Vaterra 1986 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Ascender Scale Truck

As soon as Horizon Hobby launched the all-new Vaterra brand (only about a year and a half ago) and the rock crawling community got a look at its Twin Hammers release, there has been a clamor for a traditional scale truck. As overall well received as the Twin Hammers has been, “Yeah, that’s cool, but […]

Vaterra Twin Hammers Kit Version

You read that right; it’s a kit. Originally, we reported this as a GenRight edition. That isn’t 100% accurate. The kit (the original Twin Hammers was only available as a RTR) includes clear body pieces. But, it also includes GenRight decals, so you can create your own GenRight edition, if you like. About GenRight, if […]

Axial Yeti RTR Rock Racer

This is a big deal. It’s not a whole new invention, but it’s still a major release. The Yeti is what a few people have been fabricating on their own and what a whole lot more people have wanted. The Yeti is Axial’s production version of what most refer to as the “Wrexo”—as in Wraith […]

RC4WD Aluminum Tube Front Fender with Body Panel for Axial Jeep Rubicon

Tube fenders are a hot mod on full-size Jeeps and now, thanks to the creative folks at RC4WD, you can add metal tube fenders just like the full-size versions to your Axial Jeep Rubicon. As you probably already know, the stock Axial tube fenders are molded plastic. RC4WD’s are made out of CNC-machined aluminum and […]

Axial Racing SCX10 Jeep Wrangler Falken G6 Edition RTR

Late last year Axial unveiled the G6 Edition of the SCX10. The 2-door Jeep Wrangler has a cool look and tie in with the R.E.C.O.N. G6 series. That version was a kit and now Axial has a RTR, but they gave it the Falken tire treatment and a flashy paint scheme to go with it. […]

2014 Traxxas Mid-West TORC R/C Race Series

Traxxas “spec” racing is some of the best off-road racing available. The racing is exciting, the competition is close and the trucks are affordable, and if your live in the midwest, a race series may be coming to a full-size short course track near you. Traxxas has announced the Mid-West TORC R/C Race Series, which […]

    SCX10 TR Links Set -for 12″ (305 mm) Wheelbase

    Axial uses predominantly plastic links on its RTR rock crawlers because doing so reduces costs and for increased durability via flexibility. Aluminum links offer more precise operation (no flex in the steering, for example) and are stronger in the long run. Axial’s SCX10 aluminum link set is compatible with the RTR SCX10 Deadbolt and Jeep […]

    2014 Axialfest Preregistration Closing May 26

    Having been to one, I’m a huge fan of Axialfest, which should be on everyone’s RC bucket list. This year’s event is coming up quickly. Preregistration is closing soon! You must pre-reg by May 26! Again, May 26 is the last day to register. What you get when you preregister: Name printed on Event Pass or […]

  • STRC CNC Machined Aluminum Diff Covers Version 2 for Axial AR60 Axles Review

    STRC CNC Machined Aluminum Diff Covers Version 2 for Axial AR60 Axles Review

    Axial’s AR60 axles are becoming increasingly popular as they are found as factory equipment on Axial’s Wraith and AX10 Deadbolt models and also hundreds of custom rigs out there. They are great axles, picked usually because they’re wide, but axles tend to get lost in the project. This also happens in the full-size world and is […]

  • RC4WD Interco Super Swamper 1.7 TSL/Bogger “Siped” Scale Tire

    RC4WD Interco Super Swamper 1.7 TSL/Bogger “Siped” Scale Tire

    RC4WD keeps rolling out the new tires. This release should raise an eyebrow. First, the Interco Super Swamper 1.7 TSL/Bogger “Siped” Scale Tires are, as the name states, made for 1.7 wheels. Second, they have a modified tread. You see, the Bogger was designed, right from the get go, to be easily modified for high performance […]

  • Axial SCX10 Deadbolt RTR

    Axial SCX10 Deadbolt RTR

    This one is kind of a no brainer in our book. The Deadbolt body was an instant hit on the AX10, so we’re not too surprised to see that it has taken a leap from the AX10 chassis and landed on the SCX10 chassis. The body is now green, which we find quite fitting because green is […]

    Pit Bull Growler AT/Extra 1.55 Tire Review

    What you’re looking at are Pit Bull Tires’ 1.55 Growlers. That’s right, folks, 1.55 Pits! If you love the 1.9s and the 2.2s, well, add these to the list. With the Growler AT/Extra, Pit Bull has added another soft compound, sticky tire to its lineup of tires based directly on the full-size tires they make.   […]
