Japanese company Rony have released a number of new parts today, first of which is the new thicker version of the T-530 1/8th scale CanAm body that we showed you previously. Meeting customer demands, this new version is made from 1.0mm thick polycarbonate, as opposed to the original 0.8mm thick that the original version was made from, thus making it more stable and stronger. Also released by Rony is a number of carbon fiber optional parts for the Serpent 720 such as a new radio plate, front and rear shock towers, top rear anti roll bar plate, brake plate and rear camber link plate. All new parts are super light and where applicable they sport more tuning holes and machining too.

We wrote a month ago that the new Kyosho X312T, the .12 motor based on the Team Orion CRF .12, would be made available in Europe on the 10th of July. Well its almost the end of July now, and although its 2 weeks late we have been told that the shipment of engines is now in Europe ready to be sold. The engine, when it was originally badged by Team Orion made quite a splash when it was released, and now that Kyosho has its name on it, and with the engine features some upgrades, expect to see it also making waves, especially when it makes its big time debut at next months European 1/10th Championships in Spain.
We wrote about the new Kawada wheels back in May when they were just CAD images, now over 2 months later and they have the final production samples which you can see above. These wheels are suitable for the company’s M300RSX 1/12th scale and they have a larger diameter than the original versions and are also made very true, for precise handling. Expect them to go on sale on the 25th of July.
Another product from Hot Bodies that we had written about previously is the Moore-speed 2006 Mazda 6 MPS, which will soon go on sale, after being announced at the start of February. From its new air splitter to the revised rear spill plates, the Moore-speed 2006 Mazda 6 MPS is all-new and all about speed and handling. The front bumper, splitter, winglets, and the new bonnet bulge all enhance steering at high speed. A deep aero-channel from the windscreen to the rear deck improves air flow to the rear wing and new lip spoiler, while new bumper spill plates aid the exit of air from under the body.
Atomic RC have released yet more parts for the 200mm of the moment, the Xray NTI. First off we have this rather cool looking aluminum servo saver, which adds extra strength as well as extra bling to your car. Also new and made from aluminium is a right side chassis brace, for more stiffness between the radio plate and rear assembly, and also some lightweight pulley spacers. Atomic RC have also created their own front and rear CVDs made from spring steel and finally they have produced a new front carbon fibre shock tower, with additional shock mounting positions, and a new rear upper camber link with lots of new optionals positions.
