Axialfest 2018: Scale Off-Road’s Ultimate Event

Axial SCX10-based Toyota Half-Track is All Awesome [READER’S RIDE]

Axial SCX10-based Toyota Half-Track is All Awesome [READER’S RIDE]

Toyota actually built a prototype half-track and Matthew Kett’s ultra-realistic Axial-based build recreates it amazingly well. It took him 8 months to piece together, starting with an SCX10. He salvaged the front and rear axles, transmission, and chassis rails, and spliced them with a Heng Long Walker Bulldog 1:16 RC tank. He tells us the […]

RC4WD TF2 Blackfoot Hybrid [READER’S RIDE]

RC4WD TF2 Blackfoot Hybrid [READER’S RIDE]

Jonathan Mathews’ TF2 is deceptively subtle, but the closer you look the cooler this truck gets. To begin with, there’s the Tamiya Blackfoot body. Look closer and you’ll see that this is an extended cab Ford — something Tamiya never made. So Jonathan and his buddy Jim (who runs a body shop) spliced together two […]

Tamiya Jimny Crawler by Daniel Siegl [READER’S RIDE]

Daniel Siegl likes a challenge. When Daniel realized that his trip to the US from his native Austria would perfectly coincide with the 5th Annual Recon G6 Birthday Bash, held at Moon Rocks in Reno, NV, he decided to put a truck together to compete. But rather than go with a conventional crawler, he decided […]

Kev’s Bench: Axial Yeti XL Build, DONE

I just wrapped up a how-to on building the Axial Yeti XL kit for the June issue of Radio Control Car Action. It’s a fun build and I highly suggest that you have plenty of room to get through it. The parts for this bad boy are pretty large. While you’re waiting for the issue […]
