Everybody’s Scalin’ Battle Damage!

A beat-up truck with dents and rust will actually turn my head faster than seeing a pristine shelf Queen.

Even the old crash test dummy car, you would run [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ Group Therapy

Joining a RC club can make your RC experience 100 times better. Just like anything, when you get together with a group of people who all share common interest it’s a lot of fun. Try talking to your non-RC friends about the new tires or servo that are coming out and I’m pretty sure you’ll just get a blank stare. [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ Spotlight Jeep Rod

A few weeks ago I mentioned doing a fan spotlight. Once a month or so I will pick someone who has scale or custom build. The amount of fabricating and out of the box thinking that goes into any custom build is amazing. A lot of trial and error, but the end result is worth it. Eli Saa and his [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ RC4WD saves the day!

For a lot longer than I would like to admit I have been getting frustrated trying to mount my Pro-Line Racing BF Goodrich all-terrain KO2 tires on a set of RC4WD 1.9 wagon wheels. I finally found out I needed the inner beadlock rings from RC4WD to work with Pro-Line tires; which I will be renaming lifesavers! I learned a [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – OPEN SEASON!

A lot of work went into opening day; three months of planning and a month of backbreaking labor. Every rock, scale building, and obstacles carefully placed. To be honest, at one point I started having doubts. I started asking myself did I take on too much, am I going to be able to accomplish the goals I had set for [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’_ WEEKEND WITH GELANDE II CRUISER

  There’s something satisfying about breathing new life into a RC vehicle that hasn’t been used in a while. I was able to get my hands on the RC four-wheel-drive Gelande 2 that Cubby reviewed.  Within 10 minutes of running this truck it’s become my favorite vehicle. The scale details on the vehicle are outstanding; from a full interior to even [...]

I’m guessing it was the airplane food, but apparently the post never went live. This is that post. Huge apologies for the [...]
