HPI Vorza Built for 100mph Blasts El Mirage

HPI Vorza Built for 100mph Blasts El Mirage

Vintage hot-rod style, modern 1/8 scale buggy tech and a heaping helping of brushless horsepower sounds like a fun speed-run recipe to us, and that’s exactly what you’ll find in this throwback to our “Electric Performance” issue.

This week, we go back in time to take a look at what most consider to be the first true RC monster truck: the Marui Big Bear. Back in 1984, this 1/12 scale crusher set the standard for a fat-tire stance with real monster proportions. the Big Bear is positively stone-age compared to today’s trucks, but […]

I’m talking about tire sauce. The origins of the use of tire sauce were probably first introduced in on-road and used on rubber and foam […]
Pro-Line Fuel Stick: See It First

Pro-Line Fuel Stick: See It First

Consider Pro-Line’s new Fuel Stick to be World Champion Approved: Ty Tessmann and his family team helped develop the high-tech filler-upper and used it to blast Nitrotane into his Hot Bodies D812 at the Worlds in Italy.

Pro-Line Now Has a Stadium Truck (sort of)

Pro-Line Now Has a Stadium Truck (sort of)

Pro-Line’s PRO-2 SC short course truck, PRO-2 Buggy and PRO-MT monster truck aren’t being officially joined by a stadium truck (that we assume would be called the PRO-ST), but this build from Pro-Line’s Holeshot blog sure looks factory. It’s based on a modded PRO-MT, and the conversion is easy. There’s no telling if this could […]

New O.S. Speed B2101 Engine & TrakPower 12v Engine Heater

A new engine from O.S. and an engine heater from TrakPower? Sounds like a two-fer post to us… If you want to run the engine that won the 2014 Worlds under the command of Ty Tessmann, this is it. “B” is for Buggy, and the B2101 is O.S.’ best off-road mill with features that include […]
