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 […]

Teaser: New REDS TXX Pro 1/8 ESC Gives Big Vehicle Users Another Option

1/8-scale nitro vehicles like Buggies and Monster Trucks are a lot of fun, but outdoor weather, local spots and the complexity of nitro can limit their use. It comes as no surprise that electric vehicles are filling that gap and providing another level of fun. Reds is aware of this and is poised to bring […]

Maxxed out Traxxas T-Maxx by Rob DeLeon [Reader’s Ride]

This Traxxas T-Maxx started life like any other, but Rob DeLeon (of Bakersfield, CA) soon lost control of his investment. Nearly $3,000 later he has the truck you see before you: the Supermaxx—which he has now owned for 15 years and he has been upgrading it fairly continuously all along.

Tamiya Mountaineer Survivor by Kyle Taylor [Reader’s Ride]

Tamiya Mountaineer Survivor by Kyle Taylor [Reader’s Ride]

Kyle Taylor sent us pictures of his Tamiya Mountaineer which he bought and built way back in 1993. The truck looks pretty mint for being old enough to legally buy a beer!

Tamiya Clod Buster CAD Custom by Danielle Colen [Reader’s Ride]

You’ve got to respect a woman who CAD-designs her own custom monster truck chassis! That’s just what Danielle Colen did with her custom Clod Buster. She loosely based the chassis design after Tom Meents’ Maximum Destruction truck, then had the parts machined and powdercoated. She bolted on stock SCX10 shocks to mounts from Crawford Performance […]
