Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer Review

Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer Review

Over the last half decade we’ve seen scale realism go from taking a backseat to performance, to becoming the number 1 thing that consumers demand. Initially it started in the rock crawling scene, now it is everywhere. A great example of this is the new Traxxas Unlimited Desert Racer. The Traxxas UDR was designed for incredible scale looks on the [...]

DHK Hunter BL Review

DHK Hobby Hunter BL SCT Review

Across the globe the DHK Hobby Hunter BL short course truck is well known, but not so much here in America. A few months ago HRP Distributing started bringing DHK into the states so that the American bashing crowd could find out what’s up.

Losi LST 3XL-E Monster Truck Review

Losi LST 3XL-E Monster Truck Review

The war at the top of bash mountain is beyond fierce. You’ve got large scale short course trucks, you’ve got massively over-powered 1/8 monster trucks, you’ve got low slung truggies that seem to be glued to the ground in the corners, etc. One of the trucks at the top for Losi is the LST 3XL-E from Horizon Hobby. The LST [...]

DHK Hobby Maximus Monster Truck Review

After reviewing a couple of other trucks from DHK, we finally got a shot at one of their 8th scalers. A few weeks ago we started testing the 1/8th RTR DHK Hobby Maximus Monster Truck to see how it stacks up to its competition. The Maximus sports quite the affordable price point, we wanted to see if the truck was [...]

Redcat Landslide XTE Review

Redcat Racing Landslide XTE Monster Truck Review

After reviewing a couple of higher-end Team Redcat trucks, we discovered that Recat isn’t messing around. Their 1/8 monster truck and 1/10 Team Redcat SCT were both solid trucks, clearly capable of running with the best in their classes. Recently, we started driving the Redcat Landslide XTE monster truck. The Landslide is part of Redcat’s normal line-up of bash vehicles, [...]

Traxxas E-Revo 2.0 Review

Traxxas E-Revo 2.0 Review

In the beginning, the Traxxas Revo was a nitro powered monster truck that set new standards for performance. Soon, brushless was taking over everything and the E-Revo was released. The electric form of the Revo was even more extreme, going even faster, and jumping even higher. It has just been a few weeks since the Traxxas E-Revo 2.0 was announced, [...]

New from Team Redcat is the TR-SC10E short course truck. As this truck is part of the Team Redcat line-up, it is aimed at the serious basher.

2018 is a big year for Maverick RC. As HPI Racing’s entry level line-up, Maverick is working hard to make a big impression here in the states. We’ve been bashing and thrashing their Strada Brushless DT for several weeks now. With a bold brushless power system and a nicely scale roll cage, how did it stack up? How fast did [...]

ECX Barrage Doomsday Review

ECX Barrage Doomsday Review

When ECX announced the Barrage Doomsday from Horizon Hobby our mouths dropped! We had never seen a vehicle quite like it before. Part monster truck, part crawler, and sporting a hefty dose of Mad Max, the Doomsday is one of the most unique looking trucks to hit the market in a long time. Over the last few months we’ve been beating [...]

HPI Racing Ken Block Hoonicorn Review

HPI Racing Ken Block Hoonicorn RS4 Sport 3 Review

From the first time we saw the HPI Racing Ken Block Hoonicorn we were amazed by how it looked. Not only is it a great representation of Block’s full sized car, but it also comes on HPI’s RS4 Sport 3 chassis. After receiving a test unit, we’ve been bashing it non-stop. How well does it hold up? How easy is [...]

Kyosho Mad Crusher VE Review

You see, the Mad Crusher comes with two solid axles, plus it does not have a center diff. If you are looking for a true monster trucking experience, is the Mad Crusher the bomb or a bust? Does it have [...]
