pepsi_cooler_rc

I think we are going to have to find some room in our budget for this! Check out the RC Pepsi Cooler! It holds 32 cans of your favorite beverages. Created by a roto-mold process which makes it super durable, has working headlights, speakers, 2 cup holders, and can drive forward, backward, left and right with a 100 foot range.

The price is a little tough to swallow at $375, but come on.. this is a bash day necessity! If you are willing to give up the branding, they have the same ones in your choice of color for about $299.

You can head over now to the Custom Cooler Website, or find them on sale tomorrow at the offical Pepsi Website.

Rhinoforce S2 Self Righting System
Everyone hates making “the walk of shame”. You know what I mean, after a crash that shameful walk to flip your truck over while your “friends” poke fun at you.

To permanently put an end to the walk of shame, the Torsional Concepts crew came up with the RhinoForce S2 Self-Righting System. The RhinoForce is designed to flip your truck back onto its wheels by the flip of a switch on your transmitter, instead of you having to walk over and manually right the vehicle. We received one of their units for review and decided to do an unboxing post so you can see what comes in the package. As you can see from the pictures above and below, the RhinoForce comes with everything needed for installation in a short course truck (with a roll cage already installed) and some clearly written instructions.

Our full review will go live in a few weeks, until then you can hit up the Official RhinoForce Website for more details.
