Hot Bodies Cyclone D4

Our mate Andy at RC Forum has snapped this pic of the prototype Hot Bodies buggy that finished 1st at the buggy pre worlds in Japan last year. The car hasn’t been seen until this point and it looks pretty sweet indeed. It appears to be shaft drive, and have a similar configuration to the JConcepts BJ4. We hope to get more information soon.

Manuel Huber, latest driver to race Xray NT1

Manuel Huber

Xray, never one to hold back, have signed yet another big European name, Manuel Huber, to race their new Xray NT1 200mm gas touring car. The multiple Austrian champion and WC/EC finalist will join the Slovakian team with immediate effect and will line up alongside Groskamp, Christensen, Peracho, LeMieux, Burch and Baker to make a formidable team.

The main reasons for my decision to move to Team XRAY are the independent self-production of every part of the car (the XRAY factory is really amazing!), the possibility for quick changes to different parts, and of course the really great teamwork. After driving the NT1, I found it is much faster than the car I was used to racing.

Motonica P8.0 Base

Motonica P8.0 Base

Yesterday we showed you a preview of the new cars from Motonica which included the R version of the original P8.0 as well as a Classic class pan car. Well now we get a closer look at the P8.0 base, which i couldnt figure out yesterday, and apparently this car is a cheaper starter car based on the original P8.0 4wd car. Although this car is also 4wd from the pictures it appears to have no suspension and no radio plate and must qualify as one of the strangest concepts for a car that i’ve seen in a while.

The BX-1 from Blade Racing

Blade Racing BX-1

Last week we told you about the Italian company Blade and that they were about to introduce a new 1/8th scale buggy, well here it is. If it looks familiar well thats because it is a re branded Jammin X1-CR but with some different material specifications, which should actually make it pretty handy on the dirty stuff. I dont know anything more than that but when i find something out i’ll let you know.

UPDATE: We now have some close up detail shots of the car
