Horizon Hobby introduces the new Losi Baja Rey 1/10 4wd Ready-To-Run Desert Truck. The Losi Baja Rey desert truck is built on one of the most advanced chassis ever conceived for a ready-to-run vehicle.

Kyosho Inferno Neo ST Race Spec 2.0

20151217_kyosho-040LR

See: Kyosho 

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.
