Pit Bull 2.2″ Rock Beast II Tires [Review]

Pit Bull is a well known company in the full-size automotive world, and the company produces tires for off-road vehicles including ATVs and UTVs, 4X4s and even pullers. RC tires are the newest direction for the brand, and the 1/10 scale rubber is designed by the same engineers that get the full-size treads just right. […]

The M7WCS V2.1 is the latest engine to come from the gang at REDs Racing. It’s a .21 size engine and ready to push a 1/8-scale on-road car up to speed in a hurry. Special attention has been paid to the engine’s front crankcase bearing which is an area where engines can lose power and […]

Project Old School Update

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]

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 […]
WHY ARE WE NOT RACING THESE?

WHY ARE WE NOT RACING THESE?

I hereby proclaim that we all need to be racing Tamiya Honda City Turbos. There’s nothing remotely race-worthy about it (heck, it’s designed to do wheelies), which is why I want to race it. Spec-class style of course, just build it box stock and race it. OK, you can add bearings, but that’s it. How […]

ECX Goes Crawling With New TEMPER RTR [VIDEO]

ECX Goes Crawling With New TEMPER RTR [VIDEO]

ECX has plenty of variety in its 17-model lineup, but no rock crawlers–until now. The new Temper is 1/18-scale solid-axle crawler with 4-link suspension, brushed power, waterproof electronics, and plenty of aluminum parts (see that blue stuff? There you go). A battery and charger are in the box, so the Temper is ready to hit […]
What Can You Do With Hitec’s New Robo-Servo?

What Can You Do With Hitec’s New Robo-Servo?

Other than sticking it into a robot (duh), what would you do with Hitec’s latest robot servo? Instead of moving to an endpoint, the HSR-2645CR spins its output shaft continuously in either direction, with proportional speed up to 46rpm. You could use it to crank a jack screw and lift a dump bed, or make […]

Team Associated and Carson Wernimont Part Ways

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. Associated isn’t […]

Serpent Viper 977-EVO: The Newest 1/8-Scale Nitro Asphalt Killer

Serpent has been a respected manufacturer in the racing scene for a long time and when they announce a new car, people take notice.

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

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 […]
