RC4WD Beefs Up the Vaterra Twin Hammers

The metal-masters at RC4WD have a new option for the Vaterra Twin Hammers that amps up realism and durability in equal measure. The machined aluminum rear axle case looks incredible (see for yourself) and includes all the hardware shown for easy installation. RC4WD also offers aluminum rear trailing arms that would look great with this […]

New Online Build: Tamiya XV-01 Lancia Delta Integrale

Our next step-by-step build is a Tamiya XV-01, the latest multi-terrain platform from the Japanese giant. I’m building the Lancia Delta Integrale rally-car version, a body Tamiya has offered on a number of different models before, and a great choice for such a rally-ready chassis as the XV-01. Here’s a look at what’s in the box, […]

RC Goes WiFi — Kyosho Announces New Receiver For iOS and Android

RC Goes WiFi — Kyosho Announces New Receiver For iOS and Android

We doubt phone-control will replace radio-control for serious RC driving (there’s just no beating a good pistol grip transmitter), but Kyosho’s new iReceiver system does look like a lot of fun. The receiver installs in the usual way to provide you with WiFi control via iPhone, iPad, or Android. The app graphically replicates a two-stick […]

Airtronics Jumps Into the Speed Control World With New Super Vortex Zero!

Airtronics is no stranger to making speed controls, but the Super Vortex Zero and Sanwa Synchronized Link (SSL) bring more than just a cool video game-sounding name to the table: not only does the new unit boast an incredible list of specs and features, but it has a new trick, too: when hooked up to […]

Traxxas popular Stampede 4X4 will soon be available in a brushed version that trims about $120 from the price of the brushless “VXL” model while preserving most of the features that made the Stampede 4X4 our “Truck of the Year” choice in 2011.

Losi’s New Desert Buggy XL: 1/5 Scale 4WD Open-Wheeler

Losi’s New Desert Buggy XL: 1/5 Scale 4WD Open-Wheeler

Losi’s latest gas-burner goes for a desert-buggy look, and is built on a unique chassis–it’s not a re-skinned 5IVE-T. The engine is different too, a 23cc mill instead of the truck’s 26cc powerplant. Spektrum radio gear is standard,  and the Desert Buggy XL rolls out RTR just as you see it here. Looking forward to […]
Pro-Line Goes Vintage with New ’66 Ford F-100 Shell

Pro-Line Goes Vintage with New ’66 Ford F-100 Shell

We’ve sneak-peeked Pro-Line’s vintage F-100 shell before, now it’s officially released and definitely lookin’ good. The body arrives clear so you can choose your own look, but we’re especially fond of the painted-on-the-outside and weathered version Pro-Line has shown for inspiration. The flat paint really does a great job of showing off how crisply molded […]

Reedy Announces New 4-Pole SC 4X4 Motor: Sonic 544 Mach 2

Reedy Announces New 4-Pole SC 4X4 Motor: Sonic 544 Mach 2

Short-course 4X4s require a lot of muscle to get around a track quickly, a need Reedy engineers have met with this new mill: the Sonic 544 Mach 2. The 4-pole powerplant trims weight and runs cooler thanks to optimum venting and an aluminum end cap, says Reedy, and it certainly looks the business. Full press […]

Dromida Cars Escape Warehouse, Invade Home

It appears Revell’s new Dromida cars are not merely ready-to-run, but ready to run away. As the video below shows, three of the cars managed to burst free of their packaging, escape the Hobbico warehouse, and invade a suburban home where they cleverly (and magically) disguised themselves as gifts. Only the cat knows the truth… […]
