HPI Wheely King Crawler [READER’S RIDE]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

RC Gas Aluminum 1931 Ford Tudor [READER’S RIDE]

Robby built his ’31 Ford Tudor sedan almost entirely by hand, crafting an all-aluminum body and fuel tank. The interior is aluminum too, but the frame is solid steel — made of sheet and angle iron of various thicknesses. The Ford is powered by a 21cc 2-stroke gas engine. The front axle is solid in […]

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

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 […]
Vaterra Twin Hammers Classic Camaro [READER’S RIDE]

Vaterra Twin Hammers Classic Camaro [READER’S RIDE]

We really like the look of Juan Turcios’ Vaterra Twin Hammers ’69 Camaro – and you can tell by the patina its sees a lot of good action. The body is a Vaterra Camaro RS shell painted Tuxedo Black. He modified the suspension with Axial SCX10 upright shock mounts in front, and relocated the battery […]

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. […]

The 6-gear transmission has a complete set of 48-pitch Thorp gears and a […]

The RC4WD Blazer hard body is an amazingly versatile piece. We’ve seen scale rigs, crawlers, monster trucks and now comes this hot rod muscle truck.
