Duratrax is Now in the Paint Biz

Duratrax is Now in the Paint Biz

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 […]

Hobby Pro USA’s PRS1 buggy, which we reviewed back in our January issue, not only received an update for the 2014 season but is now available as a rolling chassis, the first in a new “Pro-Built” lineup of vehicles – which makes this 2WD offroad racer one of the few chances you may ever have […]

Lights, Camera, FIRE!

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 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). Otherwise, the car is fully equipped with a Trackstar 45amp, 3000KV power system and high-torque servo. The all-plastic, front-motor […]

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 […]

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

Now this is ingenious! Pro-Line‘s Blockbuster body is built for video (Blockbuster video, get it?) and designed to carry a GoPro camera in its hollowed-out cab (which also appears to do a good job of protecting the GoPro). In the middle pic, you can see the molded-in dashboard that gives Blockbuster-based videos a real “in-car” […]

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

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 […]
