Avid Press Clear Servo Tape

Avid Press Clear Servo Tape

From Avid:
Avid’s Clear Double Sided Servo Tape will keep all your electronics secured to whatever you need and at $8 it is a steal because it is 10 feet (9 meters) long instead of the 40 inch (1 meter) versions out there. We also used a small 1″ plastic tube instead of the larger 3″ in order to take up less space in your tool box.

Raw Speed Slick 1/8 Buggy Tires

Raw Speed Slick 1/8 Buggy Tires

From Raw Speed RC:
HERE’S THE SCOOP!

All molds begin as slicks.

Every time we design a new tire mold we need to check many different tolerances to insure the mold will function properly.

Once we have confirmed that the mold functions perfectly, we can then finish the manufacturing process by adding tread, logos and part numbers.

So with that said, the cat is out of the bag. We are proud to announce our new 1/8 buggy slick and we are happy to tell you that there are new 1/8 tread patterns coming soon.

Let’s go racing!

Clay compound available NOW.

Soft and Super Soft available later this week.

#180106SB – Soft (Yellow) – $23.25
#180106SSB – Super Soft (Green) – $23.25
#180106CB – Clay (White) – $23.25
