Mike Monrad’s Traxxas Stampede VXL & Bolink Legends

This week’s Reader’s Ride (make that Rides) come to us from Mike Monrad of St. Petersburg, FL. The Traxxas Stampede VXL wears a bunch of RPM upgrades including a wide front bumper and “low-visibility” wheelie bar, while the body is a JConcepts Gatecrasher that Mike sprayed himself. Looks great, just like his Bolink Lengends. Bolink is […]

Axial Yeti XL: Tech Notes & Driving Impressions

Axial Yeti XL: Tech Notes & Driving Impressions

The Axial Yeti was introduced only a few months ago and we were impressed with the new rock racer platform. Normally, when a completely new vehicle like the Yeti is released we don’t see another new release from the company for a while; but that’s not the case this time. Axial surprised all of us […]
Project Traxxas Trail Raptor

Project Traxxas Trail Raptor

Ford fans, if you like Traxxas’ take on the blue oval’s baddest off-road brawler, then you’ll love what we’ve done with it as a “project” machine. Fully decked out with everything from a steel roll cage and working lights to Castle brushless power and Pro-Line rubber, this full-mod monster looks scale on the trail and […]

Reedy Announces Blackbox 410R Competition Speed Control

Reedy motors have been longtime race winners, but always in combination with someone else’s speed control–until now, that is. With the debut of the new Blackbox 410R speed control, Reedy officially has a complete pro power system. Unsurprisingly, the Blackbox has all the features you would expect of a competition controller, including a machined aluminum […]

Pro-Line Announces 2WD PRO-MT Monster Truck Kit

Pro-Line Announces 2WD PRO-MT Monster Truck Kit

First came the PRO-2 SC short-course truck, then the PRO-2 Buggy. Now Pro-Line has taken their well-proven 2WD tech into the monster realm with the PRO-MT. Obvious differences from the other PRO models are the body, wheel, and tire combo, which pairs a tough-looking Sentinel shell with Trencher tires mounted to F-11 wheels. Pro-Line’s ProTrac […]
Losi Announces 4 New RTRs In 1/18, 1/10 & 1/24 Scale

Losi Announces 4 New RTRs In 1/18, 1/10 & 1/24 Scale

Lots to like with these three new rides from Losi. The XXX-SCB is back, now equipped with brushless power and Active Vehicle Control. For big-buggy action, the 8IGHT-E RTR is also brushless and AVC-equipped, with 4-pole power. The Micro SCTE looks big without a scale reference, but at 1/24 scale, it’s about 8″ long–perfect for indoor […]

Traxxas Brings Real Engine Sound to Electric RC with “On Board Audio”

Traxxas Brings Real Engine Sound to Electric RC with “On Board Audio”

When it comes to sheer RPM and torque, electric power is king. But when it comes to sounding powerful, electric power barely rattles the eardrums–“whiiirrrr” is all you get. However, that quiet does make it possible to add any sound you like over the hum of the electric motor, which is what Traxxas has done […]

Curt Poucket’s Miz-Bee-Havin

Curt Poucket’s Miz-Bee-Havin

Curt’s Reader’s Ride build began with a Crawford Barbarian chassis that he had power coated black with yellow cross braces and links. He custom-built swaybars and finished them with the same yellow powder coating to match the links and braces. The axles are borrowed from an Axial Wraith and equipped with a STRC steering link. […]
