Axial SCX10 G6 by Kyle St. Peter [READER’S RIDE]

Axial SCX10 G6 by Kyle St. Peter [READER’S RIDE]

Kyle St. Peter started off by telling us that he had never submitted any of his projects to RC Car Action before. After seeing the pics of this Axial SCX10 G6—Kyle, what were you waiting for?!? Kyle tells us that for a recent competition he shortened the wheelbase and made custom body mounts to fit […]
Axial Wraith Mad Max Custom by Dan Boyle [Reader’s Ride]

Axial Wraith Mad Max Custom by Dan Boyle [Reader’s Ride]

This summer’s high-octane reboot of the cinematic ode to automotive mayhem Mad Max: Fury Road inspired us to showcase some RC road warriors back in in our July issue, and we’ve been receiving mad creations from you guys ever since. With the Bluray just hitting the shelves this month, we figured that was a good […]

Aaron Bailey’s Real-Rust Rat Wraith [Reader’s Ride]

Aaron Bailey’s Real-Rust Rat Wraith [Reader’s Ride]

Aaron Bailey has a fondness for metal-bodied trucks. A few months back he sent us pics of his Tonka truck/Ascender conversion. This time it’s an Axial Wraith 1.9 clad in minimalist metal panels bolted to the tube frame for a decidedly rat-rod look. The panels are steel sheet, weathered with a “special potion” of Aaron’s […]
Surf’s Up Traxxas Slash C-10 [Reader’s Ride]

Surf’s Up Traxxas Slash C-10 [Reader’s Ride]

This Chevy C-10 built by Robert Stallings has us yearning for beach weather again. This Slash 4×4-based truck is decked out with scale surfboards and fishing rods that he custom crafted himself, along with the surf rack and the front bumper. The boards are balsa wood sanded to a fine finish. The bumper, rack and […]

SCX10-based Croc Hunter Land Cruiser [Reader’s Ride]

SCX10-based Croc Hunter Land Cruiser [Reader’s Ride]

Wesley Steinke’s truck started off as an Axial SCX10 Honcho, but with a donor body from a Crocodile Hunter toy truck, it’s now a beautifully detailed Toyota Land Cruiser 70 UTE complete with a reworked drivetrain to accommodate the body’s shorter wheelbase. The upper and lower links and MIP driveshafts were cut down, re-centered and […]
Mike MacKenzie’s Awesome Metal Mulisha Replica [Reader’s Ride]

Mike MacKenzie’s Awesome Metal Mulisha Replica [Reader’s Ride]

This sweet monster truck was sent to us by Mike MacKenzie from Westboro, MA. He said that it started life as an HPI Wheely King and with many modifications it has been turned into the Monster Jam World Finals champ Metal Mulisha. The body was painted by Terry Plum of The Monster Factory and looks […]

Picturesque Tamiya Clod Buster by Scott DelFino [Reader’s Ride]

Picturesque Tamiya Clod Buster by Scott DelFino [Reader’s Ride]

There are many ways to get your rig into Reader’s Rides. A cool truck or car is a must, of course. But killer photos are just as key, and Scott DelFino’s scenic sunset snaps of his Tamiya Clod Buster on a Florida beach jumped out at us immediately. Scott’s ‘Buster is mostly stock and very […]
Custom SWB Vaterra Twin Hammers by Ronald Martin [Reader’s Ride]

Custom SWB Vaterra Twin Hammers by Ronald Martin [Reader’s Ride]

Ronald Martin’s bug-bodied Twin Hammers is a perfect reminder of how modest beginnings can lead to great results. He tells us that this project all started with a donated spare parts chassis he inherited from a friend. He dug into his own stash of leftover parts to put the basic foundation together. He had some […]

Maxxed out Traxxas T-Maxx by Rob DeLeon [Reader’s Ride]

Maxxed out Traxxas T-Maxx by Rob DeLeon [Reader’s Ride]

This Traxxas T-Maxx started life like any other, but Rob DeLeon (of Bakersfield, CA) soon lost control of his investment. Nearly $3,000 later he has the truck you see before you: the Supermaxx—which he has now owned for 15 years and he has been upgrading it fairly continuously all along. It has an Unlimited Engineering […]
Tamiya Mountaineer Survivor by Kyle Taylor [Reader’s Ride]

Tamiya Mountaineer Survivor by Kyle Taylor [Reader’s Ride]

Kyle Taylor sent us pictures of his Tamiya Mountaineer which he bought and built way back in 1993. The truck looks pretty mint for being old enough to legally buy a beer! (You know — if RC trucks could drink beer…or buy stuff.) It even still has the original RS-750-SH motor and transmission. Kyle upgraded […]

Axial Wraith Corvette Conversion by Dan Boyle [Reader’s Ride]

Axial Wraith Corvette Conversion by Dan Boyle [Reader’s Ride]

We featured another of Dan Boyle’s creations a few months ago, and every time we get an email from him with a new project we know it’s going to be something special. This time he sent photos of this sweet ’58 Corvette. Believe it or not, Dan started with an Axial Wraith chassis, on which […]
Tamiya Clod Buster CAD Custom by Danielle Colen [Reader’s Ride]

Tamiya Clod Buster CAD Custom by Danielle Colen [Reader’s Ride]

You’ve got to respect a woman who CAD-designs her own custom monster truck chassis! That’s just what Danielle Colen did with her custom Clod Buster. She loosely based the chassis design after Tom Meents’ Maximum Destruction truck, then had the parts machined and powdercoated. She bolted on stock SCX10 shocks to mounts from Crawford Performance […]
