Scale crawlers — growing or not?

A while back rock crawlers blew up and it seemed like comp type crawlers kept popping up like crazy. Every now and then a scale rig would show up but now it seems like scale crawlers are taking over. I’m very excited about more scale rigs being built. One of the first trucks that drew […]

Trans-Am trio

Trans-Am trio

A few years ago, a couple of friends and I decided that we wanted some old school Trans-Am cars to race.  We dug out our old Associated TC3 electric sedans, browsed some hobby catalogs, and immediately began negotiating to make sure we each got the car we wanted.  After much discussion and bribing one another […]

Hot In Canada

From day to day I often run into fellow colleges and friends. We talk about the weather and about work. But, after a few minutes the conversation usually turns to my hobby. I have talked to several people in the past few months about getting into it. One of the most common questions I get […]

Product “Testing” Gives Us An Excuse…

Product “Testing” Gives Us An Excuse…

I’ve always believed that “real world” product tests involve using the product in question as much as possible, and then reporting the results.  Product destruction isn’t at the top of my list.

Has drifting missed the mark?

Has drifting missed the mark?

I have been drifting casually for a few years now, but I never really gave it much thought as anything other than parking lot bashing.  Indeed, a lot of RCers tend to think of drifting as a fad that has come and gone – a novelty that wore off in 2009, never to be fully […]
We need more solid axle monster trucks!

We need more solid axle monster trucks!

I am a fan of solid axle monster trucks and will always be. I’m bummed about the lack of choices out there when it comes to that category. Kyosho has the Mad Force line, Tamiya has the Super Clod and TXT-1 and HPI Has the wheelie king. They are all cool trucks but I still […]
