Leadfinger Racing D819/E819 A2.1 Tactic body

See: Leadfinger Racing

Leadfinger Racing have introduced the new A2.1 Tactic body for the HB Racing D819 and E819. The A2.1 Tactic body is a one off design that delivers a tuning option in between the original LFR Assassin, designed for low grip surfaces and A2 Tactic bodies, designed for super high bite surfaces. The idea for the A2.1 body was spawned by Doug and Justin Fales when they were looking to gain more stability and slightly more down force to the existing A2 Tactic. The A2.1 Tactic body features cowl scoops on the side pods. Depending on the performance your looking for, these can be left alone to add to the overall down force of the car, or you can choose to drill them out for additional cooling. When opened up, the pipe side of the cowl pulls air directly past the block and manifold of the nitro motor. The A2.1 Tactic body sports also a fin on top of the roof. The advantage is more stability in high speed sections of the track and a more precise feel under hard cornering. The body features also an additional down force on both side pods and rear swoop. The new A2.1 body is available both in light weight or standard thickness and it comes in clear, including window masks, stickers and a front wing.

See: BF Materials

BF Materials have introduced a new line of battery connector holders for HB Racing, Mugen Seiki, Agama and XRAY buggies. Made of tough Nylon plastic, they hold in place your battery connector and prevent it to disconnect during a race. Depending on the versions, they should be mounted onto radio tray with two self tapping screws included (HB, Mugen, Agama) or replacing the original middle cover XRAY). The XRAY version also has a specific version for different connectors (JST or servo). Both do not require screws or modifications to the radio tray, as they mounts straight to the original.

HB Racing D418 rear gear box & arm mount sets

See: HB Racing

HB Racing have introduced a new rear gear box and three sets of arm mounts for the D418. The new rear gear box is designed for high grip astroturf and carpet race tracks. It raises the position of the diff and upper arm mount to match the roll center when using a low ride height. The HB Team Drivers report it makes the D418 easier to drive on high grip surfaces, improves corner speed, and smoothes out rear end grip. This new rear gear box should be used with D418 Arm Mounts 4, 5 or 6. The set includes one gear box, aluminum tube, R2 skid plate (standard, use with this application), and R4 skid plate (for future options).
