Everybody’s Scalin’ – 3S or 2S?

Whenever it comes to that subject, the discussion usually centers on whether your electronics can handle it or not. Rarely are the tires a concern…but they should be! Waterlogged tires can really drag down the performance of your rig. They can get really [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – All the Wrong Places

As I was finishing up photography on our Marlin Crawler Trail Finder 2 review last week (p.s. the link for that is here, it’s a truck that I like A LOT), my stomach sank as I was walking back to my car.
