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.

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 – Old School Goodness

I’m one of those people that constantly wishes I could get off of Facebook because I absolutely hate reading crazy political conspiracies posted shared by someone’s uncle, but I also know I’ll never be able to get off it since they effectively replaced message boards with their group pages many years ago.
