Superman Nitro Unlimited Puller [READER’S RIDE]

Superman Nitro Unlimited Puller [READER’S RIDE]

Meet Superman. This unlimited class nitro puller is built by Zeek Heard of No Limit RC and (loosely!) based on HPI Savage parts. It sits on a 3/16-inch thick laser-cut aircraft aluminum chassis stretched to 48 inches long, and it weighs 33 pounds (40 with the dually tire setup, which also gives it a 32-inch […]

Since the buy-out, the “new” HPI has been posting regular updates about the brand’s progress, including the state of the eagerly-anticipated Venture FJ.

Custom Mohave Crawler [READER’S RIDE]

Custom Mohave Crawler [READER’S RIDE]

Scott Oney tells us the idea with this project was to build up a Class 1 scale truck on a set of Losi Comp Crawler axles so that he wouldn’t need a speed control with a drag brake. He chose an Axial Dingo chassis, then had to figure out how to mount his RC4WD Mojave […]
Traxxas Telluride Bronco [READER’S RIDE]

Traxxas Telluride Bronco [READER’S RIDE]

Henry Brady liked the look of the ’73 Ford Bronco body for the HPI Crawler King, so he adapted it to fit his Traxxas Telluride with some careful cutting and trimming. To give it the right stance he bolted on a set of 2.2 Mudslinger XL tires on Integy Orange high-mass 6-spoke wheels. He swtiched […]

Traxxas Revo 1/5-scale Conversion by Rick Ortega [READER’S RIDE]

Traxxas Revo 1/5-scale Conversion by Rick Ortega [READER’S RIDE]

Rick was inspired to build his own oversized Revo after reading Kevin Hetmanski’s Project Traxxas Revo 3.3 back in 2015. Rick had a tired old stock Revo with a blown engine and badly in need of an overhaul. What you see here evolved over time. The current iteration sports an LRP ZR .32 Spec 2 […]

Tamiya Jimny Crawler by Daniel Siegl [READER’S RIDE]

Daniel Siegl likes a challenge. When Daniel realized that his trip to the US from his native Austria would perfectly coincide with the 5th Annual Recon G6 Birthday Bash, held at Moon Rocks in Reno, NV, he decided to put a truck together to compete. But rather than go with a conventional crawler, he decided […]

Axial Racing Exo Terra Trophy Truck by Richard Derry [READER’S RIDE]

Axial Racing Exo Terra Trophy Truck by Richard Derry [READER’S RIDE]

Richard Derry liked the nimble speed and scale character of the Axial Racing Exo Terra buggy, but he wanted something more unique so he converted his into a lookalike Trophy Truck inspired by the Toyota driven by Ivan “Iron Man” Stewart. As you can see from the body-off shot, Richard added a bunch of aluminum […]
Tamiya and HPI Lowriders by Demitree Baldwin [READERS RIDE]

Tamiya and HPI Lowriders by Demitree Baldwin [READERS RIDE]

Demitree has taken his electric touring cars in a thoroughly original direction with a little help from classic Chevy bodies from Pegasus and Parma. He has converted three cars into lowriders that look and drive the part thanks to controllable, articulating suspension. The Pegasus ’64 Impala rides on a Tamiya TT-02 chassis. There’s a Parma […]

Traxxas/Axial Hybrid Scout 80 by Scott Lempert [Reader’s Ride]

Traxxas/Axial Hybrid Scout 80 by Scott Lempert [Reader’s Ride]

We could probably do an entire column just on Scott Lempert’s scale projects, so prolific is he with off-season building. One in particular that caught our eye was this ’63 International Scout 80—not just for the styrene body which Scott crafted himself, but for the unusual mix of components. The backbone is a set of […]
