Axial Racing SMT10 Grave Digger Monster Jam Truck RTR

What?! Is it too early to say we love it? I mean we’re suckers for monster trucks and we’re suckers for scale, so this truck had us at hello. We’re willing to bet you are there too. The SMT stands for Scale Monster Truck and the 10 means 1/10 scale. We love it. We already […]

Axial SCX10 II Kit

The SCX10 has enjoyed a long run as the most popular scaler. And, for most of its life, it has been only child in the scaler world. When someone bought a scaler, they bought a SCX10. Eventually, competition (both internal and external) came to be, but overall it’s fairly safe to guess Axial has sold as […]

Vintage Tamiya Blackfoot Returns for 2016 Re-release

Pro-Line Racing Brawler Clod Buster Style Wheels Review

As a kid, I loved monster trucks. What little boy didn’t? When it came to the RC hobby and the desire to relive the monster truck experience at home, the only option around was the Tamiya Clod Buster. Other trucks followed soon after like the Tamiya Bull Head, Kyosho USA-1, Tamiya Juggernaut and TXT-1, but slowly […]

The Hobby Hangout

While I’m lucky to have a backyard that’s ideal for rock crawling and, in the past, I have lived in towns with either RC clubs or hobby shops, for the most part, I currently travel to do RC–especially competitive RC. Sometimes I travel pretty far. For local racing, I’ll go 45 minutes to Waterbury, CT for […]

    STRC Axial Wraith Monster Truck Izilla Chassis Review

    If you like monster trucks there are plenty of choices in RC, but if you’re a true fan of the real car crushers and want realism in your RC, which means ditching independent suspension for solid axles, your options are a lot more limited.

    STRC CNC Machined Aluminum Lift Kit for Axial SCX10 – Review

    You may have noticed that the scale segment is getting bigger and bigger. It just continues to grow. And, you may have also noticed that scale has transcended from rock crawlers and trail trucks to other segments. We’ve seen crazily detailed RC vehicles of all sorts.

    Pro-Line Racing Brawler Clod Buster Wheels

    You’ve heard of the economics theory of supply and demand. It’s easy to see how it works, but sometimes there are baffling instances of no supply despite a clear demand. Such is the case with Clod Buster wheel choices. Over the years, there just haven’t been that many affordable wheel choices for Clod or solid […]
