Round 1 of the popular Essex Carpet Clash events took place last weekend for its third series at a new venue, in Brentwood Essex, south of the UK. The larger hall greeted the racers allowing for social distancing to take place for all attendees running 2WD (being the only class this series). The track had a flowing layout with nice features and jumps allowing for racing and a satisfying lap. Last year’s champion Ellis Stafford, hit the ground running taking all 4 qualifying rounds and giving him pole position for the 3 leg finals. The finals would make for some awesome, exciting and close racing. Pole man Stafford would only be able to take 2nd overall, following little mistakes in the finals meaning he had to fight his way back through the field. 2nd placed qualifier William Venables would walk away with the overall round win having decent and consistent finishing positions. But this wasn’t made easy for him, as he had to hold off a fast chasing Harley Eldridge who finished 3rd overall, in some close extremely close racing.

An all new platform some of its key features include a straight line transmission, ultra-low mounted tilted engine and open diff, with safety cover providing easy access to the differential.

More new RCV driveshafts from MiBorg RC, this time for the Tamiya TC-01. Available for the front and rear of the car, the driveshafts use ceramic balls instead of cross pins to drive the wheel axle, which results in less vibration even at high steering angles leading to more predictable handling, higher corner speeds and less tyre wear.
Now available from Leadfinger Racing is their A2.1 Tactic body shell for the TLR 8ight-X buggy.
