Last weekend Thunder RC hosted the 2017 Tennessee Winterchamps in Nashville. Owner Robert Dirla plans to replace his dirt with a carpet off-road track, so this was likely the last trophy race on their wonderful yellow river-bottom dirt. X Factory’s Paul Sinclair took the pole position in both 2wd modified buggy and 2wd mod Short Course. Paul said:

“In 2wd buggy Jeremy Daniels challenged me all weekend. We swapped TQ runs through qualifying, each pushing the other faster, and I was able to lay down the only 25 lap run of the weekend to finally secure the #1 grid spot.”

Infinity 22 3.0 carbon fibre rear tower brace


See: X Factory

X Factory have introduced the new Infinity carbon fibre rear tower brace for the TLR 22 3.0 with 3-gear laydown transmission. Designed by J.P. Richards, with final tweaks from X Factory’s Paul Sinclair, it moves the shocks to the front of the tower and arms for less tower flex and better control of the arms. By moving the shocks forward and bracing the tower, the shock better controls the arm’s motion. It pushes off jump faces harder and absorbs landings better. This modification also makes the car more consistent in corners, especially on power during corner exit.

X Factory have introduced Infinity’s option parts for the Team Associated B6 and B6D composed of front and rear carbon fibre shock towers. All shock towers are machined from 4mm carbon fibre with additional material above shock holes for maximum durability. They are are completely identical to the Associated B6/B6D front and rear shock towers except the XF-I123 rear shock tower raising the upper shock mount holes in order to utilize the longer B5m rear shocks. This tower also raises the wing mounts slightly, in order to keep the wing in turbulent-free air, maintaining it’s effectiveness.

X Factory Infinity Kyosho 2wd vehicle carbon idler shaft

See: X Factory

X Factory have introduced the new Infinity 5mm diameter idler shaft for any Kyosho 2wd vehicle. This extremely light tube of carbon fiber is cut to the right length, just ever so slightly bigger than the stock idler shafts, meaning the bearings for the idler gears are an easy press fit. This more perfect fit helps eliminate even the tiniest bit of slop in your transmission, resulting in a car that runs quieter and goes longer between rebuilds.
