Monster Truck Madness – Changing of the Guard

Hey all, happy Thursday! Last weekend the rain FINALLY relented and I got to go monster truck racing for the first time since March. Crazy that it’s almost 4th of July and I’ve had only two competition weekends this year, but dems da breaks I suppose. I’ve written in the past about how the Losi LMT was starting to become a dominant [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Gone Pullin’

Hey gang, happy Thursday to ya’ll! Before getting to the topic at hand this week, one that is very much non-r/c related, I wanted to quickly point out that the post I made about wanting a heavy duty big rig a few weeks back apparently came at a very good time. That Traxxas Flatbed Hauler is going to be PERFECT to [...]

Monster Truck Madness - Small Scale Retro Monster Trucks, An…

Last week the crew at Horizon announced the retro-styled Losi 1/16 Mini JRX 2WD Buggy and it took the internet by storm. A LOT of people were excited by this retro-styled release, and the low price of admission had hobbyists backing up their interest with their pocket books as apparently pre-orders were extremely strong. Hey, I want one of these too [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Heavy Truckin’

Hello everyone, happy Thursday to yas! Two weeks ago, after being frustrated by yet another rain shower keeping me indoors, I started playing Snowrunner on my new Xbox. Let me be a bit clearer- started playing it AGAIN. I was huge into the game when the pandemic hit but hadn’t touched it since the end of 2020. Many updates have been [...]

Monster Truck Madness - Giant Primal RC Grave Digger Coming …

Hey folks, welcome to your weekly Monster Truck Madness! I’m usually not one for talking about an announcement of an announcement, but I’ll make an exception for the upcoming Primal RC 1/5 Scale Grave Digger. The Primal R/C Raminator was a ton of fun when I got to drive a previous generation of the rig, and them landing the Monster Jam license [...]

Monster Truck Madness - JAWS EVO RC 4x4 Pulling Truck Chassi…

This week in the MTM I wanted to share some r/c pulling news with you. The folks at Sutton Motorsports & Machine have announced that their latest generation r/c pulling chassis, the JAWS EVO, has been updated. The EVO is designed for both performance and scale looks. It’s very similar in appearance to what you’d see underneath the fiberglass body of a [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Reenacting Road House

Road House is one of the best ’80s movies. Featuring an in-his-prime Patrick Swayze as a tough bouncer, a gruff Sam Elliott as his mentor, a smokin’ Kelly Lynch as the town Doctor, Ben Gazzara as the evil town business magnate, and a host of other cast members that even includes legendary pro wrestler Terry Funk, it’s hard to find [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Buyin’ and Sellin’

Hello everyone, Happy Thursday. There’s a very timely e-mail that just came in today, so let’s get right to it. Hi Doug, nice to email meet you. Got a question for you: I’m super intrigued by Horizon Hobby’s sale on the Losi LMT roller—$260 until 4/22 or supplies run out. However, I’m skeptical. Why the deep discount? Anything (like a V2, for [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Haulin’ the Mail

Never in my wildest dreams did I think that the r/c monster truck scene would be so popular so as to support scale hauler tires, but it’s good to be wrong sometimes. Last week the JConcepts Transporter tire was announced, as well as the accompanying Tribute Transport wheel that goes with it. A full sized monster truck spends the vast majority of [...]

Monster Truck Madness - Playskool SST Monster Trucks and Pul…

The Playskool brand is one of the longest running lines of toys in the world. These days, they are best known for brightly colored baby-playthings. It wasn’t always this way though. Playskool is/was responsible for arguably the coolest line of toy trucks that ever existed- the SST (Super Size Trucks) line back in the 80’s. This series featured battery operated vehicles [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Wakin’ Up the LMT

I just competed in my first racing event of the 2022 season this past weekend, so let’s talk about all of those Losi LMT changes I made recently. Here are several articles discussing this build. The TL;DR version is this- all the Treal, JConcepts, BowHouse RC and Spektrum goodies make my LMT feel like a COMPLETELY different vehicle than it was [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Low CG LMT with BowHouse RC Goodies

Hello everyone, happy Thursday! My 2022 racing season starts off this upcoming weekend, and my Losi LMT is in the shop for one last set of upgrades before hitting the track! The stock battery tray sits very high at the rear of the vehicle. BowHouse RC makes an LCG battery tray to rectify this issue. Since I’d be lowering the battery box, I [...]
