The “motocross” course included four LandWave jumps that kept drivers in the air 
as much as they were on the ground.

Flying High at the LandWave Challenge

LandWave, maker of modular plastic ramps as seen in RC Car Action, put on the first-annual LandWave Challenge in Pioneer, Ohio, which is also home to the company headquarters. As you might expect, the focus was on jumping, with a “motocross course” and a long-jump competition, all using the brand’s unique stacking, multi-configuration ramps. “I […]
Tamiya Konghead 6X6 “F1 Truck” [PROJECT BUILD]

Tamiya Konghead 6X6 “F1 Truck” [PROJECT BUILD]

Tamiya is known worldwide for its wild RC rides. Some are designed with track-worthiness in mind, and some are just flights of fancy, the result of too much caffeine and maybe not enough sleep. The Konghead and its brother The King Yellow may be the latter. With 6-wheel drive, optional 4-wheel steering, and monster truck […]

Tamiya CC-01 Baja VeeDub with V-8 Muscle  – RC Project

Tamiya CC-01 Baja VeeDub with V-8 Muscle – RC Project

When it comes to Baja Bugs, you either think they’re awesome or you’re wrong. I’m definitely not in the “wrong” group, and was happy when the opportunity came to finally build a Baja Bug of my own that wasn’t just a short-course truck dressed up in a Beetle body. The easiest way to get down […]
PROJECT BUILD: Losi Baja Rey

PROJECT BUILD: Losi Baja Rey

I reviewed the Losi Baja Rey in the October 2016 issue of RC Car Action, and overall I had a great experience. It has a great top speed, AVC does a wonderful job of smoothing out the ride, and the suspension soaks up bumps and jumps like a champ. I’ve always been lukewarm, however, about […]

RC Review: Losi Tenacity SCT

RC Review: Losi Tenacity SCT

The TEN 4WD short-course truck is a top-shelf performer as a competition machine under the TLR (Team Losi Racing) banner and also hits the dirt as an RTR wearing the Losi logo. The TEN series’ racing pedigree makes all the TEN models high-performance handlers, whether you prefer to go DIY or RTR. Losi’s latest ready-to-run […]
Traxxas  2017 Ford F-150  Raptor [ RC Review ]

Traxxas 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor [ RC Review ]

“High-performance factory pickup truck.” What truck did that phrase make you think of? Yeah, it was a Ford F-150 Raptor, for sure. And why not—we’re talking a 450hp twin-turbo engine, Fox Racing shocks, 10-speed gearbox, and fat-fendered styling more aggressive than a junkyard dog guarding a plate of bacon. To duplicate the Raptor in RC […]

TESTED: Pro-Line PRO-MT 4X4

Pro-Line is the undisputed body, tire, and wheel king, and also makes a heckuva a complete RC car—go look up our reviews of the PRO-2, PRO-2 SC, and PRO-MT 2WD models to refresh your memory. And now the gang in Banning, California, is at it again with a new PRO model: their first-ever 4X4 monster. […]

TESTED: Gmade GR-01 GOM Rock Buggy

Korean manufacturer Gmade has been on a bit of a tear lately. After chugging along in the 1.9-inch trail scene with variations of the Jeep-flavored Sawback, the brand turned up the heat with the Komodo, a new pickup truck–style rig that takes its cues from the Ford Super Duty—nice truck (see our review in the […]

HPI Venture FJ Cruiser [TESTED]

“Finally,” right? The Venture FJ took the long way to the trail, but now that HPI’s first-ever dedicated 4X4 trail-truck platform is officially released to the wild, it’s the rig everyone wants to see. With a high bar set by the established Traxxas, Vaterra, RC4WD, and Axial models, the Venture needs to be a substantially […]

Trail-Crusher Camaro [PROJECT]

Trail-Crusher Camaro [PROJECT]

I’m a fan of the Ascender, and I wanted to give mine the project treatment–but I wanted to do something a little different. I’ve always been a fan of “car-body” rigs and have been looking to build one of my own for a while, so this was the perfect chance. I also wanted to improve […]
