HPI Racing’s Q32 line of micro ready-to-run vehicles is getting an addition in the form of the new Q32 Trophy Truggy. The palm-sizes truck is based off of the Q32 D8T Tessmann Edition micro truggy and it features Real Steer technology for a precise steering control and utilises a single arm front suspension and a solid axle rear end. The internal battery can be charged using the transmitter or an external USB device and the truggy is rounded out by grippy foam tyres and a pre-painted and pre-decorated truck body and rear wing.
Ripmax have introduced the Across 1/12th scale 4WD RTR rock crawler. Factory-assembled the vehicle features an independent front suspension with laydown shock absorbers as well as a rigid rear axle construction for that ultimate scale look. To this add a fluorescent roll cage, colourful body panels and grippy all-terrain rock crawler tyres on beadlock design rims. The Across is powered by a brushed motor and it comes including a 1500mAh LiPo battery and 230V fast charger.
Hot on the heels of Losi’s 8ight-T RTR truggy comes the 8ight Nitro RTR buggy. Using a 4mm T6 aluminium main chassis plate as a solid base, the vehicle also utilises the proven 8ight suspension parts of its ROAR nationals winning 8ight race sibling but it comes with pre-set suspension settings thanks to fixed suspension links. A 3-gear shaft-driven drivetain makes for exceptional traction in all track conditions and fluid-filled shock absorbers soak up hard landings and rough terrain. The buggy comes with the Gen II radio tray for longer servo life, front universal driveshafts, anti-roll bars front and rear, a pull-start .21 engine and also including a pre-painted bodyshell and pre-glued high traction tyres. Also included with the factory-assembled vehicle come genuine Spektrum metal gear servos, and a DX2E 2.4GHz radio system.

Adjustable 15mm oil-filled shock absorbers soak up even the roughest of terrain and a Dynamite .28 pull-starter engine delivers loads of oomph. The truggy is rounded out by waterproof Spektrum metal gear servos, a Dynamite 1600mAh receiver battery and a Spektrum DX2E 2.4GHz radio system as well as a pre-painted bodyshell and pre-glued tyres.
