RC Review: RC4WD Trail Finder 2 Blazer

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 […]
RC Reviews: Losi Super Baja Rey

RC Reviews: Losi Super Baja Rey

One-sixth scale is a magic place between 1/8 scale and 1/5 scale, where you get a vehicle that is more stable than 1/8 scale and it’s able to use standard batteries and reasonable power systems unlike larger and heavier 1/5-scale vehicles. Losi is embracing this new scale, and has blasted the popular Baja Rey with […]

Review: HPI Venture FJ Cruiser

Review: HPI Venture FJ Cruiser

“Finally,” right? The Venture FJ took the long way to the trail, but now that HPI’s first-ever dedicated 4X4 trail-truck platform is officially released to the wild, it’s the rig everyone wants to see. With a high bar set by the established Traxxas, Vaterra, RC4WD, and Axial models, the Venture needs to be a substantially […]
TESTED: Pro-Line Ultra  Reservoir Shock  Caps for Traxxas X-Maxx [REVIEW]

TESTED: Pro-Line Ultra Reservoir Shock Caps for Traxxas X-Maxx [REVIEW]

Regular readers will recall that we reviewed Pro-Line’s eye-popping Ultra Reservoir Shocks for scale trucks back in the April 2017 issue, and found the reservoir tech to be as functional as it is stylish. Since then, the Pro-Line CNC machines haven’t slowed down, and now there’s a second member of the Ultra Reservoir family: the […]

REVIEWED: KO Propo EX-RR [Radio Test]

REVIEWED: KO Propo EX-RR [Radio Test]

Premium control for precise, pro-grade performance. Ask even casual RC fans to name an all-time great racer, and you can bet they’ve heard of Masami Hirosaka. He’s a 14-time IFMAR World Champion with titles for 2WD and 4WD electric off-road and 1/12 and 1/10 on-road, and drives faster with toes than most of us can […]
Die Cast X Review: Auto World 1971 Dodge Charger R/T

Die Cast X Review: Auto World 1971 Dodge Charger R/T

Imagine the drama brewing in the halls of Chrysler HQ as product planners contemplated redesigning the legendary ‘68-70 Dodge Charger. That model with its now iconic Coke-bottle shape was an instant hit, raved over by reviewers and stetting and resetting sales records in its first two years. But the Detroit standard product cycle at the […]

$15 Walmart Hyper Tough Power Driver Review – Good For RC?

$15 Walmart Hyper Tough Power Driver Review – Good For RC?

For $15, this power driver isn’t too shabby. It’s not likely to hold up for day-in, day-out use in the hands of a pro wrencher, but for occasional use when you’ve got a bunch of screws to install (like when assembling beadlocks), it’s definitely handy. But be warned: even on the clutch’s “softest” setting, you […]
Traxxas DCB M41 Widebody [REVIEW]

Traxxas DCB M41 Widebody [REVIEW]

As “the fastest name in radio control,” Traxxas is best known for high speed on four wheels, but the brand also gets down on the water with some of the highest-performance machines on the market. The Spartan set the benchmark for RTR speed with a 6S-rated power system and 50mph at full tilt, and Traxxas’ latest water-boiler […]
