Heavy Hauler – Tamiya Volvo FH16 Globetrotter 750  6×4 Timber Truck

Heavy Hauler – Tamiya Volvo FH16 Globetrotter 750 6×4 Timber Truck

Tamiya’s well known worldwide for producing some of the highest quality and detailed models so it’s no surprise to see them taking what they learned in the model scene and applying it to RC cars. The Tamiya Tractor Truck series has many big rigs that are some of the most well detailed vehicles in their […]

FF Power: Tamiya FF03 Honda Civic Type-R R3

Let’s talk real cars for a minute. I’ve been a car guy all my life. I’ve owned everything from a 1961 Lincoln Continental (yes, the lead sled with the suicide doors) through a top of the line BMW 7-Series replete with heated and ventilated massage seats with foot rests (yes, they’re worth it, especially on […]

Land Burner: This Tamiya Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 Is Ready To Roll

Those familiar with Tamiya’s GF-01 wheelie popping four-wheel drive chassis will most certainly tell you that it’s a fun vehicle to drive. When combined with the classic looks of the iconic Toyota Land Cruiser 40 (FJ40), the combination is really hard to beat. RCCA’s Associate Publisher, Leigh Guarnieri felt that the Tamiya FJ40 had more […]

Maxxed Out: We Deck Out Our Traxxas Maxx Even Further

After a few months of wrecking everything in its path, our Incredible Hulk green Traxxas Maxx has seen more than its share of crashes, bashes, rollovers and hard landings – many times even on its roof. This virtually indestructible monster truck is whiplash fast and has been tons of fun. As well as it performs […]

SoCal Cruising: Building Tamiya’s Beautifully  Detailed VW Karmann Ghia

SoCal Cruising: Building Tamiya’s Beautifully Detailed VW Karmann Ghia

There’s always something really satisfying about getting a fresh build-it-yourself kit from Tamiya. I know for me it’s the level of detail that Tamiya goes to when recreating their true-to-life scale replicas, even in RC form. It’s not a surprise that every kit looks the part, considering Tamiya’s many years as a scale model manufacturer, […]

With the introduction of their newest ground-up designed RTR kit, the Kaiju 1/8 6S Monster Truck, they’re upping their game and truly stepping into the realm […]

This probably isn’t the first time you are seeing the Mercedes Benz G500, whether it was in person mobbing down suburban streets, or maybe in some high-budget spy movie. Regardless where you first crossed paths with this iconic vehicle, it is hard not to want one. Since the real G500 has a high six-figure price […]
Redcat Racing’s Gen8 PACK:  The Base For The Perfect Trail Build

Redcat Racing’s Gen8 PACK: The Base For The Perfect Trail Build

I really enjoy charging up my trail trucks and heading to the local park for a nice walk and occasional stop to climb over some rocks. I also enjoy putting something together that looks like something you may see in the full-size world. So when I get the opportunity to do anything with a trail […]

Ultimate Scale Machine – Building Up The Traxxas  Unlimited Desert Racer

Ultimate Scale Machine – Building Up The Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer

I am a big fan of trophy trucks. They’re awesome vehicles that are made from nothing, they have lots of suspension travel and they’re packed full of horsepower. Through the years I’ve messed around with making one of my own, then we started to see some trucks that had the feel of trophy trucks so […]

Purple Reign – Leigh Guarnieri’s Team Associated Reflex DB10 Drag Nova

Every build has a backstory; maybe it’s inspired by a real car that the builder saw on a racetrack once or perhaps it’s built to replicate a dream car. The backstory can be as fascinating as the build itself sometimes. As for the car you’re looking at now, the story begins a long time ago. […]

Amazing RC: Batman’s Giant-Scale Movie Miniatures

Amazing RC: Batman’s Giant-Scale Movie Miniatures

While computer-generated effects are the go-to technique for anything remotely fantastic in most of today’s movies, director Christopher Nolan remains a steadfast believer in practical effects–in other words, putting real things in front of a camera. That includes full-size “Tumblers” for his Batman trilogy, but not all the Tumbler shots were achieved in full-scale. There’s […]
Best RTR Trail Truck? We Tested The Big Three to Find Out.

Best RTR Trail Truck? We Tested The Big Three to Find Out.

“What trail truck should I get?” It’s still the number one “help me pick a thing” question we get, and the field of choices is larger than ever. Three trucks remain firmly in place as the most likely picks: Axial SCX10 II, Traxxas TRX-4, and Vaterra Ascender. With new versions of all three models now […]
