I’ve been building modified Tamiya Clod Busters for years and this Novak-powered project from the May 2008 issue is one of my favorites. Back in 2008, brushless power was just starting to take over and getting two power systems to work itogether was a little tricky. I just loved the look of this truck when [...]
Kyosho has taken the popular Blizzard platform and made some revisions before releasing it as the Blizzard FR. This sucker features twin 370 size motors, large tracks, dual speed controls and best of all a working snow plow. We can’t wait to get our hands on this awesome ride.

With features like a machined aluminum can, anodized end bell, dual-plug sensor wire harness and high RPM precision bearings you can’t go wrong. [...]
