    Schelle B44.3 Short Chasis

    The Schelle B44.3 Aluminum Chassis set, debuted at the 2015 Reedy Race of Champions, is ready for production release! Pre-Orders are open now, with a release date of April 17th. The 2.5mm 7075 Aluminum CNC milled chassis plate is 3mm shorter. Coupled with a new front top deck the new length transforms the 44.3. The reduced length has 2 main effects; the first is that the car is much more fluid and easy to drive in the turns. The combined shorter wheelbase and increased rear weight bias stop the rear and front from fighting each other in the turns, and the car will follow a smooth arc without breaking loose. Secondly, the short wheelbase and increased weight bias aid in more traction on power and exiting corners. After getting through the turn, it’s easier to pick your line on exit and put the power down. Read more…

    Whippits and Rippits

    The outdoor racing scene has a new off-road tire, the Whippits. Built on the 60mm bead size carcass, the Whippits are fresh from the JConcepts design team. Starting with a sit-down meeting with racing legend Brian “Dirt” Kinwald, Jason Ruona went to work creating a beefier bar tire capable of conquering the outdoor blue groove, black groove and sugar type surfaces. The Whippits feature the 45 degree edging Kinwald asked for with light detail separating the pins as a noticeable top and bottom layer. Read more…

    Tekno unveils the EB48SL 1/8 buggy

    April 1, 2015 - 17:51 by Mike Garrison 0 Comments

    Tekno RC SL

    Tekno RC has officially announced the new EB48SL 1/8 buggy. This is NOT a replacement for the EB48.2, but instead a new buggy kit for the emerging “Super Lite” 1/8 buggy class (hints EB48SL). The Super Lite class utilizes 2S LiPos (instead of 4S) and Pro4 SC motors and ESC’s. Why you ask? Many offroad tracks, especially smaller indoor facilities, do not want the liability, wear and tear on the track, and overall carnage that would be caused by full on 4S powered 1/8 E-Buggys. The Super Lite class lightens the cars, tames down the insane power, and in turn changing the minds of many track owners, and allowing 1/8 enthusiasts to race. Read more…

    Imbue V2 Brass Pistons

    Riding on the success of the first gen brass shock pistons, Imbue has announced the release of their V2 16mm Brass Shock Pistons. Switching from the conventional tapered body design, to a more efficient tapered hole design, the tapered holes offer a higher flow, resulting in a quicker rebound or softer compression depending on orientation. In addition to the V2 release, a second hole configuration has been added to the lineup. 5×1.45mm shock pistons offer another tuning option for racers looking for every tenth. The 5-holes are better suited for rough conditions, while the 8-holes offer solid all-around dampening.
