Tamiya Comical Grasshopper WR-02CB Review

How many people have become hobbyists because of the Tamiya Grasshopper? We don’t have a precise answer for that, but we do know it was a whole lot of people. The original Grasshopper was a giant success, now Tamiya has come up with a Comical Grasshopper. The Comical Grasshopper rides on Tamiya’s WR-02CB chassis and was designed for fun, not [...]

Arrma Notorious Review

ARRMA announced the Notoriuos 6S Stunt Truck a few weeks ago and now it is finally available. Being similar to its brother Outcast, it was specifically designed to please your bashing needs. Flips, wheelies, and giant air time are in its genes, but is it really a worthy machine for extreme bashing? Read on to find out… From: ARRMA RC Direct Link: [...]

RC4WD 1:10 DEFENDER D110 RTR Review

RC4WD has an impressive line of RTRs, kits and accessories; there is no doubt about that. When we got the chance to get our tentacles on the RC4WD Defender D110 RTR and we jumped on it!

This is what Chevy fans have been waiting for, the Axial SCX10 II 1969 Chevrolet Blazer. Hitting a scale home run with the beautifully detailed 1969 Chevrolet Blazer body. Not only does the 1969 Blazer look fantastic but preforms like the find tuned machine it was meant to be. We put the Axial 1969 Blazer through tough and extreme punishment. [...]

LOSI Tenacity MT Monster Truck Review

LOSI, once a brand for racers only, is now a company known as much for great bash machines. Over the last few weeks we’ve been driving, jumping, crashing, and generally abusing the Tenacity MT Monster Truck. It is a pure basher with big tires, 4wd, and AVC stability control.

The newest truck to be released in Horizon Hobby’s Vaterra line is a 1968 Ford F-100 Ascender.

The war at the top of bash mountain is beyond fierce.
