Outrageous Losi 5IVE-T Hydroplane Video

It is easy enough to find an rc hydroplane video on YouTube now days, however, what you don’t see is someone doing it with a 5th scaler. Thankfully our own Craig “The Uber Ramp Guy” Nelson decided it was high time that someone cranked up the power in a Losi 5IVE-T and went for it. Take a good look at [...]

Losi Mini WRC 1/5th Scale RTR Review

In the go big or go home category, the Losi Mini WRC 1/5th Scale RTR from Horizon Hobby certainly goes big! When we first heard that Losi was doing another 1/5th scale vehicle, we were glad to see they were going to do something a little different. The Losi 5IVE-T set the bar pretty high.

THE Team Durango DEX8T Truggy Review

Let’s face it, monster trucks and 8th scale truggies rule most bash areas. Their sheer size and power allow them to run amok over lesser bash-mobiles.

BEAST II 6×6…. “Behind the Build”

When you first open the box you are just astonished at the sheer magnitude of all the cool looking pieces and dozens of screw bags and then it hits you… Where am I gonna put all this stuff during the build?
