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 […]

Tonka Tough 8×8 [READER’S RIDE]

At the heart of Ken Sutherland’s heavy metal build is a 1960s-era Tonka truck cab, which he added onto for nearly a year until he ended up with the 4-foot-long beast you see here. The entire body (aside from that vintage lower cab section) is fabricated from aluminum and held together with more than 200 […]

Kyosho Scorpion Online Build

Kyosho Scorpion Online Build

Here’s a link to the Scorpion unboxing, in case you missed it. With unpacking the kit out of the way, I’m ready to start spinning wrenches.

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]

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 […]

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 […]

Full-Custom “Yeti” Monster Truck [READER’S RIDE]

Full-Custom “Yeti” Monster Truck [READER’S RIDE]

We see a lot of vehicles with the name “Yeti” attached to them, but none quite like Kevin Adair’s custom scale monster truck. And we mean monster! He started with a KK2 chassis that he powder-coated blue. He uses an all-metal AX10 transmission with freestyle axles and swaybars connected to mounts that Kevin fabricated himself. […]
