RC4WD Trail Finder 2 Review

Review – RC4WD Trail Finder 2 Truck Kit w/ Mojave Body

THE RC4WD Trail Finder 2 Truck Kit w/ Mojave Body ReviewRC4WD has flown under a lot of peoples radar. On the crawling/scaler scene they are very well known, but a whole lot of normal bashers have not even heard of them, let alone know what kind of product they put out, or even that they put out entire kits.

Axial AX10 Deadbolt

Review – Axial AX10 Deadbolt RTR

THE Axial Deadbolt AX10 RTR ReviewAxial has been kicking some major butt, their products are solid, their scale looks turn heads, and they have brought rc crawling (and scaling) from obscurity.

Review - Vaterra Swift Justice 2012 CHP Chevrolet Camar…

THE Vaterra Swift Justice 2012 CHP Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 from Horizon Hobby ReviewWhile Vaterra might be relatively new to the marketplace, they are certainly making a splash with their extremely scale looking rc cars. Their latest on-road machine, the 2012 CHP Camaro ZL1 is heavy on scale detailing at a moderate price point. Does the chassis drive well? Is the [...]

Review – Pro-Line PRO-2 Short Course Truck Kit

THE Pro-Line PRO-2 Short Course Truck Kit ReviewAfter 30 long years the crew over at Pro-Line decided to try their hand at the full on kit game.

Futaba 4PLS Review

Review – Futaba 4PLS (4PL Super) S-FHSS Telemetry Radio

THE Futaba 4PLS (4PL Super) S-FHSS Telemetry Radio ReviewThe venerable Futaba 4PL was perhaps the best radio system ever made for the bashing market. Well it’s deceased now, replaced by a newer model, the 4PLS (Super). Does the 4PLS live up to the high expectations? Being Futaba’s first surface radio with telemetry, did they get it right? Can it take [...]

Heli-Max Axe 100 SSL Brushless Helicopter Review

Heli-Max Axe 100 SSL Brushless Helicopter ReviewWhen we saw the original press release for the Heli-Max Axe 100 SSL, we were sort of blown away by what they were claiming, and what you could get for the price. When it comes to heli’s, we haven’t really done much in the way of reviews except for some ‘dual blade’ stuff, [...]

Duratrax Nissan GT-R Review

Review – Duratrax Nissan GT-R Nitro RTR Review

THE Duratrax Nissan GT-R Nitro RTR ReviewIt is no secret I hate nitro, so I found it quite “interesting” that Brian would drop a nitro car on my desk for review (then he RAN out of my office).
