Having shown you the Pro Truggy A-main yesterday, today it is the turn of the Pro Buggy final. Ty Tessmann would once again take the win, but first would have to fend off Ryan Cavalieri and then a fast charging Ryan Maifield before pulling out almost a lap lead on 2nd place to take the victory. Check out the video above of the entire Pro Buggy final, shot late at night at the Fear Farm Raceway in Arizona.

Xceed RC soon release two new starter boxes for on-road and off-road cars. Sporting a dark green anodised aluminium case with with flip top the boxes feature a strong 775-size motor, harness set for NiXX and LiXX batteries, integrated on/off switch, a durable rubber flywheel, ballraced Kevlar-reinforced belt and mechanics, foam padding and universal positioning mounts. The off-road starter box also comes with a slightly raised bottom support bracket to give more clearance for buggies and truggies.

Exotek have introduced the F1 Ultra, the next evolution in their F1 line of chassis for the F103. Based on the hugely successful F1R, the F1ultra has been refined for the Tamiya F103 and benefits greatly from its wider track and shorter wheelbase and works equally well on foam or rubber tires. Features include link type rear pod for exceptional rear grip, optimized for use with 7.4v shorty packs, inline or laterally, for a more compact and lighter car and the bottom plate only design helps generate more steering response. This coupled with the increased rear traction creates an overall better handling car. A unicrank steering assembly gives smoother steering and a lower center of gravity at the nose to reduce traction roll.

The Duratrax 12-tip multi-driver tool stores six double-ended tool bits in the handle and does the work of a dozen different drivers with just one handy tool. The machined, anodized aluminum handle is hex-shaped to resist rolling and improve grip. The end cap rotates to select the preferred bit. Bit length is adjustable, so the modeler can shorten it for more torque or lengthen it for greater reach.

Losi announce the new Micro Truggy RTR 1/24 scale micro-size truck. The 156mm long vehicle features 4WD, shaft-driven transmission, adjustable coil-over shocks, micro all-terrain Kingpin tyres, threaded suspension pins, and a 2-in-1 ESC/receiver combo. Included in the RTR kit are a 27MHz radio set, 4.8V NiMH battery and Peak-detection wall charger.

Team Durango release new option parts for the DEX410 and ’408 line of 4WD off-road vehicles. Made for the DEX410 line of cars is the aluminium servo saver arm that replaces the stock plastic part with a CNC-machined and hard anodised aluminium version. The part offers increased strength over the kit item and is a direct replacement. The other new parts are volume compensating foams for the ’408 line of electric and nitro off-road buggies. The foam is designed to be fitted above the shock diaphragm inside the shock cap and is intended to be used in conjunction with the company’s vented shock caps and offers additional support to the diaphragm when used with the vented caps. The compensators can also be used with the stock shock caps for increased rebound characteristics and extra tuning possibilities.

Novak release two new brushless controller and motor combos based on the GTB 2 X-Drive and the company’s Ballistic competition BL motors. The GTB 2 X-Drive is a sensor-based controller for top-level non-timing racing, and sport a low-profile heat sink, Novak’s X-Drive firmware for improved throttle feel, smooth braking and cooler running temperatures as well as build-in low-voltage protection for LiPo and LiFe battery packs. The combo sets are available with a Ballistic 8.5T or 17.5T “blinky” class sensored brushless motor.

Current American 2WD Buggy Champion Dustin Evans is to contest the rest of the inaugural TLR/Spektrum Euro Offroad Series presented by Horizon Hobby. The 26-year-old, who took the then newly launched TLR22 to 2WD victory at the EOS Pilot race in Sweden last year on his first ever visit to Europe, will join fellow American Mike Truhe and Portugal’s Miguel Matias to strengthen Team Losi Racing’s EOS campaign with their main focus being on securing the 2WD Buggy title.

Reds report that they introduce some updates to their R series buggy engines in order to increase reliability and performance, and to lower the fuel consumption. The R5T will come with the long needle carburettor that is already being used for the R5 engine. The part improves fuel economy and guarantees a linear power output. The updated R5 will come with a completely redesigned crankshaft, in order to guarantee higher performance and efficiency. Compared to the previous crankshaft, the general surface finishing has been improved in order to provide a better fluid dynamic. Moreover the red silicone filling reduces weight and the rotating mass.
