Restoration RC – in the first of a new series of articles under the How To banner, we look at buying a second-hand RC vehicle then improving on its performance by stripping the mechanicals and carefully rebuilding the chassis.

Reviews
Losi Ten-T RallyX RTR – powered by a high-performance brushless system capable of 50mph, the new Losi RallyX is fortunately equipped with Spektrum’s AVC technology so you can easily explore its limits whilst remaining in full control.

Team Associated TC6.2 – the designers at ‘Area 51’ have definitely been more pro-active then re-active wit the new TC6.2 model when you compare it against the outgoing model. We see it as philosophy change rather then just an evolution and you can read why with out seven page feature.

Tamiya DT-03 Neo Fighter Buggy – if you loved the original Frog then say hello to DT-03, the 21st century that Tamiya introduced the at Nuremberg. This may be an introductory fun/race kit but it does feature the latest off-road buggy DNA.

Carisma M40S VW Touareg – with the scale looks of a Paris-Dakar winner, the Carisma Volkswagen Touareg is an ideal package for racers on a budget, being supplied with everything that you need all in one package.

Vaterra V100-S CHP Camaro ZL-1 – from law-breaker to law enforcer, Vaterra’s drop-dead gorgeous Camaro ZL-1 has been given a distinctive new image that turns this street racer into a respectable patrol vehicle. So less traffic light grand prix and more traffic control, Racer runs the rule over the California Highway Patrol Camaro ZL-1.

Xray XB4 2014 Specs and XB4 2WD – this month we look at Xray’s latest 1:10 off-road buggies in the form of the updated XB4 4WD model as well as the 2WD that uses the former’s adapted platform. With such similarities, it made sense to analyse them both at once in one big eight-page feature.
