RDRP M17/MT-44 aluminium steering wheel & M17 dial and nut set

See: Ruddog Distribution

Ruddog Distribution have introduced the all-new Revolution Design Racing Products aluminium steering wheel for the popular Sanwa M17 high-end and MT-44 intermediate level radios as well as an aluminium dial and nut set only for the M17. These parts are a quick and easy way to personalise the transmitter to the maximum. The steering wheel is machined from high-quality aluminium and a cool new turbine design greatly enhances the overall appearance of the transmitter while offering improved stability for more precise steering action. The dials and nuts feature a serrated design for better gripping and improved haptics. Both the aluminium steering wheel and the set of dials and nuts are available in seven different colours including black, blue, light blue, green, gold, orange and red while machined silver colour edge details and a laser-engraved logo make the parts stand out.

RDRP B74 slipper eliminator

See: RDRP

Ruddog Distribution have announced the release of the new RDRP slipper eliminator for the Team Associated B74 4WD Buggy. The direct spur gear hub is the ultimate option part for all stock racers as it greatly lowers not only the drivetrain’s rotation masses but also the buggy’s overall weight, making for blistering fast acceleration, lower motor temperatures and thus more power towards the end of the run. The slipper eliminator weighs in at about 17.4g including the supplied ultra lightweight 72T main gear, scrubbing about 50 percent of weight compared to the original slipper assembly it is replacing. Due to its lightweight design the slipper eliminator is best used with motors of more than 10.5T as it will not hold up the power of modified motors.

See: RDRP

Revolution Design Racing Products have introduced a new aluminium bellcrank arm for the Team Associated B74. Machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium and coming black anodised for wear and looks, the bellcrank arm offers improved strength and greater durability as it replaces the somewhat weak original carbon fibre part that can break in heavy crashes or when touching track boards. The arm mimics the original steering geometry and it comes with machined silver edge details for factory looks. The aluminium bellcrank arm is a direct replacement for the standard carbon fibre part.

Ruddog Distribution have announced the release of the new RDRP B74 Aluminium Rear Hubs for the Team Associated B74. The rear hubs are of an updated design that provides improved durability for heavy duty competition usage while offering grub screw retainers for the standard kit suspension geometry inserts, greatly reducing slop over the conventional design. The hubs use the standard kit rear hub link mounts, making them a direct fit and they come machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium. A black surface coating and machined silver colour edge details make the parts stand out.

RDRP B74 aluminium shock towers

See: RDRP

New from Revolution Design Racing Products are aluminium front and rear shock towers designed for the Team Associated B74. They match the standard kit geometry but are of a heavy duty design for durability and stability, increasing suspension efficiency and precision also thanks to the high-quality aluminium material they are machined off. As they match the stock dimensions they are a direct replacement with no setup changes needed when swapping parts over. In addition the high amount of machining, including silver chamfered edges, makes for a visually pleasing appearance while keeping the parts’ weight low. Both the front and rear tower come black anodised for looks and surface protection.

RDRP B74 fan mount

See: RDRP

Coming from Revolution Design Racing Products is an aluminium fan mount for Team Associated’s latest B74 1/10th 4WD buggy. The item is machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium and it attaches to the centre chassis brace by using an already existing mounting point. The mount is designed for 30mm and 40mm fan units that are held in place with much greater reliability compared to just using double-sided tape while also adding visual impact and cool factory looks. The black anodised item comes laser-etched to show off your passion for everything RDRP and it only adds minimal weight. The fan mount is a direct fit on the B74 when using 30mm fan units. 40mm fans only fit certain body shells so some adjustments to the body height might be needed. The mount is also available including a Ruddog 30mm aluminium HV high speed cooling fan (#RDRP0495-RP3).

Revolution Design Racing Products have introduced their new +5mm 7075 aluminium chassis for the ultra-popular Team Associated B6.1 2WD buggy. The main plate adds 5mm of length for an easier to drive car especially in high-bite track conditions such as carpet and astro turf, allowing to pull faster single laps while offering greater consistency at the same time. In addition the chassis will also improve handling on bumpy surfaces where the part will ensure improved stability. The main plate is machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium for strength and optimised flex characteristics while the black anodised surface ensures high durability and factory looks. Machined silver edge details and laser-etched RDRP logos make the part stand out. The main plate is compatible with the B6.1 and B6.1D kits as well as most “under servo” and “under electronics” weight kits.

RDRP YZ-4 SF aluminium steering plate & bellcrank set

See: RDRP

Coming from Revolution Design Racing Products and made for the Yokomo YZ-4 SF are the aluminium steering plate and the aluminium steering bellcrank set. First up is the aluminium steering plate. It is machined from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium and replaces the standard carbon fibre part with the alloy plate improving stability and steering precision. In addition the updated design does away with the kit’s sloppy bushing and shim construction in favour of highly precise ball bearings which results in less play, more precision, an overall improved steering feeling and virtually no wear. The steering plate comes black anodised to match the remainder of the buggy’s alloy parts.
