Following on from the success of their 3D Pro Carbon Car Stacker for 1:10 & 1:12 Onroad, RC Maker has introduced a larger version of the stand to cater 1:10 Offroad, 1:10 and 1:8 Nitro Onroad and No Prep Drag Cars. Sporting a mostly carbon fibre construction, both upper and lower arms have adjustable height. This stacker allows plenty of room to store your cars with a huge 170mm distance between the upper and lower level. The 3/4mm CNC Machined Carbon Fibre gives a stylish look, along with the super high quality 3d printed stand. The carbon can be removed from the stand by only removing two screws that attach the carbon to the base. The carbon features two 7075 Aluminium standoffs for rigidity which can be easily removed with 2 screws. So 4 screws removed and you can flat pack it for travelling! The base contains several voids for holding screws, shims, body clips and many other parts, handy for keeping things clean.
Spanish brand Ultimate Racing has added this all lexan 1:8 offroad rear wing to its range of accessories. The wing provides more rotation in slow corners while improving stability in fast corners due to its reduced weight. It is made of high quality 1.0mm lexan and while not pre-cut it does come with the lines for easy cutting. Each wing is made up of 2 parts, the main wing and the central part. The central part helps to increase downforce while reinforcing the main wing. Each pack contains two full wings.
Team Associated has released the option for RC10T6.2 and RC10SC6.2 owners to upgrade to 13mmm shocks. Take advantage of the 13mm shock technology from the RC10B6.4 buggy that offers a superior ride for bumps and jumps. The larger 13mm-bore piston allows you to run lighter oils to get the low-speed feeling of a soft shock, but with more pack as you take off and land your jumps. This translates to a truck that soaks up the bumps in and out of corners but packs up in the high-speed landings to give you the feeling of landing on a pillow. The 13mm X 36mm shock body is also available in a genuine FOX Kashima Coat version with AE offering a range of 54mm truck front springs and 72mm truck rear springs for the upgrade.
JConcepts has released the P2 for the Team Associated B6 platform and describes their latest body as ‘the meanest, nastiest thing out for 1/10th buggy racing’. The Punisher 2 separates itself from the rest of the bodies on the market with its distinctive styling. The S2 and F2 body designs have created their own path of success on dirt, carpet, and Astroturf with class leading success, now, the P2, will carve its own. The P2 concentrates on performance with riveting details including raised nose / hood, taller cab and rear-end force features. The side-pods are once again JC chamfered to provide that legendary look and the secondary window screams JConcepts styling. The cab drops off quickly and runs deep toward the rear giving plenty of drift to the newly added winglets. The tall, rear fin stabilizer acts as a vane to keep the buggy tracking in the proper direction while also maintaining a rigid roof-line even with light-weight materials. The package arrives complete with, two, Carpet, Turf, and Dirt wings used routinely by Ryan Maifield, Spencer Rivkin, and Dakotah Phend. Included window masks make painting quick and easy and JConcepts decal sheet allows detailing to look sharp and noticeable.

The left hand threads mean wheel nut will not accidentally come loose while driving.
The 2022 RCRA Australian 1:10 Offroad Titles, sponsored by SpeedyRC, was held at Chargers RC over the weekend. While the 5 day event had its difficulties with rains cutting practice short, the big winner was Team Associated’s Christopher Sturdy who took the TQ and win in 2WD, 4WD and Mod Truck for a National Title triple. The first of the Premier classes lived up to the hype, with all of Australia’s best talent turning up to put on a show. Sturdy would take TQ all 4 rounds of 2WD qualifying with Lachlan Donnelly often nipping at the heels only a couple of seconds off. A clean display in A1 allowed Sturdy to pull a small gap over Donnelly. In A2 Donnelly was on song, following Sturdy around within a few tenths for most the race but Sturdy was not shaken and would also take victory in A2 giving him overall win.
