1994 was a pretty wild year. Michael Bolton AND Snoop Dog both made the Billboard Hot 100. At the movies, there was The Mask, Ace Ventura Pet Detective, and Dumb and Dumber (clearly, it was Jim Carrey’s breakout year). It was also the 15th anniversary of the Happy Meal, so yeah, pretty awesome. As for RC Car Action, we were in [...]

Duratrax has announced a new line of spray and bottle paints for lexan bodies–just in time, since the Pactra Racing Finish polycarbonate paint line has been discontinued by Testors. As Duratrax notes, their new spray cans are larger than the size Pactra offered(4.5 oz. versus Pactra’s 3 oz.), so you get more spray for your pay. See below for [...]
