TRAXXAS TRX-6 Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6 – REVIEW

Well, someone had to go and wake up the sleeping giant that is Traxxas. A few weeks ago Traxxas dropped a bombshell otherwise known as the TRX-6 Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6. The pictures alone sparked up a fire of conversation that consumed anything else that was happening in the scale world. So how did Traxxas do with their first [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – DSM 0FF-ROAD GREAT LAKES GAUNTLET

Last weekend I took a little road trip to Saranac Michigan for the DSM Off-road Great Lakes Gauntlet. This event is only 3 years old, yet has a following like it has been going on for 6 years. My buddies have been telling me about it for a year now so I made sure to keep my calendar clear for [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – I SPY CONTEST.

What’s going on everyone. For as long as Big Squid has been around there have been stickers. The oldest Big Squid sticker I have is about 6 years old and still looking good on my air compressor. I started to think about all the stickers we hand out at events and where they end up. Why not have a little [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – TRAXFORMERS

Has anyone seen any RTR 6×6’s lately? It’s going to be an all out crawler war this Christmas with Traxxas coming out with the TRX-6. Fittingly enough I was already working on this weeks post before Traxxas did their “mic drop” and got the crawler world in a feeding frenzy. As soon as we know more info about the Traxxas [...]

NEW Big Squid RC Merch!

It’s been a while since we have updated our merch page, and at the last few events we have been at, people have been asking more and more for some new shirts, different sizes, and different options. Up until now, we have been doing limited runs (we can only afford to get so many done in advance), and when we [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – MOPAR IS BACK!

I want to start off this week’s edition of Everybody’s Scalin’ with some sad news. Over the week the scale crawling community had to say goodbye to a very talented builder and fan of Big Squid RC, Jason Pierola. Jason will be missed by more people then he could imagine. Rest in peace Jason, heroes are remembered but legends never [...]

EVERYBODY'S SCALIN' - TRAXXAS TRX-4 SPORT WITH TRAXX SET SPO…

A little bit ago Traxxas sent us the new TRX-4 Sport with TRAXX, and if you haven’t seen our unboxing go check it out! I was skeptical at first about the new version of the TRX-4, I honestly thought they just put the TRAXX set on the Sport and called it good. As you can tell in our unboxing I [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – PRO-LINE 1977 DODGE RAMCHARGER

Let’s jump right into the Pro-Line Racing 1977 Dodge Ramcharger body update! As much as I would have loved to be with Boss Man Brian for the Pro-Line Racing Unboxing Video I had a lot of scale off-road park issues to deal with. So, once I picked up the body it was a little over-whelming. Unlike most lexan bodies, the [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – PITBULL RC 100MM KRONIK SHOCKS

Pitbull RC has some great products already, so when they sent us the new Kronik Shocks we couldn’t wait to try them out. The on-the-fly ability the Kronik shocks have are great for all you comp folks out there. I chose to put the new shocks on the Axial Racing Wraith 1.9, being that they are 100mm shocks, I figured [...]
