Losi Baja Rey Desert Truck 9

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Baja Rey More Like Baja Bae

It isn’t often that I let out an audible gasp when seeing a new product release, but Team Losi accomplished such a feat yesterday when showing off their Baja Rey for the first time. The news release came out in the morning, and I was messing around with my phone before heading into the office. When I scrolled across the [...]

Chi-Town RC Crawlers First Outing

It only took the power of social media 11 days and a not-so-typical 60 degree day in February for the Chi-Town RC Crawlers to come out of the woodwork. On February 17, an independent Facebook Group, Chi-Town RC Crawlers, was created giving Chicagoland RC crawler and rock racer enthusiasts a place to call their virtual home. In under two weeks [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Don’t Be a Fool

Ya know, the same questions are always popping up on the scale crawling boards so I figure today is the perfect day to address many of the most popular ones and give some 100% concrete advice. – Shock Size. Bigger is ALWAYS better. The longer shocks you have, the higher your ride is, which means it’s easier to climb over obstacles [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Good Things on Good Friday

You know, being angry or annoyed sure does make it easier to write something usually (just ask Cubby, LOL). Because of this, many times it’s very easy to overlook the good. And since the boss let us out of jail a day early this week (here’s a secret, I’m writing this on Thursday) I’m in a festive mood. Let’s celebrate [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – To Bling or Not to Bling

To bling or not to bling, that is the question I’m asking this week. I’ve got a project monster truck in the works and I plan on hanging a pair of Vanquish F9’s under it. It’s going to be my first purchase of complete machined housings and as such the question above is on my mind. You see in most of r/c [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – I Shall Call Him “Mini Me”

Hopefully everyone enjoyed reading our review of the RC4WD Trail Finder 2 that went up a couple days ago. As luck would have it the winter weather broke and the last two weeks had lots of high 60’s weather – perfect for scaling. And what a time was had! I think the review spells it out pretty well, but it was a lot [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Keep Moving Forward

If you aren’t moving forward then you are either standing still or going backwards. Here at Big Squid we like to think we are always moving ahead. At the very least we certainly try. Scale trucks have always been sort of an oddity around here when it comes review time. When driven in comparison to your standard track/basher vehicle they are [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Can You Dig It?

One of the noob questions that routinely shows up on the crawler boards (usually followed by several sarcastic answers) is “What is a Dig Unit?“. It really is easy to forgive the question though because digs have been going the way of the dodo since competition crawling’s popularity took a nose dive following the scale boom. Still, you can find dig [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Stompers, the Original Scaler

Whenever there is discussion as to what was the first “real” scaler, there is always playful argument. Some say it was the SCX10 since it brought it to mainstream. Others bring up Tamiya’s legendary (and legendarily expensive) Bruiser. Those vehicles are fine and all, but I think the first true scaler was something else. Something a lot smaller. Heck, it [...]
