Arrma Mojave 6S BLX 1/7 Scale Desert Truck

In the famous words of Ricky Bobby, “I wanna go fast.” So, when I saw that Arrma’s big new 1/7-scale Mojave 6S BLX is designed to go 60mph+, it got my attention right quick. 60mph! That’s highway speed. Oh, wait. Let’s stop right there. In TV lawyer voice: That statement in no way, shape or […]

Pro-Line Hyrax SCXL All Terrain Tires

Racing short course trucks is a lot of fun, but the fact is for every short course truck seeing action at a track there are dozens and dozens tearing up backyards. This means that most of the tires for short course trucks aren’t really ideal for how the majority of trucks get used. That is […]

ChuckworksRC CW-90 Sprint Conversion

Don’t get me wrong, I get all excited for the big releases from the mainstream manufacturers in RC, but I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the little guys–the underdogs of RC. I love these alternative companies for the same reason many of us like alternative music–it’s different, refreshing, not the […]

RPM Traxxas Gearbox Housing Review

Magnum 272 undeniably sounds tough. And, while this Traxxas transmission design has certainly proven to be durable and has also received some substantial upgrades over the years (metal gears, bearings, slipper pads), it is still not without some flaws.

DE Racing Setup System Kit

DE Racing Setup System Kit

Most people setup camber and toe by placing their vehicle on the bench and checking settings with a gauge. Guess what? Even though that’s the way it’s most often done and I’ve done it that way many times myself, it’s the wrong way. The sidewall of the tires introduces way too much of a margin […]

DE Racing Short Course Oval Tires

DE Racing Short Course Oval Tires

Short course trucks like the Traxxas Slash are getting used for a lot more than club racing and backyard bashing, these days. It reminds me of the golden era of RC when we were converting Tamiya Hornets into stock hot rods, Associated RC10s into sprint cars and making other sometimes wacky creations. It seems like […]
