Team Bomber pink & brown S-line side springs

Team Bomber have added two additions to their line up of HQ S-line side springs with the release of new pink and brown versions. The pink version is now the hardest spring in this range, with the brown the softest. HQ side springs are best suited for a wide range of popular carpets, high-grip road surfaces and conditions where a solid diff is used. The result of a close cooperation with a Japanese spring manufacturer with testing and technical capabilities they found that the taper of the springs helps reduce on power traction loss during cornering when using a differential. Made with high quality materials, the number of winds of each spring and all their dimensions have been carefully checked to ensure consistency and the best end product.

MXLR caster correction stickers

MXLR noted that there are a few 1/10 TC setup systems out there which have the incorrect caster scale engraved on them. If the scale is too narrow, its one of the incorrect versions, and your caster setting isn’t actually the number it displays. With these MXLR Caster correction stickers you are able to fix your caster scales without the need to buy a whole new system. They are precisely printed and cut for a perfect fit to the setup system. As a small extra, they added FL, FR and RL, RR marks on the stickers to increase the consistency of your setup procedure by using the same setup system part always in the same spot. Two versions for different Setup Systems are available, for Hudy 1/10 TC Alloy System and for the G-Force & SkyRC 1/10 TC Alloy System.
