Capricorn LAB C801 aluminium servo saver

Capricorn LAB C801 aluminium servo saver

New from Capricorn comes this aluminium servo saver assembly that allows for increased Ackermann geometry changes. The toe link plate and the steering bellcrank are of a split design allowing to change the actual length of the bellcrank by moving the link mounting plate forth and back up to 4mm in order to adjust the Ackermann effect and thus overall steering feeling. The new assembly that contains the servo saver lever, steering bellcrank and link plate is CNC-machined from high-quality aluminium, it comes black anodised and is especially helpful when running spec tyres or on low-grip tracks.

Tekno RC SCT410 option parts

Tekno RC introduce new option parts for the SCT410 short course truck.

Other new drivetrain parts are the lightened differential outdrives. They save 12g, are made from hardened steel for ultimate durability and are sold as pair.

Pro-Line Slash 2wd bumper, axles & wheel nuts

Pro-Line have released a number of new items for the Slash 2wd. First up is the all-new race-inspired front bumper, brace and bulkhead, the former featuring Pro-Line’s unique ‘Flex Mount’ brace that absorbs all impacts rather than transferring them into your Truck and potentially damaging vital components. The two vertically mounted screws that fasten the Bumper to the Brace act as pivot points for the Brace to rotate around allowing the Pro-2 Bumpers to bend but not break. Next up is the Pro-2 ProTrac Axle kit with ProTrac Suspension Kit. The all steel construction of the shafts, outdrive, axles and pins provide maximum durability and can handle all the power your motor can muster. Pro-Line includes super Lightweight Outdrives in the Pro-2 Axle kit to improve acceleration by lowering rotating mass and also includes Axle Snap Rings that eliminate drive pins from ever falling out. Finally Pro-Line have new blue anodized aluminium nuts which have deep serrations that dig into the wheel and provide a secure hold against the rigors of Racing and Bashing.
