Racers Edge have just released their first RC truck - the Pro2 Short Course Truck. They aren’t getting much attention at the moment, but they deserve a whole lot more, because what you’re seeing right here is a 2.4ghz equipped 1/10 brushless short course truck for under $190….. :D
Although it fails to meet up to some of the spec of “pro” level kits, it looks to be more than capable of one-upping a Traxxas Slash 2wd and other RTR SC trucks.
Expect sharp steering and a stiff chassis from a red-anodized aluminum front brace and servo saver. Ball bearings, nerf bars, mud flaps, oil-filled shocks, CVD’s and adjustable steel turnbuckles are all included out of the box, and the car is topped with either a blue or red shell. Most of the car is made from “Mega-Flex Plastic” which has been developed to give a good compromise between fun and durability.
You writin’ this down, Santa?
If you’re still stuck in the stone ages with non-2.4 GHz radio gear, and you’re constantly having problems with glitching, Racers Edge might have a cheap solution for you. Their new Glitch Buster Power Capacitor is intended to help smooth out those power dips that could cause glitching. The capacitor is prewired and plugs into any free channel on your receiver, it then takes a charge from the battery or ESC, and stores that energy for times when your servo or other electronics might take more power than the battery alone can provide.
It’s a cheap option, only $5.99 MSRP, but it could help solve some glitching problems for you, without having to jump to a 2.4 GHz radio system. Check out the Racers Edge website for more info.
Designed for the B/T4, B44, and the SC10 Racers Edge shows their dedication to quality with the aluminum rear hub carriers. Adding a 1/2 degree rear toe in these carriers are sure to keep the line on the back straight! Hard Silver and CNC machined with a laser engraved degree as well as a L and a R (for those that can’t tell) the design is top notch.
