Available soon from GForce is the Fujin brushless motor for drift cars. Being of quite an unconventional design with front mounted soldering terminals, the motor also features a high airflow can, internal fan unit and a special sound plate in the try to recreate the sound of a turbo charged full-scale engine. The rebuildable motor is available in 8.5T and 10.5T specification, features adjustable timing, ball bearings, and will become available by the beginning of May.

Serpent have released first images of the Natrix 748 200mm nitro on-road kit. The follow-up model of the successful 747 is designed with the input of Serpent’s factory team drivers such as Mark Green and the Sahashi brothers in order to create a platform that works for club and high-level racers alike. Therefore the kit comes with redesigned differentials that sport new housings and internals, repositioned ball-raced anti-roll bars, lightened rear brake and 2-speed shaft holders, a redesigned fuel tank that makes for a lower centre of gravity and new servo mounts with a more centralised position. A new chassis plate with a more backward mounted engine helps to optimise the weight balance while a new steering block design, taken over from the 977, allows for a leading or trailing position and adjustable kingpin inclination. Both the front and rear hubs are designed for the use with aero discs and the carbon fibre radio plate offers a wide range of flex adjustments. The Natrix 748, that is visible with white 3D printed prototype parts here, will be ready for a release around mid-May.

Muchmore introduce the Power Station Pro multi distributor. The box multiplies the available outputs of power supplies and offers three switched and one non-switched output as well as two 5V/2A USB charging ports for mobile devices. Available in two colours, black and blue, the box is usable with 4mm banana and alligator clips alike as it offers a pair of holes next to each connector tube for secure fixing of the alligator clips.

SkyRC introduce the Toro 1S120 brushless speed controller for all racing classes that use 1S LiPo batteries. The speedo features a built-in DC booster to do away with the need to run a 2S receiver battery while an internal capacitor module replaces the external capacitor board. The controller has a 3.5T motor limit, features a 6V/3A BEC system, a built-in on/off switch and an easy access programming socket. The large array of software features including boost and turbo functions is adjustable using SkyRC’s own PC interface or an optional programming box.

Tuning Haus introduce their new range of precision aluminium 64 pitch pinions. Manufactured from premium aluminium alloy, the gears are checked, hard anodised in a gunmetal finish and laser-etched for easy identification. The pinions are available in 20T to 70T sizes and are ideal for stock and modified on-road as well as stock off-road racing.

Tamiyablog have first images of two new Tamiya kits available in the form of the TRF201XMW and the Rock Socker. Starting with the TRF201XMW, the 2WD buggy was introduced last year as a conversion kit for the TRF201 rear motor buggy and it is understood that the XMW will be a full kit rather than just a chassis and gearbox conversion. The XMW will feature a new long wheelbase 3mm aluminium chassis extending the wheelbase to 284mm, the gearbox will still be an all-aluminium affair that allows to use a ball or gear differential and the shock absorber upper caps incorporate a bleeding screw. The kit is set for a late May release.

Speedzone have a new Peerless Series LiPo battery pack available in the form of a 6000mAh 80C 2S square pack. The battery measures 93×68.5×25.1mm and is a substitute option to saddle packs as it sports the same dimensions as a side-by-side 2S saddle pack but does away with the fiddly jumper wire. The battery comes with 4mm connections and shrink-wrapped for added protection.

Fantom Racing now have their latest 6000mAh 80C LiPo battery pack available. The ROAR-legal Pro Racing series pack is built using the latest 80C cells and comes in a protective hardcase and with 4mm connection tubes. Beside the “bullet-type” variant Fantom also offers two pre-wired packs with Deans and Traxxas style plugs.

MIP introduce the wrench wraps, a simple solution to colour-code different size wrenches. Available for 0.9mm to 3.0mm and .050″ to 1/8″ tools, the stickers are of different colours and clearly sport the respective size to mark MIP’s own line of tools. To colour code the wrenches simply wrap the sticker around the tool shaft and protect it using the included transparent shrink tube. Beside being available separately there also come two sets including the most used metric or imperial sizes.
