Don’t try this at home. Don’t try this at home. Also, don’t try this at home. With that out of the way, here are in-car and third-person views of a 1/5 scale buggy navigating traffic, which you should definitely not try at home.
It’s not the bunny trail, but our friends at Axial are definitely doing some hoppin’ over the Easter weekend. The gang is in Moab, UT for the 49th annual Easter Jeep Safari, “America’s largest and best-known event promoting recreational four wheeling.” Our man Rodney at Axial texted a few pics, and as Liz Lemon would [...]
It’s April Fool’s day, also known as “trust nothing day.” While you stay alert on prank-patrol, you can also expect to see wacky-RC-product shenanigans today. We’ll collect them here, and we already have two lined up… Pro-Line is way out in front for the “best fake product” award with the Prime TrackShoe. It looks real, [...]
Remember Revell’s old “Visible V8” model kit? This is even better. Fully 3D-printed and motorized for full crank-turning, piston-pumping, valve-lifting action, the lift-apart engine makes it easy to see the workings without turning a wrench. Builder Eric Harrell didn’t stop at the classic Toyota 22RE engine—he built a functional transmission to go with it! See [...]
All this completely custom Jeep needs is servos; otherwise, it’s only “RC” if you’re the guy driving it and your name begins with “R.” But as a motorized model it’s still highly attention-worthy, and with 99cc OHV 4-stroke power, it’s got plenty of people-carrying power. This baby Jeep is quick with 100+pounds of person on [...]
Originally featured in our June 2008 issue, the beautiful bike build by Nolan Farmer remains the most factory-looking two-wheeled custom we’ve ever seen. It’s just as realistic with the bodywork off as it is on, from the fuel tank and perimeter frame to the inverted forks and carbon fiber exhaust. And bonus points for thumper [...]
When we saw this tractor-lookin’ rig in the first video below, we thought it was someone’s wacky homebuilt, but it turns out the “Yeti” is actually built specifically for knifing through super-deep snow (see the second video, which turns into a plazma-cutter commercial). Who’s up for building an RC version? Just need to fab up [...]
As you Traxxas Rustler 2WD and Stampede 2WD owners already know, the popular RTRs have different front and rear wheel offsets. The rear arms reach deep into the wheels, but the front arms are shorter and use wheels with greater offset to make up the difference. RPM’s new arms match the width of the rears, [...]
