Mikimodel BD Body Stopper V2

Mikimodel, the Yokomo distributor for Italy, has announced a second version of its Body Stopper for all Yokomo Touring Car models.  In the world of increasingly extreme and increasingly difficult competition, aerodynamics plays an ever more important role. This is why the original Body Stopper was created to give the maximum possible stability to the bodywork, to prevent them from deforming in the front area which is the most subject to deformations at both high and low speeds.  Now the Body Stopper V2 not only has the classic upper screw (M3x6 or M3x8 recommended) which is used to come into perfect contact with the bodywork, but also adjustable anchoring holes to best adapt to all models on the market.

MXLR A12 Fan Holder & Damper Check Adapter

MXLR has released a new Fan Holder and a Damper Check Adapter for the Awesomatix A12 1:12 platform.  The fan holder is the final version of the prototype which Max Mächler used to win the 2023 1:12 SPEC World Champion Title.  It is not easy to fit such a big and strong fan into the A12 but using smaller than 30mm wasn’t an option because of the sacrifice in performance.  At the Worlds Mächler used a heavily modified Fan to clear with the body shell.  After several more tests and versions MXLR finally found a suitable way which doesn’t require as much modification, if any at all.  They moved the Fan more forward and mounted it way steeper on the holder.  The key to still get a great air flow were the small side dams.  The results of using the Fan Holder with a strong 30mm Fan at 6,0V is a much lower motor temperature.  Depending on the track layout and grip conditions, it reduces the temperature by 12-18 degree Celsius.  This leads to the option of using more timing at the motor and/or longer rollout, which means more speed.  Weighing only 2,6g (without screws) the Fan Holder is 3D printed with relatively durable material which is able to absorb impacts to a certain degree.
