STRC Drag Slash aluminium options

Introducing ST Racing Concepts’ new line of option parts for the Traxxas Drag Slash. CNC machined aluminium front bumper improves durability of your Drag Slash and adds a bit of weight to the front of the vehicle to help prevent the front end from lifting during hard acceleration. The aluminium front caster blocks improve durability and add a great look to the Drag Slash, while the aluminium rear motor guard/Wheelie bar mount provides a solid mounting point for the rear wheelie bar and takes away any unwanted flex. Finally, the aluminium heat-sink finned motor plate improves heat dissipation of the motor and adds that factory look to your Drag Slash. All option parts are CNC machined from high quality aluminium and available in anodised blue, green, gun metal, red and silver.

JConcepts DR10 & SR10 +2mm motor plate

JConcepts has rolled out a sweet looking replacement motor plate for the DR10 and SR10 vehicle line-up. With the evolution faster vehicles, drag racing, and speedy dirt oval racing, a serous crash is inevitable. Looking at the typical construction of the second operation processes on standard motor plates, it easy to see why bending is sometimes an issue. The design team at JConcepts has incorporated a honeycomb milling affect with placement more suited to surrounding geometry making the plate lightweight and very rigid in multiple directions. The honeycomb features add a 3D look featuring the natural aluminium while the rest is available blue or black anodised colours. The motor plate is compatible with the Team Associated DR10 and SR10 while remaining lightweight. Slight chamfering on the 3mm thickness material allows the rather beefy plate to look quite slim and trim. In addition, longer slots have been designed into the motor plate to allow larger pinion sizes to accommodate the needs of the hardcore racer.

Yokomo BD10F stabiliser set & competition capacitor

Two new items from Yokomo, the first of which is a rear stabiliser set for the new BD10F FWD touring car. Since the rear stabiliser is not standard equipment on the BD10F, this set is effective when you want to improve steering response and improve performance on high-grip road surfaces. Three types of stabiliser bars (1.2, 1.3, 1.4mm) are included. Also new is a capacitor for racing that maximises the performance of your ESC. When the load becomes high due to sudden throttle operation it supplements the electric power and enhances the acceleration. Each cord is attached to the battery ± terminal of ESC, but since it is non-polar, it can be used regardless of which pole it is attached to.

Xpress Dragnalo DR1S 1/10 4wd EP high power TC

Xpress have introduced their Dragnalo DR1S 1/10 4wd EP high power touring car. Traditional touring cars are designed for use with a 2S LiPo in line with a lot of racing standards set by the racing organisations. But with the advancement in both LiPo and brushless power systems, the DR1S was designed to handle much larger amounts of power. The DR1S was designed with the goal to handle all of that power. From Circuit racing to drag racing and 2S LiPo to 6s LiPo, the drivetrain was designed to deal with all of these high powered systems. For Drag racing application, this car was designed to withstand the power which the current 1/8th power plants are able to generate. The height adjustable wheelie bar was designed to minimise launch times and stabilise the car after launch.

Hobbywing XeRun D10 drift series motors

Following the release of their drift specific XeRun XD10 Pro ESC, Hobbywing have now introduced these new drift series XeRun D10 motors. Like the ESC the motor is also available in black, red and purple. Internally, the new motor stator is optimised for drift and improves motor efficiency in drift applications. A built-in high-precision sensor board, combined with drift-specific fan rotors, provide excellent motor linearity and drivability while greatly improves motor efficiency. The 10.5T motor weighs approximately 158g while the 13.5T is at 165g (including 3 gold insert weights). The lightweight motor allows user to easily tweak their weight bias on their car. A neat feature is the the rotor is equipped with a fan that provides great heat dissipation. The special-shaped gold fan on the rotor cools the motor while making a pleasant sound, especially when Turbo is turned on. Optional rotors are available. The motor comes factory soldered with high quality 3.5mm banana plug for easy access swap to different motors with the 3.5mm male also included in the XD10 ESC.
