Rock Crawling Course

A rocking crawling course is an inexpensive way to attract customers into your store. There is not much maintenance involved and you could host competitions easily. All you need is a small area and some obstacles. Here are a few examples:

Rocks can be found anywhere and could be bought at an inexpensive price. You can even ask some of your customers if they can get some for you. If you cannot get rocks, Axial shows you how to make some artificial ones. Here is a link: For little to no cost, these courses are a lot of fun and will entertain a crowd of people in your store.

Robitronic Servo Horns

These new servo horns clamp down with the two screws onto the servo, which makes them harder to come off. This also eliminates slop that could strip the servo horn that are common with other brands. They fit in most vehichle, but especially good for rock crawling, touring cars, and 1/8 scale buggies and truggies for the steering servos.

STRC Hinge Pins

Here is the new STRC Hinge Pins for the Traxxas Stampede, Rustler, Slash, and Bandit. They come in two colors, black (part#ST3640BK) and silver(part#ST3640S). The STRC hinge pins are a good upgrade for these car since they are stronger than the original hinge pins. These hinge pins use lock-nuts to hold the pins in place. This eliminates the use of e-clips and secures the threaded hinge pins that could come unscrewed from the a-arms. Since there will be no threaded hinge pins in the a-arms, it makes the a-arms smoother and free from binding.

STRC3640BK MSRP $16.99

STRC3640S MSRP $16.99

DNA Sniper Wheels

Here are the DNA Sniper 2.2 Wheels for the Axial AX10 (part#DNA310), Wheelie King/Berg (part#DNA206). They are made from solid aluminum and weigh 6.5 oz's for each wheel. The weight of the wheels are better for crawling since it lowers the crawlers center of gravity and also adds traction to the wheels. DNA also changed the offset of the wheels for better handling. DNA also make the Sniper Wheels in 1.9 for the Losi Mini Crawler (part#DNA403) and they weigh 4oz's for each wheel.

Tamiya Tuner Kit

This is the tuner kit from Tamiya (part#TAM54139). The tuner kit is good for people trying to make their rc cars look more realistic. This is the first kit that I have seen that the brake rotors comes in different sizes. The front rotors are bigger than the back, which is just like a real car. The kit also comes with mirrors, windshield wipers, exhaust, and an inter cooler. Drifters and people who are running RCGT ( will really like this kit because it has pretty much everything in it and at an affordable too, only $17.50.
