JC Racing Products from the UK have introduced their new finned wing brace for 1/8th buggy wings. 3-D-printed using a high-quality fibre-reinforced material, the wing brace incorporates connected wing buttons for convenient mounting with a centre fin not only looking cool but also helping with aerodynamics. The brace can be produced to fit most wings and 1/8th off-road kits.
JConcepts have released a first teaser image of their forthcoming all-new Finnisher body shell for the Losi Mini-T 2.0 mini-size 2WD stadium truck. We bring you more details on the nifty little truck body once we receive the official press release.
Xray have introduced the latest incarnation of their highly successful XB8 1/8th scale nitro buggy platform, the XB8 2020. This year’s variant of the company’s IFMAR vice World Championship and EFRA European Championship winning buggy features some subtle updates and improvements that still target pretty much every aspect of the buggy, be it the chassis, drivertain or suspension. And so the 2020 variant builds on a redesigned 3mm 7075-T6 aluminium chassis that is 4mm longer for improved overall stability while the included hard composite radio box increases chassis rigidity and handling consistency. The harder composite material also retains its stiffness in very high temperature conditions.
Maclan Racing have announced the addition of US off-road frontrunner, Brandon Rose to their factory team. Brandon has been showing his talent in 1/8th racing and he will be using Maclan Racing’s MMax 8 ESC and MR8.3 motors in his 2020 program.
Coming from Pro-Line and made for the Arrma Kraton 8S monster truck are the new pre-cut Brute polycarbonate and Bash Armour body shells. The Brute is Pro-Line’s take on a modern truck and features a bold grill with eye-pleasing body lines sure to turn heads at the local bash spot. This body has been specifically designed to fit the unique shape of the Kraton 8S while allowing to add a custom paint job to the truck when using the clear polycarbonate version. Window masks, detailed decal sheet and paint then peel over-spray film are all included.
Xray have announced the release of their new IFMAR-legal rear wing for the XB8 and XT8 off-road vehicles. The stylish rear wing was designed to provide the appropriate amount of downforce and generate required stability for the car. Made from a strong special composite mixture, the wing will survive severe abusive and extreme crashes while keeping its shape. Taller sides plates improve high speed stability, meet IFMAR rules and the wing is available in black, white or fluorescent yellow colour.
Pro-Line have introduced their new Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited Rubicon body shell for 313mm wheelbase trail trucks. The rugged, tough and soon to be classic styling features an all-new rear tail-light and tail-gate design, bigger windows for better visibility, higher clearance fenders to allow for bigger tyres and new hood details that all come together to give owners a better rock crawling experience. The body fits most 313mm chassis and it comes clear, including window masks and a decal sheet.
Made for the Traxxas Slash 2WD and 4×4 short course trucks are Pro-Line’s new Raid 2.2”/3.0” removable hex wheels. The wheels feature a new 6×30 removable hex system and include a pair of 12mm Slash 4×4 Front/Rear (Slash 2W rear) hexes and a pair of 12mm Slash 2WD front hexes that fit the most popular trucks. Optional 14mm, 17mm and ProTrac offset 12mm hexes are available separately to fit the driver’s exact application. If the wheel hex ever gets damaged, it can easily be replaced without needing to replace the glued tyres. The Raid wheels feature a detailed 10-spoke design that recreates the latest in high-performance full-size forged racing wheels with the strength and durability to match the bold look. Moulded-in bead-loc detail only adds to the realism.
