The  Monster Returns – A long-term review of the  Redcat Kaiju 1/8 Monster Truck

The Monster Returns – A long-term review of the Redcat Kaiju 1/8 Monster Truck

About six months ago we reviewed one of Redcat’s newest releases, the Kaiju 1/8 scale Monster Truck. As soon as we got our hands on it, we put the truck through its paces, ultimately seeking to test the Kaiju’s durability limits and true potential. After wrapping up our initial review, we were quite impressed with […]

Living The Dream – A Visit To HobbyTown Westminster

It all began in 1986 with the Tamiya Hornet. My dad and I spent the entire weekend building the car and painting the body. A friend of mine had just built the Grasshopper and I was so excited to see how fast my car would go with its larger 540 motor. My friends and I […]

Hoonagain – Fresh Squeezed RC’s Full-Custom  Kyosho Fazer Mk2 Hoonigan Hoonitruck

Hoonagain – Fresh Squeezed RC’s Full-Custom Kyosho Fazer Mk2 Hoonigan Hoonitruck

Sourced twin turbo V6, vaporizing its giant 20-inch diameter tires immediately into billowing smoke clouds, all while doing it Hoonigan style. It was quite a big deal in the automotive world. The trickle down effect from real world automotive creations to RC replicas is real. It’s what has inspired every RC ever and it’s what […]

Controlled Chaos – Terraforming Terrain With The Traxxas X-Maxx

In this decade or the next, there’s a good chance that humankind will return to the moon and may even visit the red planet, Mars. We hope that when these brave explorers set out on their mission, that they bring with themselves a Traxxas X-Maxx along for the ride. If they knew what we learned […]

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, […]

Luxury for All

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

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 […]
