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]

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]

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]

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 […]

Custom JeepZilla from Brenda Sumner [Reader’s Ride]

Custom JeepZilla from Brenda Sumner [Reader’s Ride]

West Jordan, UT must be the perfect environment for Brenda Sumner’s custom JeepZilla.  She started with a MattZilla RC Works chassis, to which she added RC4x4 Performance stainless links, Kyosho Red Velvet shocks, Team KNK stainless hardware and OttSix VooDoo tires mounted on MotoWorx wheels. The driveline consists of a Tekin Pro4 3300 motor with […]
Traxxas XO-1 Hot Wheels Hypercar by Marcus White [Readers Ride]

Traxxas XO-1 Hot Wheels Hypercar by Marcus White [Readers Ride]

What caught our attention first about Marcus White’s Traxxas XO-1 was its hot paint job–which we discovered upon reading his letter is not paint at all, but a custom vinyl wrap–that decorates this hottest of all on-road cars with the logo of that most beloved of miniature car brands: Hot Wheels. While not officially a Hot […]
