    New high grade carbon fiber conversion chassis set for the Mircro RS4. Race inspired design utilizes micro servos and lipo packs for true 1/18 micro style performance and looks.
    Designed using 1.5mm USA made carbon fiber for lighter weight and factory racing looks.
    Includes 1.5mm fiber glass T-plate for improved rear suspension flex and handling. Allows 140mm or 150mm wheelbase settings (150mm belt and body required for 150mm wheelbase).
    T-plate is mounted via a steel block. The weight of the block adds weight to the rear end for better handling with lighter micro sized lipos.


    Includes secure adjustable alloy servo mounts for use with micro sized servos (see instructions for servo details).
    Includes machined alloy front suspension arm pin holder.
    Includes adjustable ESC tray that also serves as the micro battery strap (see instructions for lipo details).
    And of course a carbon fiber rear deck plate mounted to alloy posts has multiple shock mount positioning for 140mm or 150mm wheel base positioning.

    Make it easier than ever to work on your large scale RC car or truck with the Dynamite Large Scale Work Stand!






    The universal mounting plate clamps your chassis to the base, making it possible to turn and tilt your vehicle to the most convenient position possible, allowing you access to the innermost workings of your car or truck. The Large Scale Work Stand can also be converted into two different configurations. The first is a traditional free-standing configuration with the included legs attached. The second configuration allows you to use the Work Stand as a separate bench-top unit. The all-steel construction features a durable powder coated finish that is both good looking and long lasting. Best of all the Large Scale Work Stand Folds up for easy transportation making it easy to transport from your workshop to the racetrack and back. Work smarter, not harder thanks to the Dynamite Large Scale Work Stand!










    • Universal top fixture fits HPI, BAJA 5B, 5Tb, 5SC Losi 5ive-T, Losi Mini WRC, Losi Desert Buggy XL and more
    • Includes a tool/parts tray that can be used with the free standing unit or in the home or shop as the base for a bench top work stand
    • Folds up for easy transport
    • Adjustable height
    • Car fixture plate rotates 360°

  • Pro-Line Flat Iron XL 2.2" G8 Rock Terrain Truck Tires

    0 comments - May 23 2015 08:04 AM

    These are back and now available in 2.2" Rock Crawler size!


    The new 2.2” Flat Iron XL follows the “bigger is better” mantra while still fitting into existing rules (under 5.75”). The beloved Flat Iron tread pattern combines scale realism and all out rock climbing performance that you have come to expect from Pro-Line tires. The large lug pattern combined with siping allows the tire to have the perfect amount of flex under throttle acceleration. In fact, in our testing, the Flat Iron's response to throttle acceleration was unmatched!



      · Aggressive Tread Perfect for a Variety of Surfaces

      · A True Rock Crawling Look

      · Made from the legendary G8 Rock Crawling compound

  • 2015 Kyosho Ultima RB6 Buggy

    0 comments - May 23 2015 07:57 AM

    26 years after the Ultima’s first race victory, Team Kyosho International’s Jared Tebo (America) drove the Ultima RB6 to dominate the IFMAR Electric Off Road Car World Championship held in California in September 2013 with a TQ and the championship victory.




    The world’s most formidable racing machine has now been updated to deliver superior performance on high-grip running surfaces. In addition to the key advantages of the previous model (No.30068) such as high-rigidity 7075-T6 duralumin main chassis, adjustable battery mounting position for changes to weight distribution, choice of midship or rear motor mounting systems, Big Bore oil shocks for superior damping, the new model features the selection of rear wings, 3 hole rear suspension arms & gold rear shock springs to suit the midship motor setup. These changes realize improved durability and broader setting options and stability on high grip surfaces including artificial grass, carpet and hard-packed dirt. The new RB6 is fully loaded and designed for racers ready to challenge serious competition or upgrade for the next big racing event!

  • RPM Rock Sliders for the Axial SCX10

    0 comments - May 23 2015 07:41 AM

    RPM Rock Sliders start with all-new frame-rail mounts that use both the stock screw mount position at the 4-link upper bolts as well as the inner screw holes for the frame brace. This doubles the support for the mounts to help eliminate much of the flex the stock sliders exhibit. Our frame-rail mounts are L-shaped in design with added support ribs, further stabilizing the base support structure of our Rock Sliders.


    Our Rock Sliders are designed to resemble full-sized 2” diameter tubes, yet are molded solid from RPM engineering grade nylons for strength and durability unmatched in the R/C world. Each rock slider is designed with built-in kick out at the rear wheel, helping to guide your ride through turns normally too tight to maneuver without catching the rear tires or the bed section of your body.


    Each RPM Rock Slider is angled upward at 20° to eliminate ground clearance issues and is one of the only sliders available that has vertical as well as lateral adjustments! Do you have your body raised just a little too high for standard sliders? No problem! Our mounting system allows roughly 1/4” (6mm) of upward adjustment and more room to slide them closer to the frame than stock sliders for narrow-bodied applications.
