The LRP X12L Short Course 550-size motor is based on the well-known X12 brushless motor series by LRP. The longer “L” version is specially designed for the use in the somewhat heavier 1/10 scale 4WD Short Course trucks and sports adjustable timing, a sintered magnet 13mm rotor and speedy 5.0T winding that adds to the already existing 4.5T and 5.5T variants.
LRP introduce the S10 Blast SC 1/10 scale 4WD electric short course truck. Based on the S10 Blast platform the SC offers a tough 4WD drivetrain, updated chassis and suspension components for both the gravel pit and the race track. Available as RTR or Non-RTR variant the chassis features two gear differentials, CVD front drive shafts, front and rear anti-roll bars, long oil-filled big bore shock absorbers and the RTR variant also a high-torque 540-size electric brushed motor, LRP speed control, LRP A2-STX Sport II transmitter with steering servo and a LRP NiMH battery pack.

Having covered the toy fair in depth for Red RC we decided to bring together all the short course related releases for an easy overview, beginning with Durango. On display at their German distributors stand, the Durango DESC410R was making its public debut. Having written in depth about the car here, its basically a longer and wider version of the successful DEX410, with the chassis is made from a sandwich of materials that creates a strong and very stiff backbone for the car, something that could not have been achieved with the aluminium side skirts used on the 1/10th buggy.
LRP’s revolutionary Vector X-12 brushless motors have set new benchmarks in electric motor performance and now the same level of performance and technology is available for 4×4 Short Course class racing. 4WD Short Course drivers can now take advantage of the World Championship-winning XTEC X-12 technology. With the all new Vector X-12L Short Course 550 motors, developed for 4WD Short Course racing, even more performance is available at your disposal.
LRP have extended their LiPo battery range with these all new power-bars. Instead of increased power, these new packs feature a true innovation, the Multi-Plug-System. Instead of fixed connectors for only one manufacturer’s plug, the new LiPo Power/Hyper Packs have a multi-connection system with which you can use Tamiya, Traxxas or US-Style connectors. LRP have also improved the internals of these brand new batteries, with more capacity than the previous batteries for longer driving fun and 30C discharge current for incredible power. The cells are covered in a hardcase, made of robust synthetic material to avoid damage and improve safety. The bulges at the bottom side make a perfect fit in every car with battery slots also possible. Available in 2600mAh, 3200mAh, 3800mAh and 4600mAh versions.
LRP continues to release different, brand new universal charging leads and LiPo hard case adapter wires for a faster and smoother handling of the charging process. Two new versions are available with a 4mm male plug to Traxxas TRX or Tamiya plug. Ideally suited for all LRP LiPo Power/Hyper Packs with Multi Plug System, the cables are 100mm in length.
LRP have released their new A2-STX Pro 2.4GHz transmitter, a high value for money transmitter complete with high-end features. The little brother of the successful C3-STX 2.4GHz Pro it impresses with its 2.4GHz system through extremely high reliability and transmission security. Features include end point adjustment, fail safe function that sets channel 2 to a defined position in case of a weak or lost radio signal, a 2.4GHz mini 2-channel receiver and ergonomic grip and steering wheel.
