JConcepts RC10T Team truck body

JConcepts have announced the release of their Team Associated RC10T Team truck body. When Team Associated decided to pull the trigger and build a 1/10th Stadium truck, they went all-the-way. In the process, a class was ignited and the RC10T was born. One of the most sought-after looks in the vintage RC community is the look of a stadium truck from the 1990’s and racers love the 10T. There might have been no better look than the RC10T and RC10GT during the golden age of stadium truck and the body design had a lot to do with it. JConcepts, with approval from Team Associated, have reintroduced the genuine RC10T Team Truck body shell to the masses. This allows the faithful to recreate, rebuild and race with authentically styled bodies from the heyday of competitive stadium truck racing. A lot of work went into making this project a reality and thankfully, Team Associated preserved the iconic mould from the 1993 calendar year. JConcepts was able to restore older generation construction and with a blend of today’s materials, the RC10T body is back out on the market. Everyone knows the iconic style, the front hood-scoop which is forged over the front shock geometry along with dead-panned front headlights and grille. The neutral cab design with built-in number plates and roll-bar stand-out which gave enthusiasts their first memory of racing stadium trucks. The quarter round wheel well flares added a bit of realism to the design while the lengthy rear spoiler provided some much-needed rear downforce for slippery race conditions. The body comes with window masks but no decal sheet.

Ultimate Racing – M3X V2.0 CERAMIC nitro off road engine

Ultimate Racing – M3X V2.0 CERAMIC nitro off road engine.

Modelix Racing ha presentato il nuovo motore nitro off road 3,5 cc Ultimate Racing M3X V2.0. Come il suo predecessore M3X, il V2.0 è un tre luci realizzato dal prestigioso marchio giapponese O.S. Engines ed è basato sul motore corsa quadra Speed B21 Ty Tessmann edition II.
Il motore M3X V2.0 è stato appositamente progettato per ottenere massime prestazioni, minor consumi e facilità di messa a punto.
L’albero motore è quello B2101 progettato per garantire un flusso ottimale di carburante grazie al design aerodinamico e al riempimento in silicone per aumentare la potenza a bassi regimi.
A differenza del precedente M3X, il V2.0 viene fornito con il carburatore 21 J3. Il porta spillo del massimo è stato riprogettato per un miglior raffreddamento del flusso di carburante nel carburatore, garantendo grande stabilità al minimo, migliorando il consumo di carburante e le prestazioni complessive del motore. Anche l’uniball per il leverismo del gas è stato modificato con due grani di fissaggio anziché uno in modo da poter regolare più facilmente l’angolazione del giunto uniball senza dover smontare il motore. Il venturi è in alluminio da 6,5 mm.
In linea con l’alta qualità e le prestazioni di questo motore, i suoi due cuscinetti di alta precisione realizzati in Giappone assicurano elevata stabilità al minimo, maggiore durata e basso attrito alle alte temperature. Il cuscinetto anteriore è con sfere in acciaio mentre quello posteriore è con sfere in ceramica.
Il tappo carter posteriore è realizzato in alluminio svizzero 7075-T6 lavorato CNC. È fresato per migliorare il flusso di miscela diretto al pistone e, grazie al suo nuovo design, è possibile rimuovere biella e pistone anche quando quest’ultimo si trova al punto morto inferiore. Le scanalature laterali consentono di rimuovere facilmente il tappo carter posteriore senza dover utilizzare alcun attrezzo che possa danneggiarlo.
La testa di raffreddamento è stata ridisegnata da Modelix. Non è bassa come quella del B2102 ma è più leggera quindi il baricentro resta basso come il B2102 ma la capacità di raffreddamento è migliore. Ulterior informazioni ed immagini sono disponibili cliccando QUI.
