Tekno RC V3 Brushless Conversion Kits

Here is the Tekno Rc V3 Brushless Conversion Kit available for the Associated RC8/RC8T/SC8, Losi 8B/8T, Hot Bodies D8, Jammin' X2-CRT, and Mugan MBX5-T. The conversion kits come in two different models depending on which brushless motors people are using. One kit is for the Tekno/Neu/Castle Creations/Hacker motors and the other kit is for the Medusa/Novak/Feigao motors.

Every conversion kit comes with a 4mm 7075 T6 CNC hard anodized chassis. This eliminates having to drill your current chassis unlike other conversion kits. The chassis is also recessed to lower the CG, especially where the battery sits. The batteries in this kit sit lower than any other conversion kit on the market today.

The kit is designed to have mechanical braking by using a servo. The advantage of using a servo for braking is a cooler esc and motor and you can also adjust the front and rear brake bias. But it may require a three channel radio with mixing to be able to use the mechanical brakes depending on the setup.

The kit also comes with an Elektri-Clutch system to tune the power delivery. The clutch works just like the gas clutches. The hardened steel clutchbells will last a long time because the motor is disengaged from the drivetrain while off power. But for those who prefer direct drive, the kit is compatible with long shank 5mm bore mod 1 pinions as well.

The kits range in price retailing from $109.99 to $129.99 depending on the model of the conversion kit. This is a very good price considering you get a brand new 7075 T6 CNC chassis and all the hardware needed to convert a gas 1/8th scale to an electric buggy or truggy except for electronics.

Axial SCX10

This is the new scale crawler from Axial (part#AX90007). The SCX10 is designed to replicate a 1 to 1 scale truck chassis. This kit is not designed to be a competition crawler. It can still do some rock crawling, but not to the extreme as the AX10 from Axial. The SCX10 is designed more for trail driving. The kit comes with 1.9 size tire from Pro-Line for a scale appearance, instead of the bigger 2.2 tire found on competition crawlers. There is also many hop-ups or optional parts for this kit already, such as aluminum shock bodies and optional springs to name a few.

STRC Battery Brace for the Traxxas Slash

Here is the STRC Battery Brace for the Traxxas Slash. The brace is available in three colors: blue (part#ST3727B), red (part#ST3727R), and silver (part#ST3727S). The battery brace has a few advantages over the stock brace. The original brace only allowed lipo battery packs to sit in the rear position in the battery box. Very few lipo battery packs could sit in the forward position because of the battery wire connection to the ESC. This brace from STRC allows all lipo battery packs to sit in the battery box in the front or rear position of the battery box. This can be an advantage on the track, since it allows people to adjust the weight distribution of the Slash.

The STRC battery bar also allows people to use side-by-side battery packs that are directly soldered to the ESC. The original brace would get in the way of the soldering tabs.

The only disadvantage of the STRC battery brace is that it does not allow the use of a 7 cell hump battery pack.

STRC3727 MSRP $10.99

Robitronic Lap Counting System

This is the Robitronic Lap Counting System (part#RS160). The lap counting system comes with software for a computer, pc interface module, receiver module cable, pc interface serial cable, three transponders, and four receivers. The system uses inferred lights to communicate from the transponders to the receivers. Each transponder (part#RS163) has a unique number and they are very small (12mm x 16mm x 7mm), lightweight (3 grams) and more can be purchased additionally if needed. Each receiver (part#RS164) can cover up to about 1 foot width of track space. With the purchase of additional receivers, the system could support a track that is 12 feet wide.

The only thing needed for the lap counting system is a bridge for the receivers. The bridge can be made out of pvc, but can be made out of other materials (wood), and needs to be suspended 2 to 3 feet above the track.

The Robitronic Lap Counting System is very inexpensive compared to others (AMB). The street price is about $369.99 for the system.

RS160 Street Price $369.99 - Lap Counting System

RS163 MSRP $55.00 - Transponder

RS164 MSRP $46.00 - Receiver

STRC Steering Knuckles for AX10

These are the steering knuckles for the Axial AX10. The knuckle on the left is the aluminum CNC machined high clearance knuckle (part#STA80003) and the one on the right is the aluminum precision machined steering knuckle (part#STA80004). The STA80003 is designed to work with the off-set of the 8 hole revolver style rim (or wheels with the same off-set) that came with the AX10 ARTR or RTR. The STA80003 gives the maximum steering angle possible compared to the original AX80004.

The STA80004 are a direct replacement from the kits AX80004 part but in aluminum. If people have aftermarket rims with thick bead locks or rims that have a narrower offset than the stock 8 hole rim, they should use the STA80004.

STA80003 - MSRP $25.99
