HMS Group C P-Type Pro 10 body shell

SF Modellsport have introduced the next generation of Pro 10 body shell, the HMS Group C P-Type. The P-Type was especially developed for modern Pro 10’s with brushless motors. A flush and gently forward pulled driver’s cabin enables an ideal flow of air to the rear wing, while the long front end generates optimal downforce at the front axle. Small edges over the rear wheel arches connected to the large end plates of the rear wing give a very stable handling. Available in May, the shell is made from 1mm thick lexan and comes with a protective overspray film.

Tamiya TRF 2wd protoype buggy

Seen competing for the first time at the Yatabe International off road GP a few weeks ago, and at a few other locations since, Tamiya are showing off some details on their new prototype TRF 2wd buggy. A pretty standard affair in a class where big steps forward in terms of development is difficult, it is a rear mounted motor configuration, fully adjustable shocks all round, rear universal shafts, a ball diff and a new body and wing. Tamiya will be releasing more details, as well as some chassis shots, of the new car in the near future.
