Hat-tip to RCNews.de for these pics of Hitec‘s upcoming Lynx 4S frequency-hopping 2.4GHz radio system, which will put the brand back on the pro-pistol map.

Pro-Line’s Phantom buggy-body lineup is about to include its first 1/8 scale shell, designed specifically for the Tekno EB48.2. The Phantom’s cab-forward styling is in full effect, and a removable stability fin is in place. You can expect the usual genuine GE Lexan construction with overspray film, window masks, and decals.
JConcepts has a new set of titanium turnbuckles for Associated’s RC10 Worlds Car re-release, and as you can see, they look pretty rad with their three-slot styling and classic ti-luster.
