Rough N’ Rusty Assault Vehicle [READER’S RIDE]

Rough N’ Rusty Assault Vehicle [READER’S RIDE]

Dan Boyle is a prolific builder and he sends us pix of many of his projects—which are usually scale hot rods and monster trucks. This time he sent in something a little different. This started out as a 1/18-scale Tiger Tank that Dan retrofit with an Axial Wraith frame and running gear. He upgraded the […]

Custom A/FX Chevy Drag Car [READER’S RIDE]

Here’s a piece of custom-built drag racing history from Scott Lempert. Right before Funny Cars came on the scene in the 1960s several altered-wheelbase FX (factory-experimental) cars toured the match-race circuit. One such, built by race header king Doug Thorley, was the “Chevy 2 Much” — so named because it was based on a 1963 […]

Vaterra Twin Hammers Classic Camaro [READER’S RIDE]

Vaterra Twin Hammers Classic Camaro [READER’S RIDE]

We really like the look of Juan Turcios’ Vaterra Twin Hammers ’69 Camaro – and you can tell by the patina its sees a lot of good action. The body is a Vaterra Camaro RS shell painted Tuxedo Black. He modified the suspension with Axial SCX10 upright shock mounts in front, and relocated the battery […]
RC4WD Chevy Blazer Hotrod [READER’S RIDE]

RC4WD Chevy Blazer Hotrod [READER’S RIDE]

The RC4WD Blazer hard body is an amazingly versatile piece. We’ve seen scale rigs, crawlers, monster trucks and now comes this hot rod muscle truck. Based on an Axial Wraith frame, Dan Boyle has added ultra-scale custom touches like a killer smallblock V-8 with a hi-rise Edelbrock tunnel ram intake, dual Holleys and copper wire […]

Custom Trophy Truck – VIDEO [READER’S RIDE]

Juan Turcios built his truck around a custom frame of 1/8-inch thick 5055 aluminum. A friend at TenthScaleLifestyle built a full-metal cage for it. The solid rear axle and and front A-arms are from Metal Concepts R/C. Juan made custom faux reservoirs for the Pro-Line Powerstrokes in front and Axial Yeti shocks in back. It […]

James machined a mount for the SCX10 transmission along with aluminum upper links and new cross-members to widen the chassis. He also added TTR’s delrin with carbon fiber lower links.

Custom 6×6 Crawler [READER’S RIDE]

Custom 6×6 Crawler [READER’S RIDE]

Getting a custom 6×6 truck to have the efficiency and range of motion to be a fully capable crawler can be a challenge, but Daniel Anguita wasn’t interested in a shelf-queen, so he put the work in. He grafted two sets of Axial SCX10 frame rails together with aluminum braces for the truck’s backbone. He […]
“Wart Hog” Axial SMT10 Monster Truck [READER’S RIDE]

“Wart Hog” Axial SMT10 Monster Truck [READER’S RIDE]

Jimmy Louis had been waiting years for a decent tube-frame monster truck to come out, so when Axial released their SMT10 he knew he had to have it. He dubbed his “The Warthog” and stuffed it with a Castle Creations SCT controller with a 3600kV motor. He added Boom Racing Type G piggyback shocks with […]

Axial SCX10 II [READER’S RIDE]

Anthony Newman is obviously an Axial fan, as you can see from the pair of Jeeps he sent in. He runs his ‘00 Cherokee-bodied SCX10 on 3S Lipo, powering a 55-turn motor and an Axial AE5 controller with a 6V Castle BEC. He dressed up the exterior with a set of Integy fog lights and Axial’s […]

Here’s a beautiful truck in a beautiful setting sent in by Cameron McLean. The chassis is an Axial SCX10-2, dressed up with a 4-door Mojave Hard Body from RC4WD with Customs stripes by Ernesto at URScale banners. Pro-Line supplied the front bumper and 2-inch Light Bar. Pro-Line also delivered the Swamper TSL SX Tires and […]
Custom Chevy K5 Blazer Drag Truck [READER’S RIDE]

Custom Chevy K5 Blazer Drag Truck [READER’S RIDE]

With all the great scale truck hard bodies now on the market, it’s easy to see why Dan Boyle chose one for his latest scale build. But rather than go the traditional truck route, he combined his love of drag racers with RC4WD’s excellent injection-molded K5 Blazer. It sits on a heavily modified Axial Wraith […]
