Losing grip – Being rational on rotational inertia

In the never ending pursuit of speed, Control and precision, lightweight front axles entered the game a little while ago.

A lot of you readers will be familiar with the 1:2 ratio: shaving a pound from the tires is the [...]

Losing grip – YD-2 Beast Mode

Sometimes in even places as random as columns on RC drifting, something I am positively certain Mr Mills never would have [...]

I hope Brian will forgive me this transgression, but considering that he so far has [...]

Losing Grip – Gone cheesy

Did you watch the video Traxxas released for Father’s Day, almost two weeks ago? This one. On Father’s Day, as it were. I usually watch every Traxxas video as soon as I see them anounced on BigSquid, but not this one. The title was just a tad too cheesy for me: ”Dad & Daughter TRX-4 Hill Climb”. Too obvious. Dad [...]
