See: PR Racing

PR Racing have introduced the new SB401-R 1/10 4wd buggy kit. Based on the successful SB401 platform the SB401-R is faster, quieter and easier to maintain and tune. A number of key components have been totally redesigned to produce a better handling and more forgiving car to drive. The main focus has been on the all new narrow 2mm 7075 -T6 chassis and plastic side -pods , which utilizes a carbon fibre re-enforced spine to control torsional and longitudinal flex. The additional flex has proved to increase grip, and make the car feel more balanced easier to drive leading faster, more consistent laps.

Daniel Kobbevik sweeps Norwegian EP Buggy Nats Rd4

The fourth round of the Norwegian 1/10 Electric Buggy Nationals was held at the SAS track near Sandefjord. The weather forecast was not looking to good, but luckily, the track will be spared by the rain. In 2wd, XRAY driver Daniel Kobbevik was over 2.2 sec faster on best lap, and the only one that put a 9 laps in the qualifier rounds. The track was bumpy, slippery and challenging, so it was a great challenge for all drivers. The wind made also some of the jumps pretty difficult to handle. After qualification was done, D. Kobbevik TQed all rounds from Thorbjørn Døhler (XRAY) and Øystein Døhler (Team Associated). In the finals it was pretty much the same scenario as in qualification, D. Kobbevik pulled away and the fight was about the second and third place between Ø. Døhler and T. Døhler. D. Kobbevik won all three A-mains in front of T. Døhler in second and Ø. Døhler in third.
