Everybody’s Scalin’ – The Deal with Axle Tubes

Earlier this week Gmade announced they were releasing factory axle tube weights for their Sawback trucks and it got me thinking – hey, I’ve never talked about axle tubes! In all the popular scaler axle housings, the space between your pumpkin gears and axle tip is typically empty, save for the dog bone. The axle tube inserts into this area, therefore [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – DIY

For my money, one of the coolest things about the scaling genre is that even though it’s become super popular, with so many RTR’s readily available…it’s still a very Do It Yourself (DIY) type of thing. I’m not even really talking about the mass influx of kits. Yes, they are popular, but the same could be said about that in regards to [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – Getting the Kids Involved

I think the most overlooked positive aspect of scaling is how kid friendly it is. There always seems to be a youngster or two tagging along at nearly any trail run I attend, all with wildly varying ages. Heck, my 4 year old daughter loves it when Daddy takes her along to wheel a review rig. The cool looks of a modern scale [...]
