Novarossi bum bag

Novarossi make great engines but they also make some really cool merchandising too, some of which we have featured before. This new bum bag, or fanny pack for our US readers, comes in this very striking Novarossi blue and features the Novarossi logo on the front with red detailing around the mant storage pockets and thats pretty much it.

The new Crono RS7 buggy

Crono RS7

Last week we confused a spy shot of this new car for the new Associated RC8, but quickly retracted that conclusion after we realised it was actually a new Crono and so here it is, the new RS7. A pretty conventional 1/8th scale buggy from the looks of things but it does use ball joint suspension up front and this particular car has CVDs on all 4 corners.

Check out the full image set here and here to make up your own conclusions.

Xray NT1 first real picture

Xray NT1

I’m sorry for the 3 Xray posts in a row but they have some highly anticipated cars coming out and none more so than the all new Xray NT1 as seen above (click image for larger pic). This car has been majorly hyped and made its small time debut a few weeks back when it won a regional race on its first outing in Florida with the cars international debut comes in 2 weeks at the Florida Winternats. What about the car itself, well from what we can see it bears close similarities to the Mugen MTX and Kyosho RRR in looks at least, whilst the car itself looks pretty safe in design with no major, Team Magic style, innovation. We hope to get more details and pics later.
