Introducing a completely new brand to the line-up – AEROX!

Nov 8 2017

The AEROX brand will bring new ‘Premium RC Equipment’ to the table and their first product is this awesome looking body to fit the Schumacher Cougar KC and KD models.

The new body is designed to improve the Aero package of the Cougar KD and particularly KC models.

The body has a super sleek design, is 13 grams lighter than a standard kit body which greatly reduces the Centre of Gravity and the chances of traction roll on high grip surfaces.

Michal Orlowski used it to great effect at the recent EOS in Poland claiming 4th place from 3rd on the grid.

Michal had the following to say about the new body;

“The new Aerox bodyshell feels great to drive. Car is more agile and rolls round less so it makes you feel more confident. That makes you faster on the track. And it looks awesome too!”

Supplied in crystal clear polycarbonate with over-spray film, window masks and cool Aerox decal sheet.

Martin Bayer chooses HUDY

Nov 7 2017

Martin has started his RC car career as only 6 year old kid visiting local and national races with his father. For Martin RC racing has been number one priority from his start and despite his successes also in another motorsports Martin chooses to stay with RC cars. Seems that this was a very good decision for Martin as he was able to collect dozens of trophies including 17x Czech Republic Champion and European Champion. Moreover Martin has become an RC car designer in one of the prestigious RC companies where besides Juraj Hudy perfects every detail on new products and knows how every tenth of millimeter counts. In this minimalistic & perfectionist environment is HUDY Martin Bayer’s only choice.

From early beginnings Martin has been following Juraj’s work and admiring quality & precise design of his products. With the rising competition level Martin has learned that only 100% RC car preparation could put him at the same starting line with other top drivers, who prepare their cars with the same patience as everyone who wants to achieve the best results. “You need to focus fully not only on the track but also during wrenching, it’s easy to build something wrong without a notice.“ Answering what is a must have to prepare his cars perfectly „Every equipment helps you to achieve a perfect result. My favorite are HUDY set-up board, HUDY tools and for sure new HUDY set-up ride height gauge.“

4 New Products Released from Schelle Racing

Oct 31 2017

B64 Front Top Deck, Type 3 Steering Arms and TLR 22 Diff Rebuild/Refresh Kits

4 new products release this week, all available now! 2 for theTeam Associated B64 and 2 for the TLR
22 platform.

The Schelle B64 Front Top Deck will become a must-have accessory for racers. Racers will love the
driving feel: With the top deck the car turns, sets, and exits in a smooth arc. The new flex
characteristics make the front end more predictable and consistent. In testing, drivers were able to do
more fast laps and less crashes. Put short, it inspires confidence to push your car. Once you run this
part, you won’t want to take it off your car.

Features:
1. CNC machined 2.5mm Carbon Fiber.
2. 4 stainless steel mount screws included.
3. Consistent and predictable chassis flex in cornering.
4. Fits B64 and B64D.

B64 Type 3 steering arms are a slight tweak on the geometry of our Type 1 blocks to gain more stability
on tracks with larger sweeping turns. The Type 3 mimic the shorter leverage and quick reaction of
Type 1, but with a more mellow Ackermann that is suited for flowing tracks when you need less steering
and to stay smooth. The holes are a replica location of adapting the B6 steering arms onto a B64,
while still keeping the kit steering stops.
You may ask…what about Type 2? Those are still in development, not ready for prime-time yet!
For TLR owners, we have the SCH1391 Pro-Built Refresh and Rebuild differential kits. The rebuild kit
comes complete with the same parts and precision grade 3/32” Tungsten Carbide diff balls (14),
ceramic caged thrust, rings, spring and t-nut we use on our Pro-Built MIP Bi-Metal TLR complete diffs.
If you’re looking for just a refresh, the SCH1390 kit contains: Tungsten Carbide balls (14), rings, and
new diff spring for that in-between maintenance.
