Ever wanted to move mountains? You can. Losi has this little plastic mountain designed for rock crawling with your littlest rock crawlers (such as the Losi 1:24 Micro Rock Crawler). I honestly don't think this is a must-have for me (and $25.00 for a plastic mountain seems a bit much). If you are really into micro rock crawling and don't want to carry a bunch of rocks or desk-size obstacles around with you, you might like this Micro Terrain Mountain. It measures 16x28 inches by 10 inches high so it's not tiny but still portable (or movable).
Traxxas is releasing (May 25) a 1:16 scale brushless race truck replica of the #18 Toyota Tundra that Kyle Busch drove in the winning 2010 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
"...Kyle raced Chicagoland, Talladega, and Homestead with Traxxas sponsorship and took the checkered flag every time he flew Traxxas colors."
Sure, the paint job is great but what we really care about it what's under the hood (or under the whole body in the case of an RC). Also available with a Titan 550 brushed motor, get the specs on this 4WD, RTR truck featuring "Velineon® Brushless Power with VXL-3m speed control."
There's also a Kyle Busch edition of the Slash for short course or off-road action.
Will you be taking to the streets (or the dirt) with Kyle Busch?
We've had a bit of rain but it's mostly dry where I am. Perfect weather for some backyard bashing or some sporting activities (with RCs of course).
Unfortunately I won't be doing any flying. The wind has been almost non-stop and strong. But if you've got a pool, your RC games can take to the water.
What RC games are you creating to take advantage of good or bad weather? Tell us about 'em.
Your shocks may be the first thing you think about when considering your suspension, but there are other factors you need to take into consideration as well. The tilt of your tires and the center of gravity, for example, also have a role in getting the best performance from your RC. Here's what you need to know about the basics of RC Suspension Tuning with pointers to more detailed information when the manufacturer's recommendations aren't good enough.
