Coming soon from Futaba is the 3PV 3+1 channel radio system. The newly designed intermediate-level transmitter features T-FHSS transmitting technology, built-in telemetry functions, several mix settings for steering and throttle, gyro adjustment for supported gyros, as well as locking brake and several other software gizmos. Other features include a large display, digital trims and 10 model memory. The transmitter is usable with T-FHSS, S-FHSS and FHSS receivers, and it will become available with a range of 4-channel or 3-channel receivers.

Italian company Bittydesign have introduced their all-new Type-6C 1/10th scale bodyshell for formula cars. Offering a realistic yet performance oriented design the body is meant to have a neutral handling, exceptional overall downforce and its rear section makes for optimised airflow towards the rear wing while allowing room for the motor and motor pod at the same time. The body comes moulded from lightweight 0.75mm Lexan material, it includes a white colour driver helmet, a pre-cut decal sheet and it fits most of today’s formula chassis and low front wings.

U.S. company Triton have released a first teaser image of their forthcoming L3 .21 off-road engine. No details on the specifications are available yet but given the name and judging from the slightly simpler cooling head design compared to the company’s L4 Pro Spec and L5 Pro Spec engines the L3 could be a club level engine with a lower price tag than the Pro Spec variants.

Xtreme Aerodynamics have introduce two all-new variants of their R18 1/8th on-road body platform in the form of the R18 Evo and the R18 Flat. Featuring similar rear end designs the two bodies differ by the front end aerodynamics with the Evo being meant to offer more steering thanks to the protruding “nose” section in the front, while the Flat type generates very high downforce with its simpler but effective design. Both bodies are available in light and ultra light versions, either uncut or precisely pre-cut for a number of cars.

Ielasi Tuned have introduced their all-new .21 Rally engines in the form of the 9CL and the 7CL. The 9 and 7-port long stroke engines both feature new cooling heads with Ielasi Tuned logos, rear ceramic bearings, new design conrods and they are hand-modified by Daniele Ielasi himself. The EFRA-legal engines complement the IFMAR-legal 5CL GT Rally and they become available very soon.

Following a first teaser Serpent have now released full details on the new Cobra GT 1/8th on-road kits. Coming as nitro and electric variant both feature new front and rear aluminium suspension mounts to optimise the suspension geometry by making for flatter A-arm angles which suits on-road racing better. The kits also include 6 degree aluminium C-hubs and rear uprights to further improve the suspension package while new aluminium shock absorber risers allow for optimised shock angles to further up the on-track performance. The suspension package is rounded out by a set of redesigned 4.5mm carbon fibre shock towers.

Protoform have introduced their highly awaited LTC 2.0 190mm touring car bodyshell. The next generation of the ultra-successful, but 8 years old LTC-R offers an updated front fascia design with a large, striking front grille for looks while on the functionality side of things, deeper headlight recesses have proven on the track to create more steering and downforce, increasing rotation and change of direction. At the rear of the body, the lower fenders are redesigned to be stiffer and less prone to body tucks. Included is Protoform’s popular wing design first seen on the Pro-TC kit and Dodge Dart, now featuring two trim lines for tuning to a specific class or track condition. Another feature of the body are mounting marks inside the scrap Lexan in the front wheel wells. Mounting positions are marked for 0 (neutral), +2mm, +4mm and +6mm to allow for easy body positioning, a feature widely used by both pros and club racers. As a rule of thumb; the more forward the race body is mounted, the more aggressive the handling will feel. The LTC 2.0 complies with the Global Body Spec rules, it is fully EFRA and ROAR approved and comes in regular .030″ and lightweight .025″ variants.
