Review - Pro-Line 2.2" BFGoodrich KR2 Tires & Denali Bead-lo…

Pro-Line’s latest scale tire is a replica of one of the most popular 1:1 pieces of off-road rubber on the market today, the BFGoodrich Baja T/A KR2. It’s available in both 1.9″ and 2.2″ sizes, but we had an Axial Bomber laying around the office in need of shoes so we went with 2.2″ for this review. Does the mini version [...]

Review – Pro-Line Brawler Monster Truck Wheels

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 [...]

Product Review – SSD Side Sliders for Vaterra Ascender

The Vaterra Ascender is a stout scaler that’s quickly become a viable platform to get your trail on. I recently built one and have been enjoying it. I had just one complaint with it….the plastic rock sliders. The plastic ones are a bit wobbly and I’m not big on the wrap around look with VATERRA stamped into them. As luck [...]

Twin stick radios are so old school that nobody uses them anymore, right??? That absolutely isn’t the case, in fact they are making a bit of a comeback thanks to the crawling/trailing and boat crowds. When Futaba announced the twin stick 4GRS it was actually a pretty big deal, it isn’t often when a new surface twin sticker hits the [...]
