“The hottest 1/10th tires are now available from TRC. The “Primes” feature the great long wear European rubber you are used to on a super true, light weight hard composite rim. ”Tru-Durometer” foil packaging keeps your 32 magenta a 32 magenta. Prevents tires from drying out unlike a cardboard box. Foil packaging also takes up less space on your wall or in your showcase. These tires replace the Capricorn we have sold in the past. Better packaging keeps the tires fresher for equal performance pair to pair.”
Schumacher are pleased to announce the signing of top German On Road driver Martin Hofer. Martin is currently running second in the ETS Pro Stock championship and a German National A finalist. He will bring great knowledge to the team for current and future developments. Martin will compete at World, European and German Championship races along with the ETS series, and will make his debut for Schumacher at the ETS race in Austria this coming weekend. Schumacher would like to welcome him to the team!
Martin had the following to say about the deal;
“First of all I would like to thank Team Yokomo for all the years of support and the great time working together. However, sometimes you just need a change and after having tested the Mi4CX I decided that my change was to be a different coloured one!
My first ever RC-car was a Schumacher Storm truck and I’m very happy to return to my roots in some ways. Being part of the well established Schumacher team around Chris Grainger, I think we will be able to bring the Mi4CX to the next level keeping it at the leading edge of modern touring cars.”

The unique Multi-Diff™ caused a sensation in RC car racing when it was first introduced, and the updated version is no different. The Multi-Diff™ T3 LiPo has 3 different settings:
Left and right outdrives turn independently off-power, both lock on-power.
Left & right outdrives turn together off-power, both locked on-power
Full-time solid axle
The lightweight one-way outdrives – manufactured from Hudy Spring Steel™ – have a hex-slot machined at each end, into which a lightweight machined steel hex-style locking axle can be inserted into both outdrives to lock them together. This allows the creation of a solid one-way, meaning that both outdrives turn freely together as a one-way (at the same time), thus creating a solid one-way off-power.
To create a full-time solid axle, a strong steel pin is inserted through aligned holes in the main aluminum body of the Multi-Diff™ and the steel locking axle. This locks the outdrives completely, creating a full-time solid axle.
Includes factory-pressed (non-replaceable) high-quality German one-way bearings, hand-ground for maximum running precision and strength. The one-way bearings must be serviced, cleaned, and oiled regularly (we recommend using #309580 One-way Lube).

“Tamiya/Orion factory driver Jilles Groskamp took TQ and the Win in the TC Modified last weekend at the 17th annual Snowbirds Nationals held in Orlando Florida. In qualifying it was Paul Lemieux who set early TQ but was bettered by Jilles in the very last round on Saturday. His new 417 equiped with the latest Orion Vortex modified motor was fast whole weekend and with some latest set-up changes he was unstoppeable in the last round taking TQ by 1 sec over Lemieux. In the final Jilles was chased by Lemieux and Cyrul hard but they never got the change really to get close. All three ran a flawless race and it was Groskamp who took the win over Paul and Josh.”
