Leadfinger NB48 2.0 Tactic A2.1 body

See: Leadfinger Racing

Leadfinger Racing have introduced the new Tactic A2.1 body for the Tekno RC NB48 2.0. First introduced in mid 2019, the A2.1 Tactic body design form LFR has proven it self on the track with a handful of different platforms. Fitment, performance and looks are key in every design. The Tekno cars have a different lay out for the fuel tank and throttle linkages then other platforms. However this presented a challenge for making a low profile and sleek design. Fortunately, LFR was able to combat these differences by widening the cab and adding to the size of the side pod scoops for clearance. To keep performance in check, additional down force was added to the rear of the side pods and rear center of the body as well as a shark fin on top the cab to provide more stability. To finish off the design the front scoop was added.

Ruddog CA activator spray

The Ruddog CA activator spray is a cyanoacrylate accelerator spray for the use with all common cyanoacrylate-based super glues. The CA kicker greatly reduces the curing time of thick, thin and super thin glues, making it ideal when glueing on-road and off-road tyres. Simply use the glue as usual and apply a small layer of CA activator afterwards or use an indirect technique by spraying a small amount of CA kicker into a cup and putting the cup over the tyre – the latter can make for more aesthetically pleasing results depending on the glue used. The CA activator spray is available in 150ml spray cans from now on.
