ZIP-UP HOODIE

Opinions about hoodies are like noses – we all have one. And one of my pet peeves is that it’s somewhat difficult to find logo wear hoodies that zip up! Again, Pro-Line comes to the rescue with a new (and zippy) hoodie! The hoodie has the Pro-Line stacked logo on the chest and a full logo on the left sleeve. Available from Pro-Line or your local hobby dealer. Part no. 9807-04, Price, $50.00

TrackStar has come up with a great drift oriented gyro for anyone desiring to improve their overall drift performance, including straight line performance. The D Spec gyro is easy to install – just plug between the steering servo and the receiver. There are two adjustments, the compensation, which sets the direction aspect and gain, which is the sensitivity of the unit. With a three channel transmitter the degree of compensation can be adjusted on the fly. Though tiny (21mm x 21mm x 11mm), the D Spec Gyro delivers big performance at a low price.
