New adapter for MiniZ slot rim axles

PN Slot has launched on the market a new adapter for Grupo Z slot cars. These cars use a 3mm axle system with being screwed at the tips, something that had made it impossible to set up a wide range of miniz rims on these cars. An adapter functions in a very simple and effective way by converting any MiniZ rim into slot rims adaptable to typical 3mm axles.

The advantage of this system is that we can change the width of our car simply by changing the rim and incorporating the rim offset that best suits our needs whether it may be in positive or negative format.

The adapter has been made using high quality aluminium and anodized in orange colour and it´s screw for fastening it to the axle is 3mm.
For your information, there are numerous brands and rim models for the MiniZ that you could no doubt adapt to your Group Z or Rally Slot 1:24 cars.

New Pinions for the MiniZ MR02

We have launched some new motor pinions on the market  with the hopes of finding some simple solutions for the everyday problems that these small parts can cause.

We have launched Delrin pinions with a new shape in the pinion teeth, a step closer to zero friction with the crown,  these 7T, 8T, 9T y 10T pinions have a reduced tolerance with the motor axle and pinion, thus making it difficult to come loose unless the material is heated and dilates.  

Here´s a video in which David will explain these as well as other details about the pinions.

Photon Chassis, News

We have received word from the manufacturer that soon we´ll have the new TOP (Photon) Chassis. It is expected to be launched on the market  worldwide towards the end of May.

Its worth mentioning that the production of the chassis is going according to planned and there haven´t been any incidents during this process.

An additional point  brought to our attention is that the TOP photon chassis will be going for a price similar to that of the previous one, although in this plastic version the plastic used to make the different components will be of a much greater quality than its predecessor. The aim of the manufacturer is to be able to offer the customer a quality product at a reduced price,  just as has been done up until now.

It is for the reason that in the light of this chassis being a good option for competitions, we have created a PRE-ORDER space where you can hold items and therefore be the first to get your car as soon as its launched.

To do a PRE-ORDER, send an email with your personal information and telephone number to: photon@trp.cc. This email address is protected against spam robots and requires an activated javascript to view it.
