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.

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.

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 [...]

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.

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 [...]

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 [...]

Greetings everyone and welcome to another edition of Monster Truck Madness! The great looking retro truck that’s being shown off here was built by my friend Lonny Childress. When talking about the build with him, the subject of foams came up. Specifically, the lack of them. The conversation reminded me that it was something I wanted to touch on here! If you [...]
