From the Upper Shelf - Hobby Letter #18/21

18.5.2021

Hello and warm early summer greetings from Tervakoski, Finland! Heikki here again and I see from here that you need a new truck! Yep, time to check out what will be your next RC car for this coming season.

Let's face it. Your old RC has seen it all and you've had good times with many fond memories. You've taken good care of it like a true hobbyist does. Maybe it is getting bit old and wonky or the spare parts are getting harder to find. Admit it. The retirement days for that truck are already in the horizon. I am not saying that you should get rid of it, what I am saying that maybe it is time to put it in to your Shelf-of-Cool-Things along your other precious RC and hobby gear.

From below you'll find some of our recommendations from our most popular sub-categories. Pick your favorite and order two or three pieces for the whole family along with the bunch of spares! Or just read on and get a grip of what is going on with our hobby!

Jack Of All Trades and Master of Many!

Traxxas Rustler 2WD is one of our best sellers and can be always recommended when someone is looking budget friendly fast action truck. Advantages of this Stadium Truck are simple but powerful 2WD powertrain, very low profile and a bit larger tires. This tiny critter can be easily overlooked by bigger bashers but when the game really starts the Rustler shows its hidden powers.

I have personally seen Rustler outrun many bigger trucks when the action begins. It's fast and very maneuverable. Small in size but evil spirited in mind! Being one of the most popular RC Cars in the world there is also plenty of tuning parts and options available if you really have the urge to make this go over 120km/h or faster.

Traxxas Rustler 2WD Stadium Truck and available colors here!

Gentlemen's Basher

Bashing is one of the most noble and professional of all RC sports. Bashers drive nice and tend not to break their rigs on purpose. True bashers are always true gentlemen! Believe it or not, Team Corallys Punisher XP 6S is a basher that has style but it has also speed. Like a lots of it! Rather than just another RC truck it is more like a barrel of dynamite and the fuse is already burning. Duck and cover!

Team Corallys basher and stunt trucks are probably the best what market has to offer today. Don't get what everyone else already has - get something better. Team Corally in our shop here!

Free(dom) Willys

RC Crawling often shakes hands with scale modelling hobby. I was also a scale model builder once until I found the light in the shape of modern RC offroad scale trucks. Scale RC combines these two worlds in very delicate way. One can be easily fooled with the realistic look of these tiny trucks!

We have plenty of traditional crawler kits available for you to build but today I want to show you the most realistic and inspiring crawler we have - ROC Hobby 1:6 Military Scaler. Check out all the mouth watering features of this highly detailed and offroad capable Freedom Truck by clicking that link or the image above.

The Flagship

Xray has moved the goal posts once again when it comes to the best of the market 1:8 GT Touring Cars. Fresh and just released, Xray GTXE'22 and Nitro powered GTX'22 are real Instruments of Winning.

Now there are reasons why these professional level RC kits are not cheap. It's because nothing is compromised. It's because not a single part is changed to cheaper option to gain more market value. It's because Xray cars are made in Europe and under serious quality control. Simply put it's because Xray is hands down the best professional RC manufacturer in the world today. Change my mind!

Check out Xray Kits from our shop here!

B for Buggy

Legendary buggy kit from Team Associated is already in its sixth generation. B6.3 is a premium level of competition buggy without a question but can be easily recommended for someone who is just getting in to RC offroad racing. Both carpet/astroturf and dirt versions available to suit your favorite surface.

New features include but are not limited to a +3mm longer chassis, new wide pivot rear aluminum arm mounts, new servo mounting system with integrated transponder mount, updated carbon shock towers, Octalock-spur gear and bunch of more! Read full presentation from our shop! Details about Dirt version can be found here.

This coming weekend looks like perfect for some RC fun. My longtime friend is coming for a visit this weekend. Official plan is that he is about to help me with a renovation for my house. Now don't tell anyone but what we are really about is to shoot some slow paced crawling videos but also to have some brainless bashing action fun with my Team Corally Shogun! Renos can wait rainy days, having fun in the sun is more important!

See you again next week, and greetings from Finland!
