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 The S2 design, originally made popular for the 1/10th off-road crowd, had a lot of influence over this design.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

Schelle B64/B64D Nova Slipper Clutch Kits

Schelle Nova Slipper Clutch Kits for Team Associated B64 and B64D RC Buggies
Schelle Racing just announced that they’re taking pre-orders for the new Nova Slipper Clutch Kits for the Team Associated B64D and B64 RC buggies! The Nova Slipper Clutch is the ultimate 3-plate clutch that has better driving feel, lasts longer, and has a lower rotating inertia compared to kit slipper clutches from the major manufacturers. Weight is just 12.0 grams for the entire Nova Slipper Clutch assembly using the included 78 tooth spur gear. Schelle Chief Engineer Kurt Wenger created a 3-plate design which solves all of the problems racers are having with kit slipper clutches that degrade and lock-up. In addition, it is smaller and weighs less making it the ideal slipper clutch for stock racers. The Nova Slipper Clutch has 20% more torque capacity in a compact package that helps you put more power to the ground and lasts longer between rebuilds. The other benefit of the Nova over other brands is that Nova sets include 2 slipper pads of each material we offer and a tuning guide to help racers learn how to tune the clutch for different conditions from slick to astro-turf. The Schelle Nova B64/B64D Slipper Clutch Kits are expected to go on sale next week. Read more…
