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…

Integy 8 Spoke AQ Style 1.9 Alloy Beadlock Wheels & All Terrain Tires Type IV Review

When it comes to wheels and tires for any RC, the choices you have are almost endless. Even when you break it down to the size by category that came stock with any RC vehicle, you can still find yourself overwhelmed. I’ve always believed that no matter how good or bad a RC body looks,…

RC4WD Cutter Scale Driver Figure Review

Scale details are like tattoos and Pringles–odds are one ain’t going to cut it. And, one of the most must-have scale accessories is a driver figure. Makes sense because an empty driver’s seat in a moving vehicle isn’t exactly realistic. Well, just get a driver, right? Not so fast. Most scale drivers are sourced from the…

Pro-Line Racing 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Body Review

The Chevrolet Silverado is a popular full-size pickup truck manufactured by General Motors. It was introduced in 1998 as the successor to the Chevrolet C/K line. In the RC hobby, where a lot of people like to build miniature versions of what they own as a full-size truck, or wish they owned, we have had…

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…

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. They are great axles, picked usually because they’re wide, but axles tend to get lost in the project. This also happens in the full-size world and is…

Pit Bull Growler AT/Extra 1.55 Tire Review

What you’re looking at are Pit Bull Tires’ 1.55 Growlers. That’s right, folks, 1.55 Pits! If you love the 1.9s and the 2.2s, well, add these to the list. With the Growler AT/Extra, Pit Bull has added another soft compound, sticky tire to its lineup of tires based directly on the full-size tires they make.  …

STRC Off-Axle Servo Mount Kit and Panhard for Axial Wraith Review

There’s all sorts of crazy creativeness going on scalers. I love it. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, someone drops something new and cool on their rig. Even with all of the proverbial out-of-the-box thinking, one of the fundamental go-to scale modifications we keep seeing–for good reason–on numerous built-up scalers is a CMS,…

  If you look around the web, you’ll find tons of Axial SCX10 rigs around. Also, you’ll find a lot of them modified–mine included. I didn’t leave it stock for long. In November of 2013, I started the STRC SCX10 upgrade build. I was happy with both the looks and performance of the first batch of…

Pro-Line Interco TSL SX Super Swamper XL 1.9 Review

Successful products fill a distinct need. Take, for example, the McDonald’s McRib. Okay, that’s a bad example, but it was the first thing that popped in my head. A better example is Pro-Line’s Interco TSL SX Super Swamper XL 1.9, which rather obviously satisfy the need for a taller 1.9 tire. The XLs fill the…

Locked Up RC 2.2″ Rock Cutter SLW Compatible Beadlock Wheel Review

RC aluminum wheels have been around for a long time. These good-looking-but-heavy wheels were first installed solely as a cosmetic upgrade. Well, back in the ‘80s and ‘90s, I’m sure plenty thought there was a performance advantage, but the reality is the racer that put aluminum wheels of his Tamiya Frog was not improving handling or…
