XRAY XB4 81mm ECS front driveshafts

See: XRAY

XRAY have introduced the new 81mm ECS front driveshafts for the XB4. The unique ECS driveshafts with 2.5mm pin equalize the speed between the drive shaft and the wheel. With a unique 2-piece joint between the axle and the wheel, the same extreme wheel turning angle is divided into two shallower angles without joint binding. This means that at the same cornering speed, the inner wheel will not bind or vibrate. Drive through the corner is more stable, more precise, and easier to drive. The ECS Drive Shafts help also with improved landing after jumps. With the ECS driveshafts, wheel vibrations and noise are decreased to minimum, steering is increased, stability of the car is increased and cornering speed and smoothness are noticeably increased as well.

See: Pilot R/C Products

Pilot R/C Products have introduced new carbon fibre ball stud washer set. The fully carbon fibre washers feature a 3mm inner diameter with a 7.8mm outer diameter and come in the following thicknesses: 0.5mm, 1.0mm and 2.0mm. The carbon fiber ball stud washers are an upgrade over their plastic and aluminum counterparts because they won’t tweak or flatten under pressure while remaining the lightest possible mass for the application, not to mention the exposed carbon finish for that true factory look. This makes them great for precisely adjusting the height of your ball studs when adjusting your roll center, adjusting your wheelbase, shimming suspension components and much more. The set comes with ten washers for each thickness, equaling thirty washers total.

VRP presents the latest evolution of their XV2 piston and the Quick Rebound System, the “GameChanger” shock pistons.

Rebound System:

First we started with our XV2 Piston and the Quick Rebound System it has. It was important to keep the exact function of that system because its proven track performance and obvious ease of understanding. The Rebound Valve has been re-designed and updated to be smaller and use less of the inner thickness of the piston to improve durability. This minimization was also needed to fit another ‘system’ into a small part like a piston.

See: Team Associated

Team Associated introduces new aluminum servo horns designed for the steering servo in the RC8B3, RC8B3e, RC8T3, and RC8T3e. These aluminum servo horns are machined from 7075 T6 aluminum, laser etched spline size and equipped with large m2.5 screw for clamping. They are stronger than the stock plastic ones that come with most servos and due to the slightly shorter length, they provide a smoother steering feel while decreasing the load on the servo. Available in 23T (fits Airtronics, JR, KO, and Spektrum servos) and 25T (fits XP Digital, Reedy, Futaba, Savox, and newer-style Hitec servos).
