Factory Team have introduced a new tuning option for off-road 12mm shocks. The new 2mm thickness V2 shock pistons decrease damping and pack compared to their standard 2.5mm thickness kit counterparts. Keeping the same 2-hole valving, the shorter thickness piston allows for faster fluid flow, and less pack while the shock takes fast impacts from jumps and bumps. This results in a small shift, giving the car more traction and less pack, which racers can tune for an advantage in a wide range of conditions.
Some various new items from T-Works, starting with a number of new carbon parts for the Mugen MTC2 touring car. Starting with a new rear body mount plate that comes with carbon body post spacers, with the spacers also available separately and also for the same car is the new front upper bumper plate also in carbon, both parts featuring additional machining for looks and further weight reduction. In offroad for both the Kyosho MP10 & MP9 as well as the Mugen MBX8 and MBX7 is a hard coated 7075 T6 aluminium servo saver lever.
