KO ProPo EX-2 ST2 2.4GHz radio

See: KO Propo

KO ProPo have introduced the new EX-2 ST2 2.4GHz radio. Based on the high-end EX-RR radio, the EX-2 ST2 features a new sensor for both steering and throttle offering excellent durability and operation feeling. It prevents decrease of durability and operation feeling due to wear, a common feature on this type of sensor. The new sensor achieves a smooth operation feeling while the durability much more higher than conventional products. In addition, the new sensor outputs a more linear signal with respect to the operation amount. The steering shaft uses now two ball bearings instead of one and associated with a double-sided support, the steering provides a more precise operation feeling and reliability. The spring of the extension unit has been changed to a soft type. The tension of the conventional spring becomes stronger as it is tilted, but with this soft spring, it can be operated with almost constant force even if tilted. In addition, the tension can be adjusted, so you can adjust the spring tightly and change the strength of the “overcoming feeling” when passing through neutral. The EX-2 ST2 2.4GHz radio works with the latest V2.12 software and comes with the KR-241FH receiver. Its availability is expected in August.

Nitro Stampede race report by Ty Tessmann

See: XRAY

Last weekend I was able to race the Nitro Stampede Race at RC Gears in Calgary, AB. This race is only about 3 hours from home so it was a nice change of pace to not have to travel so far. We arrived at the track Friday afternoon for practice, I would be running 2wd buggy and 1/8 nitro at this race. At first the track was really loamy and loose but as practice went on it started to clean off a bit but still had some bumps and ruts. We figured out what tires to run and tuned the car setup a bit and we were ready for qualifying on Saturday. After practice Friday night my Dad and I held a Question and Answer session, the reception by the Calgary club was very good and welcoming, we had a lot of people out with some very good questions.
