The Hobby Hangout

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

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. On the truck side of scale, people are making more […]

Pro-Line Racing Brawler Clod Buster Wheels

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 […]

DROMIDA MT4.18 RTR Long-Term Test

If you ask most people who have 1/10-scale or larger RC vehicles how they feel about mini 1/18-scale vehicles and they might be wondering what’s the point? I admit that I was one of those individuals–until recently. I’ve never really been a fan of driving anything smaller than 1/10 scale, but once I got my hands on the […]

Tamiya Monster Beetle Re-release

Tamiya Monster Beetle Re-release

  This is going to thrill the old school crowd. The Monster Beetle was a huge hit for Tamiya in the golden age of RC during the 1980’s. It was part of the Frog and Blackfoot family, and like many of Tamiya’s models from that time period, the Monster Beetle was practically a household name. […]

Pro-line Racing Destroyer 2.6″ Monster Truck Tire Review

Pro-line Racing Destroyer 2.6″ Monster Truck Tire Review

When it comes to performance, nothing is as critical as tires. We tend to harp on this subject because it’s true and too important to risk being under appreciated. Take, for example, the 2015 No Limit R/C World Finals. Lack of traction. That was how the track was being described. Event goers weren’t talking to […]
