Kershaw Designs X-Maxx Brushless LiPo Review

Review - Kershaw Designs Traxxas X-Maxx Brushless/LiPo Upgra…

Hey, in case you didn’t get the memo, the Traxxas X-Maxx is a big deal now days, not only in size but in the way it has taken off with the bash crowd. The X-Maxx pretty much rocks out of the box, with one exception, a watered down power system. While the stock brushless system has decent power, it is [...]

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 [...]

Assuming you aren’t living on Mars, you’ve probably noticed that the Traxxas X-Maxx has taken the bashing world by storm.

Kyosho 1970 Dodge Charger Review

Everything we have posted about the Kyosho 1970 Dodge Charger has gotten a lot of hits. In fact, more hits than any on-road car in recent memory. Is that due to its tough muscle car look? Maybe it’s due to the Orion dDrive system that sits under the hood? We have been bashing the daylights out of our Kyosho test unit [...]
