Truck of the Week: 1/22/2012 Tamiya Clod Buster

Charles Reed sends us his rig that we’ll call a Tamiya Clod Buster because it uses the axles from the classic monster truck. The frame is custom and the tires are RC4WD Mud Slingers on Tamiya TXT-1 rims. The eye-catching body is a International CXT hard plastic shell lifted from a toy-grade RC. Charles uses…

Truck of the Week: 1/8/2012 Axial Wraith

Tattoos and Pringles–they say once you get started, you can’t stop. If Bernie Horstkamp’s Axial Wraith is any indication, you can add¬†RC modifications to that list. Bernie is from Saratoga, CA, and he hasn’t left much stock on his Axial Wraith. He boosted speed with a Novak Timbuk2 speed control Wraith Edition that includes a…

Truck of the Week: 12/18/2011 Traxxas Rustler

Here’s a unique take on the rather common Traxxas Rustler. Nick Gillmoure gave his stadium truck a rather truggu-like stance. The body is a JConcepts Punisher cab-forward body designed to fit an Associated T4. Nick hopes to add a Castle Creation Sidewinder or SCT brushless system and Pro-Line 2.8 Badlands. He’d also like to get…

The body is a Pro-Line Jeep Rubicon,¬†features a trimmed front bumper and RPM light bar. Out back is a metal swing out spare…

Truck of the Week: 12/4/2011 HPI Wheely King

This truck made us instantly envious. It has been dubbed the “Digger King” and is the handiwork of Tim Kievit of Washington DC. Tim kept the stock chassis, painted it Grave Digger green and stretched the wheelbase by using a mix of HPI’s Crawler King links. The wheelbase now appropriately matches a Traxxas Stampede since…
