RadShapeRC might just have what you are looking for. The RadShapeRC Box Trailer is an actual kit that you have to put together.

The kit doesn’t come with wheels but is perfect for bolting up the 1.9′s of your choice. The part number is #RRCCT03 while the street price is £99 (about $150 US).

The scale scene continues to blow up, more and more people are tricking out their trucks, making them tougher and even more scale looking for trail running on the weekends. Along with all the popularity has come a plethora of aftermarket hop-up companies.
There is a UK based company called RadShapeRC that is putting out some pretty cool scale parts for the Axial SCX10 series trucks. One of their latest products is a Bull Bar with Winch Plate made specifically for the SCX10. Not only does it look scale but it’s built tough for those long days on the trail.

Sometimes all you need is a good HUB! Well that’s what I think the peeps over at GMADE where thinking when they designed these scale 1.9 Wheel Hubs. These little aluminum beauties come in 5 different styles and in your choice of Black, Red or Silver. They have a nice M4 nylon lock nut that is bound to fit tons of vehicles as well as including all the necessary hardware to get you mounted up and rolling in no time. Retail should be under 15 bucks and it should add that extra bit of scale detail to finish off your rig.

Man I can’t even nod off for a few days and the fellers over at RC4WD just keep pushing the envelope every chance they get. What you have here is a handmade tube trailer with steel leaf springs, a working jack lift, steel tool box and working lights called the Big Dog Dual Axle Hauler. She also comes loaded up with 1.55 Dirt grabber tires and billet aluminum wheels. Now I will be the first one to say she is not light on the wallet but if you don’t have the time or the skills sometimes you are better off paying the piper.

Hello all you crazed Scaler Fans out there we are launching an official SCALER section here at BigSquidRC and I will be your host!!! Please hold the applause until after you see what I can put together. So I have been thinking about this section of the hobby and how to best present it to the masses for some time, and while we will always be posting new items and quick blurbs on the main page this section will be dedicated to bringing you a sort of week in review in scale. With highlights on some brands taking scale to the next level, to “How To” videos, tips and tricks of the scale world and everything in between. Please let me know if there is something in your neck of the woods that is scale related or if there is something in particular you want more info on just ask!
So since this is the beginning I thought it would only be fitting to take us all back to the beginning of scale (at least in my opinion……)!
