3DGY Designs have introduced 3D printed spur gear cover for the Team Associated RC10B6 laydown transmission, designed by Mike Gay. Typically on laydown transmission 1/10 buggies, the body also acts as a spur gear cover. However the rear cutout of the body leaves the spur gear very exposed. If you race on dirt or clay the majority of dust collects around the rear end of the car near the transmission. If you race on carpet or astro the dust & carpet fibers/strings can wrap on to any moving part, also around the transmission. This gear cover for the B6 laydown transmission is intended to help guard the spur and slipper clutch from debris, as well as protect the body from contacting the spur gear.
Protects the spur gear from hitting the body. This also helps in aligning the slipper shaft to properly mate through the body.
Protects the spur gear from debris (dirt, dust, carpet fibers, etc) by guarding the rear of the spur gear, which is normally very exposed by the body.
Fits up to an 81 tooth spur gear.
Mounts directly to the transmission with no modifications.
Two M3x20mm BHS stainless steel screws are supplied for direct install.
As our LIVE coverage gets underway of the EFRA 1/10th Off-Road Euros, it would make sense to talk a bit about 1/10 Off-Road Buggies, correct? Well appropriately, PR Racing have announced details of their latest 1/10th Buggy, the PRS1 V3. PR Racing have been working on a new 2wd buggy platform based on their V3 design that which is optimized for medium to low grip tracks such as dirt and wet astroturf. The new V3 (MM) buggy will showcase a 3 gear Mid Motor transmission. The battery placement on the new V3 (MM) chassis design will offer both vertical and horizontal placement which helps give versatility and gives the driver the chance to find the best possible weight distribution for their application.
Their team of distributors and racers worldwide have been showing the quality of the products at the track, with exceptional race results, for some time now and they are excited to release the next generation of competition off road model car for today’s serious R/C Racing enthusiast. Below are the specifications of the new PRS1 V3 (MM) buggy which will be coming soon to PR Racing.
Team Losi Racing have introduced the new evolution of their ever-popular TEN-SCTE platform, with the new TEN-SCTE 3.0 4WD SCT Race kit. TLR engineers started with the championship-winning 2.0 and refined its suspension geometry to be optimised for all track conditions. These refinements also make the truck easier to drive. Other changes include centre driveline adjustability and the inclusion of parts that were considered optional on the SCTE 2.0 kit.
The TEN-SCTE platform’s extensive list of race wins includes the ROAR Nationals, the Cactus Classic and a multitude of other major events. The TEN-SCTE 3.0 kit builds on this heritage by giving racers yet another superbly engineered SCT that can put them on the top of the podium.
The features list on this machine is STAGGERING, so here it is in full!
Well, 1993 was an interesting year wasn’t it? Jurassic Park was breaking all the records in the movie theater while Whitney Houston and Dr. Dre were dishing out the latest Billboard hits on the music scene – while on the flipside, Nirvana was leading the charge for the grunge movement. All of this while I was only one years old…blimey, that’s a while back.
However, in the truck world, Ford was on the verge of creating a classic of their own, the 1993 Ford F-250. JConcepts is quick to offer this officially licensed mainstay to the scale world of radio control.
The bed itself is solid and includes slated details to look like its 1:1 counterpart. Light body lines and raised sections are present throughout such as fuel tank latch, window weather strip outlines and hood indentations. The hard body-line positioned front to back give the truck heart and the “Built Ford Tough” personality. The body comes clear and includes an authentic decal sheet and easy to use window mask for the detailed hobbyist. The F-250 drops on the Ascender and Axial 12.5” wheelbase setting, with standard body mounts.
· Officially licensed by Ford to JConcepts
· Body measures 12.5” wheelbase
· Overall body length measures 19.75”
· Fits a variety of 1.9” Trail | scale trucks
· Scale inspired body, cab and window design

In a busy month for RC Racing TV, we’re heading into an off-road double-header this weekend in France and Spain, so let’s kick off this week by looking at some great off-road RC cars and gear hitting the market; none with more presence than this, Axial’s SMT10 RTR Truck based on the famous ‘Grave Digger’ monster truck from the USA!
Over the past decade, Axial has been synonymous with crawlers and the scale trail community for creating vehicles that inspire endless adventure and creative freedom. Something interesting started to evolve and a trend began to appear, 4WD straight axle Monster Trucks. What’s usually the first thought that comes to mind when someone mentions Monster Jam? Grave Digger – who is sitting right up on top! The iconic black, purple, and green graveyard themed paint job has been haunting and thrilling fans for over 30 years. Axial went all out when designing the chassis and roll cage for the SMT10™ Grave Digger Monster Jam Truck. Very similar to modern era full size monster trucks, this chassis was developed for maximum strength and an extremely detailed appearance. Not to mention, it’s the first true-to-scale 4WD straight axle Monster Jam Truck available on the market today!
It’s Finals Day at the EFRA 1/5th TC Euros, and we are going to crown a new European Champion – so join us on RC Racing TV for LIVE coverage of every session and every great battle for position on track!
New from Reedy is the Blackbox 1000Z+ Competition ESC/Sonic 540-M3 Spec motor combo package for 1/10 off-road vehicles. The Blackbox 1000Z+ speed controller combos include the most popular Sonic 540-M3 Modified off-road motors available. Reedy’s Blackbox 1000Z+ is a simple-to-use, economical, and powerful speed controller that features timing options for Modified class racers as well as zero-timing blinky mode for Spec class racers. Excellent throttle and brake feel, a wide range of adjustability, and robust hardware make the Blackbox 1000Z+ suitable for a variety of racing applications.
Reedy’s 540-M3 motors feature a 3-piece CNC-machined can to reduce weight while improving airflow, component fit, and bearing alignment. Heavy-duty silver-plated solder tabs reduce resistance with a cupped profile to aid soldering and are well supported to prevent internal connections from fatiguing over time. Modified racing is about controlling power. The 540-M3’s stator design optimizes mid-range feel such that when combined with the adjustability of the 1000Z+ ESC, it completes a system which both on- and off-road racers will appreciate.
Serpent have introduced new high downforce body for the Cobra SRX8. The body has high sidedams which keep the airflow more on top of the sides of the body and then onto the rear wing through the air scoops on the back-side of the body. The high downforce body is made with top quality clear polycarbonate with protective film.
