Full_Colour_Logo

DB0801AA_1

New into stock, and commercially available ready for the first National of the season are the latest performance engineered tyres from dBoots – the MultiByte ‘A’ compound for 1/8 off road. (db0801AA)

Developed in the UK for Astroturf tracks, the innovative duel level Multibyte tread which is proving popular in 10th scale, has an operational window somewhere between angle-spikes and minipins. The MultiByte in our ‘A’ compound could give you the speed and endurance edge you require.

There are side ribs to limit the side bite and the spikes designed with a step so they can be trimmed to a shorter stump to tune the grip levels.

Perhaps they will make a mark at Frankly this weekend if the conditions are right.

New Stuff: Ryan Lutz signs 10 year deal with Team Durango (985 Reads)
Posted by admin on Thursday, January 06, 2011 - 02:27 PM
 

piraterc.com news

“I am extremely excited today to have forged a long term contract with Team Durango. Originally we agreed, in principle, to work together until the end of the 2010 season and we would talk longer term come December. Another thing this offered was the chance to really test the DNX408 and get to know the company before making any decisions.

This is why I am so excited to have signed a 10 year contract with Team Durango. In the past three months I have gotten to see how this company operates, and the pride that they take in making top-of-the-line racing vehicles. Their slogan is, “Serious about Racing” and I have never witnessed a company take this more to heart. That is why I am confident that the next 10 years will be wrought with success for both parties involved and why I am proud to put my name alongside Team Durango.

In the next 10 years I will do everything I can to help Team Durango make the best R/C cars on the planet, and help make sure their customers are as satisfied as possible with the products they are buying! All-in-all with this deal of a decade in hand I’m ready to get started winning and performing at my best for this company that has put a lot of faith in me! I’m really looking forward to it!

jconcepts

JConcepts and Ryan Maifield make their presence known with amazing speed, new products and a lot of memories at the 2010 1/8th IFMAR World Championships.

The right product at the right time combined with the right drivers made the IFMAR Worlds an event to remember for JConcepts. Victory was within grasp, close enough that one could visualize Ryan Maifield holding the trophy. However, it wasn’t to be after Maifield’s speedy Associated RC8b buggy ran short of fuel while swapping for the lead roughly 25 minutes into the A-Final.

New Stuff: A Sure Start review by Brennan Ralls (1253 Reads)
Posted by admin on Tuesday, November 23, 2010 - 03:17 PM
 

piraterc.com news

A while back John Bennett of RC Sure start sent me an engine pre heater to test, promote & give some feed back. To be honest its an area I have never really bothered on although for years I have seen guys with hot air guns trying to warm up the engine heads, for me that just looked to much like hard work to be fun. With the onset of winter now was a great opportunity to put the Sure Start to the test & with its simple design seemed a cracking bit of kit.

AKA is pleased to announce for the iHobby show the addition of a “Super Soft”  compound to their line up of tires.   The “Super Soft” or V compound as is noted in the part number is for cooler conditions when the track is transitioning from wet to a drier hard packed line that is not quite grooved in.  Great for winter and early spring racing conditions.  Super Soft still retains the relative long lasting wear characteristics that AKA is known for while providing that extra measure of traction for the trickiest of surface conditions.  This new compound is available in all tread patterns for both buggy and truggy.

New Stuff: Edit Shock Oil Range (880 Reads)
Posted by admin on Tuesday, March 24, 2009 - 03:55 PM
 

Edit

Edit Pure Silicone Shock Oil is the ultimate race-proven match for the most modern of today's top-end racing shock absorbers and dampers. Edit shock oil will not thicken at low temperatures or thin at high temperatures, making it ideal for every racing application from indoor 1/12th and micro to rallycross buggy and touring car.

Supplied in convenient 60cc bottles to let you take the full set in your pit bag. Easy screw-off tops and narrow tips let you add exactly the right amount of oil to fill or top-up your shocks.

#ED190150 Pure Silicone Shock Oil 150cst (60cc)
#ED190200 Pure Silicone Shock Oil 200cst (60cc)
#ED190250 Pure Silicone Shock Oil 250cst (60cc)
#ED190300 Pure Silicone Shock Oil 300cst (60cc)
#ED190350 Pure Silicone Shock Oil 350cst (60cc)
#ED190400 Pure Silicone Shock Oil 400cst (60cc)
#ED190450 Pure Silicone Shock Oil 450cst (60cc)
#ED190500 Pure Silicone Shock Oil 500cst (60cc)
#ED190600 Pure Silicone Shock Oil 600cst (60cc)
#ED190850 Pure Silicone Shock Oil 850cst (60cc)
#ED191000 Pure Silicone Shock Oil 1000cst (60cc)

Having Moved to using the Edit shock oil range I must say i am very impressed the quality compares to that of Xray shock oil. The CST rating is the same, and you can follow the pro's setup sheets with no issues at all. I do believe the best bit is the cost just £3.49 for a 60ml bottle now that's a credit crunch beater if ever i saw one.

Posted by admin on Saturday, November 22, 2008 - 02:42 PM
 

Pro Line

The only way to wrench on your vehicle is with Pro-Line tools. They offer many benefits that make wrenching easier and assist you with building your car right the first time.

Durability – Durability is key when it comes to working on your rig hours upon hours. Pro-Line has recognized the need for a super-strong tip that you can count on to get the job done every time you work on your car. The tips are made from high strength steel and finished off with a titanium color finish. The handles are made of lightweight aluminum and are complete with a hard anodized finish.

Easy identification – Unlike many tools on the market, Pro-Line’s tools have highly visible numbers for easy identification. For ball drivers we’ve added a B at the end so you can find the right tool for the job with ease.

Grip action – Pro-Line unique spiral cut finished handles offer the traction you need to get the job done right the first time while offering complete comfort. The outer diameter (OD) of the handle is sized to best meet the torque specifications you need with that particular tool. If your hands are oily or that red loctite is just too tough to get off, then you’ll appreciate the included hole on the handle side of the tool. This allows you to “T” up the allen wrench for added torque.

Today Pro-Line dropped a bomb on the tire industry. They secretly developed a "wide" 1/8-scale buggy tire, which isn't ROAR legal, but fits within the IFMAR rules and might just be an advantage at the IFMAR Worlds which takes place in just a few short weeks at the Farm2 in North Carolina.

There are going to be a few tread patterns, but their first release is the very popular bow tie. What does a wider tire do? Well it gives you more traction and more grip and smooths out the buggy. Pro-Lines testing show pretty significant reductions in laptimes from either using all wides, or wide rears. Think it's silly? Look at most forms of racing and the tires aren't the same width. With the amount of power and new more aggressive feel of modern buggies larger tires might just something that helps you go faster and feel more confident.

Horizon Hobbie UK

Going gas racing can be expensive. Competition  usually means spending a good deal money on trying to beat the next guy. The latest chassis, the best radio money can buy, it all adds up at the end of the day. Some may think it’s the big purchases that will guarantee victory but experience gas competitors will agree that you may as well be pushing a brick with square wheels around the track if your pit stop doesn’t go according to plan. Obviously the most essential piece of kit at fuel stops is what is used to transfer the fuel into the tank. Traditional bottles are all well and good, but they can be messy and eventually they will split. If it does you can go from hero to zero in the blink of an eye. Time to bring the bottle into the 21st century! The brand new Nitrolite fuel gun from Dynamite will see the fuel tank filled in seconds! The pistol grip delivery will automatically shut off when released meaning a full tank every time, so no messy spillages. Using the very latest technology, the Nitrolite fuel gun will help to turn fuel stops into part of a race winning scenario. Advanced internal engineering allows for faster fuel flow, meaning shorter pit stops. All vital alloy parts have also been anodised to add to the smooth efficient trigger action and also reduce the chance of corrosion. It even has a two mode LED light feature to help your crew attract your attention in pit lane. With both fixed and strobe modes it can easily be removed when not appropriate.

Features 2-mode LED light for easier viewing of fuel tank during night running and racing Anodised internal components for reduced corrosion and more efficient operation Advanced internal engineering allows for faster fuel flow, meaning shorter pit stops Auto cut-off ensures a full tank every time with no overfills

New Stuff: Pre-mounted LPR 1:8 Truck Tires (823 Reads)
Posted by admin on Wednesday, January 16, 2008 - 11:19 AM
 

Pro Line

1:8 Truck racing has become so competitive—this or that shock oil, these or those springs, 1,000 or 80,000 diff oil or anything in-between. With so much attention paid to car set-up coupled with a multiple number of tire patterns to choose from, why waste time mounting tires? Well look no further. Pro-Line’s new LPR pre-mounts allow more time for tuning, are truer than the average mounted tire, are adhered with an ultra-bond CA for a secure, worry free bond, and are backed with Pro-Line quality. Never again will you have to worry about misaligning the tire with the wheel, not finish a qualifier or main event due to glue failure or worry about making your next run in time with pre-mounted Pro-Line tires for 1:8 Trucks.

Pro-Line's pre-mounted 1:8 LPR tires are glued to Velocity dish wheels in standard offset or ½” offset and available in gleaming white or vibrant Pro-Line yellow.

Posted by admin on Wednesday, December 26, 2007 - 07:06 AM
 

jconcepts

JConcepts racing tires –

"Double Dees" unleashed - First Big race, first Big win.
JConcepts Racing Tires made their debut at the 2007 Nitro Challenge in Surprise, AZ. In the hotly contested 45 minute A-main event, Ryan Maifield made it a debut to remember by winning the Pro Gas Truck class A-main with his Associated GT2 running on JConcepts "Double Dees" tires in Sticky Green Compound.
JConcepts driver Ryan Maifield stated:
"You can tell if a tire is going to work on the first lap and especially in 1/10th scale and gas truck in particular. While in the lead with 2 minutes to go, when I heard the race announcer say I had my fastest lap in the entire 45 minute A-main, I was impressed!"
JConcepts President Jason Ruona stated:
"I have been fascinated with R/C tires since I started racing in 1991. I've driven in 3-IFMAR Worlds A-main finals and been a Pro driver since 1994. Great drivers can make a lot of products look good; tires are not one of those products."
JConcepts racing tires are available in soft blue compound and super soft Sticky Green compound. Please view the JConcepts Tire Application chart for thread pattern and compound suggestions.
Although, the first major event for these tires, they have been under development for nearly a year. Rigorous testing by qualified drivers and designers make for ideal racing products.
JConcepts - Will, Vision, Desire, Strength and Creativity.

Ultimate Racing

Following our personal trend for offering products to the racing drivers, Ultimate Racing is proud to present this new product called silicon tube connector. The idea came from its driver’s experience. Sometimes, removing and replacing repeatedly the fuel tubing verifying the car during races or cleaning it, the silicone fuel tube gets damaged or cracked. This tube connector allows taking the fuel tube out without removing on the tank or the pipe. It has been designed without any nipple avoiding the fuel tubing potential damage. The internal size of the tube connector and the UR silicone fuel tube is exactly the same, maintaining exactly the same fuel flow when the fuel goes through the tube connector. Following our personal trend for customizing, we offer this product in four different colours: black, purple, gold and blue.

Hudy

The extra robust HUDY Wheel Nut Tool was specially developed to work on the 1/8 Buggy and Truggy 17mm wheel nuts in dirty and abusive conditions. No matter how tightly the wheel nuts are locked, the HUDY Wheel Nut Tool will allow you to very easily and comfortably release the wheel nut. The special design of the oversized handle gives you superior torque to tighten the wheel nuts
