THE RPM RC Products Hop-Ups for Losi Ten SCTE Review
Your truck is not a true bash-mobile unless it has RPM parts on it. In our quest to make our Losi SCTE the most bash-worthy truck possible, we installed a bunch of RPM hop-up parts. Today we’ll be taking a closer look, are the RPM Losi SCTE hop-up parts worth the cash? Read on…
If you are a loyal electric Traxxas Slash, Stampede, Bandit, or Rustler owner, then you already know some of the downside of the stock gearbox. One of the biggest problems is the motor bolts to a plastic plate rather than metal, not giving a place for all that motor heat to dissipate to.
RPM Products is legendary in the bashing world and are proud to announce their new hybrid gearbox housing and rear mounts for Traxxas electric 2wd’s. The kit comes with a new gearbox case, a 3mm thick 6061 aluminum motor plate, and 0 degree and 3 degree rear mounts. You can get the kit in three different colors- blue, green, and black, and they have a retail price of only $30. Also, each kit has been designed and manufactured right here in the USA. Hit up the RPM Website for more information on all their uber-basher products.

THE RPM RC Products A-Arm’s For The Axial EXO Terra Buggy Review
Today we’ll be taking a closer look at the RPM front and rear upgrade a-arms for the Axial EXO Terra Buggy. Since first getting the EXO it has been one of the most driven vehicles in our entire stable of test-mobiles. And being wired the way we are, over time our EXO has suffered some pretty serious beatings. Most recently we used the EXO in our BigSquidRC demo’s at the iHobby Cleveland track, which basically means hucking as huge as we possibly can for 4 days straight while landing to a thin layer of carpet over concrete. After iHobby we noticed all the stock arms were basically taco’ed out and needing replacment, luckily RPM had just sent us some of their uber-basher arms for review. Are the RPM arms better than the stockers? Are they worthy of your cash? Let’s find out…
Good news for all you Durango DESC410R drivers, RPM announced today they are now making ultra durable front and rear a-arms for your truck. Some of the features are-
* Lighter than stock (by 1.5 grams each)
* Beefed up hinge pin areas
* Less slop than stock
* Front suspension arm bushings moved from outside to inside for smoother movement
* Black in color
* Front part #73892
* Rear part #73772
Street price on the RPM Durango a-arms is $15 a pair with an expected release date of November 8th. Hit up the official RPM Website for more information on all their uber-basher products.

The four piece design has multiple curves and shapes to help dispense that energy. We do a lot of short course demo derby around here, I have a feeling there are going to be a few of these sets on order! The price when it hits the streets is less than $10!
