Custom 1/8-Scale ’41 Willys [READER’S RIDE]

Custom 1/8-Scale ’41 Willys [READER’S RIDE]

Henry Martinez is a hardcore Chevy guy going back decades — he currently owns a ’57 Nomad and a ’68 El Camino SS396 that he’s done full frame-off restorations on. He says he can’t do as much building and restoring of the full-scale stuff as he’d like anymore, so he’s focused his talents on building […]
Axial SCX10 II    [READER’S RIDE]

Axial SCX10 II [READER’S RIDE]

Anthony Newman is obviously an Axial fan, as you can see from the pair of Jeeps he sent in. He runs his ‘00 Cherokee-bodied SCX10 on 3S Lipo, powering a 55-turn motor and an Axial AE5 controller with a 6V Castle BEC. He dressed up the exterior with a set of Integy fog lights and Axial’s […]

Vaterra Twin Hammers Trail Truck  [READER’S RIDE]

Vaterra Twin Hammers Trail Truck [READER’S RIDE]

The Vaterra is nominally a desert truck, but Jason Hope’s Twin Hammers spends plenty of time getting muddy on mountain trails near his Pacifica, Callifornia home. The muck looks at home on the Pro-Line ’72 Chevy C10 body done in a rusty beater truck motif by Jason himself. He selected upsized Interco Super Swampers from […]
Axial SCX10 with RC4WD Hardbody [READER’S RIDE]

Axial SCX10 with RC4WD Hardbody [READER’S RIDE]

Here’s a beautiful truck in a beautiful setting sent in by Cameron McLean. The chassis is an Axial SCX10-2, dressed up with a 4-door Mojave Hard Body from RC4WD with Customs stripes by Ernesto at URScale banners. Pro-Line supplied the front bumper and 2-inch Light Bar. Pro-Line also delivered the Swamper TSL SX Tires and […]

Custom Chevy K5 Blazer Drag Truck [READER’S RIDE]

Custom Chevy K5 Blazer Drag Truck [READER’S RIDE]

With all the great scale truck hard bodies now on the market, it’s easy to see why Dan Boyle chose one for his latest scale build. But rather than go the traditional truck route, he combined his love of drag racers with RC4WD’s excellent injection-molded K5 Blazer. It sits on a heavily modified Axial Wraith […]
Axial Wraith Trail Frog [READER’S RIDE]

Axial Wraith Trail Frog [READER’S RIDE]

Mark Liersch’s list of upgrades reads like a wish-list for anyone into trail and scale. He beefed up the driveline with Rave G5 machined axles and a RC4WD 2-speed transmission. Big-time torque comes courtesy of RC4WD too in the form of a 45-turn motor controlled through an Axial AE5 speed controller on 2S Lipos. A […]

Tamiya Clod Buster Time Machine [READER’S RIDE]

Tamiya Clod Buster Time Machine [READER’S RIDE]

We’ve been on a retro kick lately, and Mike Lohmann’s Clod Buster shows exactly why these old-school rides can be so cool! Mike tells us this is a seriously old-school Clod Buster is one of several that he has done as he relives his youth by collecting all the parts he couldn’t afford back then. He […]
King of the Gassers 1948 Willys [READER’S RIDE]

King of the Gassers 1948 Willys [READER’S RIDE]

2016 Reader’s Ride of the Year winner Dan Boyle sent in his take on the king of the gassers the 1948 Willys. Dan built it on an Axial Wraith frame, and powered the Willys with a Traxxas brushless system. He even incorporated Traxxas’ onboard audio system. He installed a set of rare See’s aluminum wheels. […]

Axial Rubicon Unlimited [READER’S RIDE]

Axial Rubicon Unlimited [READER’S RIDE]

Todd Henderson’s SCX10 started off as a trade he received, that already had SSD D60 axles, a JR brick battery plate, a Holmes Hobbies TorqueMaster controller, a Castle 10a BEC and a Hitec 7980th servo with an Axial aluminum servo horn. I added a Holmes Hobbies TorqueMaster Expert 40T motor to turn a Robinson Racing pinion, […]
Superman Nitro Unlimited Puller [READER’S RIDE]

Superman Nitro Unlimited Puller [READER’S RIDE]

Meet Superman. This unlimited class nitro puller is built by Zeek Heard of No Limit RC and (loosely!) based on HPI Savage parts. It sits on a 3/16-inch thick laser-cut aircraft aluminum chassis stretched to 48 inches long, and it weighs 33 pounds (40 with the dually tire setup, which also gives it a 32-inch […]

Custom Scale Little Red Wagon [READER’S RIDE]

Custom Scale Little Red Wagon [READER’S RIDE]

Scott Lempert, one of our scratch-build regulars, is back at it with another tribute to a drag-racing classic: The Little Red Wagon Dodge A100 — the legendary wheelie machine driven by Bill Golden from 1965 to 1975. Scott built the body out of styrene sheet after studying numerous period photos of the LRW. He also […]
Custom Mohave Crawler [READER’S RIDE]

Custom Mohave Crawler [READER’S RIDE]

Scott Oney tells us the idea with this project was to build up a Class 1 scale truck on a set of Losi Comp Crawler axles so that he wouldn’t need a speed control with a drag brake. He chose an Axial Dingo chassis, then had to figure out how to mount his RC4WD Mojave […]
