Glenn Castillo loves the way his TRX-4 drives, so he put his focus on increasing his truck’s looks and scale realism—a feat he achieved spectacularly in our opinion! He didn’t like how Traxxas covered up the windows so he cut them out and re-glassed […]

Hot Rod Streeeetch-job ’32 Ford [READERS RIDE]

Hot Rod Streeeetch-job ’32 Ford [READERS RIDE]

Scott Lempert tells us the inspiration for this build came from a 1/8-scale Monogram engine kit that was given to him by a friend. The ‘50s-era 312 Y-block motor had the option for a wild direct crank-driven Potvin supercharger, but fitting it in a hot rod would mean an extended frame chassis, so Scott scratch-built […]

Axial SCX10 Trick Toyota from the Land of the Rising Sun [READER’S RIDE]

Greg Zawatski didn’t re-build his SCX10 right away but after running it stock (as a Jeep JK Unlimited RTR) for two years it was due for a freshening up, and he decided he might as well make some strategic upgrades. Originally a Pennsylvania native, Greg now resides in Osaka, Japan and he gave the truck some […]

Axial SCX10-based Toyota Half-Track is All Awesome [READER’S RIDE]

Toyota actually built a prototype half-track and Matthew Kett’s ultra-realistic Axial-based build recreates it amazingly well. It took him 8 months to piece together, starting with an SCX10. He salvaged the front and rear axles, transmission, and chassis rails, and spliced them with a Heng Long Walker Bulldog 1:16 RC tank. He tells us the […]

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.

Classic Altered Chevy Drag Car [READER’S RIDE]

Classic Altered 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 […]

He modified the suspension with Axial SCX10 upright shock mounts in front, and relocated the battery […]
