LC Racing have introduced new body for his EMB-DTH 1/14 scale 4wd Desert Truck. The body consists of 6 pieces assembled on a nice-looking roll cage giving a realistic look and and strong enough to withstand big crashes. Realism adds convenience because the roll cages has a hinge that provides quick and easy access to components to remove the battery or simply for maintenance.
H-Speed have introduced a brand new moulded carbon fiber chassis for the Team Associated B5M. The chassis is made from high quality moulded carbon fiber made in Germany. It replaces the original aluminum chassis without any extra work or bits needed. The chassis gives the car an extra torsion flex and and saves extra 61 grams compared with the stock chassis, which is a really good option for any kind of surface.
With the dust hardly settled on Kyosho’s rather of their Inferno MP9 TKI4 buggy, it’s no secret that Yuichi Kanai has been racking up the air miles travelling to and from Las Vegas – continually testing in preparation for the Worlds in October, the programme perhaps accelerated after an unflattering result at the Worlds warm up, Kyosho chasing as 9th World Championship in 1/8 Offroad, however currently enduring a barren 4-year spell having last won in 2010, the pressure is on Kanai and the TKI4 to deliver in Sin City.
Conspicuously absent from the Worlds warm up was Kanai, and test session afterwards, Kyosho’s frontman opting to attend a ‘quieter’ event – the Nevada state championships last weekend, with Cody King and Colin Herzig both there as well, it would seem Kanai travelled with new parts, a new front shock tower, and front upper arm mount, clear from the lack of anodizing – We understand these prototype parts will offer slightly different positions to the stock TKI4 tower and mount.

First round of Finnish 1/10 off-road Nationals were held at Hyvinkää in Finland. Weather was pretty warm and sunny, and that made the track pretty dusty. In 2wd Joel Valander took the TQ with two first places. Joona Haatanen was starting second followed by Karri Salmela in third. Finals were thrilling between top three guys as they were lot quicker than rest of the field. Joel won first and last leg of triple A-mains.
I attended the Nitro vs Electric Shootout at TARCAR Raceway in Toledo,OH. First time to this track and it didn’t disappoint! Layout was fast, technical, and flowing. The shootout would take the top 5 nitro qualifiers and top 5 electric qualifiers for buggy and truggy and put them in a triple A main format. The rest of the nitro and electric cars would run regular main formats. TLR factory driver Dakota Phend was in attendance and that made me happy. This would give me a chance to judge my speed with my new team for 2016.

“The 8ight 4.0 buggies worked flawlessly all day on the Pro-Line tires and the Triton L3 ran amazing as usual providing me with awesome power and fuel mileage. My Spektrum DX4R radio and servos let me drive with confidence. Thanks to all my sponsors for the support.” – Collin Weatherholt
The third round of the Danish Nationals was held at the great track in Greve. In Truggy Nitro class, HB driver Pelle Culmsee will TQ all qualification rounds. He is followed by HB teammates Oliver Fischer and Peter Harder. Culmsee keeps going and wins the semi final and places his Team Orion-powered truggy on the pole position. After an hard fight throughout the final, Culmsee wins the race in front of Oliver Fischer second and Peter Harder third. In the Nitro Buggy class Culmsee will win once again the TQ ahead Oliver Fischer and Peter Harder. The young HB driver wins the semi and also start on pole for the main final. In the final Culmsee has a bad start because the engine flamed out just before the start tone. He come back to the track with half a lap down and manage to take the first place after 35 minutes. Culmsee wins again with a 20 seconds gap on Fischer and Harder, second and third respectively.
