Kyosho unveiled their new Inferno Neo ST Race Spec 2.0 ReadySet (RTR), a factory-assembled, nitro-powered racing truck that’s got World and National Championship origins. It’s built on a foundation that benefits from more than a decade of development and refinement.
The channeled aluminum chassis is made from stronger, more durable alloy. It’s supported at the front and rear bulkheads by molded chassis braces, which are allowed to flex more than rigid aluminum braces. For years this has been a performance secret of many Kyosho racing vehicles, because a more compliant chassis brace has been the key to superior traction and handing. The bulkheads and suspension arms are taken right from the ST-RR Evo racing kit, and the three-differential drivetrain is so effective that its one of the most copied components in the history of RC racing. Front, center and rear differentials transfer power to the wheels via a strong shaft drive system with ultra-smooth front universal driveshafts. A double disc brake system provides ample stopping power, and it’s adjustable to your liking if you decide to experiment.
After the Crosslink 2.2 1/10 buggy rear tire, here is the Crosslink version for 1/10 Stadium Truck. The characteristics of both tires are identical, with a symmetrical open tread pattern designed to break in quickly and provide unparalleled forward traction. This additional forward traction is perfect for today’s high powered 1/10 Stadium Trucks and allows a more aggressive steering setup without the worry of losing on-power control.
The Xlink has been designed for hard packed or blue groove, indoor and outdoor tracks. Availables in championship winning Clay, Ultra Soft and Super Soft compounds as tires with Red inserts.

Whilst truggys never quite took off outside N.America, their ‘home market’ still shifts some kits, Kyosho have finally come round to update their offering, announcing the Inferno ST-RR Evo 2.
The update includes newly designed front & rear shocks towers that suit high-grip surfaces and the new-ish… radio box set with lightweight clutch bell included as standard to boost running power.
“The tough straight cut bevel gears and small flywheel from the 1/8 buggy MP9 deliver increased reliability while the dial-adjustable big bore shocks allow for precision setting. The low-profile form of the new forward cabin design body combines with the MP9 wing to produce sure-footed rear grip and maneuverability.”
After a week of teasing, TLR has officially released their new 22T 2.0 stadium truck. The 22T 2.0 Race Kit continues to build on the championship-winning 22 platform with a host of new features that make it easy for competitors of all experience levels to drive fast.
Updates include advanced suspension geometry adapted from the 22 2.0 buggy, a new bell-crank steering system, Gen II shocks with X-ring seals and a thoroughly refined ball differential with tungsten carbide diff balls. You also get popular option parts as well as hardware for both mid- and rear-motor configurations.
Over the last week, TLR has posted a series of teaser photos for a new 22-based vehicle, but we have have just seen the most telling photos yet (see below).
Our best guess, based upon these 2 photos, is a 22T 2.0, with mid-motor configuration. With the tag line, “You asked for it!,” many people (myself included) were wondering if perhaps the vehicle would be a nitro 22NT gas truck…but obviously that wasn’t it!
So is this what you’ve been asking for–a new 22 2.0 stadium truck? We will discover the full release tomorrow, but until then, let us know your thoughts in the poll and comments section below!
Since the beginning of the class, Team Associated has been the leader in 1:10 scale 2WD truck racing. Over 24 years have come and gone since the first RC10T made its debut in 1991 and created a winning legacy that continues today in a truck class which is ever evolving.
Making the perfect marriage. By taking the proven championship-winning RC10T4 platform and applying the technologies used in the B5M, the engineers of Team Associated’s Area 51 created the RC10T5M. Like the B5M, the T5M has an aluminum chassis and mid-motor configuration that are designed to take full advantage of the surface conditions and high traction levels available on today’s tracks.
The RC10T5M has been designed and built to the highest standard to give racers the performance edge over the competition.
