Our friends from Hemistorm recently posted a video Visiting the FG Factory (yes the high-end 5th scale stuff) – and had a chance to interview Mr. F. Gröschl. It’s subtitled for your convenience since these guys are over in Germany. Some interesting stuff, and worth checking out if you are into a little large scale industry stuff. Check the full video below.
We first reported about the new buggy from Helion, the Criterion, Right Here. Now Helion has released a video showing just how fast the Criterion is. Using a radar gun and some old fashioned street running, the video shows the top speeds of the Criterion compared to several of its competitors. The Criterion is shown topping out at 33 mph, pretty fast for a 7 cell brushed buggy.
Pro-Line’s new upgrade tire for the Traxxas Summit is the Rock Rage 3.8. These were designed to increase traction on a variety of surfaces with its futuristic tread pattern.

Check out the video below to learn more about Rock Rage tires from Pro-Line’s Gerardo Gonzalez and to see the new tires in action. The Rock Rages have a part number of #1199-00 and a street price of $30 a pair.

It is quite common to see someone at the local bash spot getting some cool on-board footage using a GoPro or other type of action camera on their truck. The latest entry into that market comes from Garmin with their VIRB and VIRB Elite cameras.
What sets the Garmin VIRBs apart is their ability to record for up to 3 hours on one 2000 mah battery and their 1.4″ LCD screen that can be used to preview footage or to navigate menus. Digital image stability helps make video more stable, while Garmin’s ANT+ technology allows you to log GPS coordinates to your video clips. Both models can shoot 1080p at 30 frames per second. The Elite adds WiFi, a built in altimeter, and positioning sensors.
The VIRB will have a street price of $299 while the Elite is a bit higher at $399. Both cameras start shipping in September. For more information simply click This Link.
