That’s what it looks like to us, anyway. The teaser clip reveals plenty of calling cards for the 707hp Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and a 1968-70 Charger. The video has engine sounds, which could mean the cars have simulated engine-sound systems. Or, Kyosho is just using the sound as ear candy for the video. Also [...]
We need a full-on truck-vs-boat oval race, please get on this Traxxas. Also would like to see a follow-up video where they shoot a Spartan across the pavement to drag race the Slash. It wouldn’t look as cool, but hey, fair’s fair.
Lots of new gear here from RC4WD–don’t these guys ever take a break?

This clip has been making the rounds, and the concept sounds awesome–FMX rider and Red Bull Fighter Edgar Torrenteras on his Yamaha YZ 250 versus 2012 IFMAR Champ Robert Battlle and his Mugen MBX-7R! As for the actual action, I’m left wishing the track was bigger so both guys could open up a little more [...]
Ever tried mounting or removing a hard plastic drift tire? It’s a real party. Firebrand’s new Impaler tool gets the job done with good ol’ mechanical leverage. Just crank the handle until the tire pops on (if you’re mounting it) or the rim pops out (if you’re removing the tire). Works with rubber tires too. [...]
