JConcepts: Silencer – Serpent SRX-2 MM Body


JConcepts: Silencer – Serpent Spyder SRX-2 MM Body

JConcepts Header

The JConcepts design team has spent many hours in development with leading team drivers to develop a new high-speed style body, specifically for the latest circuits. One of the most recognizable items, the Silencer body style, has now been designed for perfect fit and finish on the Serpent Spyder SRX-2 MM buggy.

A brand-new, ground up design, the Silencer, has new elements created for the highest speed circuits. A profiled, Finnisher stance cockpit and forward raised side-pod gives the Silencer an immediate fighting appearance. A smooth, high-speed transition around the cab, keeps the Silencer heading in the right direction. A slight recess just behind the cab with channeling out the rear provides rear-end stability. The Silencer side-pods have a clipped rear-end, narrowing the rear by angling in just in front of the rear tires. The rear side-pods angle sharply toward the shock tower and wing, enhancing the force placed on the rear pods during high-speed acceleration.

The main pods are heavily chamfered near the rear and lightly toward the front allowing plenty of paint and decal access. 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. The package includes two, 6.5” Hi-Clearance wings pre-marked for the Serpent Spyder for the easiest application.

AVID: TLR 8ight Buggy Titanium Lower Shock Screws


AVID: TLR 8ight Buggy Titanium Lower Shock Screws/Set

Avid

Our 8th Titanium Lower Shock Screws are a must upgrade for your TLR 8ight Nitro and Electric Buggy (does not work on Truggies). This screw set offers 2 left and 2 right hand threaded screws with a 1/4″ socket head so you only need to grab one wrench when taking your shocks off. As if that wasn’t enough already, we also included the Avid innovated center-drilled hole for easy docking of your calipers while measuring your shock lengths.

Screen shot 2014-04-15 at 5.05.12 PM

Tips:

Two of these screws are Left Hand Threaded so you screw them in by turning your wrench counter-clockwise. If you place your car on your pit table in front of you and you have the front end facing you, you put the left hand threaded screw in the left arm. If you spin the car around so the rear is facing, you put the left hand threaded screw in the left arm. The reason for this is because the action of the arm going up and down places enough leverage on the screw that it can unscrew your shock screw in those vital long mains.

We suggest that for 2.0 and 1.0 arms that you do not use the set screw holding option because these are reverse threaded on the left side. You will never lose one of these screws and the set screw will only junk up the threads.

It is recommended to not use a left hand threaded screw in an arm that you already threaded with a right hand threaded screw. The threads will not have much material to grab on.

Features:

Machined from billet 6Al-4V Titanium, 5-40x20mm
2 Left-hand, 2 Right-hand threaded screws per set. Left-hand thread screws are laser marked.
Center-drilled to locate calipers for precise shock length and droop measurements.
Use the same 1/4″ hex driver for shock tops and bottom mounts.
Lose weight and add “bling” over the kit steel screws (2.8g for a set of 4).
Fits TLR 8ight Buggies (all versions, does not fit truggies).
Each package includes 4 lower shock mount screws (2 LH, 2 RH) and 1 AVID mini decal sheet.

Josh Wheeler reports after his recent victory in the e-buggy class at the 2014 Silver State Nitro Challenge… This weekend was the 2014 Silverstate Nitro Challenge. I was able to go to California the day before to get in a little practice. My cars were good from the start and I did not have to change anything except for shock oil because of hot temperature. I kept the same setup that I used for Dirt Nitro Challenge last month.

Practice day went well, my cars were good and as the track got bumpier my buggy and ebuggy began to shine! My truggy was very fast also but a couple mistakes with traffic put me in the B Qualifier. My XB8 was awesome in the bumps and I managed to get the second place spot to start qualifying. I also put my ebuggy into the A qualifier.

Here are the updated Top 25 RC rankings following Silver State Nitro Challenge held in Boulder City Nevada. Some big movements on the list. Most notably is the appearance of Australian driver Kyle McBride in the 11 spot after winning Silver State. Kyle was not present on the previous list due to not attending enough qualifying events. Another big change was Atsushi Hara dropping 7 spots after finishing 18th this past weekend in Boulder City. US driver Drew Moller climbed 4 spots after a great weekend landing at #12. At the top of the Top 25 list, Ty Tessmann continues his reign as the world #1 ranked driver. This list might be short lived after the upcoming Neo14 held this weekend.

Steven Hartson renews contract with LRP

LRP

LRP is proud to announce that reigning 1/10 4WD Offroad World Champion Steven Hartson has renewed his contract with LRP. Team Associated’s Steven Hartson has made his choice. After winning the 2013 IFMAR 1/10 4WD Offroad World Championship with LRP Flow WorksTeam speed control, LRP Vector X20 Brushless Modified motor and LRP charging technology, Steven was already convinced. Soon to be released v3.8 software for the LRP Flow convinced him even more. LRP’s new secret weapon already showed its great performance by powering Steven to TQ and wins in both 2WD and 4WD at the recent April Fools Classic.
