JConcepts ReHab tires in silver compound

JConcepts have made their popular ReHab 1/8th buggy tire available in silver compound for indoor clay surfaces. The ReHab design revolves around the centre structure which has medium sized, dense lugs arranged in a stacked configuration. The lugs have strategically placed cuts and grooves to allow flex in dusty conditions to perform even if the track is deteriorating in a long main. The outer portion of the tread fits together like building blocks, with shapes placed together that nest well but also work together to flex laterally to provide steadfast side-bite. The tread tapers off cleanly to the outer side-wall giving a smooth transition during hard cornering.

Tekno RC adjustable Ackerman spindles & wheel hubs

Tekno RC have announced the release of six new option parts to further enhance the performance of your favourite 1/8 scale Tekno RC vehicle starting with these new adjustable Ackerman spindles. They have two important features, they provide the ability to adjust the Ackerman by using different length spindle arms and also have less incline angle for increased steering response. When these spindles are combined with a longer camber link length, front-end stability is improved while boosting overall responsiveness. Then by selecting different spindle arms, you can adjust the corner entry, middle, or exit aggressiveness to your liking. Also new are spindle arms that help fine-tune corner entry, middle, and exit steering response to your liking. Finally, new CNC machined aluminium wheel hubs offer a +3/+4mm offset and are lightened and anodised in the same gunmetal colour used on many of their parts. They are intended to be used on the ET48 2.0 and NT48 2.0 Truggies, however, they can also be used on all of our 1/8th scale platforms with no modifications required.

JConcepts F2 body mount adaptor & nose piece

To mount the JConcepts F2 1/8th truck body, a carbon fibre adaptor is needed along with either the Team Associated body mounts or Mugen versions to place the front of the body in the correct position. For each truck JConcepts has had a specific adaptor produced in carbon fibre which bolts directly to the stock tower and once adding the body mount, provides a custom fit and beautiful finish. There are several adaptors available for vehicles including the RC8T3.2, MBX8T, 8ight-XT, HB D8T Evo and Tekno NT48 2.0. JConcepts also has a replaceable front nosepiece for the F2 truck body for racers wanting to re-build or freshen up. The polycarbonate piece is identical to the F2 item included with the original body and mounts in the same manner. One piece is included in each package and protective film on the part will need to be peeled off after paint and detail performed by the user.
