Everybody’s Scalin’ – Endurance Racing & Ford Bodies

As winter keeps on keepin’ on, it’s nice to look ahead to warmer weather, sunny skies, and the start of scaling season. While it’s true that technically there is no “off-season” for the avid trailsman, it sure is a lot more enjoyable when the temperature is bearable. One of the first big events of 2016 is also approaching – the [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ – I Want Your Body

Did you folks see the new RC4WD Chevy Blazer body that was announced last week? Yowza. For a company that is renowned for their ultra detailed products, they’ve truly outdone themselves. It’s a great segway into my topic this week – it’s fully detailed bodies or no body for me anymore. I know, I know, in the past I’ve championed Lexan bodies [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ – The Bad Apple

Every club has them. You know. The guy that either is at best annoying yet tolerable; at worst can ruin your group completely. These people are a cancer. The r/c world has largely stereotyped this character as the long standing, insufferable racer. And while it’s true that I’ve dealt with many a racer like this, it’s more the case that ANY [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ – Night Moves

Awhile back I had a conversation with a scaler buddy that seemed completely bewildered and confused when I explained to him how hard it was for me to do what seemed like a basic thing to him – building a kit or tearing down a rig after heavy use. “But Doug, you’ve been doing this for 20 years and it takes you [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ – Tin Foil Hatting for 2016

Happy New Year! With the first day of 2016 upon us I figured I’d put on my tinfoil had and make a couple predictions for what we’ll see in the world of scaling over the next 365 days. Before looking ahead, last year I made several predictions for 2015- that a scale short course truck would come out (while technically a “Trophy Truck”, this was [...]



Everybody's Scalin' - Merry Christmas and a Year's End Galle…

Merry Christmas everyone! I sincerely hope that there was a lot of r/c goodness under the tree this year. If there wasn’t, well, it probably wasn’t a manufacturer’s fault; there has been an insane amount of stuff released this last year. I’d have to say that 2015 was probably my favorite year of being involved in the hobby. Lots of trigger [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ – The Wheels In the Sky Keep Turnin’

With all the new scale crawling news that has been seemingly breaking each week since mid October (more on the Venture FJ next week as at the time of this writing Thursday there wasn’t much info available), some of the other stuff going on can fall through the cracks. One of said news pieces is the monster truck wheel from [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ – The New Scaler from MST

The next big release in the scaling world is about to happen, this time from a very unlikely source – MST (Max Speed Technology). Launching next week, the MST CMX is the companies first foray into the genre and is being offered in several different kits with various body options. You can look at this article to see the array (hooray Unimog!). While they are new [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – A Word About Illegal Copycats

Hey folks, I’ve been a bit long winded the last few weeks so I’ll keep it relatively short today. A couple weeks back I wrote about how expensive doesn’t necessarily mean overpriced, and in that I very briefly touched on the subject of illegal knockoff trucks. Well, as (un)luck would have it, just this past week I saw a “new” scaler [...]



Everybody's Scalin' - Stocking Stuffer Ideas For The Scaler …

Happy Black Friday to all! Holiday shopping season is officially underway, and you know, hobbyists, particularly scalers, can be a tough lot to buy for. Why? Because we buy it all ourselves! With that said we still do like to get gifts from other people from time to time, so here is an ecclectic mix of products that any scaler should [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ – Expensive Doesn’t Mean Overpriced

The topic of expensive vs. overpriced is one that I’ve been meaning to tackle for sometime, and with the holidays quickly approaching I figure now is as good a time as ever. Consider this a prelude to my “Stocking Stuffers For Your Scaler” piece that’s going to go live on Black Friday next week. Here at Big Squid we try our [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ – The RR10 Looks Badass

Whether we are talking about the scaling genre or r/c landscape as a whole, 2015 has been pretty slow on the news front compared to many of the big announcements that took place in 2014. Well, at least that was the case about a month ago. Holy cow has the news started coming in fast and furious! If 2015 was [...]



Everybody’s Scalin’ – Large Scale Scaling

Sooooo….after the onslaught of news over the last week I think it’s pretty safe to say that large scale r/c is the new hotness. The industry has been trending that way for awhile now, but the X-Maxx will most likely blow it wide open. With that in mind, plus the myriad of various large scale crawlers available on the market, I’m now jonesing for a [...]
