One thing I love doing with rc’s is jamming the biggest most powerful components I can find into them and seeing how fast it’ll go or how high it’ll fly. Here is short course truck that I’ve done just that, it was a Traxxas but now only has a few actual Traxxas bits on it. Shinning Star chassis, MIP axles, some cheap…
Whoops! Launched off of a 2' pile of mulch at around 50kmh, and didn’t exactly stick the landing.
After many headaches, I finally got it started up and running reliably.
Was able to keep my GoPro on my SCX10 with magnets, so I captured some good POV shots and turned it into another adventure video!
I didn’t film the last time because my GoPro was out of battery, despite me thinking it was charging. This time, however, I did charge it, and it was charged, and I filmed my little excursion through Mother Nature!
This is the PNW, it’s been especially moist recently. Perfect RC scaler weather if you ask me. So I took my new Axial SCX10 II out to a local park for some fun.
A 4.0 Jeep Cherokee XJ!
For owning a 1/8 scale solid-axle nitromethane-powered Formula Offroad-style RC monster truck with paddle tires, a 3-speed automatic transmission, and chain drive?
10/10ths makes me super Jelly. I want to go to there.
Finally got my ARRMA Raider XL Mega, essentially a short course truck with a buggy body and wheels. I want more batteries and a better charger than the stock one, but I’m too lazy to maintain LiPos, so NiMh batteries for me.
This car is tough, and though I don’t use it much these days, it was my first hobby grade car that I fixed, tore apart, and modified on my own. Before the RC18R came out, I wanted to drift, so after replacing some dogbones and a trip inside of a pool, I:
But it looks like one... Because it has an RC18T body. The rest is 100% Mini-T, and 100% awesome.
Tomorrow I’m heading to the mountains for a little snow hiking and photography. Decided to take my Axial Exo Terra with me and have some waterproof fun!
The TLR 22 is a serious racing buggy kit. It entered into the 2WD buggy racing scene and walked away with it. Watch Ultimate RC frontman Jang assemble one in this multi-part series!
Had a roller Mini-T for a couple of years now and have done nothing with it besides a servo and new shocks. Today I bought a powerful brushless motor to go in it. Now all I need is a radio, battery, and a body for it and it’s ready to go!
Made out of a relatively thick sheet of stainless. Looks awesome!
