Futaba 3PV Review

Futaba 3PV Radio System Review

Want to know the fastest way to figure out who the noob is at the local bash spot? Look for the guy holding a stock RTR radio. Serious hobbyists know that to get the most out of their vehicles, a RTR simply will not cut it. That is the reason that radios like the Futaba 3PV exist. The 3PV was [...]

Hitec RCD AEE MD10 Action Camera – REVIEW with videos!

These days, action cameras are essentially a dime a dozen. The category “action camera” used to only encompass a few specific models (GoPro, and… um… GoPro) but now that category has broadened to include a variety of new products from a variety of manufacturers. Some of the companies getting into the action camera segment are already recognizable by us RC [...]

2016 ARRMA Senton BLX Short Course Truck Review

2016 ARRMA Senton BLX Short Course Truck Review

Over the past year, the ARRMA Senton BLX Short Course Truck has really taken off. Bashers love the truck for its power, looks, and for its ability to take a beating and come back for more. For 2016 ARRMA upgraded the Senton with a new power system, new radio gear, and fresh livery. We’ve been beating on the 2016 ARRMA [...]

Spektrum High-Voltage 1/5 Scale Digital Servo Reviews

Since we have been loving and bashing the heck out of our Losi 1/5 WRC from Horizon Hobby, it seemed only appropriate to give it a little upgrade. We recently got our hands on two new servos from Spektrum. The S9020 1/5 Scale Digital HV (High Voltage) Steering Servo, and the S9010 Throttle Servo. How did they do in the [...]

2016 ARRMA Typhon Buggy Review

2016 ARRMA Typhon BLX Buggy Review

When first introduced last year, the ARRMA Typhon BLX 1/8 Buggy was a hit with the bashing crowd. It had a 6S capable power system, long travel suspension, and a high-tech look. Not one’s to rest on their laurels, ARRMA has upgraded the Typhon for 2016. The Typhon now comes with a Tactic radio system, new wheels, a new rear [...]

arrma nero monster truck review

ARRMA Nero Monster Truck With Diff Brain Review

Without doubt, the most highly touted and anticipated car of 2016 is the ARRMA Nero monster truck. A series of teasers about its new “rc brain/smart diff” kept the rc world wondering just how radical the latest vehicle from ARRMA was going to be. Once announced, the Nero did not disappoint, it was pure radical from nose to tail. The [...]

Duratrax Approach CR Tire Review

Duratrax Approach CR 1.9″ Tire Review

Tires are hands down the number one upgrade you can make to nearly an rc vehicle. That doesn’t just apply to “race” vehicles, you can easily transform the handling characteristics of any rc car by bolting up stickier tires. A couple months ago Duratrax threw their hat into the ring of upgrade tires for the scale/trail/rock crawling crowd. We tested [...]

Kershaw Leopard X-Maxx Brushless Review

Kershaw Leopard 150A ESC/5874 Brushless Combo For X-Maxx Rev…

The folks over at Kershaw Designs are hardcore about their monster trucks and large scalers. A couple months ago we reviewed one of their 1/5th scale Leopard systems on 8S, you can read that review HERE, but to boil it down, it put out wayyyy more power than the X-Maxx was capable of putting to the ground, or its drivetrain [...]

Kershaw Designs X-Maxx Brushless LiPo Review

Review - Kershaw Designs Traxxas X-Maxx Brushless/LiPo Upgra…

Hey, in case you didn’t get the memo, the Traxxas X-Maxx is a big deal now days, not only in size but in the way it has taken off with the bash crowd. The X-Maxx pretty much rocks out of the box, with one exception, a watered down power system. While the stock brushless system has decent power, it is [...]
