We’ve sneak-peeked Pro-Line’s vintage F-100 shell before, now it’s officially released and definitely lookin’ good. The body arrives clear so you can choose your own look, but we’re especially fond of the painted-on-the-outside and weathered version Pro-Line has shown for inspiration. The flat paint really does a great job of showing off how crisply molded [...]

It appears Revell’s new Dromida cars are not merely ready-to-run, but ready to run away. As the video below shows, three of the cars managed to burst free of their packaging, escape the Hobbico warehouse, and invade a suburban home where they cleverly (and magically) disguised themselves as gifts.

Expect an official press release next week, but for now we’ve got the inside scoop on Traxxas’ upcoming Low-CG conversion chassis for the 2WD Slash (along with some pretty good iPhone pics).

You can now add Helion to the roster of brands with a 2WD short-course truck, now that the Volition is set to hit stores. The brushed-motor RTR looks like it should be a competent performer with its 12T 550 powerplant, included 7-cell NiMH battery, and 2.4GHz radio system. We’ll have a full review in RC Car [...]
Team Associated rocked the RC world back in June when they announced that the 1984 gold-tub RC10 would be returning as a re-issued, limited-production model later in the year. Dubbed the RC10 Classic, the A-Team showed off a preproduction version of the car at RCX and it has been eagerly anticipated since. Our full review [...]

The big-bore shocks are very big indeed at 16mm, quick-access diffs speed maintenance, new rear arms fine-tune the suspension geometry, and the diffs are lighter for quicker spool-up–plus, scads of other details you’ll find in the highly detailed press info on [...]
