HB Racing D418 rear gear box & arm mount sets

See: HB Racing

HB Racing have introduced a new rear gear box and three sets of arm mounts for the D418. The new rear gear box is designed for high grip astroturf and carpet race tracks. It raises the position of the diff and upper arm mount to match the roll center when using a low ride height. The HB Team Drivers report it makes the D418 easier to drive on high grip surfaces, improves corner speed, and smoothes out rear end grip. This new rear gear box should be used with D418 Arm Mounts 4, 5 or 6. The set includes one gear box, aluminum tube, R2 skid plate (standard, use with this application), and R4 skid plate (for future options).

AVID B74/B6.1 black shock standoffs & black hexes

See: AVID Racing Concepts

AVID RC have introduced new black shock standoffs for the Team Associated B74 and new black hexes for the Team Associated B74 and B6.1 lineup of vehicles. First up are the popular shock standoffs in a 10mm version for the B74. They include replaceable Delrin bushings and threaded all the way through to keep them from bending as easily. Next up are the black hexes in 5mm. They include the ever popular 2-56” screw that is a larger thread with a 2mm head to prevent stripping. It is suggested to use AVID’s 12mm carbon track width spacers so you only need to own one set of hexes instead of the 5mm, 6mm, and 7mm sets.

RDRP B74 fan mount


Coming from Revolution Design Racing Products is an aluminium fan mount for Team Associated’s latest B74 1/10th 4WD buggy. The item is machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium and it attaches to the centre chassis brace by using an already existing mounting point. The mount is designed for 30mm and 40mm fan units that are held in place with much greater reliability compared to just using double-sided tape while also adding visual impact and cool factory looks. The black anodised item comes laser-etched to show off your passion for everything RDRP and it only adds minimal weight. The fan mount is a direct fit on the B74 when using 30mm fan units. 40mm fans only fit certain body shells so some adjustments to the body height might be needed. The mount is also available including a Ruddog 30mm aluminium HV high speed cooling fan (#RDRP0495-RP3).

It had been twelve months since the Christchurch Indoor Radio Control Car Club (CIRCCC) had put on a weekend extravaganza of off-road carpet racing, and after many late nights and a lot of organisation from the committee it was time for round two!  After taking on feedback and learning a bit from last years event, the meeting was pushed out to two whole days with an earlier finish on day one, which saw most of the drivers turn up on day 2 looking a bit fresher! President Luke Prattley had dropped a new epic track with a bit of everything – high speed chicane, technical double into 180 and some straights to let the motors wind out.

HUDY chassis protector vinyl sticker


HUDY have introduced a new chassis protector vinyl sticker for 1/10 vehicles. This premium vinyl sticker is recommended for use on new and used chassis to resist against scratches and scrapes and prolong the life of the chassis. In addition to protecting the chassis, the protector also provides a slick and smooth chassis surface which reduces friction when contacting the race surface – especially clay. If you land hard and bottom out, your buggy should more easily slide through it and maintain the momentum. Measuring 360x125mm / 14.2’’x4.9’’, the chassis protector vinyl sticker sports cool HUDY graphics and it can be easily cut to fit your car.
