Based on Team Associated’s wildly successful, race-winning RC10B5M platform, the RC10SC5M Team Kit represents the next step in the evolution of competitive short-course racing. Starting with the data acquired through the development of the B5M and T5M, the engineers behind the doors of Team Associated’s AREA 51 set out to design the ultimate short-course truck chassis that utilizes all the advantages that come with a mid-motor configuration.
Factory RC has just introduced their new ‘Motor “Tech” Plate’. This go/no go tech plate allows for quick inspection of any ROAR® approved motor for physical dimension requirements. The plate is machined from 2.25mm carbon look plate to the maximum tolerances allowed by ROAR®. This allows the individual inspecting motors for legality to use a non magnetic tool to inspect the rotor and can for dimensions to assure legal racing.
Sweep Racing has released a sneak peek of their newest rubber creation. The new tire has yet to be named at this point, but the small square pin design with tapered side walls is a VERY close match to the recently released JConcepts ‘Reflex’ buggy tire (they even share the same number of pins across). While we can’t say this is an innovative new design that we’ve never seen before, from the success of the Reflex tire, we suspect it will work quite well.
Pro-Line has new Scale Crawler Wheels for all the 2.2” Rock Crawling fans: the Denali 2.2” & FaultLine 2.2”! The Denali is an 8 Spoke wheel design with a D-Shaped hole and scale lug nut detail.

The outside bead-loc ring is a decorative scalloped ring and the inside ring is smooth for maximum clearance.
