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 [...]

Futaba 4PV Review

Futaba 4PV Radio Review

While some bashers don’t mind spending crazy money on the most elite electronics on the market, most shoot for the best bang for the buck. The brand new Futaba 4PV has a slew of features normally found on high-end radios, but is priced considerably less. The combination of those factors will make the 4PV a prime candidate to be bought [...]

Futaba 3PV Review

Futaba 3PV Radio System Review

Want to know the fastest way to figure out who the noob is at the local bash spot? Look for the guy holding a stock RTR radio. Serious hobbyists know that to get the most out of their vehicles, a RTR simply will not cut it. That is the reason that radios like the Futaba 3PV exist. The 3PV was [...]

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 [...]

There are many different segments to the rc hobby. Some people love flying planes, others love rock crawlers, while others scratch their rc itch by driving boats. RC Tanks have long been a favorite among rc hobbyists, and while the genre isn’t a large one, it is still quite active and can be a great way to experience something new [...]

Pro Boat Stealthwake 23 Review

Pro Boat Stealthwake 23 Review

Pro Boat made waves a couple of months ago by announcing the Stealthwake 23. It had sharp looks, a deep-v design, and most importantly, a very reasonable price point. When we first saw the Stealthwake, it actually reminded us of another Horizon product, the ECX Ruckus. Both are affordably priced and aimed right at the weekend basher crowd. What do [...]

Pro Boat Voracity Type E 36 Review

Pro Boat Voracity-E 36-inch Deep-V Brushless Review

If you are looking for true high speed performance right out of the box, the 36″ Deep-V class is a great place to find it. A few months ago Horizon Hobby announced their entry into the class, the Voracity-E RTR, and since then we’ve had plenty of time to put it through the wringer. Is the Voracity-E fast? Can it [...]
