RC4WD Digger Scale Monster Truck Axle

RC4WD Digger Scale Monster Truck Axle

This release from RC4WD instantly got our gears turning and we bet we’re not alone. The Digger Scale Monster Truck Axle is perfect for building a scale monster truck. And while we haven’t seen them in action, but based on what we can see, we’re willing to also bet these axles will work as good […]

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, […]

Pro-Line Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon MT Body

Pro-Line Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon MT Body

Pro-Line knows Jeep fans aren’t just into going slow over rocks. They can get their kicks out of going big and going fast just like the rest of us, so it makes sense that Pro-Line has a new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon body for monster trucks. Pro-Line lists that the Jeep fits the HPI Savage and […]

LaTrax Teton 1/18 by Traxxas

LaTrax Teton 1/18 by Traxxas

If you haven’t heard, LaTrax is an offshoot of Traxxas and is designed to provide affordable, easy access to hobby-grade RC. The first release was a 1/18-rally car that RC Truck Stop broke the story on. It was clear that if you were already in the hobby, the LaTrax Rally wasn’t for you–and it wasn’t intended to […]

Tamiya Toyota Land Cruiser 40 P/Up GF-01

Tamiya Toyota Land Cruiser 40 P/Up GF-01

Tamiya, with its wide array of offerings, doesn’t always release something completely new. Tamiya fans know this. But they also know when the big T does come out with an all new vehicle, it’s often pretty good. Case in point, Tamiya has a new offbeat addition to its fleet of RC vehicles, the GF-01 chassis with Toyota Land Cruiser 40–pick-up […]

Pro-Line 1966 Ford F-100 Traxxas Stampede Body

Pro-Line 1966 Ford F-100 Traxxas Stampede Body

It may not be very unbiased of us, but we love this body. We loved the short course version and we’re digging having a classic Ford shell for the Traxxas Stampede and Stampede 4X4. The body comes clear and includes decals, overspray film and window masks.   Learn more here.

Traxxas Stampede 4X4 Brushed

Traxxas Stampede 4X4 Brushed

Usually RC companies come out the souped-up, high-zoot version as a follow up to the tamer first edition. That’s not the case with the Traxxas Stampede 4X4. First out of the gate was the VXL version that is powered by Traxxas’ Velineon 3500 Kv brushless. Now, Traxxas has somewhat unexpectedly followed the brushless truck with […]

Vaterra Halix 4WD Monster Truck

Vaterra Halix 4WD Monster Truck

Vaterra hasn’t been around for all that long. The Horizon Hobby offshoot brand, meant to create a synergy between RC and full-size for enthusiasts, made a big splash by announcing a pretty well rounded fleet of on- and off-road vehicles all at once. The Twin Hammers arguably stole the show, but there have been some […]

Crawford Performance Engineering Barbarian Chassis

Crawford Performance Engineering Barbarian Chassis

Solid axle monster truck fans are well aware of Crawford Performance Engineering (known as CPE or just Crawford). These guys have been dedicated to the segment or niche for the long haul. Their latest release is something we really dig. It’s called the Barbarian and it’s a chassis conversion for the Axial Wraith or Ridgecrest […]

Building a Clod Killer on a Budget

Building a Clod Killer on a Budget

  I am a huge fan of Tamiya and its legendary Clod Buster, and maybe you are too. The iconic monster truck is without a doubt a significant part of RC history and immensely popular. But, after a 25+ year run, I can’t help but feel that it’s time to give this old dog a […]

ECX Ruckus Brushless Monster Truck

ECX Ruckus Brushless Monster Truck

Horizon Hobby introduced the ECX lineup of vehicles (originally known as Electrix) to offer RC beginners hobby-grade products that were affordable and easy to use. In a short period of time, the lineup has evolved and is now, in our opinion, not just for the new guys. Case in point is the monster truck of […]

2013 No Limit RC World Finals Race Coverage

2013 No Limit RC World Finals Race Coverage

The No Limit RC World Finals is a truly unique RC event. It’s a racing competition–of which there are many in the hobby–but this one, now in its eighth year, focuses on oversized monster trucks with the addition of some short course truck action, sled pulling and even wild mud racing. It’s clearly not your […]

To help celebrate the occasion, Meents and his team are driving newly designed Max-D bodies loaded with menacing spikes. Knowing RC monster truck enthusiasts will be looking for a way to […]
