Belgian SCT Champs crowned at BRTC

Belgian SCT Cup

The penultimate race of the Belgian SCT Cup was held this past weekend on the BRTC race track, the club where SCT started in Belgium some years ago. It’s the last outdoor event of the year, and despite a sunny start to the weekend, race day started on a very wet track. Despite the very wet conditions, a few brave drivers chose to run the first qualifier only to find very heavy and muddy cars at the end of it. As the time passed, the track dried out a bit, and most drivers chose to run the remaining qualifiers in hopes to make the finals. More…

Bittydesign Black Hawk SC body

Body&Fin

We were first introduced to Bittydesign’s Black Hawk short course body at their Euro Contest event back in June, and after a bit of fine fine tuning and tinkering, its now available for general release for all SC enthusiasts. The main concept or USP (unique selling point) behind the Black Hawk is the large rear vertical fin located behind the cab, the fin can be bolted on or removed depending on driver preference and track.

The use of the fin improves stability in the high speed corners and stability while jumping.

The body come with a complete kit that include screws/nuts/plastic washers to fix at best the fin and the side numbers plates. The Black Hawk is produced with genuine Lexan, protective film, a big decal sheet and window masks complete the product.

Tekno’s monstrous new SCT410 axles

Tekno Axles

Pro-4 SC vehicles have a lot of power, and the 12mm wheel hexes that are used can strip easily if the wheel becomes loose. This results in wasted wheels and tires, and an impact on your wallet to boot. So Tekno has released these all-new SCT410 stub axles with a massive M5 thread in order to use a larger M5 serrated nut that will not come loose. This makes for a far more durable stub axle, fewer stripped nuts and less tire waste due to wheels coming loose. It’s a win, win, win!
