Throughout 2014 so far Ty Tessmann has been hammering the competition with his awesome driving, fantastic teamwork, and dedication to his craft, aided by Team Tessmann (his parents and family) and HB designer Torrance Deguzman. Along the way, he’s claimed multiple major championship titles, such as the Pro-Line Dual, The Dirt Nitro Challenge, The Neo ’14 and yet another ROAR Nationals win.
While setting up your car like Ty won’t necessarily guarantee a National Championship win of your own…it certainly takes you one step closer! HPI Racing and Ty Tessmann have released his most recent race winning D812, D413, and D8T setups HERE.
Spy shots have surfaced of MIP’s Pro8 Prototype that MIP’s Matt Olson has been running for the last month. The MIP Pro8 currently comes as a upgrade/conversion kit for the Losi SCTE 1.0 and 2.0 platforms to make it into a competitive light weight 1/8 scale buggy. The new MIP Pro8 Prototype takes the Pro8 project full circle by completely changing the traditional layout of an MIP Pro4mance or an SCTE 1.0 / 2.0 chassis. The new chassis redistributes the weight accordingly making the car all around more aggressive than it has been before.
There is currently no release date for the Pro8 prototype chassis but it will be competing around the country over the next few months at the hands of many of MIP’s top racers. The current Pro8 kit on the market will not change but if the project does come into production there will now be a chassis to accompany the upgrade/conversion kit for the Losi SCTE 2.0 platform.

Hobby-Pro USA shared a few “teaser” shots of the new HB401 1/10 4wd buggy earlier this week, and today PR Racing has released full photos of the new SB401. Hobby-Pro USA is the importer for PR Racing products, and works closely with the company to further develop products, putting their “twist” on things.
