Vintage Tamiya Blackfoot Returns for 2016 Re-release

Vintage Tamiya Blackfoot Returns for 2016 Re-release

The Blackfoot is an ionic nameplate in Tamiya history. Right up there with the Bruiser and others like the Midnight Pumpkin and Lunchbox. They all come from the same generation. This was the start for many kids and adults in the 80’s. Owning one of these in a collection today meant you were able to […]

Pro-Line Racing Brawler Clod Buster Style Wheels Review

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 […]

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. To make matters worse, the mainstay–the Tamiya Clod Buster–is getting, well, […]

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 […]

STRC Axial Wraith Monster Truck Izilla Chassis Conversion

STRC has clearly been watching the scale monster truck scene explode and become bigger than it’s been in a long time. I’m not talking about the 80’s classics here; the new breed of monster trucks that are being built today are a mixed bunch of custom builds, and one of the top brands people are […]

DROMIDA MT4.18 RTR Long-Term Test

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 […]

RC4WD Twisted Monster Truck Spiked Tire

RC4WD Twisted Monster Truck Spiked Tire

Solid axle monster truck racing is enjoying a bit of a revival, but even with the increase in attention, monster trucks still don’t get anywhere near the attention the big segments like short course and scalers get. Case in point, while the other segments have more tire choices than they know what to do with, […]
