New from Vaterra, the 1/10-scale 2015 Ford Mustang coupe is a one-of-a-kind RC recreation of this landmark automobile. It comes completely assembled and ready to run with the officially licensed body in place. Beneath the exterior is the power and poise of a Vaterra V100-S chassis. Its potent Dynamite power system and shaft-driven 4WD provide a perfect blend of speed, traction and control that make this car a blast to drive right out of the box.

Just in time for the IFMAR Worlds to be held in Florida in less than 3 months we have no information as of yet but we are pretty sure it will be more of a minor update rather than anything too major.

Yokomo have introduced this limited-edition Drift Package DIB ver.2 Premium Kit, a high-end version of the popular DIB series which sports aluminium A-arms and full aluminium bulkheads. The aluminium A-arms, popular amongst expert drifters, consists of a highly-rigid aluminium lower suspension arm and specialized upper bulkhead. Fore/aft direction adjustability of both the upper and lower sections has been improved along with improved flexibility in adjusting the wheelbase and caster angle (adjustable from 0 to 16.6 degrees). The lower rod end attachment has been designed so that the tread can be adjusted with ease to precisely position the wheel. Furthermore, this kit comes standard with the optional grade-up conversion kits 1 & 2 for DIB. With the two conversion kits installed, the front/rear bulkheads and center bulkhead become aluminium parts, contributing to the increased rigidity and high-end aesthetics.

Vaterra introduce the Chevrolet K-5 Ascender 1/10th scale 4WD off-road kit. Resembling one of the most popular 4×4 vehicles of all times, the innovative platform features stamped-steel ladder frames with adjustable wheelbase, a metal gear transmission and a very capable off-road suspension with a 3-link panhard bar front and 4-link rear setup with aluminium links and oil-filled, threaded shock absorbers. The transmission is engineered to handle even high-output power systems and brutal track conditions. A 2-speed transmission is available optionally. The battery tray floats over the front axle and is designed to accept 96mm shorty packs. Placing the weight of the battery over the front axle gives the front tyres extra traction when crawling over rocks and tackling steep inclines. A licensed 1986 K-5 Blazer body and licensed reproductions of Interco Super Swamper tyres are also included.

Following a first teaser some time ago, Serpent now officially introduce the Natrix 748 1/10th 200mm nitro on-road car. Designed by Michael Salven and using input from Serpent’s key team drivers from around the World the 748 is the evolution step of the successful 747. The car makes use of many design features seen on the 1/8th scale Viper 977, such as the fully adjustable steering block system or the throttle linkage. The laydown steering and throttle servos are located in a 1-piece mount and as close to the centreline of the car as possible for improved handling. Also new and centrally mounted is a small radio box with the radio plate sporting a holder for the receiver battery plug that then can act as an on/off switch.
