When dreams come true.. - Hobby Letter #21/21

6.7.2021

Greetings! Heikki from EuroRC here and hoping that everyone is already enjoying the sun with their favourite beverage and big bowl of ice cream!

Summer time is time of dream cars. You see all those classic American Muscle cars rolling down the street along the old 2CVs or Volkswagen Beetles. My personal soft spot are old German cars but what I really appreciate is the amount of labor and hours people put in their projects.

Now, you don't need to have a cartwheel full of cash and large sized garage to have the car of your dreams. You can get the same kicks in the smaller scale too! What is your dream car? Here in EuroRC we have a plenty of those so let's take a quick browse!

To keep up whats happening at our store remember to follow our Facebook, Instagram (dont forget our special EuroRC Warehouse Instagram to catch up the latest arrivals and inshots of daily RC shop life!) and of course our official EuroRC YouTube Channel!

Porsche 911 Carrera RSR

Icon.. Legend.. Immortal.. Porsche 911 Carrera RSR is everything mentioned. One could say that this car does not need any introduction. Original 911 2.8 liter engine RSR prototypes were built for the 1973 World Sports Car Championship. This car won all the most important races such as Daytona 24h, last-ever Targa Florio and has placed fourth in Le Mans to mention some.

For many, Porsche 911 RSR is the dream car and now you can build it in more convenient size from another immortal legend, Tamiya! Find Tamiya Porsche 911 RSR kit from our shop here!

Full sized price: starting from 100 000 €

Traxxas BigFoot No.1

You may have a garage or an access to one. I am anyhow pretty sure that you do not have a full sized, original monster truck just chilling there. Also, where would you drive it? (OK if you have a monster truck you can drive just everywhere you want!) Traxxas has captured some of true monster truck spirit in their BigFoot No.1 in the scale of 1:10. Let the crushing begin!

Find Traxxas BigFoot No.1 in our shop behind this link!

Full sized price: Starting from 150000e for "unassmbled kit".

HPI Racing Ford GT Heritage Edition

Another on-the-road legend, this time from HPI Racing. Original Ford GT is a mid-engine, two seated pure blood racing car that pays respect to GT40, Ford's legendary winning racer from the golden days of motorsport. Released 2006, Ford GT Heritage Edition with Gulf-livery has quickly become a highly wanted collectible as only 364 cars were produced. Talk about a small batch!

HPI Racing has put their fastest brushless RTR electronics in to their scale replica and you can easily make this dedicated on-road racing machine hit the speeds of 113km/h! Ford GT Heritage Edition Flux Brushless RTR from HPI Racing here!

Full sized price: approx 395 000 euros. (Auctioned price from 2015 at Mecums Austin and most expensive auction that year)

GMade Buffalo TS Kit

Can I Dream? I want to build an excellent performing offroad scale truck! Now, there are bunch of RTR replicas out there just waiting that you install the battery and head the trails. My dream car is built, not bought!

When it comes to scale crawlers and serious off road adventuring my pick for today would be GMade Buffalo TS Civilian Version. This kit has plenty of nice features such as overdrive in the front (helps in the climbs) and two-speed gearbox to pick few. Body is realistic in details and I can paint it as fresh or as rusty as I want.

Check out Buffalo TS here! True scale builders should check these bit more professional GMade TS chassis-only and GMade TA Pro Chassis kits.

Full sized offroad trucks: to build a performing one prepare to spend +10 000 €

All dreams never come true but some do! I find myself getting much of the same kicks (Speed! Fun! Excitement!) from one-tenth scale cars as I get from the real ones and I know that I am not alone.

Oh you want the XB2 buggy update! Allright! I've made it to the "Final assembly" pages where you are supposed to install some electronics. Still looking what to get for ESC and Motor (I have one that is too big and three what are just slow in my Random Box) but for servo I chose our brand new Halko Turner 1.0! Check out the spectacular specifications of our first in-house branded Halko RC Car servo from that link or click the image above! Take care, see you next week!

Sunny greetings from Finland!
