Kyosho MP9 17.5° front C-hub set

Kyosho have introduced an optional 17.5° front C-hub set for the Kyosho Inferno line of MP9 1/8 buggies. These upgrade parts are direct replacements for the stock front hub carrier. CNC Machined from 7075 aluminum and hard anodized in Kyosho’s gun metal finish, these hubs add strength, rigidity and reliability to the MP9 and MP9e platforms. These 17.5° hubs increase the caster angle and provide additional stability and provide smooth mid-corner steering.

MIP EB410 Ackerman plate

MIP have introduced a new Ackerman plate for the Tekno RC EB410. CNC machined from high quality aluminium in-house for highest precision quality, the part comes anodised and MIP’s logo is laser-engraved. The plate provides more accurate Ackermann geometry throughout the entire range of steering motion.

MIP EB410 shock cartridge spacer kit

MIP have introduced a shock cartridge spacer kit for the Tekno RC EB410. The stock shock cartridge setup uses 2 X-ring seals that ride against themselves but the X-Ring seals aren’t designed to be stacked together. When you do this they will develop “roll”. As the shock shaft plunges into the shock body at high speed during compression, the two seals will act like a pump or vacuum, and pull air into the shock body. Because the shaft rebound is always slower, the seals then move to their proper shape again trapping that air in the shock body.

RDRP EB410 brass suspension mounts & rear weight

See: RDRP

Revolution Design Racing Products have introduced their new brass C and D suspension mounts for the Tekno RC EB410. A direct replacement for the kit’s lightweight aluminium part they add valuable weight especially when running in low-traction conditions or when the track is getting bumpier. Machined from black-coated brass and sporting gold-colour chamfered edges the parts, that can be used separately or in combination, shift the weight bias further to the rear which also helps with rotation into corners especially in low traction conditions while improving overall traction at the same time. Available are the standard geometry C and D suspension hangers and also the C-2mm and D-2mm mounts that bring the suspension geometry – and thus roll centre settings – back to standard when also utilising the RDRP0452-2mm EB410 Carbon Fibre Shock Tower Rear -2mm or any other -2mm rear shock tower.

RDRP Ultra brass shorty battery weight 30g

See: RDRP

Revolution Design Racing Products have introduced their new Ultra brass shorty battery weight. Machined from high-quality brass material, it comes in a black and golden finish. The plate can be used in pretty much every vehicle that accepts shorty-style LiPo batteries and it comes in handy to fine-tune the weight distribution or to add weight when using low centre of gravity shorty packs. The plate lowers the car’s overall centre of gravity for improved cornering performance on both low and high grip surfaces.
