Mike’s Axial Vanquish SCX-based Unimog features custom made inner fenders and a detailed interior which even includes an FPV camera and a scale instrument panel.

Big Bertha

Big Bertha

“Big Bertha” is the extensively modded Traxxas TRX4 Bronco built by Jordan “Buck” Valenzuela of Buck’s Unique Customs. To get the look he chopped the shell and resurfaced it with a rust and chip effect. The most distinctive feature – and the one that gave Bertha her name – is probably the addition of Pro-Line […]

Unique Yota

Unique Yota

Dana was after a super scale rock crawler that looked like nothing else anybody had so he turned to Pimpin Crawlers. They constructed this custom 4-door Toyota Hilux using an RC4WD shell as well as the cage beneath it to fit Dana’s chosen Vanquish VS4-10 Pro chassis. To help it power over obstacles Dana chose […]
Down Under Fire Defender

Down Under Fire Defender

Wildfires were a huge disaster in Australia last year, and one of the types of vehicles used to combat them in rural areas for decades has been the Land Rover D130 utility truck. Aussie resident Cool Begg decided to build a scale D130 after seeing a NSW Rural Fire Service Truck parked down the road […]

Danger Ranger Drag Truck

Danger Ranger Drag Truck

The Artin Toys body that Adam’s Danger Ranger is based on is getting pretty hard to find in nice condition, and when he finally scored a good one he originally planned on making it into an off-road truck. But he received this roughly 1:6-scale body from a friend right around the time that Pro-Line’s Pomona […]
Mean Green Metric Toyota

Mean Green Metric Toyota

The modular Builder Series Metric truck body from Pro-Line was something that had been on Mike’s bucket list for a long time, but when the Element RC Independent Front Suspension kit came out and Knights Customs released its complete file pack on myminifactory.com he knew the time was right. He printed every aftermarket part and […]

Custom COE  Rat Rod

Custom COE Rat Rod

A few years back Wes reached out to his friend who runs the RC Everyday YouTube channel to see if he wanted to do a collaboration with his channel Wesmade Builds. They kicked around a few ideas and settled on a chopped Peterbilt Hot Rod. As you can imagine, they looked at a lot of […]
Classic Dodge Street Rod

Classic Dodge Street Rod

Brian tells us he admired many of the SCX10-based hot rod builds he’s seen online and in the pages of RC Car Action, but he noticed that most of them required advanced fabrication and machine tools. He didn’t have access to those so he used creativity and a lot of trial and error to build […]

Kryptonite Kamaro Funny Car

Kryptonite Kamaro Funny Car

The polished look of Matt’s classic Camaro funny car hides a tremendous amount of custom work to get it there. The body is a Lexan Parma Camaro that he carefully narrowed to get the proper proportions, and then he sprayed it in silver blue metallic enamel. That is hinged over a custom chassis Matt built […]
Flashback  Classic Clod

Flashback Classic Clod

Chris tells us he spent 3 years scouring eBay, Craigslist and Facebook to collect vintage parts to put together this build. He started with some near mint CCP gearboxes and stuffed them with new gears and bearings. The axle tubes, ladder bars and brackets, knuckles, and anti-rotation brackets are all vintage CCP parts as well […]

Jacked and Juiced – An Inspired Return To RC After Nearly 20 Years

Editor’s Note: We take an in-depth look at an RCCA Reader’s Ride and its owner. Peter Lundberg’s journey back into the RC hobby is a fascinating one, he shares his story with us directly. My RC journey started way back in 1996 with a pair of Tamiya classics—a Clod Buster and a Grasshopper. I spent […]
Big Scale –  True Scale

Big Scale – True Scale

Don thrives on taking RTR models and adding extra flair to make them look and drive better, then taking pro-grade photos of his creations. Here he started with a Losi Tenacity DB Pro with the Fox livery and began by upgrading the steering servo to a gold Savox SC-1257TG Super Speed titanium-gear digital unit attached […]
