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! What really interested me is the long wheel base and obviously the scale factor. So, what makes the D110 different from other Defenders? Only [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – “AT DAWN, WE CRAWL!”

Picking the right time of day to go out trailing or crawling can impact your experience in multiple ways. I for one prefer going early in the morning. The way I see it is that it’s no different than someone waking up at four in the morning to go hunting or fishing but instead of grabbing a tacklebox or rifle [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ RACE DAY!

Race day brings out so many emotions in everybody. Excitement, nervousness, anxiousness, joy and even sadness. It’s exciting to see how your car will handle after weeks of preparation and tuning. Nervousness of the unknown, whether it be how you’re going to place, will your car make it through the race, or will you have a mechanical failure. Anxiously waiting [...]

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.

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ VTA CAR

In the world of on-road RC racing the VTA class is definitely one of my favorites. The vehicles used for the VTA class remind me a lot of old school NASCAR’s. Nowadays if you see a Nascar without the stickers on it, it would be hard to tell what model it is. But back in the day there was no [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ Batmobile

Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight? The Batmobile is the most iconic superhero vehicle on the planet. The 1966 Batmobile really started it all. Fast forward to 1989, which in my opinion, is the best looking Batmobile ever made, the Michael Keaton Batmobile. Next, in 1995 we had the Val Kilmer Batman Forever Batmobile. The [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ G6 Event

Last Sunday I attended a G6 event that the Martucky Rc crew put on in Marseilles Illinois. I have done competitions before but I have to say, G6 comps are my favorite. Unlike regular crawler comps, a G6 is more spread out, more like a trail run. The boys from the Martucky crew did a fantastic job setting up the [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’- Lights, Camera, Action!

Anytime I do research on buying a new rig I always go to YouTube and watch some videos of them in action. Pictures are great and all but to get a true sense of how the vehicle will actually handle you have to see a video. Not to mention, it’s a great bathroom past time. When I am filming for [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ Spotlight “beetle”

I always like to see when people mirror their 1:10 vehicles to look like their 1.1 vehicles. This Everybody’s Scalin’ Spotlight is all about that. Straight out of Plano Texas, Lane Muropa has achieved the scale mirror trick with his Volkswagen Beetle. Whenever I see an old Beetle or Punch Buggie I always think of Herbie the Love Bug. But [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ Hauling Scale

Last Friday night I was doing some window shopping on Facebook marketplace; I have a tendency to do this a lot. Even when I’m not in the market for a new vehicle I still like seeing what’s out there for sale. Five minutes into my search I found a Tamiya Globeliner for a very reasonable price. I have always thought [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ Mud Bog!

I think it’s safe to say that all of us have that little kid inside of us. Being dialed into your inner child and this hobby go hand-in-hand; playing in the mud is no different. Yes, it is extremely messy, but the joy you get out of it is well worth it. If you have never been to a Mud [...]
