Pro-Line’s new Blockbuster video-ready body is getting a lot of buzz, and it should only get buzzier with the release of PL’s new video for the shell (which you can see by clicking any of the images below).

Hobby King Announces Low-Dollar Drifter

Hobby King‘s latest low-low-low priced ride is The Devil, a drift-specific machine that arrives “almost ready to run” (ARR), leaving the battery and transmitter/receiver choice to you (you also get to clip the ring-toss body posts).

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 […]

Exclusive: Pro-Line’s GoPro-Ready Blockbuster Revealed

Pro-Line To Offer Short-Wheelbase “Indoor” Chassis For Pro-2

When I reviewed the Pro-Line PRO-2 for the cover story of our February issue I raved about the truck’s stability in the open desert, and how that composure led to me drive aggressively on the racetrack as well. My SoCal cohort Joel Navarro and I have logged plenty of race time with our PRO-2 test truck […]

Two popular nitro models from Mugen Seiki and Serpent go electric

Two new vehicles that rolled across our desks this week came from two very well-established nitro racing manufacturers – which is why it was surprising that both were electric. Actually, the Mugen Seiki MBX7T ECO isn’t too big of a surprise, since it’s a follow-up on both the nitro-powered truck based on the current IFMAR […]
