JConcepts Silencer body for D8120 comments - Jun 18 2013 06:23 PM
JConcepts have released the Silencer body for the Hot Bodies D812, a brand-new, ground up design which has new elements created for the highest speed circuits. A narrowed, Finnisher stance cockpit allows more fuel tank access a smoother high-speed transition and increased flow around the engine heat-sink. A deep recess around the heat-sink area with dual channeling out the rear provides air escape along with rear-end stability, while the Silencer side-pods have a clipped rear-end, narrowing the rear by angling just in front of the rear tires. The extended runner features are placed on the rear-end of the body enhancing the force placed on the rear pods during high-speed acceleration. The main pods are heavily chamfered and a more heat-shrink design over the pipe, fuel tank and electrical / linkage make up the main pods. The end result has the body looking extremely low-profile with heavy JConcepts edginess and appeal. The Silencer is capped off with a cock-pit “shark fin” for more high-speed tracking stability and increased roof stiffness.

Team Grid BalancePro Zero
Team Grid have released what they claim is the most sensitive wheel balancer for touring cars. Touring car wheels are much lighter than off-road wheels and can benefit from even more precise balancing and the BalancePro Zero is the tool that can deliver the extra racing edge needed for modern touring cars. It uses a true parallel twin blade knife-edge balancing system to provide Zero friction balancing on its continuous contact area, that no other ball bearing based system can offer. Even balanced wheels from a bearing based balancer may still appear unbalanced on the BalancePro Zero. Ultra sensitive it can level perfectly on any surface on its three adjustable legs with the aid of a bubble level. Its balance rod is precision ground with an ultra light weight Delrin hub adapter and a finger guard to ensure total safety.
