Biggest in RC: Quarter-Scale Oval Action

If there’s one segment of RC that’s still reserved for the hardest of hardcore, it’s quarter-scale racing. Just about big enough to ride on, built just like full-size race cars, and definitely not RTR (or cheap), these massive machines are the ultimate RC cars. Watch them go left in Stock Car, East Coast Modified, and [...]

He decided to combine the two into the ground-up build you see before you, which Scott has dubbed the BackSlush!

Traxxas Steals the Show In Leatherman Video

This is ostensibly an ad for the Leatherman Leap, “your kid’s first multi-tool,” but with wall to wall Slash and Rustler action, it plays like a Traxxas ad.

Pro-Line Now Has a Stadium Truck (sort of)

Pro-Line’s PRO-2 SC short course truck, PRO-2 Buggy and PRO-MT monster truck aren’t being officially joined by a stadium truck (that we assume would be called the PRO-ST), but this build from Pro-Line’s Holeshot blog sure looks factory. It’s based on a modded PRO-MT, and the conversion is easy. There’s no telling if this could [...]
