For so many years we thought of LRP as an electronics company. And we should have, since the company name for a long time was LRP electronic. For years LRP has been at the front of the pack with championship-winning electronic speed controls and motors. But for quite some time they have been expanding their product line. You may also think of them for their high end chargers and competition grade battery packs, but now you’ll know them for their vehicle offerings as well. The LRP vehicle line has just hit the United States and there is a wide variety of vehicles to choose from like a 2WD buggy, short course truck, stadium truck and 1/8-scale vehicle offerings like the S8 Rebel Bxe which we snagged. We’ve been using LRP products with great success for many years now and we can’t wait to tear into the S8 Rebel Bxe. Editor Tony Phalen took a look at the new 1/8 4WD Electric Off-Road Ready To Run buggy and rattled off some of its great features, including LRP’s competition ready iX8 Electronic Speed Control and 2200kV Dynamic-8 motor as standard equipment in a RC Driver video reveal! Check out the full details on this new release and follow RC Driver Magazine for its full review.
