Absima ATC 2.4 BL – Hot on the wheels of the brushed version of Absima’s new 4WD touring car, we now get to test the ATC 2.4 BL brushless version that uses the same proven platform but now with even more speed and performance.

FTX Outlaw – The FTX Outlaw is part crawler, part buggy with looks to kill. Based on the Ultra-4 buggies that race around the desert in the West Coast of the USA, FTX’s version puts an RC spin on the design.

Team Associated TC7.1 FT – The TC7.1 is the natural successor to the car that took the BRCA National title last year, and comes packed full of Factory Team options including Genuine Kashima Coat shocks and DCV front driveshafts, fitted to a narrow chassis with one-piece motor mount, floating servo mount and rear gear diff.

Kyosho Drone Racer – We reckon that Kyosho might just have hit upon something very special with the introduction of their new Drone Racer that even the most seasoned and hardened surface enthusiasts can feel at home with.
