RPM Blitz in-line steering blocks

RPM Blitz in-line steering blocks

We reported previously on RPM’s new rear bearing carriers for the HPI Blitz and Firestorm lines of vehicles that incorporated 5x11mm bearings, improving durability and performance significantly. That same bearing size is now available for the front end of those same vehicles, with their new in-line steering blocks incorporating a 5x11mm bearing, which has nearly twice the dynamic load rating as the stock 5x10mm bearing, making a strong truck nearly bulletproof. These blocks incorporate all stock geometry for a perfect fit and are molded from the company’s ultra durable blend of nylons for a significant improvement in durability and strength as well.

Phillip Atondo double win at Novarossi Challenge

Phillip Atondo double win at Novarossi Challenge

This past weekend was the Novarossi challenge at Riverfront RC and Phillip Atondo and his crew put together a fabulous race track. The people in northern Ca. really know how to have a good time at a race. It’s a really nice track with trees in the pit area and a super nice motocross track behind the driver stand. The event was a two day event with three rounds of qualifying on Saturday and mains on Sunday. Team Losi driver Phillip Atondo would take TQ in both Buggy and Truggy over Team Losi’s Team Manager Kevin Gahan that made the trip up North to support the race. When mains day came Phillip would put in two great runs to win both buggy and truggy over Kevin Gahan which would be runner up in both classes.
