Italian site RC Bazar was present at last weekends Hobby Model Expo show at the Novegro Exhibition Center in Milan, Italy. While the event was for all types of hobby products including trains and planes etc, there was a number of RC car manufacturers, mostly Italian, present and showing off some of their products. The picture above is from the BP Racing stand, a company that we know from their BP engines but they also make other things too including these 1/8th scale rally game optionals that include the fanciest rear anti roll bar ever as well as an aluminium rear diff pulley and many other parts.

Team Magic have shown their E4 1/10th electric touring car at iHobby Expo in Chicago this week. Billed as the ‘Most advanced EP car’ according to their show label in the pictures from RCForum.co.kr, it seems advanced should be replaced with the word complicated. This is one seriously complex looking car, featuring a three belt system similar to a gas on road car, it also sports a 3×3 center mounted battery configuration. In fact replace the motor with an engine and the batteries with a fuel tank and you have a 1/10th scale gas on roader. Maybe considering their success with their T4 in winning the 1/10th Euros with Dario Balestri, this could be the intention.
Whilst iHobby Expo takes place in Chicago this week, Japan have their Plamodel Radi-con show (directly translated name, hope its right). As you would expect from our far eastern friends they have some really cool products on display as well as some strange things too. I have supplied some links to Japanese sites that are covering the show so you can get a feel of whats coming our way in the not too distant future.
