Kyosho America has announced the popular Kyosho RB6 buggy will undergo ‘running changes’ for new kits produced. The new features of the buggy include several features that were planted on Jared Tebo’s IFMAR World Championship winning car from 2013. Designed specifically for mid-motor racing, the new kit will include 3 hole rear suspension arms, gold rear shock springs, and a selection of rear wings. While these changes are far from releasing an earth-shattering new car, Kyosho says these changes improve durability, allow for broader setting options, and increase stability on high grip surfaces including artificial grass, carpet, and hard-packed dirt.

It is an unwritten rule in R/C car racing that to be fast, you have to look fast. Looking fast includes have a good looking pit setup. Pro-Line steps up your pit swag with their new roll-up style pit mat. The roll-up pit mat is Pro-Line blue with multi-colored Pro-Line logos printed all around. The mat is made from a light-weight, durable, non-slip and extra thick material that resists most commonly used chemicals found in R/C. It’s time to give the yoga mat back to your wife, and get yourself a REAL R/C pit mat.

Reedy’s 6000mAh 70C Competition LiPo Battery is intended primarily for touring cars where capacity can be sacrificed in exchange for lighter weight and increased power output, HOWEVER, we prefer to think of it as a new 1/10 buggy OFFROAD pack for those looking to run an ‘old school’ full-length LiPo setup. Reedy’s high-quality, durable hard case helps prevent damage while 4mm socket connectors keeps power-robbing resistance to a minimum.
“Lighter weight allows for greater flexibility when adjusting weight distribution while maintaining the correct minimum overall weight. World-class power output thanks to a high average discharge voltage and low internal resistance makes this battery the natural choice for stock racers looking to improve their lap times. Modified racers will enjoy the added power as well – especially on medium to large tracks where extra power translates into faster lap times.”

After the original ‘game-changing’ release of the 1/8 lexan wing dubbed the ‘trifecta’, Pro-Line have released a pre-cut version which should help those of us who really aren’t mature enough to be playing with scissors let alone Xacto knives.
The new 1:8 Lexan trifecta wing brings a huge amount of weight savings to the highest part of your buggy and massively lowers your cars center of gravity. This results in faster corner speeds and reduces the chance of traction rolling when faced with high-bite track conditions. The 1:8 Trifecta Lexan wing design follows the tradition set by the 1:10 Buggy Wing and features 3 strengthening ribs and 3 dimples that hang down on each side creating a “golf ball aerodynamic effect” under the wing for added down force and reduced high speed drag.
New to the 1:8 Trifecta Lexan Wing is the center fin piece that adds more side stability to your car and strength around the mounting holes. Carried over from the Molded Trifecta Wing, the Trifecta Lexan Wing includes 2 optional wickerbills (Small & Large) that allow you to tune the performance and downforce of the wing to your liking.
