Have you seen those 20 minute rc vehicle unboxing videos, where they don’t even touch or open the box for the first 10 minutes? Yea.. you know the ones.. we fall asleep too! Well we decided to add our own twist to this popular video genre.
For the record, we did not pick the Vaterra for any particular reason. We decided we were going to do a video like this, and the Glamis Uno was the lucky vehicle that showed up for review next. If you only watch one RC video today, this might be the one to watch! It’s only 3 minutes! Enjoy! (Don’t forget to watch it in HD!)
Tim and Cubby say this is the ultimate way to unbox a rc vehicle, though they already have plans for the next one. It will be interesting to see what vehicle shows up next. I think a 5th scale would of cracked his driveway!
PS: we really don’t recommend this is the way you unbox your vehicles!

Team Durango has a new electric truggy on the way called the DEX408T. They’ve been teasing it for a while as being an all new and uber piece of rc machinery. Information is still rather scarce on the truggy, but Team Durango recently posted their unboxing video to show all the goodness contained within the DEX408T box. Full details on the truggy should be released soon, until then take a look at the brief video to view all the pieces and parts that make up the DEX408T.

Here are some unboxing pictures of perhaps the best looking Duratrax to ever hit the market, the nitro powered Nissan GT-R. The Nissan is a 4wd on-road machine that has plenty of features like an .18 sized engine, a 2.4 GHz radio system, and a two speed transmission.

Look for our full BigSquidRC review to go live in the next week.
The latest vehicle to make its way into the line-up at Helion is the Invictus Monster Truck. It’s a 10th scale MT sporting large tires, waterproofing, and 4wd, the makings of a great bash machine. We first cracked the Helion box open during one of our live Google + shows and today we’ll be posting the unboxing pictures to give you a closer look at what’s inside.

Congratulations to TRAXXAS as their Slash 4×4 is the 2013 March Bash-ness Champion! Every year our readers never fail to surprise us on who they are going to vote for, and this year was no exception. We never would of guessed the finals would of been Traxxas vs Traxxas! I’m not sure who won our office pool this year because I know nobody saw that coming! To make it even crazier, it’s the closest voting finals we ever had! The polls say the Slash won by 1, but looking at the logs, it really won by 5. There were a few people who snuck in votes after the official closing time.
To help celebrate their win (I’m pretty sure Traxxas has been celebrating all week.. their odds were good) they have agreed to let us GIVE AWAY a brand new Traxxas Slash 4×4!
So here are the rules, you need to leave a COMMENT below with a valid email address! You should be over the age of 18, or get your parents to sign you up. You must live in the USA. We will only ship to a US address. Sorry guys, rules are rules. You must have your comment/official entry in by Friday night April 12th 11:59pm cst. We will then choose a RANDOM WINNER EMAIL from all valid entries! Good Luck!
Now we’re down to two. Traxxas fans are sure to be divided on this one. The Summit is a beast of a monster truck/rock crawler/thing. The Slash 4×4 is a beast of a… uh… 4×4 short course truck. Both are known for their bashing ability and durability. But only one can be the March Bash-ness 2013 Champion. So now is the time to get your vote on and pick which Traxxas truck is the better of the two bashers.
Voting for this final round will last until Tuesday, the 9th, 11:59 pm CDT. And then the winner will be crowned.
After a day off due to all of yesterday’s shenanigans we’re back today to conclude the final [2+2]. This part features a rematch of the first ever March Bash-ness final round. The big daddy HPI Savage Flux HP is taking on the venerable Traxxas Slash 4×4. What say you fans of bashing? Will the Savage make it’s second appearance in the final round? Or will we be facing an all Traxxas final of March (April?) Bash-ness? Now is the time to rally all your friends/troops/whatevers and get them to vote for your favorite truck.
Voting for this part of Round 3 will conclude on Thursday, the 4th, at 11:59ish pm CDT
Oh yeah, don’t forget, somebody will win something when this is all over.
Time is running out to get your votes in for Round 3 of March Bash-ness 2013. This round has the Vaterra Twin Hammers vs the Traxxas Summit and it’s way to close to call right now! So if you haven’t voted for your favorite, you better click THIS LINK to go vote now! Voting will close on Sunday, March 31st, at 11:59 pm Central time.
Here we go, now things are really starting to count. The final [number between three and five] is upon us. Some huge names are in this round. The newest kid on the block, Vaterra’s Twin Hammers made it, as did Traxxas’ Summit and Slash 4×4, and finally the HPI Savage Flux HP. So on one side of the bracket it’s come down to two hybrid crawler/bashers and on the other, two old gents that faced off once before in the final round of the first ever March Bash-ness. This time around it’s possible that we may have a Traxxas vs. Traxxas final. But the Savage Flux has a old and strong fan base and the Twin Hammers has a new and fervent following, so how will it shape up, nobody knows.
But one thing we do know is that March Bash-ness always ends with one of you walking away with a huge prize. But you can’t win if you don’t participate.
Voting for Round 3 will be split into two parts, the first part will be the Vaterra Twin Hammers vs Traxxas Summit match-up. Voting will end on Sunday, the 31st, at 11:59pm CDT. Round two will start soon after round 1 closes.
The Vaterra Twin Hammers has proven to be the most anticipated release of 2013. The combination of tough scale appearance and smart features seems to have everyone looking at the Twin Hammers. Below you’ll find all of our unboxing pictures for the Twin Hammers, from top to bottom, from front to rear, you can see the Twin Hammers in all its glory before we bash the daylights out of it. Check out the official Twin Hammers page on the Vaterra website for more information.
We have 29 unboxing pictures in all, including size comparison shots between the Twin Hammers, a 2.2 crawler, a Losi SCB, and an Axial EXO. Click the “read more” button to see all the pictures.
Round 2 of March Bash-ness 2013 continues now with the right side of the bracket. Sparring in this round are the small dog in the fight and one of the biggest. Arrma’s small in stature, but big in heart Granite is going straight up against, what is arguably, the granddaddy of bashing, the HPI Savage Flux HP. The other matchup features Traxxas’ insanely popular Slash 4×4 going up against Axial’s answer to everybody’s desire for a scale buggy, the EXO. Both four wheel drive, both very durable, both ready for extreme bashing sessions.
Voting for Round 2 will be done in two parts, the first part is over. Part two is now, voting will close on Thursday, the 28th, at 11:59 pm Central time. Get your vote on now.
