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 […]

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 Revo by Greg Simpson [READER’S RIDE]

Greg Simpson digs Revos. Who doesn’t? But this is the second decked-out Revo Greg has built and submitted to Reader’s Rides this year, and with this one—nicknamed “Wicked”—he took it up a notch, starting with a bare chassis—which he had chrome plated. Then he built the truck part by part up from that chassis, adding […]

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 […]

Axial SCX-10 Beater Farm Truck by Deon Person [READER’S RIDE]

Deon Person sent in this well-weathered Axial SCX-10 wearing a Pro-Line ’50s Chevy pickup body. His concept was to create a truck that been living the hard life on the farm for years. He gave it a rusty finish and dented and distressed the body underneath. The winshield is cracked and…are those bullet holes? There’s […]

Losi Goes Huge with Mega-Sized, 1/5 Scale Monster Truck XL

Losi Goes Huge with Mega-Sized, 1/5 Scale Monster Truck XL

Monster trucks are already RC’s largest type of vehicle, so when you boost one up to 1/5 scale, it’s REALLY big. Losi’s new Monster XL is over three feet long and tips the scales at nearly 40 pounds, so it’s definitely a serious machine. Available RTR with blue or black graphics, you’ll be ripping it […]
Kevin Motter has had little time with the new 22 3.0, but is already showing what it i capable of.

2015 RROC Outdoor: Under the Hood of Kevin Motter’s TQ TLR 22 3.0

The mains are running today at the 2015 Reedy Outdoor Off-Road Race of Champions, and I was able to get a peak at Kevin Motter’s TLR 22 3.0 that grabbed the TQ spot in Open 2WD buggy. In spite of the loose, dusty conditions, his buggy is almost entirely in box stock configuration. For power […]

The new TLR 22 3.0 is prepped tp hit the track at OCRC Raceway in Huntington Beach, Caifornia. Jake Thayer (buggy shown) and Kevin Motter received the buggy and extra parts and meticulously prepared it. Last night they were able to start putting it through its paces and tuning it for the famous dirt.

TLR 22 3.0 2WD Buggy In Action at OCRC

The electric off-road racing scene has been given quite a big shake up with TLR releasing their new 22 3.0 2WD buggy. The buggy isn’t just a new version, but almost a completely new platform with a host of very interesting features. We got a VIP invitation to go to OCRC Raceway in Huntington Beach […]
