Horizon Hobby Losi ECX Vaterra K&N R/C Car Family

Horizon Hobby, a giant in the radio control industry, and K&N Air Filters, a leader in air filtration technology, have partnered to create a trio of K&N branded r/c cars

Horizon Hobby Losi 1/5 K&N DBXL 4WD Buggy RTR With K&N Air Filter

At nearly 31-inches long, and over 19-inches wide the 1/5 K&N DBXL 4WD Buggy RTR is powered by a 23cc 2-cycle engine protected by a genuine K&N high-flow air filter

Since 1969 the K&N logo has been associated with performance and over time K&N has become recognized as a worldwide leader in air filtration technology. With thousands of filters in a seemingly limitless configuration of shapes and sizes, it really is safe to say that K&N makes an air filter for just about anything with an engine. From the biggest of diesel engines to the smallest outdoor power equipment, an internal combustion engine needs protection from ingesting harmful debris.

For a while now K&N has received testimonials of K&N users equipping their gasoline powered radio control vehicles with tiny K&N air filters. It may seem odd to some, but the superior airflow and superior performance of K&N air filters can help improve the efficiency of even the smallest engines. So when the folks from Horizon Hobby’s Losi brand of R/C vehicles needed a performance air filter for one of its large 1/5 scale cars, K&N was a natural selection.

Horizon Hobby Vaterra brand 1/10-scale 2015 K&N Ford Mustang GT V100 Drift RTR

With special tires and a paint scheme to match the K&N built Ford Racing Mustang RTR race car, the Vaterra 1/10 2015 K&N Ford Mustang GT is built to experience drifting on a smaller scale

The Losi 1/5-scale K&N edition Desert Buggy XL (DBXL) 4WD Buggy is a massive complete ready to run (RTR) R/C Car being offered through Horizon Hobby and its authorized dealers. At nearly 31-inches long, and over 19-inches wide the 1/5 K&N DBXL 4WD Buggy RTR is powered by a 23cc 2-cycle engine. Besides being protected by a genuine K&N air filter, this Losi R/C buggy includes an officially licensed K&N decorated body. Owners of the standard Losi 1/5 Desert Buggy XL 4WD Buggy RTR need not worry as the K&N air filter and K&N body can be purchased as accessory items.

Horizon Hobby ECX 1/10 K&N Torment 2WD SCT RTR

The ECX brand 1/10-scale K&N Torment 2WD short course truck RTR features a replica body of the K&N Pro Lite Truck driven by K&N sponsored LOORRS driver Bradley Morris

If a 1/5-scale two-stroke powered R/C buggy isn’t your thing, Horizon Hobby and K&N have also partnered to create the ECX brand 1/10-scale K&N Torment 2WD short course truck in a ready to run package. Horizon Hobby’s ECX brand Torment SCT R/C truck is built to withstand even the most brutal of drivers and comes fully Ready-To-Run. ECX vehicles are designed to deliver hard-hitting action, without destroying your wallet. The 1/10 K&N Torment 2WD SCT RTR features a replica body of the K&N Pro Lite Truck driven by Bradley Morris in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series.

If you’re more of a road racing or drift fan, K&N and Horizon Hobby have just the ticket with the Vaterra brand 1/10-scale 2015 K&N Ford Mustang GT V100 Drift RTR. The Vaterra 1/10 2015 K&N Ford Mustang GT is built around the versatile, AWD, neutral handling V100-S chassis. With specially molded drift tires mounted on licensed 54mm replica Volk CE28N wheels and a paint scheme designed to match the K&N built Ford Racing Mustang RTR race car, this car is made to experience the rush of drift racing at a smaller scale. An optional set of tires uses a different rubber compound to promote grip over drift if you prefer to hug the turns rather than slide through them.

All three of these K&N Filters branded R/C vehicles can be purchased through the Horizon Hobby website. K&N apologizes to fans who want to enjoy licensed K&N R/C action in the air or on the water. But hey, who knows what the future will bring?
