EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – RC4WD BAYWATCH TRUCK

What’s up everybody, with USTE 19 only 7 days away I figured it would be a good time to reveal my latest build. I would actually call it more of a theme build and not a full-blown build. During those few days of brutal cold weather I found myself binge watching Baywatch. Now, back in its hay day Baywatch was [...]

Everybody’s Scalin’ – So Many Projects

Happy Friday all ye faithful. This is, without a doubt, THE best time of the year to go scaling.
