Greyscale Racing MRCG chassis

Greyscale Racing MRCG chassis

Back in July we showed you a CAD image of the Greyscale Racing MRCG project which was intended from the very beginning to create the most effective chassis to ever compete in 1/28 RC car racing as well as to be a user-friendly, versatile machine that maximizes the driver’s potential on any given track. Greyscale have now released the first images of the prototype which is based on Kyosho’s proven Mini-Z MR02 platform, and it is a completely new chassis from the ground up that combines smart engineering with specially-chosen materials to gain an edge in the budding market of 1/28 open-class competition.

Team Magic have released their latest version of their G4 chassis, the G4JS, which is targeted at the racer who is interested in getting into gas race racing but is conscious of his or her budget. The total cost of getting into on road gas racing can be quite frightening for many so the new G4JS is giving many the opportunity to race a championship winning chassis for minimal cost. The carbon fiber and alloy parts have been stripped from the car, but what really matters is what is still included, great suspension geometry, super low center of gravity and a unique chassis design which gives the G4 its two time European Championship winning feel.

Wilck & Maddison win DHI Cup

Modified Class Podium

Viktor Wilck has won the modified class here at the DHI Cup after a great run in the 3rd and last leg of the A-final. Quicker than Teemu Leino from the start, he began to hound the Xray racer until they actually hit before both continuing. Shortly after the Finnish racer made a mistake going onto the straight, rolling over the dots and causing his body to stick up over the wheel. Once this happened Wilck was able to pull out a commanding lead and this also allowed Hagberg, Volker and Graversen through.
