1up Racing Pro Pit iron

See: 1up Racing

Coming soon from 1up Racing is the Pro Pit iron. Small but mighty is the best way to describe this feature-packed tool. With it’s included 24v power source, the Pro Pit iron heats and is ready to use in under 10 seconds! An easy-to-read LCD display offers accurate adjustment of the 100-400°C (200-750°F) temperature range. 1up Boost mode offers a nearly instant temperature increase to 450°C (850°F) at the press of a button, making easy work of thick gauge wires. The Pro Pit Iron automatically cools to 200°C after 2 minutes of inactivity to prolong the life of the tip, and shuts down completely after 10 minutes of inactivity.

Pro-Line Slide Lock 1/8 buggy tyres

See: Pro-Line

Pro-Line have introduced the Slide Lock tyres for 1/8 nitro buggy and E-buggy. Specifically designed for smooth and low grip tracks, the Slide Lock features a pattern of small, tightly packed hexagon and triangle shaped pins so you can lay down as much rubber as possible. The tread on the Slide Lock is laid out wider across the tire carcass for a flatter profile overall compared to other Pro-Line 1/8 tyres. Each hexagon pin has a deep sipe down the middle of the tread for added flex and grip on even the slickest of surfaces. The built-in tread flex means you can run harder compounds for longer wear and still have good traction when you need it. The large and stiff side pins reach far down the sidewall to reduce edginess as much as possible. The Slide Lock tyres are available in X2 (medium), X3 (Soft), M3 (Soft) and M4 (Super Soft) compounds and including blue closed cell inserts.

VSR Products ride height gauge handle

See: VSR Products

VSR Products have introduced a ride height gauge handle. Cylindrical ride height gauges offered by companies like GHEA provide a small, easy to adjust solution to a vital part of vehicle set-up. However, it is often difficult to put underneath a vehicles’ chassis and remove it without bumping the car with your hand. Any contact with the vehicle when trying to measure ride height will ruin the accuracy of your measurement. The VSR Products ride height gauge handle has a opening where the GHEA gauge can press into from the top, providing a handle that makes it easy to consistently check your ride height.
