Pro-Line Phantom Clear Body for 8ight 3.0

 

Phantom Clear Body for 8ight 3.0



This is a Phantom Clear Body for TLR 8ight 3.0. A brand new body style has hit the scene from the mind of Pro-Line driver Lee Martin: the Phantom. Featuring a Stealthy cab forward look and sweeping body lines that flow back to a single point, the Phantom has the style and performance you have been looking for. The optional center fin adds additional high speed stability and finishes off the design of this fresh looking 1:8 Buggy body. The 8ight 3.0 Phantom fits snugly around the chassis for an ultra-low and super sleek look that everyone will want. Lee Martin used the Phantom to finish 2nd in the World at the IFMAR World Championships on the Challenging Silver Dollar track in Chico, California. Now you can own the same winning body style as Lee Martin!

Pro-Line Trifecta Wing for 1:8 Buggy & 1:8 Truck

 

Trifecta Wing for 1:8 Buggy & 1:8 Truck



This is a Trifecta 1:8 Wing. Pro-Line’s new Trifecta Wing combines everything that serious 1:8 scale racers are looking for: Performance, Style and Durability. From the moment that you put Pro-Line’s new wing on your Buggy or Truggy you will be amazed at the increase in rear traction and high-speed stability that the wing provides. The Trifecta Wing features an aggressive, futuristic design with large center fins for maximum stability when you need it most. Included with Pro-Line’s new wing are 2 optional wickerbills (Small & Large) that allow you to tune the performance of the wing to your liking. Underneath the main plate of the Trifecta Wing there are 3 dimples that hang down on each side creating a “golf ball aerodynamic effect” which increases low speed down force and reduces high speed drag. Buggy and Truggy wings take a beating with each crash so Pro-Line designed the Trifecta Wing to be up for the challenge. Be on the cutting edge of 1:8 scale wing technology with Pro-Line’s new Trifecta Wing!

ROAR statement about 1/10th buggy tires

 

Here is an official Statement by ROAR:


1/10 Buggy Off Road Tire

A recent innovation in the 1/10 off-road buggy tire market, currently under consideration by ROAR for the 2015 racing season, is the evolution of the tire mounting bead to one resembling that of typical 1/8 tires, and new wheels to accommodate the mounting of these tires.To implement this mounting bead design while keeping the sidewall height and overall tire diameter the same, however, it was apparently necessary to increase the wheel diameter in a dimension that is specifically regulated by IFMAR, ROAR and others. Given the global implications of such a change to the rules, it requires more careful consideration prior to approval, and an equal concern for when such a transition can take place. It's for these reasons that this new design is under consideration for the 2015 racing season and not the current season.

Questions about the possibility of adapting the new tires to the old style wheels in the interim, have been raised by some in the racing community, for use at this year's 2014 Electric Off-Road Nationals. It's come to the attention of ROAR that adapting the new style tires to the currently legal wheels requires a modification to the wheel, which is not permitted under the current rules. The nuance of using "adapter kits" that have been available in the market recently, has also been proposed. It's the opinoin of ROAR however, that the use of such adapter kits constitutes a modification to the wheels. To allow such an interim step would require the purchase and installation of adapter kits, which ROAR feels is an undue burden to the racers. There are significant number of racers that have already invested in tires and wheels that are legal under the current rules, and we must disallow the use of the new style tires at this year's National while the full specification is under consideration for next season.

ROAR understands that innovation is necessary and this is a subject that's under close consideration. But we thank you for your patience and understanding during this time, to consider the impact of allowing any "half measures" on all racers. ROAR expects to have this issue fully resolved for the running of the 2015 Nationals, but respectfully requests that racers understand that only the currently approved tires and wheels will be permitted at the upcoming 2014 Nationals.

REDS Racing race report

 

Cody King TQs & wins at Mugen Grand Prix Rd1!



This weekend marked the first round of the Mugen Grand Prix in Chula Vista, California. There were plenty of local fast guys in attendance including Cody Smith who won the Hi-Tech race on this layout, and track manager Don Vinkemulder. With only 20 minutes of practice Cody went to work right away with a TQ run in round 1 of qualifying, which would stand giving Cody the pole position.

On the first lap of the 30 minute final, Cody bobbled over the “wooden wash board” and surrendered the lead to 2nd qualifier Cody Smith. The two Codys would freight train around the track nose to tail for the first 6 minutes, separating themselves from the rest of the field. It was obvious King wanted the lead, but he was patient and not making any aggressive moves. King with his R5T Team Edition would finally pass Smith in the pits and maintain that advantage for the rest of the race, as the two battled through traffic for 20 more minutes. King would hold on for 1st, with Smith 2nd and Vinkemulder 3rd.
