Reviews
Nanda Racing NRB-5 RTR – Chinese manufacturer Nanda makes its first appearance in Racer Magazine with their RTR nitro buggy that retails for under £225. With a pull-start-equipped 3.5cc engine this is well suited to the first time buyer, aided by the fact that are only a few extras required to get it up and running as we found out.
Axial Racing Yeti XL – The XL version of the Yeti ensures that it has even more presence than the original 1:10 model, and backs it up with a mega powerful brushless package capable of propelling it to insane speeds on the roughest of tracks. We had so much fun with this rock racer that it just had to be the lead image on the cover too.
Mardave BB10 – The BB10 sees Mardave enter the World GT market using their knowledge gained from the GT12 scene as well as their many years of experience producing carpet racers. We put the BB10 to the test and found out what one of the UK’s oldest manufacturers has to offer the 1:10-scale pan car scene.
Vaterra Twin Hammers update – After our build review of the Twin Hammers Rock Racer kit in the December 2014 issue, our second instalment sees us not only run it, but offer an overview of the package and our thoughts on ownership.
HPI Sprint 2 Flux RTR BMW M3 GTS – The Sprint 2 chassis may be a little old in the tooth, but its perfect for the first rime buyer. Throw in a proven Flux motor and speed control into the package and you have one very fast RTR – maybe a touch too much bearing in mind this HPI can achieve over 50mph as we found out.

Price: £4.25
