Coming from Pro-Line is the Utility Bed body for Honcho style crawler cabs and BFGoodrich Krawler T/A KX 1.9″ rock terrain truck tyre. Starting with the body shell accessory, the Utility Bed body allows to turn scale crawlers and trail trucks into a chase truck. It fits a wide range of bodies with the bed featuring diamond plating detailing on the top of the bed sides, it sports side storage just like the real thing, and offers plenty of space in the bed to add even more scale accessories. The utility bed works best with smaller diameter scale tyres like Pro-Line’s 1.9″ BFG KO2 tyres but can be trimmed to fit larger rubber if required. The body part comes clear and including a decal sheet with details.
Pro-Line have introduced the 2008 Ford F-250 body shell for solid axle monster trucks as well as the Devastator 2.6″ all terrain tyre. Starting with the body shell, the 2008 edition of the popular F-250 is a direct fit on many solid axle trucks with oversized wheel openings and a moulded toolbox making for a rugged style and attitude. The body comes clear, including window masks and a decals sheet with grille and light details.
Gravity RC have introduced the Touring Car Sidewall Glue Trace kit. The set is used to consistently mark the sidewall of front touring car tyres in preparation for CA glue application, which is used to help prevent grip rolling on carpet. Tracing the outside of the disk with the included paint marker provides you with a consistent and defined line which serves as a visual boundary while applying CA glue up the sidewall. The 58.5mm disc is the recommended trace for lower grip conditions while the 59.5mm disc is the recommended trace for medium to high grip conditions. Included in the kit is one 58.5mm disc, one 59.5mm disk, one silver paint marker, as well as a fastener to secure the disc to the outside of the tyre.
Hot Race Tyres from Italy have introduced their new clay rubber compounds. Developed especially with the demanding clay-type tracks in mind, the rubber will extract the maximum traction and performance from the tyre and it will become available in soft and hard compounds for both the existing range of 1/8th treads and also the new 1/10th buggy tyres.
HRC Distribution have introduced the HRC Racing StreetFighter tyres for 1/10th monster trucks. Utilising 6-spoke rims with 14mm hex adapters, the tyres are a direct fit on the Team Magic E5 series trucks but they also fit a range of other vehicles.
