RPM introduce these caster and spindle blocks for Traxxas Slash 4×4 based vehicles. They are designed to increase the strength and durability of the front axle assembly not only by making use of PRM’s well-known nylon material but also by sporting a completely new design. The core design of the caster blocks revolve around the lower-case ‘H’ structure which provides extreme rigidity to keep camber and caster setting locked in place while running normally while the used material provides extra toughness when needed. The blocks are usable on all Traxxas Slash 4×4 based vehicles including the Stampede 4×4 and 1/10th Rally car.

Not really of a racing subject but cool to look at are two new Pro-Line body shells for the Traxxas 1:16 Revo truck. First up is the Rat Rod body, a low-profile soft top roadster with large front grille. The crude looking shell comes with custom pinstripe-style stickers and grill/headlight decals. The second new body is the Desert Militia, again for the 1:16 Revo. Combining several military vehicle designs the body sports huge fenders to clear the oversized race tires and massive suspension travel. The back of the vehicle has been enclosed with quick release panels to hide the spare tires, fuel cell and oil coolers. A final touch is the full width roof mounted light bar.

When racing on a loamy or top soil track surface, the inside of the Low CG Slash or Rally chassis can become loaded with dirt or debris which creates extra weight. With the JConcepts over-tray these worries are minimized with the simple and functional over-tray. Fitting nicely under the body it hugs the outside dimension of the Low CG Slash and Rally chassis protecting the inside from unwanted excess dirt and debris build-up during racing conditions. The over-tray is built with extra height and rake to provide extra room for various electrical and battery configurations.
