RC Bashers and racers find themselves in many different types of places while bashing. It can be the backyard, a parking lot, a school, wherever. When you are out there with an electric vehicle, you don’t always have enough charged batteries to last you the whole time you want to bash, and you don’t always have [...]

I’ll get right down to the most important thing that happened this week in rc. Brian, CEO/CFO/C-Everything-O at BigSquidRC showed that not only does he have mad skillz on an rc drag track, but showed mad crawling skillz as well by winning his first crawling event over the weekend. Crawling world watch out!! Brian likes to get into something new and [...]
Today was event #2 of 4 in the Suburban Chicago Rock Crawlers point series. Todays RC Rock Crawling event was held at HobbyTown USA – Orland Park. There was a lot of talk about this course early on since nobody had really run on it… ever. Nobody really knew what to expect from [...]
File this under the ‘better late then never’ category, Duratrax now has a hop-up suspension conversion kit for the 1/18th scale Vendetta. I’m a big fan of the Durratrax Vendetta, and an even bigger fan of the Vendetta ST. (Check our reviews) I’m glad to see them supporting the vehicles. I can only hope they [...]

Besides being stronger, they also save 32 grams of [...]

While this probably isn’t the top Venom news story of the day, I think it’s a good one. Venom has just announced this RC Transmitter Bag with detachable cooler! At first though.. you are probably thinking.. WHAT THE?! But thinking about it a little more, I own a expensive transmitter that I like to keep protected, [...]
This is one of the coolest RC Rock Crawling bodies I have seen. This is the new Helios from Pro-Line Racing. It fits the Axial Scorpion as well as the HPI Wheely King. It looks a little like a vehicle from a Halo video game. It meets the minimum dimensions for competition, and is very [...]
After popping a fresh bottle of Dom Perignon 99′, I sat down to realize that few things in life are appreciated as much as they should be. I appreciate that in the last few weeks there were actually some really cool products introduced to the rc world, because this week nothing of real note was shown. I’d guess the “biggest” [...]
