Reds Racing 2113 X-One Pro pipe

Reds Racing has released a new Pro version of their off-road 2113 X-ONE Torque Pipe.  Combining REDS 2113 Pipe and M Manifold to create this one-piece ‘High Power’ exhaust, the new X-ONE PRO exhaust has been produced with a dark grey hard coated treatment to increase its strength. The new exhaust guarantees smoother power output at low RPM and higher mid range power and top speed. Reds Racing was the first company to bring this innovative and unique X-ONE system to the market and thanks to the experience of their engineers and team, they are taking it to levels never seen before. The system is an innovative and unique all-in-one pipe-manifold system. The pipe has been welded to the manifold to improve performance and fuel consumption. With this X-ONE configuration there is no need for springs or gaskets, and the one piece design creates increased reliability and improved tuning stability.

Kavan 1:18 & 1:24 Mini Crawlers

Famed for RC flying, Kavan has stepped into the world of RC cars with the release of a new product line GRIP by KAVAN.  The first cars under this line are two 1/18 and two 1/24 scale mini-crawlers in RTR set, and a 1:18 scale Kit version with a clear body and tuning metal parts. The cars were presented together with a wide range of spare and tuning parts, as well as many scale accessories. Code-named GRE, the “expedition specials“ combine the worlds of small and giant models. They take from the big ones the handling and wilderness performance along with the detailed design, and like the smaller cars, they are compact, portable, and ready to go anytime, anywhere. The solid metal chassis holds a DC motor, 600mAh LiPo battery, waterproof receiver with a transmitter, as well as a 1kg waterproof steering servo. There is a free slot on the ESC to connect additional lights or FPV system for example. Proper off-road predation is taken care of by permanent all-wheel drive with a 104:1 gear ratio, 4-point axle suspension, long-travel shocks, encapsulated differentials or soft deep-pattern tyres.
