JConcepts Fin Turnbuckles for Associated RC10 Worlds Car

JConcepts Fin Turnbuckles for Associated RC10 Worlds Car

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. Some purists will no doubt say, “those are not period-correct for the car,” and if that’s you then you can stick with Associated’s black-steel stockers. But if […]

Vaterra Adds ’69 Corvette to V100-S Lineup

Vaterra’s ample on-road line has a new addition in the form of this nicely proportioned ’69 ‘Vette, officially dubbed the “1969 Chevy Custom Corvette.” The car is officially licensed from GM, and the “custom” is likely a nod to the wheel and tire combo, which is definitely not 1969 spec–but gives the ‘Vette a potent […]

Associated Chassis Conversion Kits for B5 and B5M

Associated Chassis Conversion Kits for B5 and B5M

Team Associated bucked the trend of convertible-chassis 2WD buggies, instead choosing to offer dedicated rear-motor (B5) and mid-motor (B5M) platforms. Since most racers build their cars as either rear-motor or mid-motor and leave them that way, Associated determined the compromises required to make a single car work both ways weren’t worth it–hence the B5 and […]
