Fenix G56 200mm & 235mm pan cars



Posted: 01 Nov 2018 12:28 PM PDT


Fenix have introduced their new G56 1/10th pan car platform that includes 200mm World GT and 235mm Pro10 cars. Both cars are available in conventional 256mm wheelbase pivot rear suspension design or as 275mm wheelbase V-link/Quad-link variant with the latter being very popular for high-powered Pro10 cars. From default the pivot cars are usable with transversal or inline shorty packs while the V-link cars also accept standard touring car packs. Both cars share as many components as possible including the all-new front end consisting of flex-adjustable 2.5mm carbon fibre lower arms and a 2.5mm upper beam. Also the chassis can be swapped between the two versions, allowing to build a LWB pivot or SWB V-link car. The kits are available with a high-torque ball or easy-to-use gear differential – both of which rely on titanium axles for a low weight, precision and durability – and they are available from now on.

RPM X-Maxx threaded hinge pins



Posted: 01 Nov 2018 11:59 AM PDT


In response to customer demand, RPM have release a set of threaded hinge pins for the Traxxas X-Maxx monster truck. They work with stock Traxxas A-arms as well as RPM A-arms, are manufactured from stainless steel and are tough as nails. The hinge pins are 4mm x 56mm and work in the outer A-arm hinge pin location. Each kit comes with four threaded hinge pins and four M3 locknuts. The hinge pins can be used as a replacement for CEN GS025 hinge pins as well but RPM versions use a 3mm locknut instead of a 4mm version.

Schumacher release new Cougar KC & KD option parts



Posted: 01 Nov 2018 09:23 AM PDT


Schumacher have announced the release of two new Speed Secrets option parts for the Cougar KC and KD cars. Firstly a new carbon fibre chassis that is 5mm shorter than the standard carbon fibre one. Used by Schumacher’s high-level team recently, it provides the car with more overall steering and agility on tight and twisty tracks which is especially good for carpet racing.


Secondly for the KC and KD again is a conversion to fit CAT L1 rear suspension. Using this conversion will help the cars with more rear traction as converted cars finish the corner better mid to exit so drivers can accelerate harder. With the extra traction drivers can use a longer wheelbase setting while raising the rear ball stud 1mm more than normal for high grip tracks. The set includes rear arms, rear hubs, universal driveshafts and small parts.
