Review: RISE Vusion Extreme FPV Race Pack

Review: RISE Vusion Extreme FPV Race Pack

FPV Race Drone for the Beginner I won’t lie when I say that I’ve been eagerly eyeballing the fast-growing Drone market. I’ve raced some fast cars but taking my skills to the air, well, my biggest fear with jumping into drones is my shear lack of successful flights; I don’t want to spend time and money on a rad race …

Review: Traxxas 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor

Review: Traxxas 2017 Ford Raptor Replica

Replicating a 450HP Monster in 1:10 Scale My wife and I have this long standing joke about what we would buy should we ever win the lottery. Her list isn’t all that long; a nice house with a large, kick-ass kitchen and a nice car to drive – she really digs the Subaru Outback 3.6R Touring. I’ve got similar tastes; …

Review: Tamiya Limited Edition Porsche Turbo RSR Type 934

Taking it to the Streets – J√§germeister-Style! Back in 1976, Tamiya released their first RC model kit – the Vaillant Porsche 934. This kit was a huge success and vaulted Tamiya to the top rung of the ladder for super-scale, realistic RC models. I distinctly remember seeing this kit at the hobby shop and asking my dad for it for …

Review: Vision Racing Products 1:10 Ultra Shock Stand

Review: Vision Racing Products Ultra Offroad Shock Stand

Simple Design, High-Tech Look! One of the things I like most about RC is building the cars. I love the technical aspect of it, the hands-on work it takes and the progression to the final product. That being said, I have to admit that I’m not a fan when it comes to assembling the shocks; I’m not sure what it …

Review: ProTek RC Foldable Aluminum LED Pit Light

Review: ProTek RC Foldable LED Pit Light

The Perfect LED Solution to Any Pit Space If you’re an indoor racer, I’m sure you can agree that not all pit spaces are equal when it comes to light. Sometimes you’re lucky and secure a spot under a high-hanging fluorescent, but is that really enough? If your eyes are whacked out like mine it’s not and having a separate …

Review: Team Associated SC28 1:28 Scale Short Course Truck

Time For Some Teeny Tiny Short Course Fun While we see alot of larger rides coming from their camp, Team Associated is certainly no stranger to small scale vehicles; they set the bar pretty high awhile back with the 4WD RC18 series of hot rods. Even today, those mighty minis can be found in the hands of everyone from first-timers …

Review: Maxline RC Closed-Cell Foam Car Stands

Keeping Your Cars Elevated in Style One item every RCer needs is some sort of car stand to keep your ride elevated while you’re doing maintenance, rebuilding shocks or saucing your tires. Over my years I’ve seen quite a few different car stand designs; a 2×4 block of wood, small, clear Tupperware boxes and even used RC tires. Those all …

Review: Bat-Safe Battery Charging Box

Review: Bat-Safe Battery Charging Box

The Ultimate LiPo Battery Charging / Storage Solution I’ve been into RC for a long time and have certainly charged my fair share of battery packs, but I’ll be the first to admit that LiPo batteries scare me just a little bit. Case in point; a couple years ago while I was working on one of my F1 cars on …

BIGFOOT – The One That Started It All How many of you remember the original BIGFOOT Monster Truck? I do … the first time it hit the scene back in 1979 it was something no one had seen before!
