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

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

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 […]
Tamiya Konghead 6X6 “F1 Truck” [PROJECT BUILD]

Tamiya Konghead 6X6 “F1 Truck” [PROJECT BUILD]

Tamiya is known worldwide for its wild RC rides. Some are designed with track-worthiness in mind, and some are just flights of fancy, the result of too much caffeine and maybe not enough sleep. The Konghead and its brother The King Yellow may be the latter. With 6-wheel drive, optional 4-wheel steering, and monster truck […]

Tamiya CC-01 Baja VeeDub with V-8 Muscle  – RC Project

Tamiya CC-01 Baja VeeDub with V-8 Muscle – RC Project

When it comes to Baja Bugs, you either think they’re awesome or you’re wrong. I’m definitely not in the “wrong” group, and was happy when the opportunity came to finally build a Baja Bug of my own that wasn’t just a short-course truck dressed up in a Beetle body. The easiest way to get down […]

RC Review: HPI Hoonicorn

We get behind the wheel of Ken Block’s mythical machine. A great thing about RC is that you can get behind the wheel of some of the coolest cars on the planet. OK, so it’s not the real deal, but looks the part and provides a smaller-scale version of the speed and capabilities that make […]

RC Review: Traxxas TRX-4 Tactical

RC Review: Traxxas TRX-4 Tactical

Was there any doubt Traxxas would follow up the debut of the TRX-4’s Land Rover Defender by releasing the platform with other body and wheel combos? No. Would anyone have guessed the second version of Traxxas’ breakthrough trail machine would be an urban-camo’d tactical rig that looks as ready for riot control as it does […]
RC Reviews: AARMA GRANITE 4X4

RC Reviews: AARMA GRANITE 4X4

Even the most affordable hobby-grade trucks aren’t what you’d call “cheap,” and that goes double if you want to make the leap to a 4WD machine. And so, we’re pretty intrigued by Arrma’s new Granite 4X4. For less than $250, Arrma lets you hit the dirt with an all-new design that includes all the running […]

RC Review: Losi Tenacity SCT

The TEN 4WD short-course truck is a top-shelf performer as a competition machine under the TLR (Team Losi Racing) banner and also hits the dirt as an RTR wearing the Losi logo. The TEN series’ racing pedigree makes all the TEN models high-performance handlers, whether you prefer to go DIY or RTR. Losi’s latest ready-to-run […]

RC Review: RC4WD Trail Finder 2 Blazer

The Trail Finder 2 is one of RC4WD’s most popular vehicles, and there are a few versions of the platform to choose from. You can get it as a kit, RTR, long wheelbase, and short wheelbase, and they all come with the Mojave II body. RC4WD decided to switch things up a bit and offer […]

Traxxas  2017 Ford F-150  Raptor [ RC Review ]

Traxxas 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor [ RC Review ]

“High-performance factory pickup truck.” What truck did that phrase make you think of? Yeah, it was a Ford F-150 Raptor, for sure. And why not—we’re talking a 450hp twin-turbo engine, Fox Racing shocks, 10-speed gearbox, and fat-fendered styling more aggressive than a junkyard dog guarding a plate of bacon. To duplicate the Raptor in RC […]
Tamiya Bullhead Classic Plastic [RC Review]

Tamiya Bullhead Classic Plastic [RC Review]

In 1987, Tamiya introduced the coolest monster truck of the time, and it was called the “Clod Buster.” It featured dual motors, eight shocks, large tires, and a scale Chevy pickup truck body. In 1990, that awesome platform was used to make one of the most unique monster trucks to ever come out of the […]
