Exotek RB6 direct spur mount & alloy wing buttons

Exotek have new optional parts available in the form of a direct spur mount for the Kyosho RB6 as well as alloy wing buttons for a range of 1/10th off-road buggies. Starting with the direct spur mount, the slipper eliminator hub fits all RB6 series buggies and truck including the RT6 and SC6 and it is best used in stock class and oval racing where a slipper is not necessarily needed. The lower weight makes for a cooler running motor and the design of the hub let drivers use all Kimbrough-standard spur gears. Due to the simple mounting swapping the hub for the slipper is an easy task when conditions call for it.

Reedy TC Race of Champions control tyre announced

Reedy TC Race of Champions control tyre announced

The Reedy Race announce that the Sweep EXP36 Evo-R has been chosen as the spec tyre for the 2014 Reedy International Touring Car Race of Champions. A total of fifteen compounds from six manufacturers were tested with the EXP36 Evo-R was chosen due to its ability to provide fast lap times, consistent performance from run to run, and quality construction. Invitational class driver Rick Hohwart was among the drivers involved with the tyre testing and provided the following feedback:

Not only did the EXP36 Evo-R turn lap times as fast as I had ever turned at the Tamiya track, but traction was available immediately with no need to wait for the tires to come in before turning competitive lap times. Tire balance was better than any of the other tires tested and the quality of the mounting and gluing is superb.

Pro-Line Blockbuster short course body – Preview

Pro-Line Blockbuster short course body – Preview

Pro-Line Racing have released this preview image of their forthcoming Blockbuster bodyshell for 1/10th short course trucks. The body in questions appears to sport several “full scale” details such as door handles and quick release fasteners along rivets and other gizmos that make the body stand out. Overall the Blockbuster looks to be of quite an “edgy” design comparable to the gnarly Desert Militia bodyshell. Full information will become available very soon.
