When Tamiya announced its G601 chassis Konghead 6×6 Steven Arnold of Tasmania, Australia knew he would have to build the crazy crossbreed you see here. He had previously converted a Wild Willy 2 to ride on the 4×4 GF01 from the Bullhead, so he knew how […]

Axial SCX10 II – SCX of Ice and Fire [Reader’s Ride]

Reader’s Rides is sponsored by PRO-LINE. Click for the latest gear! Kodiak, Alaska can get pretty frosty in winter, so in the evenings Cole Hockema likes to warm his Axial SCX10 II by the fire! No word on specific fireproofing mods for the kit-built crawler, but it can handle the ice part thanks to snow […]
Nitro Corvette Catch Car [READER’S RIDE]

Nitro Corvette Catch Car [READER’S RIDE]

Don Almeido tells us he owes much of the inspiration for his throwback Corvette Interceptor to the O.S. TZ-TX .18 nitro motor and the review entitled “Weapon of Mass Combustion” that ran back in the day in our sister publication RC Nitro Magazine. He was inspired by that article to build a car around that […]

Mud Buster to Lust After [READER’S RIDE]

Reader’s Rides is sponsored by PRO-LINE. Click for the latest gear! Nicholas Brien’s custom Clod won us over not only for the great looks and long list of upgrades, but also because Nicholas sent us this pic of him bombing through the mud with it, and we respect anyone with a truck this nice who […]

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 […]
Trick Toyota SCX10 from the Land of the Rising Sun [READER’S RIDE]

Trick Toyota SCX10 from the Land of the Rising Sun [READER’S RIDE]

Greg Zawatski didn’t re-build his SCX10 right away but after running it stock (as a Jeep JK Unlimited RTR) for two years it was due for a freshening up, and he decided he might as well make some strategic upgrades. Originally a Pennsylvania native, Greg now resides in Osaka, Japan and he gave the truck some […]

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 […]

HPI Wheely King Crawler [READER’S RIDE]

Here’s one you don’t see every day: HPI’s wheelie-popping monster truck turned into a rock-crawling tube frame buggy. Steve Glasbergen from Tsawwassen, British Columbia sent it in.The tube chassis itself is from Integy, while power comes courtesy of a 55-turn motor and HobbyWing speed control with drag brake hidden under the vented hood panel. All […]

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 […]
This Toyota Half-Track is All Awesome [READER’S RIDE]

This Toyota Half-Track is All Awesome [READER’S RIDE]

Toyota actually built a prototype half-track and Matthew Kett’s ultra-realistic Axial-based build recreates it amazingly well. It took him 8 months to piece together, starting with an SCX10. He salvaged the front and rear axles, transmission, and chassis rails, and spliced them with a Heng Long Walker Bulldog 1:16 RC tank. He tells us the […]
