A True Monster – Putting Redcat’s  Kaiju 6S Beast to the Test

A True Monster – Putting Redcat’s Kaiju 6S Beast to the Test

Redcat has been around for many years now and are mostly known for offering kits towards the entry level hobby-grade side of RC but their new direction changes that. 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 […]

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

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

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

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

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 […]
