The cars will pre built and ready to run and will be supplied with the RX battery pack, charger, fuel bottle, glow start and assembling tools. Finishing off the package there is a low profile pre painted body shell in multiple colours and an adjustable wing with aerodynamic diffuser.

RB Balance Charger

RB also have a new charger which can charge 2 packs separately at up to 7A and can handle up to 8S LiPo. The unit features tactile buttons and will come supplied with balancer board and a range of the most common charger cables. RB also have their new wheel balancer, which is suitable for buggy and truggy wheels as well as a handy clutch spring tool to help put the difficult spring on easily.

RB Oval Venturis

Having covered their new line of engines in a previous story, the only new additions to the range of engine parts were a new EFRA2087 exhaust pipe which gives more linear power while maintaining torque throughout the range. Their new set of oval venturis also give the engine more linear power delivery while also being smoother. The shape really helps the fuel delivery and as a result they also help to reduce consumption.
