Project Old School Update

It’s been a slow go for my old school monster truck due to a recent move. All the parts have been sitting in boxes for a few months and I was finally able to free them and start building again. Here’s a little bit of an update of what is going on with this project. [...]

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!

Team Associated and Carson Wernimont Part Ways

Despite strong results after joining Team Associated for the 2015 season, Carson Wernimont has split from the team. It’s not quite clear who broke up with who (see Carson’s and Associated’s statements below),  but it’s obvious Team Associated and the 2014 IFMAR 1/8 Nitro Buggy podium driver simply didn’t see eye to eye.

Team Orion Vortex dDrive: The End of Speed Controls? [VIDEO]

Motor, battery, speed control. Those three items are what make up an electric power system. Or they used to, at least; Orion’s new Vortex dDrive system integrates throttle circuitry directly into the motor, eliminating a separate speed control. The motor plugs directly into the receiver and battery, and gets its own power switch with setup [...]
