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 […]
A Golden Oldie Reborn

A Golden Oldie Reborn

When the Axial SCX10 III was released, Jeremy figured it was high time he did his first RC Jeep build. He has a thing for unique and unusual paint themes so he chose the classic Jeep Golden Eagle to re-create on his modern 4-door JL. The Eagle and Graphics are painted from the inside with […]

Chevy Blazer  Wheel-Stander

Chevy Blazer Wheel-Stander

Matt has sent us pix of several of his custom vintage dragsters, but this one is designed to put on a show like few others. Patterned after the exhibition dragsters of the ‘60s and ‘70s this square-body Blazer replaces its front-mounted small block with a blown alcohol big block hung way out back. That plus […]
Root Beer Float

Root Beer Float

John wanted to refresh his Vaterra Twin Hammers to make it look totally different. He found a Tamiya bug body on eBay and a new bare chassis of some generic brand similar car and robbed the lime green roll cage and rear end support rods from that. He also found some slightly brown-toned Austar aluminum […]

Trail Honcho Backyard Hero

Trail Honcho Backyard Hero

Sumner tells us he got his first Axial SCX 10 II Trail Honcho in 2018 and loved every single minute with it. It inspired him to build a crawling course in his backyard among the natural rocks, including suspension bridge over a little pond, ramps and a hill climb. That’s where he exercises this new […]
Monster  Energy CR12

Monster Energy CR12

David tells us he was looking for a new project and came across a CR12 chassis sitting in his hobby room with no body, wheels, tires or electronics collecting dust, along with a Yeti Jr body. I he noted that the wheelbases were a perfect match but the CR12’s chassis rails were too long so […]

RC4WD Heavy Chevy

RC4WD Heavy Chevy

From the outset Jeffery wanted his project to look like a proper ‘80s-era big Chevy truck and he worked on it for a year to bring it about. The fundamentals are RC4WD’s long-wheelbase chassis and Chevy K10 cab with a mix of Traxxas and other electronics. The only 3D-printed piece is the big block Chevy […]
Klean K5

Klean K5

Pedar’s Blazer started out as an Axial Dingo years ago, but almost nothing but the frame rails remain. Power comes from an RC4WD 35T motor controlled by an Axial AE2 and powered by a Turnigy 3S Lipo. He went with SSD axles, rear hubs, and scale transmission. RC4WD supplied the Warn manual-locking front hubs, deep-dish […]
