Atomic Aluminum Wheels for the Kyosho Mini-z Moto – Review

I received a set of Atomic’s new wheels for the Mini-Z Moto. I hadn’t put much thought around it but I realized that these are in fact aluminum wheels while the stock Mini-z Moto wheels are cast out of a heavier metal. On a Mini-Z, switching to an aluminum wheel you rarely end up saving weight. Would the weight savings [...]

Kyosho DBX VE 2.0 Review

The Kyosho DBX VE 2.0 Review  In my last review I mentioned that I didn’t mind handing over my R/C cars to just about anyone.  This time, it wasn’t because I was worried about the car.  I just plain forgot to offer because I was having too much fun with it? So what is a 1:10th scale buggy with 1:8th scale [...]

The review of the Kyosho DBX VE 2.0 buggy has begun but until it’s done, this unboxing should hold you over.  I know it isn’t a short course but on paper, the closest thing I want to compare this to on “features for the price” is the Traxxas Slash 4×4.  Given that, at $369.99 street it appears it’ll be a [...]

RCX 2012 – Airtronics

Airtronics newest entry level radio that is great for any basher, the MX-V.  These value 2.4ghz radios always catch my attention because at times, you get some serious bang for the buck without the cost of the higher end units.  Compatibility is always important within a line (receivers that work with all the FHSS surface radios within the family) so [...]
