Horizon Hobby have introduced the new ECX AMP line of 1/10th 2WD ready-to-run off-road cars. Coming as monster truck and desert buggy both vehicles offer a tough construction as well as waterproofing, making them the ideal for all-weather bashing and as beginner’s cars. Building on a tough nylon composite chassis the cars feature oil-filled shock absorbers, a 2WD transmission with gear differential, captured hinge pins as well as a 540-size 20T brushed motor and a full-range 2.4GHz transmitter. The package is rounded out by a 7.2V NiMH battery and a Dynamite wall charger. Both the buggy and the truck are available in two different bodyshell designs.

Ielasi Tuned have introduced the IDT.21-4CQ 4-port “square” engine. The company’s most powerful off-road engine so far is designed to offer great power at both low and high RPM while the 4-port setup makes for a linear power output and low fuel consumption. The engine comes with a R7 conrod which is machined from light aluminium and ultrasonic-checked for improved reliability. Other features include a selected and matched piston/liner assembly for best possible compression and durability while the carburettor used is a reverse-type Novarossi offering to provide high idle stability, precise tuning and higher mid to top range power. The package is rounded out by a new cooling head with etched Ielasi Tuned logo.

New from Corally comes a 75W soldering station. Featuring a high-power Hakko heating element the station reaches the working temperature fast while the microprocessor-controlled unit allows for easy setup and temperature adjustment in 1 degree Celsius increments. The soldering iron sports a comfortable rubber handle and the soldering tip is replaceable without any additional tools. A sleeping mode and automatic shutdown makes for convenient, economic and secure usage of the station that allows for a temperature range of 200 to 450 degree Celsius or the respective Fahrenheit equivalent.

JConcepts have a range of new front and rear wing for the Team Associated B5 series of buggies available. First up is the 6.5″ Finnisher rear wing for B5M buggies. The wing features a high-attack design with trimable rear gurney options and it offers a radical, edgy design which functions and compliments the Finnisher and Silencer body design. The wing mounts low on the vehicle allowing for a lower centre of gravity which is important in high-grip conditions. The lightweight wing features reinforcement ribs to increase lateral stiffness throughout the centre while the hi-clearance areas built into the side-dams allow for rear tyre movement and growth. Cut lines are included for easy trimming while wing mount dimples are included for a drop-fit onto the popular B5M vehicle.

Based off of the popular Mini 8ight platform is Losi’s forthcoming 1/14 Mini Desert 4WD truck. Loaded with a powerful 4500Kv brushless motor, a 2S LiPo-compatible speed controller and equipped with an uncompromising 4WD drivetrain, this highly capable desert truck can handle nearly anything thrown its way. Included with the car, that also features oil-filled shock absorbers, scale-inspired wheels and a Dakar-style body shell is a 7.2V 1200mAh NiMH battery, a suitable AC wall charger and a 2.4GHz radio system.

Joining the Ultima SC Readyset RTR and competition specification Ultima SC-R kit is Kyosho’s third model in this fast growing series; the Ultima SC6. Based on the 2013 Electric Off-Road World Championship RB6 design, the Ultima SC6 has been modified for optimal short course performance from race data and driver feedback. Superior turning performance from the mid-ship layout, smooth suspension movement with big bore aeration oil shocks and minimal drive loss due to the gear differential all combine to deliver dynamic performance on off-road circuits, especially high-grip surfaces. Equipped with the newly developed Team Orion dDrive 1-piece ESC and brushless motor power unit the Readyset also comes with a newly designed pre-cut and printed body and KT-331P transmitter with LCD screen.

VP Pro have released their latest body shell for theTLR 8ight-E 3.0 electric 1/8th scale buggy. Sporting a distinctive design, the body offers a channelled roof section for improved stability and simplified side pods for a clean design, improved airflow and lots of space for the car’s electric components. Made of high quality 1.0mm clear Lexan polycarbonate material.
