    Reedy’s Pro Silicone Wire was developed for the experienced racer who demands maximum power output, light weight, and flexibility. Ultra thin strands of high grade copper provide efficient current flow while thin-walled silicone insulation increases flexibility and reduces weight.

    Now by popular demand, Reedy’s Pro Silicone 12- and 14-gauge wire is available in bulk on 30m spools. Whether you are a consumer looking for a volume price break or a hobby shop that wants to offer wire by length, Reedy’s 30m spools are the answer.

    tv show

    We have received news of an exciting new project today, that could very well be the biggest thing to hit R/C racing. TV show producer, Adam Hackbarth, has reached out to us in search of R/C racers to participate in an all-new R/C racing television show currently in development!

    Adam says, “We aim to have the show be a fun blend of great personalities and great racing. We are presenting the show to Coolfire Media, who has expressed interest in the show – provided we find R/C racing fanatics with great personalities or great stories. Coolfire Media is one of the companies behind the Discovery Channel show Fast N’ Loud – as well as a number of other television programs.”

    Producers are looking for R/C racers like YOU, and encourage those interested in sending a “video audition”. The video does NOT need to be a professional video, as Adam says a simple smart phone video will do. Want to join the show? Now’s your chance to try-out by simply send a video introducing yourself, expressing your love for R/C, and whatever you feel best represents you as a TV worthy R/C enthusiast to AdamHackbarth@Outlook.com!

    The Hungarian Nitro Onroad Championship headed to Oroshaza, Hungary, where the 3rd round of the series was held. The weather was extremly hot, and fuel consumption became a big challenge for racers. In the EFRA 200mm class, Gabor Laszlo finished on the top of the podium. He started the 30 min final from the 5th position, but he jumped up to the 1st position after only a few laps, and he drove his XRAY NT1 mistake-free for the win 5 laps ahead of the field!

    Race results:
    1. Gabor Laszlo

    How long will ROAR’s Trinity D4 approval last?

    July 10, 2014 - 18:30 by Mike Garrison 0 Comments


    Trinity has announced today that the new D4 brushless motor line has been ROAR Approved! After the highly controversial debate over the D3 series, we suspect the necessary steps to ensure a thorough and solid approval has been taken this round.

    As you may recall, the widely used Trinity 17.5 D3 motor was first approved by ROAR, but later disapproved by the sanctioning body. This led to controversy crossing the globe between racers, promoters, hobby shops, and of course ROAR and Trinity. Read more…
