Buggies and trucks – see everything that hits the dirt


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 […]

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

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 […]

Kyosho has another re-release on the way, as these shots from the Tokyo hobby show (via hobbymedia.it) reveal. The original 1983 Beetle was based on the Scorpion, which makes it fitting that a Beetle re-release would follow the successful Scorpion re-release.
