Axial Racing and Horizon Hobby was kind enough to hook us up with the new Axial Wraith 1.9″ RTR, and in person it’s a real stunner.

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

So a very interesting debt popped up the other day on one of the many Facebook pages I am in. The post was simple, some one asking to see pics of Trail rigs and Crawlers. And throughout the post I could see a lot of people have different views on what’s a trail rig and what’s a Crawler. Me personally [...]

RC4WD has an impressive line of RTRs, kits and accessories; there is no doubt about that. When we got the chance to get our tentacles on the RC4WD Defender D110 RTR and we jumped on it!

Everybody’s Scalin’ – It’s Friggin’ Hot

I’m no sissy when it comes to scaling in the elements. I’ve done G6 competitions in the sweltering heat and long trail runs in zero degree weather with the snow falling. It’s all part of the game. Still, the heat wave that has engulfed the midwest for the last two weeks has me crying uncle. I had been laying low, but last [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – They Call Me the Squeaker

We’ve all been on a run with The Squeaker. You know, the person whose vehicle makes an incessant SKREE SKREE SKREE on every revolution of the motor.
