Monster Truck Madness – Playin’ the Slots

I dunno about you all, but this time of year I always get nostalgic for slot cars. Some of my favorite Christmas presents back in the day were slot car sets. Heck, in recent years I even flirted with the new high-tech digital tracks (very fun!) by buying a layout. So imagine how cool it was to hear of the amazing [...]

Hello gang, and a very Happy Thanksgiving to those of you reading in the US! Due to the holiday season going full swing, I’m seeing e-mails and discussion on the monster truck group pages where prospective r/c monster truckers are asking which Grave Digger they should buy, either for themselves or (as most of the discourse I’ve personally seen) as a [...]

Monster Truck Madness – A Year of the LMT

Greetings gang, and welcome to the last “pre-holiday season” MTM! I use the quotes because these days, holiday season starts November 1st and NOT on the day after Thanksgiving as in years past! (and side-note, for those looking to shop early, today was a heck of a day with two big releases in the hobby!). Last year at this time I [...]

Monster Truck Madness – The Losi LMT is Fitting In

Hey all, how you doin’? I’m fresh off a scorching weekend that saw my club, Trigger King R/C, finish our seventh year of racing in the hot midwestern Summer. We started our series back in the Spring and ran outdoors on dirt. This season was particularly interesting because it was the first since, well, late 2016 when a significantly new platform [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Loose Screws

It’s funny that no-matter how experienced one thinks they may be in this hobby, there’s always a boneheaded mistake you can make that will knock you down a few pegs. Case-in-point, me last weekend. I’ve been heading up the Arrma 1/8 Outcast 6S BLX 4WD EXtreme Bash Stunt Truck RTR review, and over the weekend I was at a local park doing [...]
