Pro-Line 1/7 Toyo Proxes R888R tires

Pro-Line is proud to announce a partnership with one of the leading performance tire manufacturers, Toyo Tires. This collaboration begins with their first tire for the popular Arrma 1/7 Street Bash line of vehicles, the Toyo Proxes R888R. All the details from the full-size high-performance competition tire have been recreated to give your Infraction or Limitless the ultimate in scale looks, street performance and long-lasting wear. The Proxes R888R is known for extreme grip, cornering, and braking stability in the full-scale world on track, and it’s no different in the RC world as these tires will transform the handling of your car or truck. The large tread blocks on the outside tread maximise lateral grip while the wide centre rib improves directional stability for all-out speed runs. A High-Performance herringbone weave pattern Belt reinforces the inside of the Proxes for high-speed runs, while their S3 compound provides long-lasting tire wear. They come pre-mounted on Black 5-Spoke Arrma wheels so you don’t have to worry about gluing your tires or waiting for them to dry.

Infinity IF18-2 rear carbon body mount

For the Infinity IF18-2, Creation Model have released this rear carbon body mount. Compared to the standard plastic rear body mount, this new carbon mount increases the height of the body by 3mm. In addition, the cross-sectional shape of the carbon plate and A7075 adapter matches the latest body shapes such as EXTREME’s Diablo and Protoform’s R19 without any gaps. This allows the downforce to be transferred to the tires without loss and improving rear grip. The left and right carbon plates can be fine-tuned with set screws to accommodate individual body shapes. The connection to the car body can be made in three step width directions and also absorbs the twisting of the mounting part when toe-in is applied.

Rêve D SPM titanium shock shafts & screws

Rêve D have produced this new set of shock shafts in the popular SPM (Super Precision Machine Cut) titanium. Constructed from a lightweight high-rigidity titanium material with high-precision machining improves the dynamic performance of the damper and demonstrates smooth road surface tracking performance. The shaft surface has been micro polished using a special treatment that not only makes them ultra-smooth but also easier on O-rings and can help maintain the damper condition for longer periods of time. In addition to the E-ring for mounting the pistons, the set also comes with a gap adjustment shim that can be used when using thinner pistons. Additionally the M3 x 5mm FH screw joins their popular SPM titanium screw series. As with the conventional screw series, it offers weight reductions and more accurate machining.

Schumacher Icon F1 & Eclipse 4 V2 damper rod

New for the Schumacher Icon F1 and the Eclipse 4 is this V2 version of the damper rod. The V2 damper rod for the Icon F1 and Eclipse 4 has a much larger internal hole diameter which could simply be seen as a weight reduction over the V1 , however its primary purpose is to allow for easier filling with damping oil. A larger quantity of oil can be used, leading to a much longer lasting, consistent damping and therefore less frequent maintenance is required. The damping rate when freshly filled remains unchanged and damping setup’s will carry over from the v1 rod.

Team Bomber lightweight 2mm offset spring retainer

From Team Bomber for the TB-AK12 series is this lightweight spring retainer with 2mm offset. With a standard spring retainer, if you extend the length of the pitching damper and increase the rebound stroke, the spring tension is stronger and it is impossible to reduce the height of the chassis centre part. However, installing this lightweight spring retainer with the 2mm offset increases the range of the spring tension adjustment, so it is possible to achieve the ideal height of the car without changing the type of spring.
