ProStar RC8B3 & MBX7R “Outlaw” 1/8 front wing

See: ProStar R/C

ProStar have introduced new “Outlaw” front wing for Team Associated RC8B3, Mugen MBX7R and Eco buggies. ProStar have spent 5 months to test prototypes in different materials. The “Outlaw” front wing makes the airflow aerodynamically channeled smoothly over your front shock tower of your car producing more front end bite especially on larger high speed European and American type tracks. Also included is the optional skid plate that further protects your chassis and the “Outlaw” wing from damage. Available in black, blue, red, orange and white.

Flash Point MBX7R extended engine mount

See: Flash Point R/C

N.American distributor Mugen Flash Point have introduced an optional extended engine mount for the MBX7, MBX7R, MBX7T and MBX7TR. Machined in high quality aluminium, the engine mount reduces chassis flex and increases clutch bell, spur gear, and clutch bearing life. The engine mount extends all the way to the fuel tank post to reduce flex at the clutch bell and spur gear to provide more consistent power delivery. The reduced chassis flex also provides more consistent handling in all conditions.
