Spektrum DX6R Review

Spektrum DX6R Radio Review

While the BigSquidRC Bash Crew doesn’t make a point of reviewing all the latest “racer” oriented gear, we do make a point out of reviewing higher-end products when possible. It is true that most bashers use products at the lower end of the price range, yet there are still plenty of them that have no problem cutting the check for [...]

While the Traxxas X-Maxx is a beast right out of the box, its power system doesn’t have the insane yank of something like the E-Revo on 6S.

FireBrand RC

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