Japanese company ABC Hobby, best known for their extraordinary polycarbonate bodyshells, have introduced the Grande Gambado Nissan GT-R LM Nismo 1/10th scale FWD kit. The front wheel drive car is based off of the proven Grande Gambado 190mm chassis that uses a 2.5mm FRP main chassis plate, a front motor design with the power plant sitting behind the front axle and the chassis utilises a separate damper and spring setup. The car is topped off by a replica Nissan GT-R LM Nismo bodyshell; he full-scale counterpart was best known for its popular yet unsuccessful 2015 Le Mans LMP1 class appearance.
New from Exotek Racing for the ABC Hobby Genetic chassis is this high performance, super narrow and lightweight chassis conversion called GXR. The new setup allows for more LiPo battery options, accepting round or square type flat bottomed 7.4v LiPo packs including Thunder Power, IB and Orion. The narrowed carbon fibre chassis reduces chassis scrub for better handling and more corner speeds yet plenty of room to mount electronics, while the narrow carbon fibre 1 piece top deck reduces tweak and allows just enough flex to increase overall traction.
Japanese company ABC Hobby have released the latest addition to their product range with the release of the EXDS, Expert Discharger. With the ability to discharge from 4 to 12 cells, this microprocessor controlled system has a maximum discharge rate of 10A while a linear discharge rate helps stabilize the cells. The unit sports a 2-line LCD screen that shows real time voltage levels, while on top is a fan cooled platform for placing your batteries during discharge. A sensor in the unit can also detect whether the cells are getting abnormally hot and if so will stop the discharge.
ABC Hobby, of Japan, have announced the upcoming release of this new mini 1/10th scale chassis, the strangely named Genetic Naked S.

Featuring 4wd through a central shaft the car has a twin deck chassis and sports front and rear ball diffs as well as a neat lexan spur gear cover. Available in June.
