Posted: 02 Nov 2018 09:00 AM PDT


The opening round of the HIT Series was held in Holesov, Czech Republic last weekend. The event was held in several electric off-road classes and in Touring Modified it was Matej Sulc who lead the way from Kuba Simurda and Karel Kratochvil. The finals didn’t change anything as Matej won all three finals for the win in front of Kuba Simurda and Karel Kratochvil.


Karel Kratochvil was the man to beat in the Touring Stock class as he left everyone behind with the TQ and win in front of Ales Pelikán and Matej Babovsky. Radek Cernohous and Ivo Gombik completed the top 5.


Lukas Hoch again was in a league of his own in the Formula class. Svetlin Douhlevski came in 2nd, however he would loose an average of ten seconds on Lukas in each run. Ladislav Holasek completed the podium in 3rd.

JConcepts Dragon wheels Tracker wheel discs



Posted: 02 Nov 2018 06:30 AM PDT


JConcepts have introduced their new Tracker wheel discs for the Dragon Mega Truck wheels. The Tracker wheel discs are replacement options for the Dragon wheel sets to provide a new look or to simply change the colour scheme to existing wheels. Inspired from Weston Anderson’s Bog Hog, the Trackers sport a burly, angular steel-like build similar to versions utilised on the real deal. The injection-moulded, 2-piece design item, features a full-face that covers the wheel and is secured from the inside-out. The Tracker set is unique and includes a cover for the wheel nut that creatively interlocks with the disc to create a completely closed off mega truck look. Available in multiple colours, the disc set includes four disc pieces, four wheel nut covers and hardware to make the installation to a #3379 Dragon wheel set.

SMJ introduce new TC spring & accessories



Posted: 02 Nov 2018 04:40 AM PDT


Japanese brand Speedmaster Japan have introduced their new progressive T2.5-2.8 1/10th electric touring car spring as well as a range of accessories. Starting with the spring, the T2.5-2.8 adds to SMJ’s existing Stealth line of springs and it is made of 1.4mm diameter wire. The total length is 20mm meaning it can be used with most of today’s ultra short shock absorbers.


As for the accessories, SMJ have announced the release of a 20-piece pack of carburettor return rubber bands. A common sight in nitro racing the rubber bands are wrapped around the needle housing and carburettor ball joint and doing so will ensure the carburettor closes and brings the engine to its idle setting in the event of signal loss or battery failure. The set contains ten grey and black rubber bands each, ensuring a stealthy look compared to the more common red or orange bands available in grocery stores. Also new is an 8-piece set of foam-clad patches for 6mm body mount posts. The patched will both reinforce body shell mounting holes while also reducing vibrations. The foams are made using an 0.3mm patch and a 2mm foam strip.
