Monster Truck Madness - Racing at the Hall Bros Shop in Nove…

One of the most special things about the r/c solid axle monster truck scene is how the full scale motorsport is so closely associated and embedded within the 1/10 scale version. Some of the biggest events of the r/c monster truck calendar take place at the homes of some of the biggest names in the sport. Bigfoot and Grave Digger [...]

Monster Truck Madness – A Real Hullabaloo

Greetings, all! I spent the last weekend racing monster trucks, and what a weekend it was. At the Trigger King R/C Summer Event #2 we had some 100+ monster trucks show up. So much fun! I’m still recovering. Sun burn, broken parts, scrambled brain- you know the drill! Sooooo, something more rambly instead of coherent this week. I plan to follow-up on [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Putting Some Pep Into An Axial SMT10

Had some good e-mails in the queue, so this week I wanna catch up on them here. Hey Doug, I read your articles on Big Squid and follow your Trigger King Youtube page and enjoy all of it. I have an SMT10 that I use for bashing and I’m having some trouble finding some info on wheelies. I have the updated 2020 [...]

Monster Truck Madness – It’s More Fun with Friends

With the Losi LMT about to be released to the masses in early 2021, methinks that that, combined with (hopefully) large gatherings being allowed again by the time weather starts to warm, we are headed towards a banner year for solid axle monster truck racing. I feel like whether it’s this platform or the Trigger King YouTube channel, I’m pretty in [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Season’s End

This past weekend, my monster truck club Trigger King R/C ended our 2020 outdoor season. We barely got it in, as the forecast was jumping around all week. The final race of the year was held in 45 degree weather with heavy cloud cover. Despite being a chilly day, it was a lot of fun! I had the best racing day [...]

Monster Truck Madness - JConcepts Silent Speed 17T Motor Spo…

Brushless motors have been the defacto thing in r/c racing and bashing ever since the technology started to become affordable in the mid to late aughts. The combination of high speed with minimal maintenance sure made it seem like brushed motors were destined to become a thing of radio control’s past, relegated to budget minded ready-to-run vehicles only. A funny thing [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Diff Thoughts

Hey folks, sorry for the late column this week. Been incredibly busy with house stuff/vacation! This week I want to briefly touch upon monster truck differentials. Way back when I started writing the weekly MTM here, one of my first was about locked vs. unlocked differentials in solid axle monsters. It was column #3 to be exact. For those not wanting to [...]

Monster Truck Madness – I Got the Blues

I got the blues. The JConcepts Renegade blues, that is. Or to be even more specific, blue compound JConcepts Renegades. Yes, after nearly a year of racing on cement due to not having a location suitable for racing monster trucks on dirt, my rigs are finally going to get to go to battle on the stuff monsters were meant to be [...]

While the prospect of living in perpetual outdoor racing weather is exciting, I’m not lot looking forward to leaving all of my r/c buddies, [...]

A few months back, I had the pleasure of attending the BIGFOOT 4×4 Open House and helped to put on the r/c monster truck portion of that event. You can read my coverage of it right here. During the event, we got introduced to the folks at Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live, who filmed some of our competition for use in [...]

Monster Truck Madness – Routine Maintenance

After a detour taking me into video game review territory last week, I’m back on terra firma. Yes, time for some old fashioned r/c discussion. To start things off, I know I’ve talked about trying to get my hands on one of the new CEN Racing solid axle monsters (B50 and HL150, respectively) for awhile now, so I’m happy to say [...]
