This Monster Stone Crushes It [READER’S RIDE]

This Monster Stone Crushes It [READER’S RIDE]

Reader’s Rides is sponsored by PRO-LINE. Click for the latest gear! We dig the recent trend toward ultra-scale RC monster trucks patterned after Monster Jam competition trucks that’s been happening lately. David Napier’s truck is a perfect example—patterned after the Super Duty Ford-bodied “Stone Crusher.” Its based on a South West Monster Shop KK2 chassis […]
Streeeetch-job ’32 Ford [READERS RIDE]

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 […]

Land Shark HPI RS4 Porsche [READER’S RIDE]

With its list of upgrades, Don Almeido’s RS4—based on the Sport 3 Flux Falken Porsche kit—is ready to take a bite out of stock touring cars. First up were HPI’s carbon fiber front and rear shock towers and center drive shaft cover. The shaft itself was replaced with an Exotek Racing aluminum unit, along with […]

TTR Ripper Pro Clod Buster [READER’S RIDE]

Justin Chaffin credits his friend James Merrill with helping him bring his vision for a shaft-driven Thunder Tech Racing Ripper Pro to life. 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. Castle Creations […]
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 […]

Its an Axial Wraith with a custom polished aluminum frame and cage.  Power comes via an HPI 15t motor run by a Castle Creations Sidewinder controller. It rolls on metal beadlock wheels with Pro-Line 2.3 […]

Axial SCX10 II    [READER’S RIDE]

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 […]
Axial Rubicon Unlimited [READER’S RIDE]

Axial Rubicon Unlimited [READER’S RIDE]

Todd Henderson’s SCX10 started off as a trade he received, that already had SSD D60 axles, a JR brick battery plate, a Holmes Hobbies TorqueMaster controller, a Castle 10a BEC and a Hitec 7980th servo with an Axial aluminum servo horn. I added a Holmes Hobbies TorqueMaster Expert 40T motor to turn a Robinson Racing pinion, […]

Custom Scale Little Red Wagon [READER’S RIDE]

Custom Scale Little Red Wagon [READER’S RIDE]

Scott Lempert, one of our scratch-build regulars, is back at it with another tribute to a drag-racing classic: The Little Red Wagon Dodge A100 — the legendary wheelie machine driven by Bill Golden from 1965 to 1975. Scott built the body out of styrene sheet after studying numerous period photos of the LRW. He also […]
Axial Deadbolt Trail Beast [READER’S RIDE]

Axial Deadbolt Trail Beast [READER’S RIDE]

Greg Zawatski’s Axial SCX10 Deadbolt may have started as a stock RTR, but it didn’t stay that way for long. He wanted to take its trail capabilities to the next level so he started tossing upgrades at it: SSD axle housings–a D60 with 36t overdrive gears, CVDs and brass beef tubes in front, and out […]
