MIBO introduces it latest product, the Touch Duo Racing Charger. This AC/DC 400W unit is a dual-channel charger and discharger with a touchscreen display. It has built-in balancers with up to 200 W per channel for all battery types (NiMH, NiCd, LiPo, LiHV, Li-ion, LiFe and lead-acid). The charger is designed to be powered from a 100–240 V/50–60 Hz mains supply, a 12 V lead-acid battery (traction or car battery), or a suitable stabilised power supply. The charger is equipped with XT60 sockets in both channels and is shipped with 2 JST-XH service connector adapters allowing direct connection of power cables and JST-XH connectors of 2–6S LiPo packs. If you use packs with XT60 and JST-XH connectors, you don’t need any charging cables. You can use common Sky RC or RC System adapters to connect service connectors from other systems.
The A10MF is the latest front wheel drive chassis release from ARC based on the new A10 platform. Using a mid-motor design that keeps all transmission parts as low as possible, the new FWD class features super LCG design that helps to improve the handling, especially on the high traction indoor carpet tracks.nnA total of 120g of brass weights are included in the A10MF kit, with 80g directly behind the front bumper.2 pcs of 10g are then placed inboard of each front suspension arm, both helping to increase front wheel traction and increase overall stability, while keeping the weight as close to the centreline as possible.New improved V3 Upper A-arms are included to further improve rigidity and durability.ARC’sV2 caster gauge is included with the A10MF for racers to easily adjust caster angle without extra tools.
Describing it as ‘The next-generation tool for motor testing and tuning’ Hobbywing has unveiled the Tunalyzer Motor Tuner. It is used to test the brushless DC motor and its internal components and can measure the Kv value, rpm, current, end-bell timing and sensor elements of the brushless motor. These parameters can be is played on the LCD in real time, so that you can have an intuitive and full understanding of the motor used. In addition, the built-in Bluetooth of the Tunalyzer can establish communication with the esc through the mobile phone app to realise the parameter setting and firmware updating of the esc.
Mibo has just released 2 servos types aimed specifically for use in 1:10 scale RWD RC Drift cars. Available in a 33kg and 18kg option, the servos are extra powerful and quick programmable digital low-profile brushless servo with steel gear and double BB-ed output shaft. All-aluminium case for perfect cooling under high load. The 18Kg servo was tested specifically for a competition RWD Drift cars. The brushless motor provides enough torque in order to keep the car stable at an angle and on quick transitions. Offered in a range of vibrant colours, what really sets the 33Kg model apart from other RWD servos, is its exceptional power. At standard BEC voltages, the torque value is almost double what most other servos are able to produce. Thanks to this, the front wheels are rock solid in holding the line and angle. Keeping the same speed of initiation and transitions, it maintains stability of the car and removes any unwanted twitching from overshooting angle and returning back. Smooth operation and gyro signal filtering are then a matter of course, with the brushless motor and modern software. Modern software ensures a perfect gyro signal filtration for a smooth drive, without steering hunting. It is programmable using the USB programmer/interface for MIBO servo and PC software. You can set your own values for parameters, such as Servo angle, Servo neutral, Damping, Output power, Sensitivity, Soft start, Reverse, etc. Plus you have an option to enable SANWA SSR, or FUTABA SR mode.
After a few teasers over the last few weeks, touring car newcomers Iris has unveiled the ONE competition car kit fully developed and designed by RUDDOG. Project lead designer Andreas Myrberg implemented countless novel and revolutionary features into the all-new Iris ONE. Featuring a unique pushrod design with torsion springs and a single-lever rotational shocks, the centre-of-gravity is super low, thus improving overall performance. Combined with sturdy double wishbones, the high-performance suspension package ensures fast and consistent lap times run after run. Moreover, the newly developed pitch and heave shock improves handling under braking and high speed cornering. Together with an ultra-narrow bulkhead design, the efficient three-belt drive train results in perfect weight balance. With three identical belts, less belt tension is required than with a conventional two-belt set-up. Many unique details, such as an optional direct-mount aluminium fan, have been integrated into the design of Iris ONE to give you an edge over the competition.
P Stickers, a personal sponsor of Team Yokomo star and World Championship runner-up Christopher Krapp, have a very nice team clothing collaboration going on with Team Yokomo and Team Yokomo Europe. Having done work for the brand previously, they are now offering the opportunity for racers to get hold of this range with drivers able to register their interest by contact Team Manager Krapp for more details.
SMJ has introduced two High Traction Shock Spring Spacers options for 1:10 electric touring cars. Simply place above or below the shock spring to improve grip and traction. The spacers allow for fine adjustment of grip without changing the shock spring. Type A is the aggressive type with excellent response while Type M is a mild type.
Futaba has just introduced this new HPS-CB701 servo which is intended for nitro buggy and car use. The HPS servo series achieves amazing torque and low power consumption and is UR (Ultra Response) mode compatible. Featuring a 3 piece all aluminium casing, it features metal 1-3 stage gear and a metal final stage gear.
