Kart-Cross Is Basically Full-Size RC Racing [VIDEO]

Kart-Cross Is Basically Full-Size RC Racing [VIDEO]

Kart Cross (or Crosskart, according to Wikipedia) is basically off-road go-kart racing, with displacement classes from 125 to 650cc. Fun for sure, but what got our attention was how much these little dirt-slingers look like 80s-era RC buggies you can actually get in and drive! Plenty of action below, and lots more if you want to […]
Sneak Peek: Project Traxxas Bigfoot 4×4 [VIDEO]

Sneak Peek: Project Traxxas Bigfoot 4×4 [VIDEO]

I was really excited when Traxxas released the Bigfoot monster truck based on the Stampede. It’s a great looking truck and lots of fun but I thought it would be awesome to have the great Bigfoot look but with the grip of 4WD. That’s why I built this project Traxxas Bigfoot 4×4 for the June […]

What’s the best kind of grease for metal gears? Do I need special grease if my truck is going to be in mud and water?   Before we get to the best grease, let’s talk about the worst grease for metal gears, and that’s “no grease.” At the very least, use the grease supplied with […]

Make your car dirty! We show you how.

[From our March 2017 issue] It’s easy to get an RC car or truck dirty—just drive it! But if you want a realistically dirtied-up look that’s in scale with your machine (and won’t wash off), you’ll need to do more than just skip cleaning your car. With the easy techniques that follow, you can simulate dirt realistically […]

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 […]

We have the new Losi Rock Rey!

I was pretty excited about the new Losi Rock Rey when it was announced a few weeks ago and now I finally have my hands on it. It looked great in the photos on the Losi website but it’s even more impressive in person. I’m working on a full review for the June issue but […]
