Pro-4 SC vehicles have a lot of power, and the 12mm wheel hexes that are used can strip easily if the wheel becomes loose. This results in wasted wheels and tires, and an impact on your wallet to boot. So Tekno has released these all-new SCT410 stub axles with a massive M5 thread in order to use a larger M5 serrated nut that will not come loose. This makes for a far more durable stub axle, fewer stripped nuts and less tire waste due to wheels coming loose. It’s a win, win, win!

Now R/C cars and trucks can enjoy the many advantages of Futaba S.Bus2 servo technology (first seen in the aircraft world). Because they’re brushless, these servos last much longer than brushed servos, with much faster response times. They stand up to jolts and vibration better, offer smoother operation, and programmable capability allows drivers to fine-tune performance to meet specific applications.
For any electric modeling application, the high-quality TrakPower TK955 Digital Soldering Station delivers superior results with easy, and exceptionally precise operation. An easy-to-read digital display on the control unit shows your selected temperature, heating status and operational alerts. Simple, push-button controls let you adjust the heat in fine 1° increments. The included Security Key locks in your selected temperature so that it remains steady within 1.8° F (1° C) even while the iron is idle.

8 months since the news of Maifield opting for Novarossi power in 2014, comes the sudden announcement from Team Orion that the TLR star will also be running their nitro line as of 2015, having signed for the electric side back in June.
Orion’s timing of the news is no coincidence, the news coming just a couple of days after Maifield lined up on pole for the IFMAR Worlds final, many tipping him for victory in a tense showdown with nationals rival Tessmann, it wasn’t to be however. The news comes as a slight surprise given Adam Drake’s influence in the TLR team and masterful knowledge when it comes to engine tuning and mileage, Maifield joins the likes of Phend, former team mate Cavalieri & Tebo running the CRF nitro powerplants.
Adrien Bertin said, “Drivers of the caliber of Ryan Maifield have their choice of engines to run. It is with great satisfaction that we welcome Ryan in our team and admire his decision to run with Team Orion CRF engines. It is another confirmation of our successful product and team strategy.”
Is a reshuffle on the way for Team Orion with Maifield going 100% with the Swiss company ? Watch this space.
