HPI Vorza Built for 100mph Blasts El Mirage

Vintage hot-rod style, modern 1/8 scale buggy tech and a heaping helping of brushless horsepower sounds like a fun speed-run recipe to us, and that’s exactly what you’ll find in this throwback to our “Electric Performance” issue.

This week, we go back in time to take a look at what most consider to be the first true RC monster truck: the Marui Big Bear. Back in 1984, this 1/12 scale crusher set the standard for a fat-tire stance with real monster proportions. the Big Bear is positively stone-age compared to today’s trucks, but […]

Pro-Line Now Has a Stadium Truck (sort of)

Pro-Line’s PRO-2 SC short course truck, PRO-2 Buggy and PRO-MT monster truck aren’t being officially joined by a stadium truck (that we assume would be called the PRO-ST), but this build from Pro-Line’s Holeshot blog sure looks factory. It’s based on a modded PRO-MT, and the conversion is easy. There’s no telling if this could […]
