VS Tank Pro Review

THE VS Tank Pro ReviewWe recently got our hands on two VS Tank Pro vehicles. The M4A3 Sherman (USA) and the Pz.753 (German) seemed like good choices. We opted for the infrared instead of the Airsoft versions because we knew with Cubby around we’d have bb holes in walls and bruised shins. On the official VS Tank website the vehicles [...]

Some of the products include a aluminum servo horn, hex wheel hubs, and rear hubs [...]



Traxxas Funny Car unboxing and (pre)view

  What you see above, is the Traxxas John Force Funny Car at around 1pm today.  The cleanest it’ll ever look and it didn’t last long.  What you see below is what happened 5 hours later or about 3 cycles on a 5000mah 3s lipo.  From what I’m told, if you participate in the current drag racing scene, that’s about 3 [...]

New from O.S. Engines is the 12TG VII engine. It has a two-piece head and 12FB slide-valve carb. It’s ROAR legal for all you folks who need that sort of thing.

Kyosho DBX VE 2.0 Buggy unboxing

The review of the Kyosho DBX VE 2.0 buggy has begun but until it’s done, this unboxing should hold you over.  I know it isn’t a short course but on paper, the closest thing I want to compare this to on “features for the price” is the Traxxas Slash 4×4.  Given that, at $369.99 street it appears it’ll be a [...]
