FireBrand RC

FireBrand RC Showoff body display stand, MACHSPEED-GTR and…

FireBrand RC sent in a sweet collection of their RC Drift focused parts for review. Right off the bat one has to notice the thoughtful packaging and that ALL the parts are included with the 6mm wheel hex spacers. Too often shiny parts require additional parts to actually install onto the vehicle, so including the cross pin is a great [...]

Not since Tamiya was duking it out with Kyosho during the late 80’s/early 90’s have solid axle monster trucks ever been as popular as they are now. Slowly but surely the aftermarket has started to come around and unlike years past, it’s now relatively easy for the average hobbyist to get one together. However, for the longest time a good wheel has [...]

RC4WD 1/8 Warn Zeon 10 Winch & Wireless Winch Controller Rev…

When it comes to scale accessories, RC4WD is arguably the top name in the business. A few weeks ago we got our hands on their new 1/8 Warn Zeon 10 Winch and put it to work in a freshly built Axial SCX10 Dingo. For the longest time a winch has been more of a decorative piece of scale swag than something that was [...]
