Want to double your RC scale fun? Of course you do. Get some lights and keep running when the sun goes down. Not only do lights allow you do run at night, which is a whole lot of fun, but let’s be honest, they look cool. There are lots of vehicle LED lighting options out […]

In Search of . . . Yeti XL? What Does #YetiXL mean?

In Search of . . . Yeti XL? What Does #YetiXL mean?

Forget the Sasquatch, Bigfoot and the Yeti, now the search is for #YetiXL! Axial Racing put out this cryptic message of #YetiXL with a few photos. So, what do you think it is? “XL” is pretty standard abbreviation for extra large, so one obvious possibility is an oversized or large-scale Yeti. Could Axial have developed […]

Axial Ram Power Wagon SCX10

Axial Ram Power Wagon SCX10

It appears Axial is listening to its customers (and the scale rock crawling community as a whole) and will be dishing out, what we’re guessing, will an SCX10 based on a full-size pick-up, the Ram Power Wagon. It also appears you be able to modify the body by removing the bed and replacing it with […]

Vaterra 1986 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Ascender Scale Truck

Vaterra 1986 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Ascender Scale Truck

As soon as Horizon Hobby launched the all-new Vaterra brand (only about a year and a half ago) and the rock crawling community got a look at its Twin Hammers release, there has been a clamor for a traditional scale truck. As overall well received as the Twin Hammers has been, “Yeah, that’s cool, but […]

STRC Carbon-Steel Universal Center Driveshaft Kit for Axial Wraith Review

If you have upgraded the motor in your Axial Wraith you may have come across the “pretzel effect.” You know; it’s what your stock drive shafts look like after too much power and tough terrain come together. It’s not a pretty sight. If this has happened to you, it’s time to upgrade those driveshafts to […]

Vaterra Twin Hammers Kit Version

Vaterra Twin Hammers Kit Version

You read that right; it’s a kit. Originally, we reported this as a GenRight edition. That isn’t 100% accurate. The kit (the original Twin Hammers was only available as a RTR) includes clear body pieces. But, it also includes GenRight decals, so you can create your own GenRight edition, if you like. About GenRight, if […]

SCX10 TR Links Set -for 12″ (305 mm) Wheelbase

SCX10 TR Links Set -for 12″ (305 mm) Wheelbase

Axial uses predominantly plastic links on its RTR rock crawlers because doing so reduces costs and for increased durability via flexibility. Aluminum links offer more precise operation (no flex in the steering, for example) and are stronger in the long run. Axial’s SCX10 aluminum link set is compatible with the RTR SCX10 Deadbolt and Jeep […]

Axial Racing SCX10 Jeep Wrangler Falken G6 Edition RTR

Late last year Axial unveiled the G6 Edition of the SCX10. The 2-door Jeep Wrangler has a cool look and tie in with the R.E.C.O.N. G6 series. That version was a kit and now Axial has a RTR, but they gave it the Falken tire treatment and a flashy paint scheme to go with it. […]

STRC CNC Machined Aluminum Diff Covers Version 2 for Axial AR60 Axles Review

Axial’s AR60 axles are becoming increasingly popular as they are found as factory equipment on Axial’s Wraith and AX10 Deadbolt models and also hundreds of custom rigs out there.

RC4WD Interco Super Swamper 1.7 TSL/Bogger “Siped” Scale Tire

RC4WD keeps rolling out the new tires. This release should raise an eyebrow. First, the Interco Super Swamper 1.7 TSL/Bogger “Siped” Scale Tires are, as the name states, made for 1.7 wheels. Second, they have a modified tread. You see, the Bogger was designed, right from the get go, to be easily modified for high performance […]
