Now normally I wouldn’t write about such cars as I find them a bit toyish, but these ones are cute and are made by the grandaddy of RC competition, Team Associated, so they are deserving of mention. The RC18R is a little 1/18th scale electric rally car that is based on Associated’s popular and already available ready-to-run 1/18th scale buggies and truggies but then are adapted to suit the narrower width.

The Japanese 1/12th Nationals are over and it was Kitazawa that took the win followed by Matsumoto in 2nd and Arai who took the final step on the podium in 3rd.
