Monster Truck Madness – An Outcast To All

Hey everyone, how’s it going? I’ve got some fun news- your boy is going to be heading up the review of the ARRMA Outcast Extreme Bash RTR! Interesting fact- I’ve never pulled trigger on any version of the Outcast. I’ve seen ’em in person multiple times since the original release of the truck, but I’ve never driven one. In fact, this will [...]

Monster Truck Madness - Racing at the Hall Bros Shop in Nove…

One of the most special things about the r/c solid axle monster truck scene is how the full scale motorsport is so closely associated and embedded within the 1/10 scale version. Some of the biggest events of the r/c monster truck calendar take place at the homes of some of the biggest names in the sport. Bigfoot and Grave Digger [...]

Monster Truck Madness – You’re a Firework

Greetings and an early Happy 4th to our American readers! The above pic was shot back in July 2017 when me and some buddies attempted to recreate Dennis Anderson’s “Mr. Destruction” wall of steel stunt in r/c form. We used an Axial SMT10 and a bunch of plastic cars, and it was a blast. I’d link video of it, but [...]

Monster Truck Madness - Marchon's Monster Truck Racing Slot …

Hey gang, happy Thursday! It’s slow around the office as pretty much everyone is making the trek to Axialfest. And you know what that means? I can slip something non-r/c related onto the site without repercussion from boss man, who is probably out setting up a trail section in Indiana with no internet service! This week I wanted to take a trip [...]

Monster Truck Madness - Spec Classes Are Not Long For This W…

Greetings gang, and happy Thursday. As someone who is heavily involved with racing solid axle monster trucks, watching the Losi LMT become integrated into the scene has been fascinating. My club, Trigger King, put together a “Losi LMT Spec Class” to run for 2021. Other organizations throughout the US have been running similar classes with similar rules, all with the goal to [...]

Monster Truck Madness – An Incredible Replica

Greetings, everyone! This week I’m bringing you an amazing build. Mike Bufka recently brought his incredible BIGFOOT #18 inspired “Mr. Bill” r/c monster truck to a Trigger King event, and I had to show ya’ll. The world of scale r/c and solid axle monster trucks are constantly blending together which results in some truly righteous projects. This is one of them. Mike [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Kings of Crunch and Drag Cars

Greetings gang, today I come to you with a hybrid column. A little bit of monster trucks, a little bit of drag cars. I am very caught up in the no-prep drag scene that’s exploded. Last year I built a Traxxas drag Bandit/Slash, but I’ve had eyes on the sweet Losi 22S ever since it was announced earlier this year (and [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Losi LMT Diff Tuning

Folks, it has taken me 3 months of competition but I have FINALLY got the tune-up I like on my Losi LMT. So many of you folks have asked about this via e-mail or via YouTube comments on the Trigger King page that I was getting very frustrated in not having an answer. Well, also the fact it was driving [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Trying to Figure This Out

Hey guys, happy Thursday! It’s a race weekend for me and I’m still trying to figure out how to tune the diffs on my Losi LMT. It’s fantastic that it’s highly tunable, but chasing that mythical race winning tune-up has been elusive. What’s caused it to be so tricky is that I’m racing this vehicle in a Spec Class where we have [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Scale Monster Jam-Style Obstacles

Hey gang, happy Thursday to you. This week in Monster Truck Madness I want to tackle an e-mail about scale monster jam style obstacles, as well as address a very funny gaffe. My LHS received an order of the Losi LMT’s last week and I am proud to finally join your ranks in wheeling a solid axle monster truck. While it’s [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Regulate

Hey all, hope the week is treating you well! Today I wanna talk about the JConcepts Regulator Clod Buster that I’ve been racing for the 2021 season. This truck was built by one of my best friends, Chris Blank (aka Claude Buster, his pen name for helping with BSRC reviews). He was kind enough to drop close to 1k on this truck [...]

Monster Truck Madness – A Real Hullabaloo

Greetings, all! I spent the last weekend racing monster trucks, and what a weekend it was. At the Trigger King R/C Summer Event #2 we had some 100+ monster trucks show up. So much fun! I’m still recovering. Sun burn, broken parts, scrambled brain- you know the drill! Sooooo, something more rambly instead of coherent this week. I plan to follow-up on [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Putting Some Pep Into An Axial SMT10

Had some good e-mails in the queue, so this week I wanna catch up on them here. Hey Doug, I read your articles on Big Squid and follow your Trigger King Youtube page and enjoy all of it. I have an SMT10 that I use for bashing and I’m having some trouble finding some info on wheelies. I have the updated 2020 [...]

Hey guys, more Losi LMT talk comin’ at you this week. Before that, in case you missed it I recently posted a review the LMT specific Pro-Line Demolisher Monster Truck Tires. Check it out if you haven’t! So I FINALLY got to get in some competition time on my LMT. During the same race day I was also wheeling old school [...]
