The AK Race Sticks grip your thumb, and the index finger rolls nicely in the groove. Once you try them, your race lap times will be faster. Highly recommended upgrade to your original sticks.
These are an improved 2017 version to the original AG Thumb Sticks.
The new Race Sticks have a sleeker feel, and also brings your index finger closer to the thumb. The overall height of the sticks have been lowered to give more agile performance in high speed racing. This allows less movement to cover the entire range of the gimbal. With racing setups going more towards lower rates, these sticks work better with today's racing needs.
BIG THANKS to my friend Justin G for his help with the M9HALL gimbals! Race Sticks and gimbal protector for the M9HallGimbals have been uploaded. These upgraded gimbals have larger threads/shafts. All test prints and photos of the M9HALL version thanks to Justin.
I printed the sticks with PLA or PETG. I tried printing them with TPU but the hole tolerances are quite different with a more common filament like PLA - so these files are not optimized for TPU.
TPU RACE STICKS
These sticks keep evolving because as my skills as a racer improves - i'm finding more things that work towards improving my lap times. It's actually pretty crazy how such a subtle change in shape or height can affect how your quad handles in fast speed cornering. So here is the latest version of my race sticks. this is to be printed in TPU only. The sticks are smaller and shorter in height.
