Everybody’s Scalin’ – Brings a Tear to My Eye

The above picture, shot last week at my LHS, may not mean much to some people, but it was definitely a cool sight for me. The two biggest names in monster trucks, each represented by two of the biggest names in r/c, sitting right there in the display case as two of the hottest items on the market. Brings a tear [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Monsterizing a Monster Truck

Hello gang, I hope everyone is having a most fantastic Friday. I’ve spent the past week starting the mod process on my SMT10 and want to show off what I’ve done thus far. Remember those recently announced JConcepts Ford bodies? One of them magically found its way to my mailbox, specifically a ’93 Super Cab. The early 90’s were a glorious time for monster trucking, so [...]

JConcepts Teases New Monster Truck Tire & Wheel

JConcepts has just released a teaser picture of a new monster truck tire & wheel, which is mounted up to an Axial SMT10 Grave Digger. The 2.6 sized tire (Clod), called the Renegade (as seen on the sidewall), has a very aggressive tread that mimics a hand carved 66″ Goodyear Terra that has long been popular with full size trucks. Many long [...]

Fresh off the Chi-Town crew holding a big bash, there is no rest for the wicked as we will be at the BIGFOOT 4×4 Open House in Pacific, MO (just outside St. Louis) this weekend- Saturday April 23rd to be more precise.

Traxxas and Bigfoot 4×4 Teaming Up?

Being our resident monster truck fanatic here at Squid HQ, the first part of the year is always most exciting to me. January – March is officially “Monster Truck Season” as that’s when all the various circuits are running indoors at stadiums and arena each weekend. As such, this time of year is also when the teams debut their new paint [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ – The Wheels In the Sky Keep Turnin’

With all the new scale crawling news that has been seemingly breaking each week since mid October (more on the Venture FJ next week as at the time of this writing Thursday there wasn’t much info available), some of the other stuff going on can fall through the cracks. One of said news pieces is the monster truck wheel from [...]

The powder (like I’m using here) is around 90 cents. The liquid stuff costs around $2-$3 a pop. Any light colored plastic part will usually [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ For the Weekend – Best Shots of 2014

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! It’s been pretty slow around these parts due to the holidays (I’m also at the mercy of the USPS waiting on parts for 3 different trucks) so to bide some time here is a big gallery showcasing some of my favorite shots from 2014. I had a very busy year taking parts [...]



Everybody's Scalin' For the Weekend - Bigfoot 4x4 Monster Tr…

2014 has been a year of monster truck resurgence in the r/c industry. One has to look no further for evidence than right here at BSRC, as our review went live this week for basher of the year contender, the Pro-Line Pro-MT monster truck. What better way to end the week then, than with a recap of a major monster [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ For the Weekend – Hot Doggin’

Axial shared the above photo the other day on their official facebook page and it has since spread like wildfire across the interwebs. While I wouldn’t just normally shamelessly lift something from there, this is something you all should see. Apparently the owner of a paralyzed dachshund took matters into his own hands to outfit his little buddy with a [...]



Everybody's Scalin' For the Weekend - Trigger King R/C Mud &…

A few weeks ago you may of seen my piece on building a Tamiya Lunchbox for use in a retro monster truck racing series. Last weekend we held the first event and, despite mother nature throwing a curve ball, it was a blast! There are 3 classes; Scale Monster Truck (Axial based hybrids, modded Tamiya TXT-1’s and Clodbusters), Retro Monster Truck [...]
