Flashback: Touring ’90s Style

When touring cars first blew up in the late ’90s, Tamiya’s Manta Ray–based TA01 and TA02 4WD cars were the order of the day.

Complete Nitro Power Get-Started Guide

RC cars and trucks look more realistic than ever, but until we’re all driving electric full-scale cars, battery-powered models are still highly unrealistic in the way they’re powered.

Turn two standard cab bodies into one sweet crew cab

When it comes to a scale appearance, there’s nothing better than an injection-molded body, which is often referred to as a “hard body.” The details are crisp, and it’s something that can never be matched by Lexan. There aren’t too many injection-molded bodies out there due to the cost required to produce them and the […]
