All components of the SB.21-5T have been made from the finest materials to ensure high durability and reliability. Equipped with a 5 ports sleeve and a CNC machined flat piston, the engine provides great power over the entire RPM range while having a very efficient fuel consumption which can be crucial in the finals. The 14mm turbo crankshaft is equipped with two high density weights to improve the overall balancing and filled with a silicone insert to reduce the inertia and improve the fuel flow. The special back plate, the optimized crankcase and the knife edged aerodynamic connecting rod help even more to reduce turbulence inside the engine. A special super lightweight cooling head ensures best heat dispersion to keep the engine temperature at a moderate level. High quality Swiss ball bearings, a dust protected front bearing, a modern composite valve carburetor and venturis in 6.5mm, 7.0mm and 8.0mm made of aluminium complete this new high competition engine.

Team Associated have introduced the V2 differential sets for the RC8B3 and RC8B3e. The new V2 differential sets were designed with today’s ultra-competitive racing classes in mind. The engineers behind the doors of Area 51 started with a new internal bevel gear set to make the strongest tooth form with optimal fluid shear characteristics, ensuring long life and the broadest working spectrum for almost all track conditions. The outdrives have been re-worked to make for a perfect bearing surface for smooth differential action under any load. The diff case and inserts were tooled for the ultimate in precision, giving proper gear backlash every time. Hardened steel, straight-cut bevel gears or spurs cap the system off for one of the most efficient drivetrains in the industry.

Team Associated have launched those who have the task of replacing the famous and B5 and B5M, the B6 and B6D Team kits. Divide and conquer! In today’s racing, traction dictates your setup — period! With both B6 and B6D configurations available, getting to the top of the podium has never been easier. Out of the box, the B6 offers racers a setup developed for high to very-high traction, whereas the B6D excels when traction is low to high. Racing at multiple tracks, or where traction changes throughout the day, has never been easier; setups and tuning parts are interchangeable between the two configurations, making the B6 platform extremely versatile. Both versions come with the speed, durability and lineage expected of a true champion. Choose the configuration that suits your track and conquer the competition! Available in June.

Horizon Hobby introduces the new Losi Baja Rey 1/10 4wd Ready-To-Run Desert Truck. The Losi Baja Rey desert truck is built on one of the most advanced chassis ever conceived for a ready-to-run vehicle. It comes equipped with a Dynamite 3800Kv and a waterproof 130A ESC. This potent combination can handle 2S or 3S LiPo batteries (sold separately). The receiver’s built-in AVC (Active Vehicle Control®) system will work behind the scenes, making hundreds of tiny throttle and steering adjustments per second, so more of the motor’s power is translated into ballistic speed and acceleration instead of just flying dirt. You have easy access to the motor and battery compartment.
