Naoto & Yokomo end 10-year journey
19 December 2014 15:07
Naoto & Yokomo end 10-year journey Naoto Shocking news has hit the R/C world today as multi-time World Champion, Naoto Matsukura, has announced his departure from Yokomo. The two have worked together over the course of the past ten years to accomplish World Championship titles in 1/12 scale, touring car, and a long list of victories in both onroad and offroad genres. According to Matsukura, the contract ended “amicably”. Where Naoto is headed is still unknown, however, being a ‘jack of all trades’ we suspect he will be looking for a new home with a company similar to Yokomo, in which offers an extensive line of onroad AND offroad vehicles such as Team Associated, XRAY, Serpent, Schumacher, Hot Bodies, VBC Racing, and so on. Then again, he wouldn’t be the first driver to run multiple brand vehicles for the various racing classes (ex. Robert Batlle – Mugen 1/8 scale, Team C 1/10 scale).

RDRP B5/B5M VTS Slipper Option Kit RDRP Slipper Revolution Design (RDRP) has just released their all-new VTS Slipper Option Kit for the Team Associated B5 and B5M buggys. The RDRP VTS Slipper Option Kit makes the most of the original Team Associated clutch. The 4-piece kit replaces the standard outer and inner aluminium slipper plates with vented variants for improved heat dissipation and fading-free operation. RDRP0254-1 RDRP0254-2 RDRP0254-5 Also the center VTS plate was replaced with a vented and hard-coated aluminium plate while the VTS slipper housing, originally a molded composite part, is supplied in a lightweight, blue anodized and laser-etched aluminium variant. Like the slipper plate, the housing is of a vented design to not only allow for better heat dissipation but also to lower its weight. All parts are precision machined from 7075-T6 aluminium and they are a direct fit on both the Team Associated B5 and B5M. Source: RDRP

Pro-Line’s ‘Prime’ new 1/10 buggy tire
19 December 2014 15:39
Pro-Line’s ‘Prime’ new 1/10 buggy tire   Pro-Line Racing has officially released their all-new ‘Prime’ 1/10 buggy tires. Many indoor offroad race tracks have turned to carpet or pure clay style dirt in search of ultimate traction, eliminating the need for traditional treaded tires. Pro-Line’s all new Prime tires are targeted directly at racers currently running full “slick” tires, saving them from having to grind treaded tires down while delivering improved performance. 8244-17 8244-17-18244-17-4 8244-17-2 Pro-Line’s Prime tires feature unique grooves that add traction and stability when the track is freshly watered or when there is a slight layer of thin dust that would cause a traditional “slick” tire to just spin. The raised treaded portion of the Prime tire has a distinctive rough surface texture similar to a ground “slick” tire and makes the Prime tire have maximum performance right out of the package. Available for 2wd and 4wd buggy, and sold in multiple compounds. Source: Pro-Line Racing

Storey wins Silverstone Series Rd.3 Storey The third round of the popular Silverstone Winter Series was held at their indoor astroturf track in Northampton last weekend. As ever, the Silverstone team built a challenging yet flowing track to test the full entry of drivers. In the main 2wd class, the Schumacher KF’s of Lloyd Storey and Nathan Waters took all four rounds of qualifying, with two each. Lloyd took the overall TQ by virtue of the faster time over 5 minutes, and would line up on pole for the A final. Nathan stayed on Lloyd’s tail for the entire length of the final, but Lloyd managed to take the win just ahead of Nathan, closely followed by Kev Lee in 3rd.
