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.

The additional flex has proved to increase grip, and make the car feel more balanced easier to drive leading faster, more consistent laps.
