|You’re looking at the newest treads in TRC’s Off Road lineup. The Zombies have a ladder-bar tread for forward bite and fine square knobs to keep you hooked up in the groove, and the Mambo 4-rib front tires will keep your buggy pointed in the right direction. Both are available on new dish wheels, with TRC’s “guaranteed to stay glued” promise. If the tires come off the wheels in use, TRC will replace them for you. You may never CA your fingers together again|
|Trinity mini-truck foam tire adapters|
|Trinity’s new wheel adaptors allows the use of foam touring tires on your Itsy Bitsy Spyder and Associated RC18, and also will fit the rear of the Team Losi Mini-T. “The perfect way to dial in your truck for carpet racing and an excellent way to use up all your old touring car tires!” says Trinity. Pretty cool.|
|Check out Peaks all new ROAR/NORRCA spec Hellfire RS24 rebuildable stock motor. The Hellfire RS 24 features a dual stack, Power Tunnel armature and new super-strength G12 wet magnets that Peak claims deliver maximum torque and rpm while maintaining high efficiency. Surface-mount capacitors are pre-installed and eliminate the need to solder any additional capacitors.
The Hellfire RS24 comes in a standard version for the do-it-yourself enthusiast and in a blueprinted race version that includes a fully balanced armature, diamond-trued commutator, race-spec brushes and springs and a full dyno test with printout.
|Trinitys P2k-2 Stock Motor is a higher-rpm version of the track-proven P2k. It features a newly designed, high-rpm armature that yields a power band between those of the P2k and the Green Machine 2.
Get the standard model or the factory-tweaked Pro version with high-output springs and brushes. Of course, both are fully rebuildable.
P2k-2item no. 2120; $39.95.
|Team Trinity has just announced the latest ‘D’ motor, the D5. as expected, it’s full of new features, including board-mounted capacitors and a radical flat-wire armature. Here’s Trinity’s official release on the new motor…New for modified racing is the long awaited D5 Flatliner. This high torque motor utilizes FlatWire technology for low polar moment of inertia. This lets the armature start and stop faster for more punch off the line and out of the corners. The increased surface area of FlatWire against the armature web saturates the armature laminations to a greater degree than possible with round wire. The result is a more powerful, more efficient armature for the same number of turns as compared with round wire. The D5′s Flatliner armatures come in doubles and singles to start with more winds to come. Jim Dieter recommends the singles saying they run like no single you are used to and are the best choice for almost every application.
The D5 also has a change on the endbell. It now uses an external circuit board with hard-wired capacitors. This eliminates any glitching problems from dirt getting under the heatsinks and the capacitor not making good contact. Capacitors are now visible so they are easier to inspect. This also makes taking the endbell apart and cleaning it easier as there are no little capacitors to lose.
To finish off the D5, Jim and the team came up with new ‘turbine’ can venting which increases cooling yet better manages the cans magnetic field. All in all the D5 is a higher torque and powerful motor then the P-94 especially on tracks where there is a high combination of long and short straights and low and high speed corners.

|Here’s the official story according to Team Orion:
The all new Advantage advanced charging system packs all the functions you want from a charger and more. Just to name a few ones, fully adjustable step charging, with this the user can specify different charge rates to be used for the charge. This allows the pack to store more energy and maintain pack temperature to an optimal level during charge. Fully adjustable delta-peak, capacity or temperature cut-off. Cycling function with storage of the measured data. Motor run-in capability. USB data port to monitor and store data on your computer. We have even built in a stopwatch and a lap counter in this charger! All these groundbreaking features are easily accessible through our “Easy 2 charge” interface. The interface itself can be set to a language that better suits you (4 in total).

|The new XRS combines the usual Novak good stuff (like One-Touch Setup,Thermal Overload Protection, cool-running Polar drive Circuitry, and Radio Priority Circuitry) with a new “Smart Braking II” feature. Applying up-trigger gives fully proportional brake control, and will not engage reverse until you return the trigger to neutral, and apply up-trigger again for fully proportional reverse-throttle control.
