New Bittydesign‬ ‎Touring Car Body – TEASER

teaser-bitty-tc-190mm-1

Let the speculation begin, as Bittydesign have teased us with an image or two of their upcoming 190mm Touring Car body. This body was created in collaboration with a team of expert automotive car designer and engineers, developed in Italy with one goal: set a new level in terms of style and performance in scale touring car racing. Not many conclusions to be drawn, although the front end has major nods to Alfa Romeo – and there’s DEFINITELY worse cues to take from full-scale car design in that aspect!

NEW PART: Intech ER-12M 2.0 Ball Diff

IntechER12MRevisedDiff

Intech Racing have just unleashed new revisions to their custom differentials for the ER-12M 2.0 and ER-12M 2.0 Lite buggies. The new diff now features 14 ceramic diff balls (instead of 12 carbide) for smoother operation and less slipping. In addition, the 52T diff gear, male diff outdrive, and diff clutch spring have all been modified. These changes will improve the performance of the ER-12M 2.0 Buggy with a smoother and easier to adjust ball differential, and Intech are actually offering a free exchange program for the old specification diff with customers receiving the revised diff when sending the old one to the national distributors – a pretty neat operation. So if you’re an ER-12M or Lite owner, there’s no excuse not to upgrade to the new, revised diff!

NEW MOTOR: REDS M7 WCS V3.0 .21 On-Road Engine

REDS-M7-WCS-V3

REDS have released their latest 3.5 cc 1/8 on-road engine, the M7WCS V3.0. The V3.0 is the powerplant REDS are claiming is their best performing and highest quality on-road engine – and the feature list backs that up, as it’s a doozy:

  • new crankshaft
  • new cooling system
  • new crankcase
  • new backplate
  • new GEN2 Venturi
  • new low speed needle
  • made in Japan 7x19x6mm front bearing
  • made in Japan glow plug

REDS-M7-WCS-V3-2

The Diamond backplate is refined with a special anti-friction hard coating RDC. This coating allows decreased conrod-backplate friction improving engine efficiency and performance. The new made in Japan 7x19x6mm front bearing is especially designed for high RPM. The new bearing features high precision, better sealing compared to metal shielded bearings, low friction, high reliability and fits all on road engine brands. M7WCS V3.0 comes now with TS7 made in Japan glow plug. This plug guarantees easier tuning and high reliability starting from the break in process.

It’s advisable to combine the M7 WCS 3.0 only with original REDS exhaust system, 2113 pipe and L manifold and with original spare parts.

NEW PART: Team Associated V2 Diffs (for RC8B3/RC8B3e)

Team-Associated-V2-Differential-Sets-For-The-RC8B3-And-RC8B3e-2

Here are several new differential sets from Team Associated for their RC8B3 and RC8B3e models. Development of these brand new diffsets started with a new internal bevel gear set to make the strongest tooth form with optimal fluid shear characteristics, ensuring long life and broad application potential across most, if not all, circuit types. The outdrives have also been re-worked to make for a perfect bearing surface for smooth differential action under any load. The diff case and inserts were tooled for the ultimate in precision, giving proper gear backlash every time. Hardened steel, straight-cut bevel gears or spurs cap the system off for one of the most efficient drivetrains in the industry – pretty much what you’d expect from these guys at this point!

 

Features

  • Optimized internal bevel gear set has high torque capacity as well as superior fluid shear rates over a broad working spectrum
  • Precision molded diff case provides proper gear mesh for consistent builds and reduced fluid contamination
  • Hardened steel outdrives have precision bearing surfaces for smooth diff action under any load
  • Highly efficient straight-cut ring gears improve acceleration and fuel economy
  • Hardened steel spur gear extends life and provides smooth power delivery (nitro version)
  • Precision composite spur gear with optimized geometry extends life and provides smooth power delivery (electric version)

The sets are priced at $99.99 each (around £70 GBP) for the #81361 – RC8B3 V2 Differential Set and #81362 – RC8B3e V2 Differential Set.

NEW PART: JConcepts Aero Front Scoop (for Team Associated B5M)

JConcepts-B5M-aero-front-scoop-640x392

New from the folks at JConcepts is this aero front scoop specifically designed for the Team associated B5M.

Fine adjustments are key in top level motor racing of all scales, and JConcepts has responded to numerous demands with an additional aero option. With a great deal of success in the early 2000s, including an IFMAR World Championship to their name, the front scoop option for a buggy has already shown success. However, this key option part used during the 2005 Worlds has never been made available on the latest generation buggies; until now.

Introducing the Aero front scoop for the Team Associated buggy (flat front arm tower setup), the option part is simple, but, yet an effective way to gain some response in the front-end in high-speed situations. The scoop provides a more neutral feel low-speed and tends to numb out the steering in 180 degree corners while providing great holding power in high-speed sweeping corners typically associated with larger track layouts and conditions.
