  • Tamiya TRF419 kit coming soon

    0 comments - Yesterday, 10:37 PM

    In pursuit of Tamiya's 6th IFMAR World Championship title in the Touring Car class, the Tamiya Racing Factory designers have been hard at work. Their latest creation is the TRF419. The TRF419 is the successor to the TRF418, but it has been heavily tweaked and optimized to give Tamiya's top drivers the best chance in securing the 2014 World Title.





    TRF418 VS. TRF419 differences:

    - Aside from the suspension parts, the rest of the chassis features a whole range of updates and new parts.

    - Carbon fiber upper and lower decks have been redesigned for optimum chassis balance and to maximize the potential of the new drivetrain parts.

    - Oil-filled Dampers follow a new design, and combined with new carbon fiber stays will provide excellent traction on a range of track surface conditions.

    - The new aluminum motor mount ensures that the chassis' supreme flexibility is fed back more efficiently. The motor position is altered to optimize weight distribution.

    - Features newly-designed bulkheads, motor mount, dampers and gear differential unit.


    Newly Designed parts include:

    - Carbon Lower Deck

    - Carbon Upper Deck

    - Carbon Front/Rear Damper Stays

    - Aluminum Motor Mount

    - Aluminum F/R Lower Bulkheads

    - Aluminum F/R Upper Bulkheads

    - Steel Center Pulley Shaft

    - Aluminum Servo Mount

    - Front/Rear Drive Belts

    - Gear Differential Unit Front Direct Coupling

    - Dampers

    - Aluminum Suspension Mounts

  • Hot Bodies R8 1/8th on-road kit

    0 comments - Oct 28 2014 10:04 PM

    Making its premiere at the 2013-2014 IFMAR World Championships in Japan, the HB R8 surprised the RC world with a well-deserved appearance in the Final, before it even had an official name. The R8 is the first car from HB to enter the extremely competitive class of 1/8th Nitro Track racing - commonly known as the "Formula One of RC" because of the speed and complexity of the cars.


    With a 5mm thick 7075-series aircraft aluminum chassis and bulkheads built for fast settings changes, a 2-piece steering knuckle design and more precision machined alloy throughout the car, the HB R8 is purpose-built from the ground up to be competitive right from the star!
