Yokomo B-MAX2 MR V3 KitBack in the day, I spent many hours throwing down laps with a Yokomo Super Dog Fighter. It sure could bust out some fast laps in those glory years for Yokomo here in America. While Yokomo might not be the powerhouse it once was, they are still big in Asia and you can still get their products here in the states.

Yokomo recently announced their latest 1/10th 2wd buggy, the B-MAX2 MR Version 3. It comes with a tough aluminum chassis and can do both mid-motor and rear motor configurations. Other highlights from the V3 include a new rear suspension mount, new bottom shock caps, and a new cab-forward style body. It has a part number of #B-MAX2MR3 and you can hit up This Link for more details.

ARC R10 ATS
The touring car world continues to push the envelope on trick designs. The latest comes from ARC with their R10 ATS 1/10 touring car. The ATS stands for active toe system. This is a type of rear suspension that changes toe as the suspension compresses, leading to more on-power steering when coming out of a corner.

The ATS system isn’t the only cool thing on the new car, it comes loaded with carbon fiber, trick front CVDs, and pretty much every other feature you are looking for in a high-end touring car. It has a part number of #R100009 and you can find full details at This Link over on ARC’s website.
