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.

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.

JConcepts ‘Fin’ lightweight wheelnuts

See: JConcepts

JConcepts introduces fin styled light-weight 17mm fine thread wheel nut set for 1/8th off-road vehicles. These high precision wheel nuts are flanged and knurled for locking security and feature a closed end to protect from dirt and debris build-up in the axle or hub.

Completely CNC machined, the large flange and clamping surface area supports the wheel and helps maintain geometry during flex and load. The larger area also provides more footing for the serrated area which provides a more comfortable lock-down. Cutting weight was accomplished by reducing material sections in unneeded areas, in addition, the nut is sliced removing even more bulk and adding a “Fin” like appearance. The closed-end cap is anodized in black and blue colors and features an etched logo.
