See: MIP

MIP have introduced the Pucks 17.5 Drive System for the Team Associated B6.1 and B6.1D. It features an aluminum based drivetrain system which includes a 2-piece aluminium outdrive cup and aluminium outdrive hub, two bi-metal bones, and the replaceable plastic orange wear Pucks that take the place of the inferior steel pins. This combination greatly increases the longevity of the drivetrain and most importantly decreases the drivetrains overall rotating mass by a whopping 50%. The decrease in weight directly results in quicker acceleration, deceleration, and lower motor temperatures.

MIP EB410 shock cartridge spacer kit

MIP have introduced a shock cartridge spacer kit for the Tekno RC EB410. The stock shock cartridge setup uses 2 X-ring seals that ride against themselves but the X-Ring seals aren’t designed to be stacked together. When you do this they will develop “roll”. As the shock shaft plunges into the shock body at high speed during compression, the two seals will act like a pump or vacuum, and pull air into the shock body. Because the shaft rebound is always slower, the seals then move to their proper shape again trapping that air in the shock body.

MIP EB410 Pro4mance chassis bundle kit

MIP have introduced their new Pro4mance chassis bundle kit for the Tekno RC EB410. The next generation 13.5 performance bundle rebalances the car and give a stable smooth drive. The new chassis re-configures the battery to the back of the chassis and lays the servo down. The end result is a more balanced weight between the front of the chassis and back resulting in a smoother drive and allows the car to rotate through corners better, break faster, and accelerate quicker than your typical Tekno EB410. The kit also features new carbon spine braces, new servo mounts and front and rear center bones which come standard with MIP 1.5 Pucks. The Pro4mance Chassis Bundle Kit is available in Pre-Order.
