After you watch BJ Baldwin shred the city on a Sasquatch hunt, it’s safe to say you’re really going to want to jump a truck. Thankfully, we RC guys can do just that. Although technically, nothing’s stopping you from jumping your full-size truck, but you’ll probably only be able to it once. And then call [...]
From TLR: The story of the 8IGHT platform is the story of a champion – one that encompasses multiple ROAR national titles in addition to major wins on the international stage. The 8IGHT 4.0 buggy builds on this championship-winning heritage with updates to the suspension geometry and drivetrain layout that make it both easier [...]
We’ve shared Julian Groves’ videos of New Zealand dirt oval action before, and we’ll probably do it again—these quarter-scale left-turners or awesome! We’ve got three Kiwi-flavored clips for you below with Sprinter, Modified, and Midget action.

The list of drivers who have earned an IFMAR Off-Road Worlds title is a who’s-who of RC’s top pros, but sometimes a rookie pro makes the leap into the limelight to best the established top guns. This year, that driver is Team Associated’s Spencer Rivkin, who shocked the racing scene by taking the 2015 2WD [...]
About the only thing that gives away the scale of Karl Sandvik’s Chevy 3500 Dually work truck is the size of the hex heads on the custom steel frame rails! We’re suckers for a truck that nearly suckers us! Karl tells us he chopped up a Tamiya CC-01 front suspension for it, widening the suspension [...]
