Well, the Pro-Line front wing helps to keep the front of your 1/10th scale buggy planted when coming out of corners, helping you to lower your lap times.

Drift Itch – This week in drift

Whats up drifters? Evol here in a bit of a reflective mood as the year 2015 winds to an end.

Drift Itch – RWD is here to stay

Well its happened. The stars have aligned and I acknowledge beyond all doubt the RWD drift is here to stay. It’s easy to dismiss early signs of a shift in a movement when scrappy young companies like Max Speed Technology litter the ground with new RWD kits like heads lopped off in a Game of Thrones episode. Easy to dismiss [...]
