AE Exchange Programs – LRP Exchange Program Ending Soon!

Posted on Wednesday, May 4th, 2011 | in News | No Comments

Team Associated, Reedy, and LRP do something really cool and that is they let RC drivers and hobbyists like us exchange our stuff for upgrades at a sweet discount or free of charge. I will tell you about a couple of them, starting with one that is ending soon!

If any of you know about the LRPSXX Stock Spec V.2 Exchange Program, took advantage of it or want to, this is your warning that it is ending soon, unfortunately! If you aren’t sure whether you would like to take advantage of it, here are some of the basics of the program.

Basically, the exchange program allows anyone in North America to exchange an SXX Stock Spec (LRP80910) for a SXX Stock Spec V.2 (LRP80915) FREE OF CHARGE. Yes, for free! They do this so that everyone can get a chance to save some money and upgrade their equipment. That’s pretty awesome. Read on »»

Posted on Friday, April 29th, 2011 | in News | 4 Comments

Hey guys! I have an update for you for all of you who like HPI! We at RC Nightmare own the HPI Blitz that you’ll see us running a lot in our RC Videos Section, I feel like I’ve talked a lot about HPI lately, but that is because they’ve been coming out with some new stuff and new looks for their cars and trucks and it has been catching my attention. I most recently gave you a first glance and review of the updated HPI E-Firestorm Flux and today we’re going to take a look at  HPI’s newest update – the Firestorm 10T RTR 1/10th scale 2WD nitro powered truck. The Firestorm 10T initially came out in 2007 and got some pretty good reviews. People weren’t used to seeing 2WD stadium trucks coming from HPI and they were really excited about this truck.

AE Factory Team RC10R5 Kit Is Back

Posted on Wednesday, April 27th, 2011 | in News | 1 Comment

Here is some RC news for you: Team Associated has announced that their Factory Team RC10R5 Kit is back for a limited time. The RC10R5 was introduced by Team Associated in 2008 into the fast-growing 1:10 scale World GT onroad racing class. When this RC was designed, it was based off of  the highly successful 1:12 scale Factory Team RC12R5 platform. In fact, this car uses 90% of the same parts as the RC12R5. The designers built this bigger RC10R5 on a 2.5mm woven carbon fiber chassis that utilizes a pivot-ball link rear suspension that allows for independent adjustments for chassis roll, bump and alignment.

Here are some of the other features:

Factory Team RC10R5

  • Designed to fit World GT racing class specs
  • Wide rear pod is balance-optimized for brushless motors and features Factory Team blue aluminum machined motor mount and left bulkhead
  • Factory Team pivot ball-link chassis allows for independent adjustment for roll, bump, and alignment
  • The pivot ball-link chassis has proven to be more durable in high speed impacts and better in bumpy track conditions
  • Factory Team shocks feature a through-shaft design, making for equal damping with no rebound in both directions
  • Updated active strut front end features symmetric components with adjustable caster and track width, as well as a new front axle with wheel nut Read on »»

HAPPY EASTER FROM RC NIGHTMARE!

Posted on Sunday, April 24th, 2011 | in News | No Comments

I hope you got some good candy and maybe even an RC in your basket! And don’t say you are too old for an Easter basket!! I am 24 and I got mine today :) No RC’s or accessories though – maybe next year!

I can’t help but think there has to be a way to have fun with your RC’s today because isn’t there always a way? Hmmm RC car…eggs…bunnies. You could change up your yearly Easter Egg hunt and put eggs in or taped to your RC cars – run your car and watch the kids (or your friends) go for the eggs! That’s all I got folks!

We hope you have a great day with family/friends doing whatever you may be doing!!

Let us know if you do anything fun with your RC’s on this holiday by posting below or in our RC Nightmare Forum!
