Ultimate Racing Compak clutch V3

Ultimate Racing have introduced the latest version of the Compak Clutch, the V3. Keeping the same philosophy of a high-performance mounted clutch, all its parts have been redesigned to guarantee better performance and reliability. The flywheel is 34mm diameter and the aluminium shoes have been redesigned, increasing the contact surface with the clutch bell, improving performance, durability and preventing it from wearing the spring and causing possible spring breakage due to friction. The springs has also been redesigned to adapt it to the new shoes using a very heat-resistant material and thus avoid possible breakage. The clutch is available as a complete and assembled set including flywheel, aluminium shoes, springs, nut, cone collet and shim. They also have a combo with the UR Ventilated Z13 clutch bell with bearings.

Klinik RC universal pro droop system

One of the most critical adjustments on 1/8 Buggies and Truggies is droop. After doing months of research with all the available tools on the market Klinik RC feel there was a better way. Some were almost 1mm off from advertised measurements, inconsistent and frankly poor quality. They wanted a system that is precise, consistent, super simple, small and lightweight for hauling. Measuring shock length only goes so far. The inconsistencies possible in hubs, arms, links, left to right and front to back is incredible. Tighten up your race program with Klinik RC’s universal pro droop system. This set works on both Buggy and Truggy and no other pieces need to be purchased. Machined from premium 3mm carbon fibre, weighs close to nothing and fits in the palm of your hand. The system comes with a super handy pouch to store components when not in use. “0” on the gauge indicates the centre of the axle is set to the bottom of the chassis, “+” indicates droop above the chassis, while “-” indicates droop below the chassis. Very simple.

Xray XT4’23 1/10th 4wd Electric Truggy

Xray have released full information on their new for 2023 XT4 4wd Electric Truggy. The truck sports a new chassis layout with diff, motor and battery moved forward that makes the XT4 faster and easier to drive. The front & rear bulkheads feature a horizontal split design (HS) to retain easy diff access while adding the valuable new diff height adjustment. The front & rear HS bulkheads incorporate a diff height adjustment using eccentric bushings. The design of the HS bulkhead’s inline bushing for the bevel drive gear keeps the gear properly matched to the diff height position. It also creates a more linear orientation for the front center drive shaft, reducing the CV joint angle for increased efficiency and decreased friction and wear.  The height of the rear center drive gear is also adjustable to match the height adjustment of the differential. The new pinion gear is shorter to move CV joint closer to the differential, reducing the driveshaft angle and improving drive train efficiency. The new chassis layout moves the center diff, motor and battery significantly forwards and increases stability, allowing for more aggressive landings and making the truck more forgiving. The central drivetrain features new outdrives and dogbone driveshafts that offer reduced maintenance compared to previous CVD drive shafts. The servo mount was redesigned to fit the new frontward chassis layout and features two aluminum stands with graphite stiffener from top. Other new updates include to side guards, electronics plate, shock towers, suspension holders, battery posts, body posts and steering system.
