Coming from Yeah Racing and made for the Tamiya TT02 is the Aluminium Essential Conversion Kit. Including a load of blue anodised aluminium option parts such as front and rear lower arms, a front steering knuckle set, a ball-raced steering assembly, rear hubs, as well as steel diff outdrives and CV-style driveshafts the set replaces many of the original plastic components with more durable and more precise metal parts. With the stronger parts the on-track performance of Tamiya’s entry-level car can be boosted while it also allows to run faster motors.

New from Team C comes a stylish “Tamiya-style” cross wrench incorporating four different size nut wrenches. Offering a 4mm, 5mm, 5.5mm and 7mm nut driver the wrench covers most 1/12th and 1/10th as well as many 1/8th applications. More durable than common cast cross wrenches and also way better looking the all-in-one wrench helps to slim down your tool package.

Capricorn have a new Tesla .21 nitro on-road engine available. Offering a 9-port design the Max Fantini tuned engine offers the exact same specifications as the one used by Dario Balestri to grab the TQ and finally the runner-up spot at opening round of the 2015 ENS and thus it sports a 16.85mm stroke and a dual-balanced crankshaft.

Italian company Blacktarmac introduce the LSS Ver. 2.0 on-road shock absorbers. The updated version sports a long list of features such as different length aluminium shock bodies including double O-ring short-type bodies, teflon bushings for improved sealing, high-precision 2 to 8-hole 1.1mm pistons, new piston screws, super smooth piston rods as well as new laser-etched spring preload nuts for easier and more intuitive shock adjustment. The shocks are available in four different sizes including 56.3mm, 57.9mm, 60.3mm and 65.5mm variants as well as complete sets for kits such as the Xray NT1 2015 and RX8, the Shepherd Velox V10 Pro and V8 Pro, Capricorn Lab C03 and C892 as well as the Mugen MTX6 and MRX5. There is also a set specifically for Yokomo’s DB7 electric touring car.

Yokomo have introduced their latest Drift Package set, the GReddy R35 Spec-D. Building on a proven shaft-drive 4WD drift car chassis with double wishbone suspension, front and rear solid axles, universal front driveshafts and adjustable shock absorbers with moulded shock bodies the car is ready for some serious drift action right out of the box. Included with the rolling chassis comes a Nissan GTR bodyshell with numerous drift-specific aerodynamic details. A suitable Running Set, including a 2.4GHz radio system, steering servo, motor, speed controller and charger is available separately.

Teamsaxo have released first renderings of their forthcoming GT-300W 1/12th scale pan car kit. Based on a 2.5mm carbon fibre main chassis the car will feature a widely adjustable front end with alloy mounting brackets for the front lower A-arms, a single bellcrank steering assembly and a rear link-type suspension with dual roll dampers and a large volume centre shock. By the look of things the car accepts transversal battery layouts only and it should become available shortly.

Tailor-made for Tekno RC’s NT48 1/8th scale nitro truggy is Pro-Line’ latest Enforcer-seried bodyshell. From the mind of Ty Tessmann and inspired from the success of the Type-R buggy body, the Enforcer has a meaner and more angular front end look with swooping roof and bed sections for improved airflow and high-speed stability. The hood of the body is steeper to create more downforce over the front wheels for more steering and faster lap times. On top of that the body is meant to be more durable than the kit body, allowing you to hit the track harder. As usual the body comes made from high-quality clear Lexan material and including window masks and decal sheets.

Pro-Line have introduced 1/10th buggy versions of their Pro-Spec high-performance shock absorbers. Previously only available for 1/10th short course trucks the shock Pro-Spec dampers now also come for today’s most popular buggies. They are of a 12mm Big Bore design with a single low friction X-ring seal while the pistons and shaft guides are made from smooth white Delrin for low stiction. The threaded aluminium bodies house 3.5mm thick shock shafts with hard chrome coating, just like full scale racing shocks. The shocks also feature an easy access bleeder cap screw for consistent shock builds every time and each pair includes three different piston options of 1.4, 1.6 and 1.8 sizes as well as a blank piston for drilling to a custom size. Custom shock tightening tools and optional shock limiters are also included. The dampers accept most 12mm big bore buggy springs and included are also several upper and lower shock pivot balls as well as optional +2, +4 and +6mm spring perches to fit a wider range of vehicles right out of the box. Coming as separate front and rear sets the shocks are known to fit the Team Associated B5, B5M and B44.3, the Kyosho RB6 and ZX-6, the TLR 22 2.0 and 22-4 as well as the Yokomo B-Max2 and B-Max4.

Japanese company GForce introduce the Multi Warming System for Mini-Z-sized mini and micro cars. The system consists of a compact main unit with LC display and a dial for the menu operation and it is powered by 11 to 18VDC input. The included set of alloy cups for the tyres offers individual temperature sensors and 26.4mm reducers to adapt the system to a range of tyre diameters. The unit offers a temperature range of 20°C up to 100°C (68°F-212°F) and a 30 minute safety timer prevents the tyres from becoming cooked.
