Does it meet expectations? Hit the “Read More” to find out…
THE ARRMA Granite Mega Monster Truck Review
Being a two time champion of our coveted Bash Vehicle of the Year, the ARRMA Granite packs some serious street cred with the bashing crowd. For 2014 ARRMA announced a new more affordable line-up, the Mega Series, that was designed to give good performance at a reasonable price. To make the price drop happen on the Mega Series, certain goodies had to be taken away (like the aluminum chassis and hex hardware). Is the Mega Series Granite still a capable bash machine? Is it slower than the previous brushed Granite? Has it lost any mojo? Hit the “Read More” to find out…
THE Losi Mini 8IGHT-T Truggy From Horizon Hobby Review
In today’s review we’ll be taking a very up close and personal look at the Mini 8IGHT-T Truggy from Losi. The Mini 8IGHT-T comes in at 1/14 scale, bigger than most minis, but significantly smaller than a tenth scaled truck. It comes brushless powered and with the high zoot AVC that everyone is talking about. Can the Mini 8IGHT-T take the beating required to be a good bash vehicle? Is it worth its $279 price point? Is there enough yank under the hood to keep a smile on your face? Hit the “Read More” to find out…
THE Losi LST XXL-2 4WD Gasoline Monster Truck Review
Hype, hype, and more hype, that has been the name of the gas game so far. The first offering, the HPI Octane, seemed to come up a bit short of all the promises. Hit the “Read More” button below to read our review of the second gas burner to hit the market, the Losi LST XXL-2 Monster Truck. Does it have enough power to be fun? Does it easily start every single time? Do you have to constantly tune it? Is it worth your hard earned cash? Make the jump to find out…
Axial Yeti Review
There has been a good amount of new vehicle releases lately, but I don’t believe there has been a vehicle released in the last 2 years that has received as much hype as the Axial Yeti! Heck, we posted 3/4 of a picture of the thing, with a link to where you could pre-order, and not only did we receive a record amount of traffic that day, I have heard the pre-orders from our page were through the roof! So does the Yeti deserve all the hype? Is this the rock racer the world has been waiting for? Click the ‘Read More’ to find out, and make sure to check out the video!
THE ECX Circuit 4WD RTR Review
Myself, like many of you, spent years driving 2wd Stadium Trucks. They were a whole lot easier to drive and bash with compared to a typical 2wd buggy. A 4wd stadium truck would have been even better, but there were very few available, and those that were tended to break all the time.
ECX recently released their all wheel drive stadium truck, the ready to run 4wd Circuit. Does the Circuit make a good basher? Can it get around the track? Does it have enough power to be fun? And most importantly, is it worth your hard earned cash? Find out by hitting the “Read More” button below…
HPI Racing – Savage XL Octane Review
*Update: Now with Video!
The world has been waiting for almost three years since HPI Racing announced the Savage XL Octane, and it’s a good thing we were not holding our breath because we were all expecting it a little sooner. The Savage XL Octane is the first 1/8 Scale GAS monster truck to hit this the market, and a lot of people are wondering if this will be the beginning of the turn from electric vehicles dominance to a full change in the market place. Should you start saving your cash? Is the next rc vehicle you buy going to be gas? Hit the “Read More” to find out…
THE Team Durango DEX210v2 Buggy Review
If you are an “old timer” then you probably spent years driving/racing/bashing a 2wd tenth scale buggy. Now days the class has had a resurgence in popularity, making it arguably bigger than it has ever been. The “new crop” of 2wd buggies are loaded with tech from front to rear, and one of the companies staying on the leading edge of 2wd buggy technology has been Team Durango. We’ve been bashing the living daylights out of their new DEX210v2 to find out if it’s just a race machine, or if you can actually have fun with it at the local bash spot. What did we find out?

THE ECX Torment 4wd RTR SCT Review
ECX, while still a relatively “new” brand, has made quite the splash in the bashing market. Their original 2wd Torment short course truck proved to be a capable bash machine, as well as several other vehicles in their line-up. We’ve been driving one of their new 4wd Torment RTR SCTs for a few weeks to see how it stacks up. Is the 4wd worth the extra cash? How does it stack up to one of the toughest fields in all of rc (4wd SCT)? Can the new 4wd platform take a hit without breaking? Hit the “Read More” to find out…
THE Team Durango DETC410 Touring Car Review
Team Durango has been known for years as a premium producer of off-road machines, luckily for us the UPS man dropped off their very first on-road machine, the DETC410 Touring Car, for some good old fashioned bashing action. As the first of its kind from Durango, the DETC410 sits on an all new, and very high-end, platform. Can you bash with it? Is it really that trick? Does it bring something to the plate that no one else offers? Hit the “Read More” and find out…
THE Helion Dominus 10SCv2 4×4 Short Course Truck Review
The original Helion Dominus was an affordable and solid bash machine. Recently the Helion crew announced its successor, the Dominus 10SCv2. The version 2 comes with a much more powerful Reaktor brushless system, along with many other changes. Is the 10SCv2 that much better than the original? How does it stack up against the very stiff competition in its class? And more importantly, is it worth your hard earned cash? Hit the “Read More” button to find out…
Scale 4×4′s are white hot right now, and one of the trucks leading the charge is the Axial SCX10. The latest version to come down the pike is the sweet looking Casey Currie themed Jeep Wrangler Unlimited C/R Edition. Is this RTR JK worth your hard earned duckets? Click the “Read More” to find out.
THE Carisma M40DT Desert Truck Brushless RTR Review
Is there a hotter class than 4wd Short Course Truck right now? It seems that when we go bashing they are everywhere, and for good reason, they look good and can typically take a pretty hard beating. One of the newest trucks to enter the category is the Carisma M40DT Desert Truck. The M40DT comes with the brushless power and scale detailing that everyone is looking for now days, and it does it at a very affordable price point. After driving the truck for weeks (like escaped mental patients) what did we learn? Click the “Read More” to find out…
