can easily replace previous versions as the mounting holes have the same distance apart.
