Martin Wollanka Joins Hot Race Tyres

wollankaa-hot-race-tyres-640x374

Hot Race Tyres have announced the signing of Austrian racer Martin Wollanka to their team. The factory XRAY racer left former long-term tyre sponsors Pro-Line right before the 2016 European Championships, and will be using Hot Race Tyres’ range of competition tyres from now on. Martin has the following to say about the deal:

“It was time to chance some things after around 10 years with Pro-Line tires, so I looked for another option. I start to test Hot Race Tyres some months ago and I was really impressive how they working fine on my XRAY car. I drove very good laptimes and constant too. I was also impressed by the always equal quality of the tires, and the quick adaptation of any condition of the track and temperatures during the races. Nicola showed the potential of its product in on road, now becoming one of the pioneers of the On Road industry, and I want to help him to show it in offroad too! I’m already know it. I’m happy to be part of the Hot Race team.”

Kurzbuch Claims 2016 Swiss 1/8th National Championship

Sitterdorf_podium-660x375

Simon Kurzbuch is already one of the world’s finest nitro R/C racers, and the current 1/8th IC Track World Champion added a dominant Swiss National 1/8th Championship to his trophy cabinet this past weekend, dominating the final round at Minidrom Sitterdorf to take five wins out of five for the season having already wrapped up the championship after Round 4.

The weather was not the best so only one dry round of qualifying could be run. Kurzbuch (Shepherd) was the fastest and securred himself the TQ in front of ARC’s Silvio Hächler. With Roland Stalder in 8th position there was another Shepherd Velox V8 in the top ten. On Sunday the weather improved so was it possible to race all the finals under dry conditions. The main final was dominated once again by Simon who crossed the finishing line in first position three laps in front of Mattia Pesenti with Remy Hasler completing the podium another two laps down. Shepherd veteran Jürg Nydegger made it to the sixth spot.

NEW PARTS: JConcepts B6/B6D Aero/Short-Chord Wing

JConcepts-B6-B6D-Aero-short-chord-wing-640x399

JConcepts have introduced new Aero “short chord” wing for the Team Associated B6 and B6D. The new Aero wing has intriguing details, a leading edge that drops below the mounting point that acts in a scooping manner. What separates the #0169 wing from the standard #0168 is the shorter deck length, otherwise known as the “chord length.” These features provide an optimum balance between steering and forward stability.

The shorter chord has less rear overhang allowing for quicker rotation in the 180 degree turns and will have less impact in gusty wind conditions or long aerial maneuvers. The center channel is just narrow enough for the B6 wing mount assembly but drops the wing at just the correct height and position. The side-dams feature large openings for tire clearance and expansion.

An innovative forward gurney option gives drivers an adjustment that previously hasn’t been available in the class. Clipped rear corners help minimize flex breakage which is so common on 1/10th off-road racing machines. The wing cut-lines are unmistakable JConcepts, highlighted by the now standard, front corner angle. The joint wing assembly includes two wing pieces in each package for added value.
