Coral Springs Florida, is the home of Coral Springs RC Track. The outdoor Off-Road Track can accommodate 1/10 and 1/8 scale vehicles and it recently had a layout change. The new layout features a mean looking washboard section, some great jumps and what appears to be impeccable grooming. If you like to go fast, they also have a 100% clay Oval Track, that has 17.5′ lanes all the way around, 311 feet center line, and high banked turns to help you carry your speed.

I had never heard of a “StickBomb” until this video, initially I thought the ”C” in Stick was suppose to be an “N”. But after watching this video of a Radio Controlled Subaru WRX STi racing a “StickBomb” on the Subaru Global channel, I was pretty impressed and fortunately my confusion was cleared up pretty quick.
will be rolling out Puck Drive Systems
for all Mod 2wd vehicles. These systems will be made of steel and will be approx. the same overall weight as the stock setup.
“No longer will diff outdrives and CV bones wear simultaneously, with the puck system all that is needed is to easily change pucks when necessary and the drivetrain stays tighter, fresh, longer. This added benefit equates to less money, less time off the track for rebuilds, and keeps your vehicle more competitive.”
The first release of this product is for the Schumacher line of 2wd buggies including the KR and SV2. MIP Part # 14100
and is available now at a MSRP of $85.00

TLR 22 2.0 , 22 SCT, 22T
Kyosho RB6 , RB5 , SCR , RT6, RT5

Last May when Bill Jeric and Horizon Hobby suddenly parted ways, there were more questions than answers. In September of last year, Bill Jeric, along with his wife Theresa formed the Jeric Group LLC, which according to its website, specializes in Product Development, Marketing and Supply Chain Consulting. TJG currently has 3 clients looking to take their brand to the next level; Tuning Haus offers premium accessories and option parts for F1, touring, and other on-road categories, Prime RC offers choice products for hobby enthusiast and more recently TJG has added RC brand Carisma to its stable, which will make Carisma products available in the U.S.
This appears to be a great move for Carisma, I have a Formula 1 car made by them, they make some great products but can’t seem to gain much more then their current market share. If anybody can help them get a bigger piece of the pie, or develop new products, it will be Bill Jeric and The Jeric Group LLC.

These bead lock wheel and tire sets are produced by Madmax which is an RC parts manufacturer for Big Scale RC cars such as Losi 5ive, HPI Baja 5b, 5T Trucks etc.
These Madmax Wheel and tire sets have several different tire patterns. The big digger is designed to clean out rocky roads and also gain good traction on sandy or even muddy lands, so they are the perfect set for cross road conditions. On the other hand, the arrow pattern allows the Baja to run smoothly on the flat roads, it can gain maximum forward power when running on straight roads. The mixed pattern is more versatile which performs well on both road conditions. It is for those who have limited budgets and do not want to spend too much money just on the wheels.
The wheel and beadlock material is made of very hard nylon which provides a lighter weight. The wheels are very strong. The bead locks can lock the tires firmly to the wheel so the tires are held in place in all sorts of tough racing conditions. The wheel width of the front and rear wheels are 60mm and 80mm, wheel diameter size 120mm, with metal reinforcements around the 120mm hex hubs for extra durability, this part can fit into the 5B RTR/5B SS/5T perfectly.
There are many different types of tire patterns to choose from.
