Coming from Team Redcat is the TR-MT10E 1/10th scale 4WD ready-to-run monster truck. The vehicle is equipped with durable, reinforced differentials, hardened steel driveshafts, high-quality ball bearings throughout, durable long travel suspension, offroad front bumper with working LEDs, and it comes factory-equipped with a 4400kv brushless motor and waterproof Hobbywing Max10 3S LiPo-compatible controller along a genuine metal gear Savöx steering servo. The truck is ready-to-run and includes a pre-painted bodyshell, available in dark grey or orange design.
Roche have introduced their Rapide P10W 235mm 1/10th scale pan car kit. Building on the 200mm variant the car makes use of a 3mm high-grade carbon fibre main chassis plate and lower pod plate, and it allows for extensive wheelbase settings with ±2mm being achievable using the front lower alloy suspension block and additional ±1.5mm are available using the front graph suspension plate. Other features include a ball-raced rack-type steering system, quick adjust Ackermann, fully adjustable Xenon-made front suspension, a big bore centre and lightweight micro side dampers as well as a floating steering servo mount for low-profile and mini-size servos. The chassis itself allows for a range of battery configurations including inline standard and shorty packs as well as transversally mounted shorties. The link-type kit furthermore comes with a range of options such as a differential thrust race, 64 pitch 93T Xenon Racing main gear as well as a 30mm cooling fan mount and low-friction pivot balls and ball studs.
Axial have introduced their all new SMT10 Grave Digger Monster Jam 1/10th scale 4WD ready-to-run straight-axle truck. Resembling the iconic Grave Digger full-scale truck, the 1/10th kit was developed for maximum strength and an extremely detailed appearance. The chassis offers many pivot points for suspension tuning while realism and strength are achieved through triangulation of the chassis tubes, making it ready for maximum attack and hardcore Monster Truck bashing. Part of the package are also the AR60 OCP-Axles that are constructed from high strength composite material which has a low flex rate but is not as brittle as standard glass filled nylon. The combination of these axles and a true 4-link suspension gives optimal performance for any terrain with the look of a real full-scale vehicle.
Following up on first teaser images we now have all details and images of TLR’s new TEN-SCE 3.0 1/10th scale 4WD short course truck available. The kit builds on the proven 2.0 and features an optimised suspension to make the truck easier to drive in all conditions. Included are Gen II shocks, known from the 22 platform, to reduce overall weight and lower the CG. Machined shock internals, X-rings, TiCN shock shafts and aluminium bleeder caps provide a smoother, more consistent shock. The truck lands better, jumps better, corners quicker and has a lighter, more nimble feel.
UK PR Racing distributors Inside Line Racing have released first images and information on the forthcoming PRS1 V3 MM 1/10th scale 2WD buggy. The kit will include a “stand up” 3-gear transmission, making it ideal for low to medium grip tracks such as dirt and wet astroturf. The updated chassis design also allows the use of inline or transversally mounted batteries in order to fine-tune weight distribution. More information about the kit’s features and specifications will become available in time for the release.
Team Losi Racing will soon have their new TEN-SCTE 3.0 1/10th scale 4WD short course truck available, given first “leaked” images. So far nothing is known about the features and specifications but a first chassis image indicates new 22-style shock absorbers with short springs as well as lightweight carbon fibre shock towers. More information and images will become available in tome for the official release.

Following first teaser images released yesterday, Kyosho have issued more detailed photos of the forthcoming RB6.6 1/10th 2WD off-road buggy. Based off of a longer wheelbase chassis the car’s most important feature is the very versatile gearbox layout with a rear motor and a total of three mid motor configurations, – including 3-gear, 4-gear, and laydown – being usable right out of the box. Beside the changeable transmission design the buggy also allows for a range of battery configurations to be run as are inline or transversally mounted shorty LiPos in mid motor as well as straight and saddle packs for the mid and rear motor layouts. The suspension components are taken over from the previous RB6 by the looks of things and the kit comes with a new high-downforce body to fit the 13mm longer chassis.
