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

Blade Racing to introduce Buggy

Blade Racing to introduce Buggy

Italian manufacturer Blade Racing, best known for their Rally Game cars, have announced that they will introduce a new 1/8th scale buggy into the market when they release their new off roader. Nothing more is known about this project other than it will more than likely be shown for the first time at the Nurnberg toy fair at the start of next month. This is yet another manufacturer entering this over crowded market bringing the number of manufacturers to 32, all fighting for a piece of the action.
