Revolution Design Racing Products have introduced a 2.5mm carbon fibre main chassis plate for the Xray XB2 buggy. 0.5mm thicker than the standard alloy chassis, the carbon fibre part offers optimised flex characteristics, especially aimed at low to medium-grip clay tracks. On top of this the increased thickness adds much needed strength to the rear end of the chassis, doing away with breaking issues. The chassis is usable on both the Dirt and Carpet Spec cars and it is available now.

3DGY Designs have introduced 3D printed spur gear cover for the Team Associated RC10B6 laydown transmission, designed by Mike Gay. Typically on laydown transmission 1/10 buggies, the body also acts as a spur gear cover. However the rear cutout of the body leaves the spur gear very exposed. If you race on dirt or clay the majority of dust collects around the rear end of the car near the transmission. If you race on carpet or astro the dust & carpet fibers/strings can wrap on to any moving part, also around the transmission. This gear cover for the B6 laydown transmission is intended to help guard the spur and slipper clutch from debris, as well as protect the body from contacting the spur gear.

Schelle have introduced a carbon fiber battery strap for the Associated B6 and B6D. With the new B6 and B6D release, Schelle engineering went straight to work on a carbon fiber battery strap. The final design is rigid, secure, and minimalist. The strap holds down the perimeter of the LiPo pack while allowing clearance for the plugs and also of the positive and negative terminal markings on the case. The pack is held in place by 3-d printed 7mm hex battery stops which are easy to install with a 7mm wheel wrench. Stainless steel screws are included, but racers can upgrade to aluminum or Ti to shave weight. Lastly, racers can pivot the hex posts and run the battery pack in-line for a more quick handling setup.
