    HPI Supports D1RC Crew at Silverstone

    June 4, 2009 - 16:36 by Kevin 0 Comments


    “D1RC at the Japanese Tuning Show / European Drift Championship, 31 May  Boy, that was fun! Despite unearthly early starts for us all, the D1RC Drift Display Squad descended on Silverstones hallowed paddock for what was to be a super sized successful day of exhibition drifting in front of our biggest crowd since we began in 2005. Invited to display by our good friends at ‘EDC Need for Speed’, we hit the gates at 6.30 after most of us had already been on the road for several hours. The JTS organisers couldn’t have been more helpful and within an hour we had our track laid, fencing in place, banners up and our new pa system waking the dead! The weather forecast was a sunny 26C and, for once, they got it right and we fried right through to around 6pm when the ebbing crowds allowed us to stop and go! The hours between were filled with great drift track action where we ran no less than five back to back 16 car finals and, thanks to a very generous HPI Europe, we had great drift related prizes for all 10 finalists. Best of all though was the support we received from the crowds that gathered three deep to watch the action. If any of us dared to venture from the garages to the crowd fencing we were immediately collared by spectators who wanted to know about the cars, how much, how hard to drive and, most importantly of all, where could they buy one! If only a retailer stand had been in the neighbouring bay they would have been kept very busy! Drifting has at last come of age in the UK and this is reflecting in interest in 1/10th electric drift cars too. Let’s hope the momentum continues.” Find Out More… [Source - hpi-europe.com]

    ProTek 1/8th Buggy Super Hauler Bag

    June 4, 2009 - 16:02 by Kevin 0 Comments


    “The ProTek R/C P-8 super hauler bag was designed from the ground up for 1/8th scale buggy racers. The bag has space on top under a covered flap for storing all your tools, a place on the back for your setup board and storage compartments on the side for storing your setup equipment or other tools. Inside the bag has three layers of drawers, with four split draws on the bottom (two each side by side above each other) and one large drawer on the top. These are the newer style Hauler Bags that have plastic inner boxes. The large drawer on the top is large enough to hold a 1/8th scale buggy with wing and wheels attached! In addition, it is also very easy to tow the bag around the track as it features a cool retractable handle and smooth trolley wheels. Also included is a carrying strap that can be moved out of the way to access tools in the top compartment, or adjusted to provide easy carrying of the bag.”

    Bag dimensions are:

    Width: 21.65″
    Height: 23.22″
    Depth: 13.77″
