New for the Tamiya TRF1903 formula pan cars is the WTC wing-to-chassis mount from RC-Carbonstore’s Rebellion-RC brand. The carbon fibre and aluminium assembly will ensure increased rear end grip, better handling, improved stability on bumpy tracks and more predictable cornering. The mount moves the rear wing mount from the power pod to the centre chassis area, reducing unsprung weight. The design ensures only 20g of added weight and the set includes the WTC mount as well as a U-shaped connecting brace for the left and right side motor mounts.
Mon-Tech Racing from Italy have introduced their all-new Montecarlo body shell for 190mm touring cars. The body is of the latest high-downforce design to offer improved steering response, rear traction and ease of driving both at high and low speeds without compromising in-corner rotation, overall stability and looks. The lid is available in ETS legal standard thickness and also as a lightweight variant and it includes window masks, a decal sheet and lightweight wing mounting hardware.
Ruddog Distribution have introduced the new RDRP aluminium bellcrank arm for the Team Associated B74 buggy, a direct replacement for the standard carbon fibre part. Machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium and coming black anodised for wear and looks, the bellcrank arm offers improved strength and greater durability as it replaces the somewhat weak original carbon fibre part that can break in heavy crashes or when touching track boards. The arm mimics the original steering geometry and it comes with machined silver edge details for factory looks.

WRC Racing from Italy have announced the release of a new 60g brass chassis balance weight for their NTX 1/10th 200mm nitro touring car. Designed for the use on high-grip tracks the weight not only ups the car’s overall weight, it also increases the chassis torsional stiffness which comes in handy when running in high-bite racing conditions.

The braces are a drop in upgrade.
