SWORKz have introduced their all-new S35-2E 1/8 E-Buggy kit. After making a good start with the SWORKz S350 BE1 Pro then with the S350 BE1 EVO, SWORKz further improved the buggy and created the S35-2E. The S35-2E is the ultimate SWORKz 1/8th electric buggy at the moment. Its new rear suspension design and front ackerman steering system came directly from the 1/8th S350 EVO II Limited nitro buggy. A totally brand new center transmission system provides all round improvements to the S35-2E.

HB Racing is proud to announce the release of the successor to the World Champion D815 1/8 Nitro Buggy. The new D815 V2 adds key features based on extensive testing and racing by our HB Team Drivers and designers. The D815 V2 is faster, more adjustable, and easier to drive.
Now included are 2 chassis plates, standard and a new extended chassis. The extended chassis adds 4mm of length to the rear of the car which allows a longer wheelbase (up to the maximum regulation) and shifts the overall center of gravity for more stability, especially on high-speed corners.Ty Tessmann and most of the HB drivers have switched to this longer chassis. An extended rear drive shaft (neces- sary when using the extended chassis), and the popular high wing mount are also included.
“The D815V2 kit comes with more of the tuning options that I use on today’s high speed tracks, to make the car even faster.” – Ty Tessmann, HB Racing Team Driver, IFMAR World Champion

Based on the ultra-successful XB8 platform, XRAY proudly presents the 2016-spec XB8 which incorporates the latest improvements and refinements gathered by the team, race-proven in the highest competition races around the world.
With my long-time experiences with 1/8 off-road racing, combined with the expertise I have gained from the R&D process at my previous projects at XRAY with XB2 and XB4 platforms, I have incorporated all the improvements & refinements to the XB8 platform to make it better, easier to work on, and more reliable.

Team Losi Racing have introduced the new 5ive-B 1/5 4wd Race buggy kit, a 5th scale 2-stroke buggy with some really cool inventions. The wheelbase is slightly smaller than the 5ive-T and will fit right into the official regulations for large-scale competition. This is the car we are waiting for such a long time and we can’t wait to have one in our hands by ourselves. It comes as a kit so you can build it the way you like. Uses Losi Mini suspension arms to achieve the best competition buggy out there.
If the announcement of Team Associated’s B6 was eagerly welcomed with great enthusiasm, it also created some surprise:
Why replace/upgrade a new 2wd to replace the B5 and not a new 4wd to replace the ageing B44 based on a decade-old platform ?
If the reason is clearly commercial, the 2wd being a much larger market than the 4WD market, Team Associated might not want to stop their momentum starting with the launch of its 2wd. A Snapchat hit the rumor mill and speculation is rife: Team Associated relating to their fanbase by constant teasing, Watch this space.

Team Associated have launched those who have the task of replacing the famous and B5 and B5M, the B6 and B6D Team kits. Divide and conquer! In today’s racing, traction dictates your setup — period! With both B6 and B6D configurations available, getting to the top of the podium has never been easier. Out of the box, the B6 offers racers a setup developed for high to very-high traction, whereas the B6D excels when traction is low to high. Racing at multiple tracks, or where traction changes throughout the day, has never been easier; setups and tuning parts are interchangeable between the two configurations, making the B6 platform extremely versatile. Both versions come with the speed, durability and lineage expected of a true champion. Choose the configuration that suits your track and conquer the competition! Available in June.
