EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – AXIALFEST BADLANDS 2022 PHOTOS!

Axialfest Badlands 2022 was a polar opposite from 2021. 2021 was a mud fest filled with rain, when this year’s Axialfest Badlands was dry and hot. And that’s just the weather, this year’s event had more venders, along with one of the biggest night runs I have ever seen. The dry conditions made for fantastic crawling in the quarry with [...]

RC4WD TRAILFINDER 2 LWB 1980 TOYOTA LAND CRUISER FJ55 LEXAN …

The RC4WD Trailfinder 2 LWB kit with the 1980 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ55 Lexan body has had some mixed reviews. RC4WD is known for scale hard bodies, so naturally people were taken back when they found out that the new FJ55 body was lexan. We were just as surprised when the rig arrived at the Big Squid RC office but [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – BEAT THE CREEK!

Beat The Creek is held in the charming southern town of Maysville, Kentucky. The town is filled with beautiful landscapes, farmland, and of course the property of Joe and Sue Hauke. Joe and his family open up their private property to host Beat The Creek.  If that doesn’t say Southern Hospitality, then I don’t know what will. I can deal [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – FMS TYPE82E RTR 1/12 BEETLE TRAIL RUN

The ROCHobby TYPE82E RTR 1/12 Beetle is one of FMS’s top scale rigs. Opening doors, hood, trunk, working fan belt, detailed interior, and the ability to switch from 2wd to 4wd along with a high and low gear adds up to a wicked scale rig. When our running video came out, I felt like the film could have been better. [...]

It’s made a trip to Kentucky, Horizon Fest, and USTE 2022. But with that much travel and wheel time on any rig will start to show no matter [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – TIRES AND FOAMS FOR THE DODGE!

Farm Truck 2 has been a killer rig so far. From its maiden voyage at USTE 2022, to the miles it has driven in Juicebox Off-Road Park, the truck still drives like its brand new. Haven’t even had any bugs to work out, but when you use a GCM Racing Cmax 2 Chassis, Holmes Hobbies Crawlmaster, and a REEFS RC [...]
