Weather-Worn Drag Slash [READER’S RIDE]

Weather-Worn Drag Slash [READER’S RIDE]

Reader’s Rides is sponsored by PRO-LINE. Click for the latest gear! There’s just something about the mix of junk-yard beater truck looks mixed with serious ¼-mile hardware that appealed to us about Keith Brewer’s Slash. The body is Pro-Line’s 1966 Ford Stepside which Keith mounted low over a 2wd Slash chassis. He replaced the suspension […]
Traxxas Telluride Taken to the Max [READER’S RIDE]

Traxxas Telluride Taken to the Max [READER’S RIDE]

Reader’s Rides is sponsored by PRO-LINE. Click for the latest gear!   James Giddens started out with a perfectly stock Traxxas Telluride which he drove the wheels off of. As parts wore out, he gradually upgraded them to form the one-of-a-kind ride you see here. James credits Pro-Line and RC4WD with the cosmetic improvements — […]

Traxxas TRX-4 Takes Realism to the Xtreme  [READER’S RIDE]

Traxxas TRX-4 Takes Realism to the Xtreme [READER’S RIDE]

Reader’s Rides is sponsored by PRO-LINE. Click for the latest gear! 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 […]
Traxxas E-Maxx-Utility Tow Rig [READER’S RIDE]

Traxxas E-Maxx-Utility Tow Rig [READER’S RIDE]

Reader’s Rides is sponsored by PRO-LINE. Click for the latest gear! Mike Eichhorn’s original Traxxas E-Maxx is cool enough to make Reader’s Rides all on its own, but when he told us about the power-tilt trailer he designed to go with it he was a lock. The E-Maxx is fairly stock except for the Pro-Line […]

Axial SCX10 Retro-Beauty Canuck Crawler [READER’S RIDE]

Reader’s Rides is sponsored by PRO-LINE. Click for the latest gear! François Dion credits his buddy Miguel Bounadere for the spectacular photos taken near his home in Québec, Canada, but the workmanship on this gorgeous SCX10 II is all his own. It was treated to a full upgrade of ST Racing Concepts chassis parts under […]
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 […]

Tonka Tough 8×8 [READER’S RIDE]

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. The fun starts with a bunch of aluminum bits… The chassis rails and steering bellcrank are assembled first, with hex hardware used throughout. The chassis rails are stout, solid-aluminum extrusions […]

Axial Wraith Tank — Rough N’ Rusty Assault Vehicle [READER’S RIDE]

Axial Wraith Tank — Rough N’ Rusty Assault Vehicle [READER’S RIDE]

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. This started out as a 1/18-scale Tiger Tank that Dan retrofit with an Axial Wraith frame and running gear. He upgraded the […]
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 […]

HPI RS4 Porsche Land Shark [READER’S RIDE]

HPI RS4 Porsche Land Shark [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 […]
Southwest Monster Shop KK2 “Yeti” Monster Truck [READER’S RIDE]

Southwest Monster Shop KK2 “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. […]
