Schumacher Cougar Laydown alloy diff conversion

Coming from Schumacher and made for their Cougar Laydown, KD, KR and SV2 kits is an aluminium diff conversion. The alloy case gives super precision and strength and has a larger oil volume for more consistency during a run while also helping with temperate management. The main large shim also thicker for more reliability. The conversion includes all parts necessary and the externals are also available separately so drivers can use donor parts from their current diff.

Ruddog Distribution have introduced their new Tire Glue line of CA super glues. Available as thin and medium viscosity variants the glues are ideal to securely bond on-road and off-road rubber tyres to their wheels with the thin variant being ideal to let the glue flow into even the smallest of gaps while the medium variant is also usable to seal tyre sidewalls in order to counter traction rolling. Both glues come in 20g bottles and they include angled glue tips to make application even more convenient.

Available as standard, read: more flexible variant and also in full-face High Traction specification, both chassis will improve the car’s handling in medium to high-bite traction conditions with the heavier machined chassis being ideal for medium grip tracks due to increased torsional flex while the solid surface High Traction variant is best used in high to ultra high traction conditions. Both come with a hard-anodised surface coating and they are available separately or including a 2-piece set of snuggly fitting screw-on front brass weights.

Exotek Stuttgart 225mm M-class body shell

Exotek have introduced their new Stuttgart 225mm wheelbase M-class body shell for modern MTC 4WD touring cars. The Super Car body features wide body fenders, an aggressive front splitter, low side skirts, lowered stance and the unmistakable Japanese tuning style double wings, producing incredible handling in a lightweight, low LCG package while doing it in style. The body is of 225mm wheelbase, 176mm width specification and moulded from premium, heavy duty yet lightweight polycarbonate. It includes M3 hardware, a double wing set, vinyl masks, high gloss stickers and an instruction sheet. Due to its low hood it fits over modern mini chassis with no problem but may be too low for older Tamiya front motor minis.

Trinity White Carbon SlimStick LiPo batteries

Trinity have announced the release of their new SlimStick White Carbon LiPo battery range. The new super narrow batteries comes in handy especially when running mid motor touring cars where the reduced width makes for better left/right chassis balance while offering an overall lower weight. Like the LCG the SlimStick is another perfect option for weight placement, and can improve the handling of touring cars especially with corner speed. Two different specifications are available a 6000mAh 7.4V (139x38x25mm/240g) variant and a 5500mAh pack (139x38x25mm/237g). Both are built using high-quality 100C cells and they utilise 5mm bullet-style connectors.

More Awesomatix A12 prototype images

Awesomatix have released more images of their A12 dubbed 1/12th scale project that hit the light of the day just days prior to last week’s 2020 IFMAR 1/12th scale World Championship. The pan car is of a pretty radical design with the main chassis having received a V-shape with the rear power pod obviously being attached directly to the “ears” of the V, doing away with traditional pitch and roll dampers. Machined aluminium braces on both sides of the chassis seem to allow the limiting of suspension travel while the front end is also of a somewhat unusual design with large diameter king pins and a construction that seems to allow for stepless spring preload and ground clearance adjustment. The car is still in prototype stages with the said vehicle having allowed Awesomatix’s team manager, Max Mächler to finish 5th in the Stock class A-main while Freddy Südhoff achieved a fine 18th place overall in the Modified class, leading a field of four A12s in Modified. The guys of Awesomatix will now sit down to evaluate the collected data and to refine and finalise the design.
