Parma SpeedFlo SCT Body
The folks over at Parma have redesigned their SPEEDFLO body with more cab forward styling and updated aerodynamics. The new body, the SPEEDFLO 2.0, fits all popular 1/10 short course trucks and is said to have more front down force than the previous model. The updated aerodynamics can give your truck more steering and less chassis roll, while large vent holes are easy to cut out and help prevent parachuting over big jumps.

The SPEEDFLO 2.0 comes in .040″, part number #1243, and in .030″, part number #1243L. Both are priced at $41 and you can get more information by hitting up the official Parma Website.

Duratrax r/c paint
Pactra left a big hole in the paint market when it was discontinued, leaving many customers wondering where they would get their favorite colors from. Whenever there is a demand, there will be someone to fill in the supply, and now we’ve learned that Duratrax is coming out with a new R/C paint line-up. The Duratrax R/C Paint line will feature a wide variety of colors and be available in both rattle cans and for the airbrush crowd. No pricing or release date information has been announced yet, but we will post when we receive it.

Serpent Pre-painted 8th Scale Cobra GT Body
If you’ve read BSRC for any length of time then you already know we are big fans of pre-painted bodies. None of our staffers have any painting skillz, and quite frankly we would rather spend more time with our families or outside driving than wielding a rattle can. Today the fine folks over at Serpent announced a new Pre-Painted 1/8th Cobra GT Body. The body comes in their signature orange color and fits short wheelbase GT cars (325mm). It has a large rear wing for loads of downforce and is molded out of top quality polycarbonate.

The part number is #170311 and you can get more information over on the official Serpent Website.
