Hat tip to Jalopnik for turning us on to this awesome Lego Ferrari 248 F1 car. It’s a custom job by prolific builder “Sariel,” not an off the shelf kit, which makes it even more impressive. Better yet, it’s radio control! In addition to the usual throttle and steering capabilities, the car features a shift-on-the-fly transmission, articulated [...]
Basher’s heading into new territory with the M.Rage, the brand’s first on-road effort. Surprisingly, the car isn’t standard sedan-size, as in 190mm wide with a 255(ish)mm wheelbase. Instead, the M.Rage is scaled like Tamiya’s “M-chassis” cars, with a 210mm wheelbase at 165mm wide. Actual scale size depends what body is on the car. It’s technically [...]
What would you do if you got your hands on a fully operational 1/4 scale Conley V8 engine? Most would mount it on a nice piece of stained wood and put it on their desk, and a few of those people would actually fire it up from time to time to show it off to [...]
Now here’s something you don’t see every day. This guy made the world’s smallest nitro powered RC car (he claims–ever seen one smaller?) and it sounds pretty mean. Bonus points for the old “upside down bicycle as starter box” trick. Check out the video.
The first-person-view (FPV) scene is exploding, but most of the clips are landscapes and sky-high shots–yawn. We like this clip a lot more, as “josh fpv” gets right down into the action on an RC track.
PROTOform’s new Caddy is a great representation of the full-size car and comes molded out of .030 Lexan. This hot body is designed to fit a 190mm touring car chassis and it’s a sweet looking piece. Beyond scale appearance, the body is also designed to provide maximum performance and includes tuning options for various types [...]
Remember the Tamiya TA-02 chassis? It was ground zero for the touring car mania that swept RC in the late nineties and early 2000s, and without it the sedan scene wouldn’t exist. Now it’s back in “SW” (Short Wheelbase) trim, specifically to fit Porsche 911GT2 bodywork with the correct scale proportions. The limited-edition release is [...]
Novak has updated the M2 Dig speed control with a fourth throttle profile that let’s you independently control a brushed motor and a motorized accessory. “Use one side to run the vehicle motor, and the 2nd side to operate the vehicles’ winch or other accessory device. No more pre-mixed operation or ‘dig’ settings needed in [...]
