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’ – How Important Is Licensing to You?

Official licensing is something that’s been around as long as the hobby itself. Whether it’s a Ford Ranger monster truck, a Ferrari pan car or a Toyota rock crawler, both manufacturer and consumer have flocked to smaller representations of the real thing.

Everybody’s Scalin’ – The Traxxas Scaler

You guys knew I’d be talking about the Traxxas truck this week, right? When I first saw the photos making their rounds last weekend, I actually thought it was a hoax at first. People have done this several times in regards to Traxxas releasing a scaler. It took awhile before I could confirm it was real, but yes, it was indeed. I [...]

Everybody's Scalin' - 2.4 ghz Radios Made Modern Scaling Pos…

I was recently at a local racing facility bumming around when I happened to see a relic of a bygone era hanging on the wall- a Frequency Board. That really brought back memories! For those unaware of what a frequency board is/was, it’s a big piece of wood that has clothespins hanging on it. Each section is labeled with a specific frequency of [...]

Monster Truck Madness #3 – Lock & Load

Whether you have a Clod or shaft truck, differential preference seems to be the super important subject that no one really talks about. It’s just not as sexy as discussing, say, brushless options or what tires to use. Locked, open, one axle locked and the other open, limited slip…so many choices! Before getting into the r/c discussion, let’s talk about how [...]
