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' - The Customer Is Always Right...Unless …

One of the most beautiful things about the scale segment of the hobby is how much super-niche aftermarket stuff you can find from small vendors. It really is outrageous, what-with all the custom stuff available. Need a complete aftermarket tube chassis for an RC4WD Trail Finder 2? Yep, you can find someone who sells them. Need a custom stinger bumper that [...]

Review - Pro-Line 2.2" BFGoodrich KR2 Tires & Denali Bead-lo…

Pro-Line’s latest scale tire is a replica of one of the most popular 1:1 pieces of off-road rubber on the market today, the BFGoodrich Baja T/A KR2. It’s available in both 1.9″ and 2.2″ sizes, but we had an Axial Bomber laying around the office in need of shoes so we went with 2.2″ for this review. Does the mini version [...]

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’ – 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’ – 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 [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Endurance Racing & Ford Bodies

As winter keeps on keepin’ on, it’s nice to look ahead to warmer weather, sunny skies, and the start of scaling season. While it’s true that technically there is no “off-season” for the avid trailsman, it sure is a lot more enjoyable when the temperature is bearable. One of the first big events of 2016 is also approaching – the [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Discussing the Venture FJ

Finally there is news on the HPI Venture FJ! Despite being announced last month, under the hood had been shrouded in mystery. Thanks to our story on Monday, it’s a mystery no longer. Apparently I was not the only one excited for the reveal as we broke single day traffic records here on BSRC. Yes, that’s right. The Venture now holds [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – I Want Your Body

Did you folks see the new RC4WD Chevy Blazer body that was announced last week? Yowza. For a company that is renowned for their ultra detailed products, they’ve truly outdone themselves. It’s a great segway into my topic this week – it’s fully detailed bodies or no body for me anymore. I know, I know, in the past I’ve championed Lexan bodies [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – The Bad Apple

Every club has them. You know. The guy that either is at best annoying yet tolerable; at worst can ruin your group completely. These people are a cancer. The r/c world has largely stereotyped this character as the long standing, insufferable racer. And while it’s true that I’ve dealt with many a racer like this, it’s more the case that ANY [...]

Axial RR10 Bomber

Axial RR10 Bomber Review

When the Axial RR10 Bomber was first announced, it was a bit of a surprise to many people. Of course we were more than eager to get our hands on their latest ride, and put it to the test. As you can see, during our testing we had all sorts of weather, so there were plenty of opportunities to push [...]
