Hemistorm Penta Losi 5IVE Body Bolt On Fenders

Hemistorm Penta Body Bolt On FendersBack in May we posted about Hemistorm’s radical new Penta body for the 1/5th scale Losi 5IVE short course truck. While the Hemistorm Penta was truly awesome looking, by using it Losi 5IVE owners were giving up the short course appearance for that of a fender-less Class 1 Truggy. That’s where Hemistorm’s newest product comes into play. These new bolt on fenders not only allow you to transform your Penta body to a short course truck but they have one very distinct advantage over the Losi body. Unlike the one piece stock body, Hemistorm’s multi-piece setup allows you to switch out each fender separately as they get damaged, saving you tons of time and money in the process. Read more…

Pro-Line Announces Two New 2wd Buggy Tires

ProLine Tazer 2wd Buggy Rear TiresPro-Line just announced two new tires aimed at the off road 2wd buggy crowd. With the new Tazer 2.2″ Pro-Line has created a race tire that provides unmatched forward bite in loose and dusty track conditions without the undesired edginess. The Tazer features large overlapping center treads that will last throughout the long A-mains and perfectly sized lugs that will propel you to the top of the podium. If you race your buggy outdoors, then you need Pro-Line’s new Hole Shot 2wd front tires. Unlike the typical ribbed front tire, the new Hole Shot 2WD fronts are super smooth while still maintaining all the steering you need. Ribbed fronts are known for doing the catch-and-grab at the wrong time leading to inconsistent handling. Pro-Line’s new Hole Shot front tires set the new standard in steering for every outdoor track condition, from super loose to hard-packed. Read more…
