MaxAmps 9000XL X-Maxx LiPo Battery Review

MaxAmps 9000XL X-Maxx LiPo Battery Review

Assuming you aren’t living on Mars, you’ve probably noticed that the Traxxas X-Maxx has taken the bashing world by storm. However, it is a huge beast that is not only hard on batteries, but also known for sucking normal packs dry in a matter of minutes. The folks at MaxAmps heard the cries for more power and longer runtimes, therefore [...]

Kyosho 1970 Dodge Charger Review

Kyosho 1970 Dodge Charger Review

Everything we have posted about the Kyosho 1970 Dodge Charger has gotten a lot of hits. In fact, more hits than any on-road car in recent memory. Is that due to its tough muscle car look? Maybe it’s due to the Orion dDrive system that sits under the hood? We have been bashing the daylights out of our Kyosho test unit [...]

Traxxas X-Maxx Monster Truck Review

Unless you’ve been living on Mars, you’ve certainly heard about the latest and greatest from Traxxas, the giant X-Maxx.

Losi Mini 8IGHT Buggy AVC Review

Losi Mini 8IGHT RTR Buggy with AVC Review

The Losi Mini 8IGHT buggy from Horizon Hobby has been a fast and furious little basher since its initial release. Its latest version features AVC electronic stability control and we have been bashing the daylights out of one to see how gnarly it is. In fact, we took the 1/14th Losi with us on numerous roadtrips that spanned 4 states [...]

Dynamite TurboKick Review

Dynamite RC TurboKick Power Booster Review

So here we are to review the Dynamite RC TurboKick. Just what the heck is a TurboKick? Well, it is kinda like a turbo button.

When you hit the third channel on your transmitter, the TurboKicks increases the voltage going into your [...]

Revell Modzilla Review

Revell Modzilla 1/18 Monster Truck Review

Sometimes you don’t want (or need) high-end. Sometimes you just want something affordable to get the job done. The Revell Modzilla MT is a very affordably priced 1/18th scaler aimed at the basher crowd. Does it have enough performance to be fun? How hard can it be bashed before it breaks? Should you cut the check? Read on to find [...]
