ProTek’s new 160T low profile servo

ProTek LP Servo

ProTek R/C’s has released their all-new 160T Low Profile Digital “High Torque” Servo. This bad boy is ready to meet the demands of the serious 1/10 and 1/12-scale racer. Featuring a robust 274 oz-in of torque at a lighting quick .06 transit speed at 7.4V, the 160T’s small profile belies its power within. The metal drivetrain of the 160T glides on a full set of ball bearings and the entire unit is protected by an all-aluminum case. The gray-anodized case not only looks sharp and speaks to the servo’s quality but it also effectively dissipates heat. With over 17 pounds of torque it was essential to ship the 160T with a blue-anodized aluminum servo horn, and aluminum servo ear guides. The new servo is available now!

JQRacing & AMain team up again

i-VrhdbSQ-3

Ever since the beginning of JQRacing (formerly JQProducts), and AMain.com (formerly A Main Hobbies), both companies have proved to be forward thinking, and innovative in their business practices. JQR and AMain have always been working together, and now with JQRacing’s goal of building a structured, uniform, worldwide race team, a collaboration between the two companies was almost inevitable.

JQRacing is working together with a number of RC brands, creating a group that together offer everything required for competitive racing. JQ provides the cars, and the other brands provide the other products, such as tyres, engines, fuel, and stickers. The goal is to collaborate with the best brands and create the greatest possible factory team, where all drivers race with the same products, much like how racing teams are run in other forms of motorsport.

AMain.com has always been committed to racing and carrying the widest selection of race level products and thus was the only US retailer able to meet the needs of the JQ Team Racers. JQRacing.com will continue to carry all of the partner products as well. This means that JQ drivers will be able to purchase their cars directly from JQ, or JQ distributors, at their team pricing, and with this new deal, all partner products either from AMain.com or JQRacing.com. With this new move the availability and support for JQTeam drivers and JQ customers improves dramatically!

As of right now, the JQRacing Team’s partners are LISTED HERE. However, negotiations are underway for 2015, stay tuned.
