MIP Alum Nuts & Bypass1 Team Tuned Kit For TLR/Losi SCTE

Latest from MIP:






MIP Pro4mance 5-40 Alum. Nuts, All TLR/Losi SCTE


Racecars are confronted with a wide variety of issues that can affect performance. It is commonly understood that weight is the enemy in race vehicles. In theory, the heavier the car is the slower it will go. Heavier vehicles experience a reduction in overall speed caused by increased friction with the ground. Acceleration and deceleration is also affected. By simply swapping out the stock nuts, a significant savings in weight over the entire vehicle is attainable. In fact, when comparing the lightweight MIP set of 26 nuts to the heavier stock sets, the saved weight is around 9.344 grams (4.990 grams aluminum vs. 14.334 grams steel). Yes, the functional benefits such as protecting your vehicle from corrosive rust are noteworthy, but the new silver-toned MIP Pro4mance Aluminum Nuts will also turn heads at the track. Dominate the podium and look good doing it with MIP.

FEATURES:
  • Removes more than 9 grams of weight from your vehicle!
  • Includes 26 Nuts to convert TLR 2.0, Losi SCTE 1.0, or MIP Pro4mance Package (MIP#12220)
  • Direct replacement from stock steel nuts; All in 1 Pro4mance Upgrade Package!
  • Made from Aircraft Grade Aluminum!

INCLUDES:
  • 5-40 aluminum locknut (26)
  • MIP confetti sticker

COMPATIBILITY:
  • TLR SCTE 2.0
  • Losi SCTE 1.0
  • MIP Pro4mance Package

#13245 MIP Pro4mance 5-40 Alum. Nuts, All TLR/Losi SCTE (26):
MSRP: $20.00







BYPASS1™ Team Tuned Kit, TLR SCTE 2.0


It’s long been known that suspension is critical for a vehicle’s handling on a track, but the internals of these shocks are often accepted blindly and stuck in old technology. Based on Full-Scale Valve Technology, this innovative MIP Bypass1™ Team Tuned Kit was designed and developed by the MIP racing and engineering team. The kit will elevate your suspension efficiency to a level that can be felt on the track and more importantly result in lower lap times. Instead of having the oil in your shocks react the same way in both compression and rebound, you can now tune those characteristics with MIP's Piston in conjunction with MIP's Valves (.003, .005, .007, .010) to produce favorable characteristics on the track. Keep in mind that since any piston is an object moving through a liquid, hydrodynamics can not be ignored. So if you are stuck in the ‘ol 2-hole, 3-hole, 1.6mm, yada yada days of standard pistons, now might be the time to evolve your ride with MIP Bypass1™ piston technology.

Specifically designed for TLR SCTE 2.0 based vehicles, tuning will reveal that there are infinite combinations and possibilities that the MIP Bypass1™ Team Tuned Kit provides. Typical to MIP products, quality is top notch and manufactured right here in the USA! Only bearing grade plastics are used for the pistons that were subjected to an exhausting series of dyno testing and on-track 1st place results. In fact the MIP Factory Team has over 20+ 1st Place wins at major events across the country in the SC 4x4 Class. Specifically tailored to handle a spectrum of race conditions. RealShocks.com. MIPonline.com. Patents-pending USA and abroad.

FEATURES:
  • Full Scale Valve Technology engineered for RC Race Cars!
  • Precision machined pistons made from bearing grade plastics.
  • Octagon shaped pistons reduce drag while keeping the piston guided in the shock bore!
  • Dyno tested to match the rebound flow of stock pistons.
  • Infinite valve adjustability!
  • Comes with “Fast” “Medium” “Slow” & “Gap” Valves to tune your entire vehicle!
  • 100% Quality made in the USA!

INCLUDES:
  • Stop Washer (4)
  • Aluminum Locknut (4)
  • MIP Bypass1 Piston #07 (4)
  • Valve Cup
  • MIP .003"x .120x .43 #13 Valve Green (4)
  • MIP .005"x .120x .43 #15 Valve Blue (4)
  • MIP .007"x .120x .43 #16 Valve Matte (4)
  • MIP .010"x .43 #17 Valve Brown
  • Instruction sheet
  • MIP confetti sticker
  • MIP Real Shocks decal sheet.

COMPATIBILITY:
  • TLR 2.0
  • Losi 1.0
  • MIP Pro4mance Package

#13205 MIP BYPASS1™ Team Tuned Kit, TLR SCTE 2.0:
MSRP: $32.00

If that's the case, it sounds a bit steep.

There's always the off-chance that they're a higher quality unit from MIP, but most likely it's due to overhead and quantity expected to buy/sell.

The RC4Less will be required mail-order for everyone, where there's at least a small chance your local hobby shop will have the MIP ones on the shelf. If you're at a race and need the nuts, RC4Less won't be able to help a whole lot.

You can buy just the nuts from RC4Less and pay shipping for that one item and still be ahead.

If you are at a race chances are good someone will have a 5-40 steel nut. I really can't think of any scenario except a top level pro race where the differnce in weight between an aluminum nut (or two) and a steel nut would make a difference. Even then, the weight of one or two nuts being the difference between 1st and 2nd really stretches the imagination.

Yeah they'll probably have 5-40 steel nuts also. I was halfway missing the point that it was for aluminum nuts.

Still, if it's all that's on the shelf and the main is coming up, then that's what will likely go on the car!

I do agree that it seems expensive though... Just, if it's there and available, there you go!
