Past weekend the Boras MRK hosted round 2 of the WBC Cup at one of the best indoor tracks in Sweden. In 4WD, following the rounds of qualifying Daniel Kobbevik took the overall TQ ahead Hampus Berg 2nd and Alexander Landén 3rd. The first final was very static for a long time where Kobbevik was leading and Alexander was putting a lot of pressure on Hampus. Kobbevik made a mistake and dropped down and Alexander was then running second, but got hit by a car that was re-entering the track and dropped down the field. Eventually he managed to salvage third with Kobbevik taking first and Hampus second.

Schelle B6 Extreme battery strap & shock standoff set

sch1282_1

Schelle Racing Innovations have introduced new Extreme battery strap and shock standoff set for the Team Associated B6 and B6D. First up is the Extreme battery strap made in 2.5mm carbon fiber, made in the USA designed for racers running the B6 laydown configuration on medium to low grip dirt. The low CG and fast cornering of the laydown is fantastic for racing, but many racers need more weight towards the rear for tracks that aren’t grooved up. The profile might remind you of an alien from Space Invaders, but every location you might want or need is included. The pack is held in place by 3-d printed 7mm hex battery stops which are easy to install with a 7mm wheel wrench. Stainless steel screws are included, but you can upgrade to aluminum or Ti to shave weight.
