Yokomo YD-2 SLF big bore shock tapered piston

For the YD-2 series of cars, Yokomo release these SLF big bore shock tapered piston. Developed by Team Yokomo drift members, one side of the piston surface has a tapered shape meaning the damping feeling differs depending on the mounting direction, softer for the movement of the piston in the direction of the taper. In addition, the piston hole is angled diagonally with respect to the shock operating direction so the damping changes with respect to a sudden shock input due to the action of fluid dynamics. At times it has the effect of absorbing small bumps while maintaining a high damping force. The piston hole setting is ø1.1 mm x 6 holes and each set contains 2 pieces.

Revolution Design titanium front axle & clamping hex

Saving weight, adding durability, and increasing adjustment options is high on the list of every racer. The one-piece aluminium front axles of Team Associated’s B6.2 are very light already, but can be bent by hard impacts and offer no track width adjustment options as seen on the buggies of the competition. Their truck counterparts are made of steel for added durability, but still have a fixed track width and off-set, and increase unsprung weight. RDRP’s titanium wheel axles come with 5mm aluminium clamping hexes for the B6 series and 8.5mm versions for their stadium and short course truck brothers. Both axle types accept the readily available Associated 1/10th scale wheel hexes for even more variety.

Xray XB4 Gamma 4C ultra-lightweight body

From Xray comes this ultra-lightweight version of the XB4 Gamma 4C Light body, especially designed for high traction conditions. The profile of the body improves stability in fast corners, chicanes and helps with rotation in tight corners. The high-performance, low-profile aerodynamic body for XB4C is designed by Xray to perfectly fit the car and work in most track conditions especially for higher grip tracks. More down force have was added to the middle to increase rotation in slow corners. Less down force in rear and front give more corners speed without diving too much. Made from high-quality premium Lexan material.

RC Dynamics 1S Super Low ESR Power capacitor

From RC Dynamics, this 1S Super Low ESR Power capacitor helps minimises power losses to give greater performance. The primary purpose of the ESC power capacitor is to minimise power losses caused by the high frequency switching currents generated during motor commutation/control. The goal being to maximise ESC performance and minimise the heat generated in the internal circuits. It is very important that the ESC has a power source with minimal source impedance. The latest LiPo batteries used in 1S on road racing now already provide an incredibly low internal resistance. Therefore in order for the capacitor to provide maximum benefit it must have an ESR (Effective Series Resistance) at the relevant frequencies, at least an order of magnitude less than the LiPo battery internal resistance. The traditional Aluminium Electrolytic power caps do not have such a low ESR. The RC Dynamics 1S Super Low ESR Power capacitor, is manufactured using the highest performance components available and is tailored to suit RC models powered by a 1S LiPo Voltage source. Prototypes have been highly successful, installed in the winning cars at the 2020 Stock World and European Championships, also at UK National level.
