A Main Hobbies team driver Chad Bradley is no stranger to most of you, with a career in 1/8 Offroad to rival the best he knows a thing or two on making a high performance 1/8 buggy tick, we caught up with him to hear his take on MIP’s innovative new ‘PRO 8′ product; a kit to turn popular 4WD Shortcourse truck into a lightweight 1/8 electric buggy racing machine.
MIP just released their Pro8 conversion for TLR’s popular SCTE & SCTE 2.0 4WD short course truck that converts your truck into a capable 1/8-scale buggy. Although the 4WD SC class has been popular over the last couple of years, fewer trucks are making it to the track these days. What better way to revitalize your truck than to convert it into a buggy for about $100? Multiple world championship finalist and long-time 1/8-scale racer, Chad Bradley, put the Pro8 to the test at A Main Hobbies’ Outback Raceway. The Pro8 surprised Bradley, and you will be too, once your read what he had to say.
Chad Bradley: “ The Pro8 is extremely fun to drive, and the power to weight ratio seemed perfect for indoor racing. Comparing a 4wd SC to the Pro8 Super Light eBuggy isn’t really a fair comparison. The benefits of using a buggy style body, 1/8-scale wing and tires with low profile sidewalls plays a huge effect on handling and gives the buggy an advantage.
I highly recommend this product. With the popularity of indoor racing and the fall off of 4wd SC trucks, those racers with the Losi SCTE and SCTE 2.0 can easily convert their trucks to a more affordable and user-friendly 1/8-scale electric powered buggy and start racing again with that same equipment. The batteries, ESC and motors that are required to power the Pro8 is more user-friendly than the true 1/8-scale buggy and safer as well.”

Over the weekend Taiwan hosted the Asian FEMCA Championships for 1/10th Offroad which featured a few cameo star appearances; Lee Martin, Naoto Matsukura, Shin Adachi and HB designer Torrance Deguzman amongst the entry field, however it wasn’t long before the highest profile free agent Atsushi Hara turned up trackside.
In a short interview with AsiaRC.info Hara explained he was simply there to watch as an interested spectator, with a hint of FEMCA ambassador as well – perhaps following in Masami’s footsteps a bit?
On the subject of his future plans he was coy, not giving away much, even denying a ‘Hara brand’ – “No still nothing decided yet, only meetings”.
He did go onto say that he was in Taiwan last month speaking with Kingstar (one of the largest parts manufacturers for many RC companies), discussing various options in the future in several meetings.
As fans round the world guess what the Japanese ace has in store, the news suggests he is looking to be much more involved in a project or company, rather than previously only as a driver. However more than a few have noticed the post-HB era growth in size of the A Main Hobbies & Protek RC logos sending many an keyboard warrior into an online forum frenzy.
