70s Sheetmetal for Short Course: Parma 71 Muscle Baja SC

70s Sheetmetal for Short Course: Parma 71 Muscle Baja SC

Parma’s got a bunch of different options for styling out your short-course truck as something other than a short-course truck. You can go with a dune buggy, a 50s look, a classic panel truck, or vintage muscle–like this latest addition, the ’71 Muscle Baja SC. Parma does a good job of stretching the lines to fit […]

Toy-Towing Ford 4X4: Anthony Santoianni’s Tamiya F-350 High-Lift

Here’s a scene we can definitely get into. Road trip to the trail in the F-350, do a little trail riding, a little RC crawling (see the tiny truck between the “big” truck’s wheels?), build a campfire… This Reader’s Ride comes from Anthony Santoianni of Montreal, Canada, and his Tamiya Ford F-350 High Lift is definitely looking […]

Vaterra Adds Corvette Z51 Stingray to V100-S Lineup

Vaterra Adds Corvette Z51 Stingray to V100-S Lineup

We’re already fans of Vaterra’s rugged V100-S, but we like it even more dressed up as a the new Stingray. Lots of great detail here, and the car looks killer on the move–play the video, you’ll see. Looks like the standard V100-S specs under the sleek new shell, so we’re talking full-time shaft-driven 4WD with […]

Axial Teases “Yeti,” New 1/10 4WD Car

Axial Teases “Yeti,” New 1/10 4WD Car

Sorry gang, this is all we have for you on Axial‘s upcoming Yeti. Other than revealing it’s a “1/10th Scale Electric 4WD RTR,” Axial is keeping the details under wraps on the new ride. Our guess is it’s King of the Hammers-style machine that will fill the high-speed performance void left by the EXO Terra. […]
