Monster Truck Madness – Stocking Stuffer Tools

Hey folks, and Happy December 1st! Those of you who are either shopping for an r/c nut or that ARE an r/c nut looking to give cheap gift ideas to friends/family, you are in luck today as I’m about to dish!

Monster Truck Madness – Holiday Weekend Musings

Greetings all, and Happy 4th of July weekend to our US readers! I’m settling in for a long weekend of music, fireworks and some trigger time on my basher monsters. But before that? Some ramblin’. Pretty much all retail stores are running big 4th of July sales, and the r/c world is no different! Tower Hobbies, Horizon Hobby and various other hobby [...]


Monster Truck Madness – The Losi LMT is Fitting In

Hey all, how you doin’? I’m fresh off a scorching weekend that saw my club, Trigger King R/C, finish our seventh year of racing in the hot midwestern Summer.

I scoped out David H.’s killer backyard track when he was posting about it on one of the solid axle monster truck groups that I [...]

The bigger the tires get, the better of an upgrade this is. My criteria for judging whether a servo is good or not is fairly simple – can it turn the tires with ease [...]


Monster Truck Madness #15 – Crush Cars

One of the great secrets of hardcore r/c monster truckers; where do our crush cars come from?. It’s by far the number one question that I field from YouTube viewers on my Trigger King channel….well, right after “what do these cost?!”. I also get e-mail from readers on here as well, when they see them in pictures. I’ll answer that in [...]
