fid baja brake

We recently posted information about the new 4 Wheel Hydraulic Disc Brake System from FID Racing, and people went ‘oohhhhh’.

Well, they just let us know there is a video of the system in action. Talk about loosing some rubber on the stops, this system brings that vehicle to a halt! The HPI Baja 5B in the shop may just need a upgrade for 2013!

Don’t forget you can check the FID Racing Website for more details on this and all of their other products.

JQ Products THE RTR Snow Bash Video
There is nothing more fun after a fresh snowfall than heading outside for some snow bashing. JQ Products has just posted a neat video featuring their new THE RTR 8th scale nitro buggy and two boys getting their bash on outside in the white fluffy stuff. The video shows that the rc hobby really is great fun- anytime, anywhere and for anyone.

The new JQ Products RTR buggy goes on sale later this month with a street price of only $299, which should make it a good option for many of you bashers out there. Check out the video below for some snow bashing action, and hit up the official JQ Products Website for more information on all of their products.

We do NOT condone this, nor do we recommend messing with any type of officials of any kind. Heck, we only had maybe 2 police incidents this year, which is way better than previous years! All that being said, this was one of those videos (even though it may be wrong) that made me laugh. Those TBS Discovery guys are nuts.

Speaking of quads, have you seen all of our recent Quad Reviews?

Thunder Tiger eMTA video Cap
The guys over at Thunder Tiger have released a new video for their latest uber basher, the e-MTA monster truck. The video showcases some of the features of the new Thunder Tiger e-MTA and also contains some pretty sic bashing footage. The e-MTA looks impressive in the video, with lots of wheelies, and standing back and front flips. But just a little warning- watching this video will make you wish you were at your favorite bash spot right now!

pro-line 2012 video
2012 is the 30th anniversary year for Pro-Line and no doubt they made it epic.

Below is a short video that the Pro-Line team worked up to list some of their big wins in 2012, give it a watch.

Electric Bigfoot 20 Car Crushing
Electric power has been the dominant force in rc for years now, and we see it creep more and more into the full size scene.

Take a look at the video below to see their latest creation using all that electric torque and power to crush a pair of passenger cars. We can’t wait to see more of the new Bigfoot #20 in action.

Tamiya RC Soccer
Playing rc soccer is a popular way of bashing with your buddies here in the states, but from this video it looks like the Tamiya guys have taken it to a whole new level overseas. As seen in this video, goals with actual nets are used, and the field itself looks in pristine condition. Now if we can just get Brian to put a field like that in one of our back offices. :)
