TRG F103/F104 dual bellcrank steering set

Japanese company TRG have released first information and images of a new dual bellcrank steering system for Tamiya F103 and F104 based pan cars. Designed to deliver an optimised Ackermann geometry the set greatly improves cornering for a more predictable and faster ride. The set only works with low-profile servos of 25mm to 27mm height and with the mounting tabs being 17.5mm high. Included in the set come aluminium bellcranks and steering posts, a carbon fibre steering plate and mounting brace as well as ball bearings and mounting hardware. The steering kit, that will become available by end of July, fits most F103 and F104 kits as well as the Kyosho Plasma F1 and the TRG F114 but some DIY to fully adapt the set to the chassis may be required.

Krueger, Feneis & Hammann win at MN State champs

The Minnesota State Championships have been held in Starbuck, MN for 18 years. The facility provides a covered track, camping, and a venue for some of the best competition in the region. In the 2WD Modified class, Team Associated’s Kraig Krueger used his mid motor B5M to hold off a surging Neil Feneis to secure his third consecutive state title. In the Modified Truck class it was Neil Feneis (Team Associated) and his RC10T4.2 who narrowly grabbed the win from last year’s State Champion Marshall Skare. Having already secured a state title in touring car earlier this year, Dan Hamann (Team Associated) used his SC10.2 to add a short course title to his resume.

ARC R10 2015 touring car kit

ARC introduce the R10 2015 1/10th 4WD touring car kit. Using feedback collected from drivers at all levels around the world, ARC have further refined the chassis with the main objectives to give more steering, more mechanical grip and maximum side bite to maintain higher corner speeds, with the goal to improve lap times of club and international level racers alike. First up is a new upper deck that offers less screw holes for durability while the new shape of the front of the top deck allows more flex towards the front of the chassis promoting more steering. An added benefit of the short split front is added clearance for the latest generation of Lipo batteries using 5mm plugs.
