The crew over at Reedy have a new Lipo battery ready to power your 8th scale buggy or truggy. The latest Reedy Lipo is 4S (14.8 volts) and rated for 4600 mah of capacity to provide long run-times. The new Reedy is stated to handle 55C worth of continuous discharge and be capable of a 2C charge rate (9.2 amps). 5mm bullets are used to connect the wiring to the pack.
Part number for the Reedy 4S 4600 55C is #311 (cool band btw), they should start hitting hobby shops in late June, and they have a street price of $170. Check out THIS LINK for more information over on the official Team Associated website.

Something about the latest press release from Reedy caught my eye. They announced that at the upcoming Reedy Race, Mercedes Terrell (Miss Reedy Race 2012) and her fellow “Monster Girl” Summer Daniels will be at the 2013 Off Road Event.
We all like to see the occasional pretty girl, and they tend to stick out at a RC race, but does there need to be a press release for this? I understand sending out PR for your race, you want to let people know about it, and the more people that show up the better, but it just seems odd to mention that there will be girls there, handing out trophies. Don’t get me wrong, I have NOTHING against pretty girls, or hiring them to hand stuff out (we do it all the time) but press releases are normally saved for important things, big news.. if the highlight of your race event is the girls, it may be time to re-think your format.
I have apparently been hanging around Cubby too much!

New from Reedy is this 250mAh 6.6 Receiver liFe. This battery is aimed at those running 1/10 and 1/12 scale vehicles on 1S (Some classes don’t try and jam as many lipo cells as possible into their vehicles?) that need a receiver battery. The battery includes an integrated switch to allow it to be shut off when not in use, and a separate non-switched jack can be used for charging. That’s actually a pretty cool little feature!

Reedy have announced a new 7.4v ”Shorty” Li-Po for the racers out there. However if you do fancy bashing it, there’s no need to worry, because it’s 60c 4000mah cells are protected by a hardcase. Sounds like another Li-Po right? WRONG. It’s called “Shorty” for a reason – its short! That means you can slide it about in your standard sized battery tray for perfect weight distribution.

The peeps over at Reedy have a couple new brushless motor and speed controller combos available for the SC10 4×4. The Sphere TC-Spec speed controller offers a 3A BEC, low profile heat sink, fan control, and advanced digital phase control. The X-12L motor is a 550 sized motor with the PreciSensor system to make sure you motor never cogs. The kits are available in a 4.5, 5.0. and 5.5 turn setup. Reedy advertises them as an affordable combo, but MSRP is a little steep in my eyes. Let’s hope it comes down when we actually see these guys later this month.
