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…

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.

Pro-Line engineers have emerged from the R&D lab with a new tread design to unleash to the World: the Electron Short Course Tire. The Electron tread has been a proven success on the buggy platforms, and is now available for short course racers. The Electron shares close family ties with Pro-Line’s popular ION tire with the iconic dirt grabbing center tread and futuristic styling. The Electron features connected tire tread technology to improve traction and wear on even the most abrasive of indoor track conditions. The square center pins laid out between the connected tread provide consistent forward and side bite even when the track gets dusty.

After extensive testing and support from our customers we have designed a new rear hinge pin brace that produces a lower roll center to improve traction and stability in all conditions. The new brace allows vehicles to square up better coming out of corners and provides easier on-off-power transitions. It is compatible with all of our 1/8th scale vehicles as well as the SCT410. CNC manufactured from 7075 aluminum and gun metal anodized for wear.
- Lower the rear roll center by 1.0mm for added traction and stability in and out of corners in all conditions.
- Additional 1.0 degrees of rear toe-in compared to the stock part (TKR 5013).
- More rear toe will improve forward bite on-power and increase rotation off-power.
