If this doesn’t press your “I want to do that” button, then RC just isn’t for you. It’ll take one helluva plane ticket (the track is in New Zealand), but we definitely want to hit this oval for some gas-powered go-left action. Who can resist big ol’ weed-eater-powered Sprinters slinging good old-fashioned dirt?
I always love it when Axial introduces a kit version of a vehicle that was only available in RTR form before. I enjoy building and with these kits you get parts that were option parts for the RTR version and a vehicle that is slightly better performance wise and a little more durable. The latest [...]
RPM is venturing further into the trail and crawler scene, which is good news since many machines could use the durability of RPM’s indestructible parts. These new shock hoops for the SCX10 are not just a stock replacement deal, instead they offer several mounting positions for the shocks to change shock angle and raise and [...]
An RC car traveling 100mph is pretty impressive, but 100mph on a slot-car track is downright insane. High-downforce “wing cars” can top 110mph, as (barely) seen here competing at the European Championship in Helsinki, Finland from a few years back. So, you could say these cars are fast to the Finnish line. Fast-forward to 0:55 [...]

Included is a 2.4 GHz 2-channel radio system and 390 brushed motor to deliver speeds over 15mph. With fully independent suspension, and coil-over friction damper shocks, this truggy is ready to take on some rough [...]
Racing these days is getting more and more technical with setup being crucial to performance. JConcepts knows racing and have made a pretty trick ride height gauge for those looking to take their setup to the next level. Available in Blue and Black, these billet aluminum gauges are made to be accurate and have tight [...]
Hot on the heels of Kyosho’s Scorpion re-release is the Tomahawk, another of the brand’s iconic 80s buggies. The trim, wingless body still looks great, and the hardware underneath has the right vintage look but is built to improved specs. As it did back in the day, the Tomahawk borrows from the Scorpion with its [...]
As nitro-engine starting systems go, pull-starters are definitely the least desirable option. On the plus side, they’re cheap; on the down side, well, everything else. They aren’t reliable, they’re not comfortable to use, and if you’ve ever taken one apart, you know what a hassle it can be to get the spring-genie back into the [...]
