Everybody’s Scalin’ – Recommendation For Your First Scaler

Without a doubt, the absolute number one type of question we get from readers is “What vehicle should I get?”, or a slight variation of that. If you’ve ever read our Thursday “Ask Cubby” thing then you know what I’m talking about. With tax return season in full swing I figure now is a good time to answer the variation of [...]


Axial Deadbolt SCX10 RTR Unboxing Pictures

It was time to break open the new Axial SCX10 Deadbolt RTR! People were such big fans of the Deadbolt body on the AX10, Axial decided to bring the scale look to the SCX10 as well! The green is REALLY green. When we first saw the parts tree, we thought.. ‘Hey! This was supposed to be a RTR!’ But it’s [...]

Axial Deadbolt Mega Truck Conversion: Part 1

Being a scale/crawler dude can be tough when you are surrounded by speed demons like the majority of Big Squid staffers. Let’s be honest with ourselves here – scalers aren’t exactly known for high speed thrills. I think Cubby wanted to kill me when I built the Axial RECON G6 SCX10 for review and put in a slow 18.5 crawler [...]


Everybody’s Scalin’ For the Weekend – Viva La Mega Truck
