AVID EB/ET410 Ti shock standoffs V2 & TLR 22 king pin screws

See: AVID Racing Concepts

AVID have introduced new titanium shock standoffs V2 for the Tekno EB410 and ET410 and titanium king pin screws for the TLR22. The shock standoffs use the keyed shock bushings and include AVID’s FastTune feature which allows you to use a common 1.5mm Allen wrench to prevent the standoff from spinning while using a 5.5mm socket wrench on the other side. The other solutions out there require you to either take the shock completely off the standoff to reach the 7.0mm nut or to use a 7.0mm open-ended socket wrench. Don’t forget, you also get to lose some weight from the highest point on the car by switching from steel to titanium.

Mugen MBX8 Eco Team Edition

See: Mugen Seiki

Mugen have introduced the new MBX8 Eco Team Edition that includes many of the same parts from the MBX8 Worlds Edition. The MBX8 Eco Team Edition includes 1mm wide offset wheel hubs increasing stability and cornering and the E2146 inline front uprights offering smoother steering compared to the stock E2147 trailing front uprights and work great in high traction conditions. Also included are the -3mm front upright arms that improve the initial steering response and make the vehicle more stable through the middle and exit of the corner. The new upright arms also reduce bump steer and make the vehicle more predictable in bumpy conditions. The front (84.5mm) and rear-center (115mm) dogbones reduce friction from the stock universal driveshafts. Less friction will give the vehicle a more efficient drivetrain, increase acceleration, and provide more traction. The dog bones are lightweight, durable, and will increase traction. Another option part included in the kit is the +15mm wing mount. It has more adjustment and will help increase mid corner rotation and be more stable in high speed conditions.

PR Racing S1 V3R Evo 2WD buggy

See: PR Racing

PR Racing have introduced the new S1 V3R Evo 2WD buggy. The main focus has been to make the car smoother and easier to drive on track, and this has been achieved with a revised 2.5mm thick -5mm length 7075 aluminium chassis. In addition new insert type hangers have been introduced, and in conjunction with the chassis design allow for much lower rear roll centre, keeping the car much flatter on track with smoother rotation. New Ackerman geometry, and new CNC rear hubs with longer link positons also improve on track driveability. A new motor mount has been produced to lower the motor 2mm into a recess in the chassis, and makes a particular difference on today’s high grip tracks. In addition to all the geometry and mechanical changes, the V3R Evo has been treated to a new body, designed to look sleek and offer more steering with it’s much larger forward mounted cabin.
