Like any major event, tires are big deal and this National was subject to some unusual problems that only occurred as qualifying got under way. Sweep EXP EVO-R 36 were the premounted tires chosen for the event and have a history of performance at the facility, but this time things were a little different. With [...]
You can’t really appreciate what’s going on as your trail machine does its terrain-grabbing stuff until you see it in slow motion. Case in point: this Wraith, which appears to be on the way to a wresting match, as it rips rubble looking for grip. Pretty sure that’s John Cena behind the wheel, who isn’t [...]
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 [...]

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.

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? Raceline revolver wheels and two new tire options are the standouts, but all this stuff is pretty rad–who doesn’t appreciate a nice anodized rod end? Official detaiils follow the pics. From RC4WD: Trail Rider 1.9 Offroad Scale Tires Specifications: Advanced X2 SS [...]
The guys at Tekin teased us a bit at the ROAR Electric Off-Road Nationals and gave us a quick glimps of their new motor and now it’s heading to hobby shop shelves. 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. [...]
