Everybody’s Scalin’ – New Body Day is the Best Day

I’ve mentioned a time or two that one of my favorite things about this hobby is that moment when you get a brand new builder’s kit up on your workbench and crack open the box for the first time. The knowledge that you are about to turn a bucket of parts into something that can be driven (along with that [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Brings a Tear to My Eye

The above picture, shot last week at my LHS, may not mean much to some people, but it was definitely a cool sight for me. The two biggest names in monster trucks, each represented by two of the biggest names in r/c, sitting right there in the display case as two of the hottest items on the market. Brings a tear [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Monsterizing a Monster Truck

Hello gang, I hope everyone is having a most fantastic Friday. I’ve spent the past week starting the mod process on my SMT10 and want to show off what I’ve done thus far. Remember those recently announced JConcepts Ford bodies? One of them magically found its way to my mailbox, specifically a ’93 Super Cab. The early 90’s were a glorious time for monster trucking, so [...]

Review – Pro-Line Brawler Monster Truck Wheels

Not since Tamiya was duking it out with Kyosho during the late 80’s/early 90’s have solid axle monster trucks ever been as popular as they are now. Slowly but surely the aftermarket has started to come around and unlike years past, it’s now relatively easy for the average hobbyist to get one together. However, for the longest time a good wheel has [...]

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 [...]

Review – Pro-Line Destroyer Clodbuster Tires

When it comes to r/c tires, Pro-Line Racing has long been an industry leader. Whether you are a basher or racer they’ve always had the goods. That being said, it’s been many moons since they offered anything for the scale monster truck crowd. That changed a few weeks ago with the announcement of the Pro-Line Destroyer (part # 10114-02 street priced [...]
