HPI Baja 5SC body makeover

HPI Baja 5SC body makeover

I’m currently building a project Baja 5SC for an upcoming issue of Radio Control Car Action. The base for this project is my well used HPI Baja 5SC. Since a replacement body wasn’t available I decided to use the stock body and thanks to TGN Distributing I can give it a new look by adding […]
100MPH Traxxas XO-1. WOW!

100MPH Traxxas XO-1. WOW!

Can you believe that we are seeing a car that can easily reach 100MPH and uh…you can actually go to the local hobby shop and buy it. Unreal! This makes me think. I wonder if we are going to see another company release a similar product and more importantly what is Traxxas going to do […]

Traxxas water proof receiver box……great for all vehicles.

If you’re a basher or into scale rock crawling, chances are that you have run through the mud and water from time to time. The receiver in a lot of vehicles is exposed and can be damaged by those conditions. Traxxas includes a waterproof receiver box with its Slash trucks and it’s held in place […]
Painting tip

Painting tip

I have been painting a lot lately and have recently started to detail a Tamiya Blackfoot III body. While doing this I was reminded of a tip that you guys can use and one that I don’t always follow. Any time you get a new roll of tape be careful of where you place the […]
What happened to monster trucks?

What happened to monster trucks?

Monster trucks used to be very popular and we saw a lot of them from our readers and RC companies. They have since died down. Or have they? What happened to them? You can never go wrong with a big over powered monster truck that can go anywhere. Now that we have such powerful LiPo […]
What do you like about racing?

What do you like about racing?

I am more of a racer than a basher. For me I like going to the track and trying to run the perfect line and trying to make lap after lap as consistent as I can. I work on my cars so that they perform as good as possible but it’s not because I want […]
