TLR 22 4.0 Spec Racer Buggy Kit

TLR 22 4.0 Spec Racer Buggy KitThe 17.5 buggy spec-class is the biggest class in electric off-road racing and perhaps all of RC today. A fully optimized buggy with a specific focus on stock racing is required to be competitive at the top end of the category, and the TLR22 4.0 Spec Racer delivers such a buggy, right out of the box. The 22 4.0 Spec Racer kit takes the drastic improvements made in the on-track performance of the new 22 4.0 and maximized the drivetrain for spec racing. Sounds simple, right? NO! That’s because our goal was to turn the weight loss requirement into a performance gain opportunity. For starters, the car has shed weight by replacing carefully chosen stock 22 4.0 parts. The transmission boast the biggest gains where a Direct Drive System with a shortened top shaft, an aluminum diff with composite outdrives and aluminum CVA driveshafts with lightened steel axles has minimized overall weight and rotating mass.

RDRP Team Associated B64 Brass Suspension Mounts

RDRP Team Associated B64 Brass Suspension MountsRevolution Design Racing Products continues to roll out their line of B64 upgrades. The new RDRP Brass Suspension Mounts for the Team Associated B64 RC buggies are a direct replacement for the kit’s lightweight parts. They add valuable weight especially when running in high-traction conditions or when the track is getting bumpier. Machined from black-coated brass and sporting gold color chamfered edges the parts weigh in at 14g for the A LRC mount, 13g for the B LRC mount, 14g for the C mount and 15g for the D mount which shifts the weight bias further to the front or rear of the buggy, depending on the location of the brass hangers. Using the front A and B brass mounts will result in an easier to drive buggy while the rear C and D mounts add traction out of and rotation into corners. Using the brass suspension mounts all-round will add valuable weight when running on very bumpy and/or grippy tracks. All mounts were designed to work with the original #92014 arm mount inserts and they are best used in pairs at the front or the rear. Read more…

JConcepts TLR 8IGHT-E 4.0 S2 Body

JConcepts TLR 8IGHT-E 4.0 S2 Body Upgrade
It was time to turn the page on some design aspects and stylize the TLR 8ight-E 4.0 with a completely new design. The S2 design, originally made popular for the 1/10th off-road crowd, had a lot of influence over this design. In a chat with chief drivers JR Mitch, Tyler Jones and Reno Savoya, the S2 was suddenly born. Starting a project like this is not an easy task, the drivers are demanding. Make it “cool looking,” “more radical” and it needs to perform just as well as it looks is typically the feedback delivered to the design team during these projects. Set constraints require the body to clear certain fixed items in the chassis and allow the new features to guide and control the performance. The S2 is perhaps the lowest and most muscular JConcepts body ever produced. Read more…

Traxxas TRX-4 Pre-Painted and Clear Bodies

Traxxas TRX-4 Pre-Painted Red Land Rover Defender Body
Traxxas recently unveiled three new replacement bodies for the TRX-4 scale crawler. The Land Rover Defender bodies are available pre-painted in red or silver, as well as a clear version that allows you to paint it however you’d like. All three bodies include a full decal sheet with window masks. Sadly, the pre-painted bodies already have their windows painted over so they’ll need to be covered with black decals. So, if you’d like the windows to be clear like a real truck, you’ll need to paint your own. Read more…
