I hope you enjoy the Team Losi LOSB1481B 1.9 Mini Rock Basher Tire video review, because we had lots of fun making it.  I'm not sure if we'll ask Homer back for another product review. If we do, we'll make sure he eats something before getting in front of the camera! You will find the product link here: http://www.atomicmods.com/Products/Team-Losi-LOSB1481B-19-Mini-Rock-Basher-Tires__14861.aspx

The internet will be down this weekend on Saturday May 16, from 11:00PM CST until 7:00AM Sunday.  Well, maybe not the entire internet.  Actually just our site will be down.  I know what you're thinking...might as well be the whole internet.

As it turns out, our ISP is moving a fiber line due to some construction, so we'll be offline for a few hours.  Although the outage will have nothing to do with our server, site protocol says we should still have a picture to illustrate, so here it is:

Just posted a video review on the new Road Mice. These things are amazingly scale like, and work very well. Like most modern mice they have a laser, and are totally wireless. Unlike most modern mice, they look friggen sweet and have working headlights!

We now have a track in our shop to hone our skills, test products, and of course, shoot some mean videos.  At different points in our history, we've had access to several tracks including our own club track, but this marks the first time we've had a track in-house where we can drive on it anytime we darn well please.  It is a Mini-96 from RCP with the expansion kit.  Check it out!

Yes it is true, you can now follow us on Twitter! We will try to keep it real, although we are not convinced that we are actually all that interesting.

Here's a sneak peek of the new LS2.0 Chassis from Mayhem Engineering.  We should have these sets on the website in a matter of hours.  It fits the Axial AX10 and other platforms.  Like Mayhem's line of wheels, this new crawler chassis is HQ all the way!

5/4/2009 Update!  The Mayhem LS2.0 is now on the site!

The 10th Anniversary Mini-Z. Limited to 1000 units, this ARR chassis comes in a unique jet black finish and special red anodization on the ball diff and disc damper. These red-anodized parts are reserved only for this special edition MR02 and will not be available separately.  We have the largest allocation of these limited production chassis sets in the US. 

Be sure to check out the sweet video review Frank did on the product page...

Begin Message Broadcast Alpha 729-98774-6754G: It is the mission of AtomicMods, to assimilate all sentient beings into our collective recreational activities. You are to proceed immediately to http://www.atomicmods.com/ and secure Micro RC products for immediate implantation.

Mini-Z implants are small and quite painless, however for greater compliance, consider Axial SCX10 or Tamiya CR01 structure grafts. 3Racing Winches are also acceptable to the collective and useful for, well, winching. Mayhem Engineering 1.9 Seven Aluminum rotational discs are very pleasurable, and brushless neurological enhancements increase reaction times by 82.9%.

Comply now to avoid long lines at the surgical bays.

Well it’s official. I’m addicted to an R.C. shortcourse Truck.  A few months ago some of my so called friends purchased Traxxas Slash trucks, and after watching the off-road carnage ensue, one of them said “you wanna try it? It’s free..”    (The first one is always free right?)   BAM! I’m addicted.

A few days later I’m in the hobby shop coughing up a couple of Benjamins for a new addition to an already overflowing hobby room.   On the way home it hits me that I’m going to have to explain this new addition to the wife at some point.  Luckily, her reaction was, “That thing is sweet!”    Cool, I’m not divorced!

All kidding aside, the Slash is a fun and tough piece of equipment.  Unfortunately it’s not in our lineup since are into smaller scale stuff, but its little brother will be!  We will be carrying the 1:16 scale Slash and eRevo from Traxxas pretty soon. The new 1:16 Slash will be a little different from its big brother (brushless and 4x4) so watch out!  I’ve already got the shakes just thinking about it. Maybe I need some rehab?

With the new shop we put in new smokin fast PCs for everyone along with dual widescreen monitors suspended on swanky monitor arms. The arms are kind of scary in that they look an awful lot like terminator arms, but they free up valuable counter space and only occasionally attack the users. This will allow us to be more effective at getting your orders out and answering your questions faster. One more reason why we are the best Micro RC store on the web. At least that is what we told Rob.

Rob had a spot of trouble installing the new dual monitor arms, but managed to get it done sustaining only minor injuries.
