Axial SCX10 Trick Toyota 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.

Axial SCX10-based 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 […]

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!
