JConcepts unveiled the Triple Dees 1/8 buggy tires. The Triple Dees is the evolution of the Double Dees, originally designed in 2007 were ahead of their time. Now the Triple Dees, designed in the future and available now represent the latest in grip from JConcepts. Loose and tacky track conditions require small pin designs and the Triple Dees were a fresh design from the ground-up. Starting with finely spaced square mini lugs, the JConcepts design team spent considerable time proofing this design.

See: XRAY

XRAY introduces optional medium-hardness composite chassis side guards for XB4 4wd buggy. Softer than the side guards included in the kit, they are a great tuning part for chassis flex adjustment.

These medium-hardness side guards make the chassis more flexible and are recommended for low-traction tracks. Perfect fitment on the chassis seals against dirt, and provides protection from side impacts.

AVID B5M / TLR22 triad direct drive

AVID triad direct drive5

See: AVID

AVID introduces the triad direct drive set that allows stock racers to remove the entire clutch assembly for conditions where the driver feels having less rotating mass and zero slip except from the differential is beneficial.

AVID offers an improved version from what is currently on the market with the lightest direct drive unit available today.

They accomplished this by removing all the plates and pads as well as the steel spring with a minimalist design done in aluminum. The DD Plate is hard anodized for strength and the DD Post is gutted for weight removal for a grand total of 0.8g. Direct fit onto B5, B5M (an included M4 Aluminum Flanged Locknut to remove even more weight if you are using the stock steel nut), T5M, SC5M, TLR22, 22T, 22 SCT, Kyosho RB6 and RB5 (Triad Kyosho Aluminum Topshaft is required to run the Triad on your vehicle). Coming soon.
