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]

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 […]

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.

Kong Gone Wild! – Tamiya Konghead/Wild Willy Hybrid [READER’S RIDE]

Reader’s Rides is sponsored by PRO-LINE. Click for the latest gear! 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 […]

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 […]

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. Originally a Pennsylvania native, Greg now resides in Osaka, Japan and he gave the truck some […]

Axial SCX10-based Toyota Half-Track is All Awesome [READER’S RIDE]

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 […]
