The 2015 Dirt Nitro Challenge is in the books! Another epic event has concluded, and NeoBuggy’s Stephen Bess has collected his thoughts on this year’s event.
“The RC industry is better for having The Dirt Nitro Challenge in it. There’s simply nothing else like it. Several pros said that the DNC is “the RC world’s Daytona 500,” or is “the RC equivalent of Woodstock/Bonnaroo.” People come from all over the country, and all over the world, just to say they raced the Nitro Challenge. I’ve attended approximately 10 of the 16 Nitro Challenges, and this year’s was one for the ages in both good and not so good ways…“

Schelle is excited to introduce a new 1/10 2-piece hub concept with the new Team Associated B5 Aluminum Hubs. The 2-piece hub design with replaceable upper increases adjustment and durability. The upper cap design can space away from the main hub with ballstud shims, allowing racers fine “in-between” adjustments for the rear upper link. True to the kit geometry, the zero degree toe aluminum hubs are a symmetric design with shared parts left and right. The upper cap design reduces leverage on the outer ballstud, as well as increasing shock clearance for the turnbuckle.
ProTek’s all-new 2S-4S 4-Battery Parallel Charger Board (PTK-5335) will enable you to charge up to four batteries simultaneously, while balancing the individual cells of each pack. The Parallel Charger Board is encased in an impact-resistant custom-molded plastic shell and is compatible with LiPo, Li-Ion and LiFe batteries. The DC input and battery port are protected with replaceable fuses, and each cell and balance wire is protected with self-resetting poly fuses.
When you need multiple packs charged in a hurry, this is the best option. Plug in up to four batteries of the same chemistry with a standard T-style connector and balance lead, it’s that simple. The Parallel Charger board only works when charging batteries of the same cell count, similar age and similar discharge rates. If those requirements are met, you’re good to let the juice flow.
