Traxxas have introduced their upgraded X-Maxx 1/8th electric monster truck. With the current model already being a pretty impressive piece of kit, the 2017 variant will offer even more strength and power. The X-Maxx 8S is packed with new 8S-rated components engineered to handle the brutal torque and incredible speed of 30+ volts 8S LiPo batteries. Full steel-gear driveline, larger driveshafts, larger main bearings, strengthened bulkhead, new heavy-duty ring and pinion gears, dual-fan motor cooling and more make the truck ready for the use with two 4S LiPo packs. The new torque-biasing center drive unit distributes the power for maximum wheels-up punch and unrelenting acceleration. For current X-Maxx owners Traxxas will offer an upgrade kit that brings the truck to 2017 specifications. The X-Maxx 8S will hit stores in February.

Coming soon from Castle Creations is the Mamba X sensored brushless speed controller for 1/10th scale applications. Capable of handling 2S to 6S LiPo battery packs the waterproof controller features an adjustable standard and high-voltage BEC system, it is telemetry and data logging capable, and it works with Castle Creations’s 1406, 1410 and 1415 sensored motors as well as other sensored brushless motors of comparable specifications. An addition cooling fan keeps the speedo, that is housed in an aluminium case, cool in demanding applications.

LapMonitor is a new personal lap-timer for RC cars that can also be used to time multi-driver races. The device is simple and fast to setup; it will be installed on the outside track, then connected with the Bluetooth of any mobile device and it is good to go. In terms of functionality LapMonitor will not only announce lap times but also a full live race commentary in many languages while also enabling to store and share the timing results. It has been tested and adopted by 2016 European Cup 1/8th IC winner, Stephane Bouche and the LapMonitor Training Pack is now available on Kickstarter with a 40 percent discount. The pack includes one LapMonitor and one transponder. Multi-transponder packages are also available and the system is compatible with both iOS and Android devices and it features a Bluetooth range of up to 80m.

Coming from Team Orion is the Battery Protection box. The military-style steel box is equipped with inner foam padding to protect LiPo battery packs during storage and transportation while rubber seals making the box air-tight, reducing harm and external damage in the unlikely event of a battery going boom. Carry handles allow for easy transportation and Team Orion prints give the storage box a cool racing look. The protection box is available in the three sizes of small, medium and large.

UK Roche distributor Zen Racing has released first images and information on the Rapide P12-2017 1/12th scale pan car kit. The car builds on the 2016 IFMAR World Championships and ROAR Nationals winning car and it utilises a newly designed 2.5mm carbon fibre chassis and rear power pod plate. Other areas that received a make over are the floating servo plate, the front lower aluminium bulkheads, the rear alloy chassis brace and the low centre of gravity motor mount. The rear centre top plates also are of a new design to accommodate the Rolling Friction Adjust System RFAS and included in the kit are furthermore a new big bore centre shock and new diff and clamping wheel hubs that allow the use of M2.5x8mm screws. The kit is rounded out by redesigned alloy side spring mounts and aluminium steering turnbuckles. More information and images should become available in time for the release.

Schumacher Racing, Sanwa distributor in the UK, have introduced the SRG-LS Black low-profile brushless servo. The SSR and High Response mode compatible digital servo features a full metal gear train, double ball bearings, 2-cell HV-compatibility and it comes with a black-colour aluminium middle heatsink. At 7.4V input the SRG-LS pulls up to 12.8kg-cm at a speed of down to 0.08s, making it ideal for 1/10th touring and 2WD buggy applications.

Japanese company GForce have introduced the G6AC 500W 6S-only LiPo charger. Designed especially for the use with 22.2V 6S LiPo packs the device originally targets drone pilots but it is also ideal for racers who use a 6S setup in their electric vehicle. The 500W charge circuit allows for charge rates of up to 20A with the internal balancer making for easy and convenient charging. The device is housed in an aluminium case with heatsink design and it offers an LC display for monitoring the battery’s vital signs.
