T-Bone Racing Vaterra Halix Wheelie Bar

T-Bone Racing Wheelie T-Bar for Vaterra Halix

There is no doubt the Vaterra Halix loves to wheelie. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone made a bar with wheels on it so you could pull block long wheelies without flipping over? Cue the music for T-Bone Racing. Their T-Bar mounts right up to the stock Halix rear bumper and will instantly make your truck a whole lot easier to [...]

“Vaterra Halix Build What’s the deal with the Vaterra Halix build? You left me hanging. I was following that build step by step (although I installed the Vaterra CVDs instead of the MIPs.) I figured you guys had gotten busy with the trade show and had put the build on hold, but that’s well in the past. Is the Halix build [...]

Vaterra Halix Hop-Up Series Part #6 – Upgrading the S…

While the stock servo in the Vaterra Halix works fine for general bashing, to go truly high performance a better servo needs to be installed. A better servo will not only be faster than the stock unit, but also have more power for keeping those big tires pointed where you intend them to be. For our Halix project we decided to [...]

This week in our Vaterra Halix upgrade series we’ll be showing you how to install new turnbuckles. There are a couple of good reasons to do this, the first being that the stock units can break during hard bashing, the second is that the stock units are not adjustable. Being able to adjust tire camber and front toe-in comes in [...]

The previous hop-ups we performed on the Vaterra Halix didn’t take much elbow grease. Installing pre-mounted wheels & tires can take as little as 5 minutes, while installing a pre-painted body might take less than half an hour. On the flip side of the coin, installing MIP CVDs on the Halix might be the most time consuming hop-up to be [...]

The single biggest difference you can do for the looks of your truck is to change its body. Changing out the body will make your truck look different from everyone else’s at the local bash spot, and in some cases, can even improve performance. For those reasons changing the body on our Vaterra Halix was a “must do” project. In years [...]

Changing to better tires is commonly known as the best “Bang for the Buck” upgrade that you can do to any rc car. While the Vaterra Halix comes with decent tires, we are shooting for top-of-the-line with our project truck so better units were a must. We consider Pro-Line Trenchers the best all around bashing tires that money can buy, so [...]
