We don't usually get excited by mere turnbuckles, but these new Revo links are hardly "mere turnbuckles." Check 'em out at the RC Zone BB.

The Monster GT now has a bigger stomp, now that Associated has bored it out to a full 4.6cc (.28ci). To help the MGT handle the extra thump,there are new steel gears in the 2-speed tranny and beefed-up CV axles spin the wheels. Talk about it here.

LRP Quantum Competition 3 Wins Worlds

The QC3 isn’t out yet, but it’s already a winner. Ryan Cavalieri used the new speed control to win the IFMAR World Championship 4WD class. According to LRP's Jurgen Lautenenbach, the QC3 was born after testing at the Worlds warm-up race, where track conditions required the ultimate in smooth, precise throttle control. In addition to an even smoother feel, the QC3 will feature 6 throttle profiles, three specific to off-road and three just for touring cars. Look for a review of the QC3 in RC Car Action soon.

CEN's new high-performance ready-to-run nitro sedan, the CT4S, is based on the new CT4R design. The car is built for speed and includes CEN's new big-block .15 'Lightning' engine and an adjustable, lightweight, 2-speed transmission. Any .21-class engine can be bolted directly into the CT4S using optional parts. A 3-speed conversion kit is in the works, too, if you just gotta go faster
Yokomo gets belted! New MR-4TC BD

Yokomo gets belted! New MR-4TC BD

After a long run with the MR-4TC SD (shaft drive), Yokomo is going the way of belt drive with the new MR-4 TC BD, which predictably means, "belt drive." Car Action Magazine just learned of this new touring car from Yokomo, but we're warned that the car pictured is a prototype. Yokomo's goal with the new machine when it reaches production, is to have a car that appeals to drivers that want the best equipment available. It apparently is for those with a fat wallet too, reportedly selling for 53,130 Yen, which would put it in the $500+ range in the US.
