Redcat GEN9 Scout 800A

Review: Redcat Gen9 International Scout 800A

After years of waiting, the predecessor to the Redcat Gen8 has finally arrived. As the proud owner of three Gen8/Gen8 P.A.C.K. rigs, I was thrilled to find out that Redcat was shifting its focus back to trail trucks with the release of the Gen9 International Scout 800A. And I was ecstatic when they shipped a pre-release model my way for [...]

Losing Grip – SamixRC TRX4 brass upgrades review

One of the easiest ways of improving your rigs crawling performance is to move its center of gravity closer to the ground by adding weight down low. The further down, the better. In other words: think around the axles. Portal covers, C-hubs, knuckles, differential covers and such. There’s numerous brass options available, and I have had the pleasure of trying [...]

Review – Powerhobby 729MBL Brushless Waterproof Servo

A few weeks ago we received a new 729MBL Brushless Waterproof Servo from Powerhobby for review purposes.

Losing grip – Club5Racing accessories review

We all want a good looking car standing out from the crowd, and while a custom paint job requires a fair bit of work and skill, boosting the look with accessories do not. Also, it’s basically fool proof. A custom bumper simply cannot be messed up the same way as a paint job can. As I was planning my TRX-4 2021 [...]

Review: Injora’s 1.0” 9-spoke Deep Dish Stamped Steel Be…

I’m no stranger to R/C upgrades, especially those for my collection of crawlers and trail rigs. While I try to experiment with different brands and upgrade options, there are times when I find an upgrade that just works, and I end up using it over and over (and over) again.
