Pro-Line Ambush Custom Van [READER’S RIDE]

Pro-Line Ambush Custom Van [READER’S RIDE]

Anthony Stephens’ little Ambush Shorty Van is proof you don’t need a big truck to have big fun. Anthony received his Ambush as a gift, and he was excited because the plethora of static model kit bodies available in this scale gave him lots of parts to work with. He chose the old-school shorty van […]
Custom Trophy Truck – VIDEO [READER’S RIDE]

Custom Trophy Truck – VIDEO [READER’S RIDE]

Juan Turcios built his truck around a custom frame of 1/8-inch thick 5055 aluminum. A friend at TenthScaleLifestyle built a full-metal cage for it. The solid rear axle and and front A-arms are from Metal Concepts R/C. Juan made custom faux reservoirs for the Pro-Line Powerstrokes in front and Axial Yeti shocks in back. It […]

TTR Ripper Pro Clod Buster [READER’S RIDE]

TTR Ripper Pro Clod Buster [READER’S RIDE]

Justin Chaffin credits his friend James Merrill with helping him bring his vision for a shaft-driven Thunder Tech Racing Ripper Pro to life. James machined a mount for the SCX10 transmission along with aluminum upper links and new cross-members to widen the chassis. He also added TTR’s delrin with carbon fiber lower links. Castle Creations […]
Custom 6×6 Crawler [READER’S RIDE]

Custom 6×6 Crawler [READER’S RIDE]

Getting a custom 6×6 truck to have the efficiency and range of motion to be a fully capable crawler can be a challenge, but Daniel Anguita wasn’t interested in a shelf-queen, so he put the work in. He grafted two sets of Axial SCX10 frame rails together with aluminum braces for the truck’s backbone. He […]

This Mega-Sized Mini is JET Powered! [READER’S RIDE]

This Mega-Sized Mini is JET Powered! [READER’S RIDE]

Jerome Swift is the proprietor of JS Hobbies and Models, and he envisioned this turbine powered WRC Mini as a fun way to promote his shop. He tells us that it was one of his most complex and challenging builds, which took him a year to complete. Power comes from a JetCat P80 Jet Turbine […]
“Wart Hog” Axial SMT10 Monster Truck [READER’S RIDE]

“Wart Hog” Axial SMT10 Monster Truck [READER’S RIDE]

Jimmy Louis had been waiting years for a decent tube-frame monster truck to come out, so when Axial released their SMT10 he knew he had to have it. He dubbed his “The Warthog” and stuffed it with a Castle Creations SCT controller with a 3600kV motor. He added Boom Racing Type G piggyback shocks with […]

RC4WD TF2 Blackfoot Hybrid [READER’S RIDE]

RC4WD TF2 Blackfoot Hybrid [READER’S RIDE]

Jonathan Mathews’ TF2 is deceptively subtle, but the closer you look the cooler this truck gets. To begin with, there’s the Tamiya Blackfoot body. Look closer and you’ll see that this is an extended cab Ford — something Tamiya never made. So Jonathan and his buddy Jim (who runs a body shop) spliced together two […]
Axial Wraith-based Trail Rig [READER’S RIDE]

Axial Wraith-based Trail Rig [READER’S RIDE]

Jason Hope sent us these pics of his new trail rig overlooking the ocean near his home in Pacifica, CA. Its an Axial Wraith with a custom polished aluminum frame and cage.  Power comes via an HPI 15t motor run by a Castle Creations Sidewinder controller. It rolls on metal beadlock wheels with Pro-Line 2.3 […]

Custom 1/8-Scale ’41 Willys [READER’S RIDE]

Custom 1/8-Scale ’41 Willys [READER’S RIDE]

Henry Martinez is a hardcore Chevy guy going back decades — he currently owns a ’57 Nomad and a ’68 El Camino SS396 that he’s done full frame-off restorations on. He says he can’t do as much building and restoring of the full-scale stuff as he’d like anymore, so he’s focused his talents on building […]
Axial SCX10 II    [READER’S RIDE]

Axial SCX10 II [READER’S RIDE]

Anthony Newman is obviously an Axial fan, as you can see from the pair of Jeeps he sent in. He runs his ‘00 Cherokee-bodied SCX10 on 3S Lipo, powering a 55-turn motor and an Axial AE5 controller with a 6V Castle BEC. He dressed up the exterior with a set of Integy fog lights and Axial’s […]

Vaterra Twin Hammers Trail Truck  [READER’S RIDE]

Vaterra Twin Hammers Trail Truck [READER’S RIDE]

The Vaterra is nominally a desert truck, but Jason Hope’s Twin Hammers spends plenty of time getting muddy on mountain trails near his Pacifica, Callifornia home. The muck looks at home on the Pro-Line ’72 Chevy C10 body done in a rusty beater truck motif by Jason himself. He selected upsized Interco Super Swampers from […]
Axial SCX10 with RC4WD Hardbody [READER’S RIDE]

Axial SCX10 with RC4WD Hardbody [READER’S RIDE]

Here’s a beautiful truck in a beautiful setting sent in by Cameron McLean. The chassis is an Axial SCX10-2, dressed up with a 4-door Mojave Hard Body from RC4WD with Customs stripes by Ernesto at URScale banners. Pro-Line supplied the front bumper and 2-inch Light Bar. Pro-Line also delivered the Swamper TSL SX Tires and […]
