Atsushi Hara running the Kyosho TKI3 as a privateer rather showing up the TKI4s
Asia’s most prestigious sanctioned event is well underway in Johor Bahru, Malaysia with an entry capped event it is a Kyosho 1,2,3 that tops the standings after three of seven rounds of qualifying, with Japanese driver Wataru Takashiro showing the fastest outright pace but crashing, Dani Choi just missing out on Q3 by three hundredths of a second from Hara – showing that part of the world that he’s still got the skills despite a field that is missing some of the top names, in particular Team Associated’s Kyle McBride as well as fellow Aussie talents Zac Ryan, Craig Laughton, Aaron Stringer to name a few.
Feedback from drivers hasn’t been glowing with general critique of the track; not the most fun layout, jumps breaking up, narrow lanes multi surface including carpet and v.slippery bricks which some have likened to ice skating, whilst Wataru from Japan, the home of drifting is the most at home on the bricks driving full punch. Huge amounts of the tracktime on offer with 7 rounds of quali in total as well as practice yesterday and finals to come.
6MIK have announced the release of the flywheel holder/wheel nut tool and serrated 17mm wheel nuts for 1/8 buggy & truggy. CNC-machined from aluminium, the lightweight design ensures the tool is super light while still ergonomic for comfortable holding and maximum grip. The 17mm tool socket can be mounted onto the center (nut screwing is faster) or de-centered to provide more strength. The Flywheel Holder works with all RC nitro car flywheels with 2, 3, and 4-pin designs. Interestingly, the tool has a special O-Ring system maintains the nut inside the tool for faster wheel change. A hole on the handle allows to put one additional 6MIK nut.
Coming soon from Yokomo are the new aluminum offset rear hub carriers for YZ-2CA and YZ-4. This is intended for the variable set up for upper arm by replacement for several kind of track surface. In use of shorter universal at axel part, enable to get more smooth suspension trace for stable drive in any type of surface. In high grip surface, reducing the chance of high side and higher cornering speed. For the case of low grip surface smooth acceleration control for stable cornering performance. Shipped on May 30th.
Hobbywing have introduced the new XeRun 4274 G2 and 4268 SD G2 1/8 brushless motors. These brushless motors are the first motors (in the world) with a built-in chip which helps ESC identify if it’s a Hobbywing motor (when pairing with XERUN XR8/XR8 Plus) and form a power system which can work in the “Full-Sensored” mode and provide users with the better performance and smoother control. They are also designed with the Turbo Timing Technology, a technology widely adopted in 1/10th scale on-road racing and can be enabled for unleash the power of the motor (when pairing the motor with HW XERUN XR8 series of ESCs) and the bi-directional adjustable mechanical timing for meet the different power demands of various applications. Other features are also present like the Advanced Hall Sensing System, the first “error-free” Hall sensing system (Hobbywing’s patent) adopted by this motor to guarantee users the steady operation in the “Full-Sensored” mode. A separate high-speed high precision encoder always output the clean signals (indicate the rotor’s location) and not be affected by other signal interference. The XeRun 4274 G2 and 4268 SD G2 are likewise the first motors that adopt the innovative 4-pole-8-magnet “staggered pole” rotor (Hobbywing-patented design) which has the extremely low cogging effect and low torque pulsation (it’s reduced by 85% when comparing with traditional 1/8 motors).
