The Vaterra Halix 4wd Monster Truck is one of the most eagerly anticipated bash truck releases in quite some time. Why? Because 4wd tenth scale monster trucks typically make great all around bash machines.
We are still in the middle of our review process on the Vaterra Halix, but while you wait for our full review you can check out the unboxing pictures. Below are four galleries that show you exactly what it looks like when you crack the box open on a brand new Halix.

When Speed Passion first announced their new LM-1 LeMans car we were immediately interested. It’s a pan car so it should be fast and it has some pretty cool scale looks, nobody can resist that combination.
While we are finishing up the LM-1 review, have a look at the unboxing pictures. It comes in two boxes, a small box containing the actual car kit, and a larger box with the body inside. The biggest thing we noticed during the unboxing was how trick the multi-piece body looks. If it looks this good clear, it should really knock our socks off when painted.
Also pictured but not included in the kit are a Speed Passion Reventon S ($59) speed controller and a Speed Passion V3.0 17.5R ($49) brushless motor. We are looking forward to seeing how much rip these affordable units have during our review.

8th scale buggies are common on the bashing scene, they are fast and they are tough, a perfect combo for serious bashing. The latest 8th scale buggy from Team Durango is the DEX408 V2. The Version 2 is updated to not only make the big Durango faster, but also even tougher. The V2 comes as a kit, which many people prefer. Sure, it takes a while to build one, but once together you know your new bash machine like the back of your hand, and you know it was put together correctly.
Our full review for the DEX408 V2 is still a couple of weeks away, until then, take a look at our unboxing pictures to see exactly what it looks like when you crack the box open. We also included pictures of the Futaba S9353HV servo and TrakPower 2S 6800 Lipos that we chose to use for the install.

While the new Carisma vehicles haven’t made their way stateside (quite yet), their line-up of bashing vehicles continues to grow. Check out the new Carisma M10DT as we unbox it for the first time.
We were nicely surprised by the flat paint on the outside of the vehicle, as it takes an interesting twist to being also on the tires, the bumpers, and anything else exposed. It’s almost as if there is a artist on the Cariama assembly line painting them as they go by.. or at least we like to imagine it that way.
Another interesting surprise was the parts tree in the box for the accessories. There are actually two of them. Our resident model painter was digging this for sure, and is looking forward to getting started.
We will have a full review in a couple weeks after we get some serious wheel time in. For now, check out our unboxing pictures. To get more information on all the products that Carisma makes simply hit This Link.

We’ve been bashing and thrashing the new Estes Proto X nano quadcopter for a while now and our review is nearly ready. Before we post the review, we need to post some unboxing pictures, so here they are.
You can’t help but be blown away with just how small the Proto X is when you crack it out of the box. It’s the smallest quad we’ve ever flown. You’ll also notice that it comes with everything you need to get going except a pair of AAA batteries.
To find out what we think of the Proto X you’ll have to wait for our full review, until then hit up This Link to see more flying machines from Estes.

Racers Edge is known mainly for their aftermarket accessories, but they have cars too. Today we are bringing you unboxing pictures of their new Pro4 Enduro truck. The Enduro is a 10th scale, 4wd short course truck that comes fully assembled and ready to jam right out of the box. The thing that immediately caught our attention was the fact it has a street price of $359 and comes with a brushless power system already installed.
When unboxing the Enduro we noticed that it comes with a protective film over the body to make sure it arrives unscratched. We also noticed that the Enduro looks good in hand, the body is sharp, and the chassis looks ready for a good off-road pounding. Also of note, the chassis is extra stiff, due at least in part to its full top deck.
Take a look at our unboxing pictures below to see exactly what it looks like to pop a new Enduro out of the box. Be sure to click the “Read More” button for two additional unboxing galleries.

Carisma might not be available here in the states (yet!), but they sure have a cool looking bash line-up. Today we’ll show you what it looks like to pull a brand new Carisma GT16MT out of the box.
The pictures below don’t really show the scale of the GT16MT but it is a big “mini”. The GT16MT dwarfs an Associated RC18T and is substantially larger than an 18th scale ECX Ruckus. The other thing that stuck out during the unboxing was the lexan undertray and buggy body/inner tray on the Carisma.
Our full review goes live in a couple weeks, until then check out our unboxing pictures. To get more information on all the products that Carisma makes simply hit This Link.

Small scale vehicles can make great bash machines, they are inexpensive, usually take a good beating, and can be driven almost anywhere. Today we’ll be showing you what it looks like to unbox a new ECX 1/18th Ruckus 4wd Monster Truck. It’s bigger brother is loads of fun to bash, we’ll see if the 18th scale version is just as, if not more, fun.
The first thing we noticed after cracking the box open was the Ruckus came with everything you need to go driving, even the AA batteries for the transmitter are included. Next, the size of the Ruckus is quite impressive for an 18th scale which should help make it more versatile on rough surfaces. Our full review goes up in the next couple of weeks, until then enjoy the unboxing pictures and you can hit up This Link for more information on the 1/18th Ruckus.
