Good news for our international customers!

We have added an inexpensive "Flat Rate" shipping option.  If your order can fit in a 8" x 5" x 2" (200 x 130 x 43mm) box, and weighs less than 4 lbs (1.8 kg), shipping will only cost $13.50.  We are really excited about this new development.   It is a huge step forward that cuts many countries' shipping costs by half or more.


As much as we strive for perfection on our website, sometimes we just fall short.  So there may be instances where items in your order do not qualify for this cheaper shipping, but you still will be presented with the Flat Rate shipping as a choice.  If you choose it, we will have to charge you for the difference to ship it.  However we will make an effort to notify you beforehand.

I had a chance to get my Tamiya Jeep Wrangler CC-01 and our Axial SCX10 out on the rocks at Canyon Lake, Texas this past weekend. The SCX10 is just as scale as it is capable on the rocks and I had a lot of fun trying its limits. I snapped a few shots of our SCX10 sporting an HPI Land Rover Defender 90 Lexan body which I painted for it last week. I also filmed the painting process and will have a video of that up on our YouTube channel soon. 

We are now carrying a full selection of scale lexan shells from HPI, Axial, and Pro-Line for the SCX10.

Here's a couple of shots from this weekend.

The new Traxxas Mini E-Revo has supplied us with some great filming opportunities, and you can bet this won't be the last Mini E-Revo video we produce.

This latest video features the Traxxas mini beast hitting a ramp at over 40MPH and back flipping over two Jeeps! You gotta see it to believe it! Click on the photo below to check out the video link.

 I'm happy to inform you that we have some RCP Link-N-Rocks on the way to us. If you have seen a shot of our track from the shop cam you'll notice that we've reconfigured it a bit so the infield is wide open. That will be the new home of our RCP pre-fabed rocks!

 In addition to RCP's track products, they are in process of manufacturing modular rocks for the RC crawling industry. The rocks can be used for in store display of RC crawling trucks, in store demo purposes of RC crawling trucks and set up for RC rock crawling competition courses. They can be used in the home, office, hobby store or corporate/trade show event. They are rated for  both indoor and outdoor use and weigh less than 8 lbs per rock pod.

 The rocks are made through a special process that gives the texture a realistic look and feel. The rocks offer excellent grip for all types of RC crawling rubber tires. There's nothing like being able to test out your suspension setup "indoors" before you hit the rocks at the comp!

It's getting harder these days to find XMODS other than the new "Streets" and we've been scouring the net looking for XMODS inventory.  We've come across some very interesting stuff out there!

Some of the more rare items we've come up with are some new (that's right, I said NEW) Gen 1's and EVO Trucks. We are planning on having these up on eBay this week, so keep your eyes peeled!

Here's a shot of just a few items we found.

 Frank thought it would be a good idea for me to film him doing a 2x3 F.E.T. job and pro-ready wires on a XMODS EVO Main board to show everyone how it's done. Now you can see if this is something you would want to attempt on your own, or send it in to the profesionals (Us, of course) to take care of it for you.

 Check out this link and see for yourself!

 We opened up our Kyosho shipment this morning and what did we see?  Some spanking new Product! OK I'm a little more excited than I should be, but check out the new Endless Mitsubishi Lancer Auto Scale body for the Mini-Z AWD MR-010, the Clarion Nissan GT-R Auto Scale body for the MR-02 and the Pearl White Lamborghini Mucielago Ready Set. We have the Clarion GT-R in a ready set as well.

 We should have these up on the site and ready for purchase very soon.

If you've been waiting to upgrade your radio system to a 3 channel 2.4GHz setup because it was too expensive, wait no more!

Spektrum's no-pins, no-interference, no-glitch DSM 2.4GHz technology ignited a revolution among high-end racers. Starting with RF modules, they made it possible to adapt existing pro-style transmitters to this breakthrough technology for dramatically improved performance.

With the Spektrum DX3.0, you'll have a 3-channel system loaded with great programming features combined with built-in, ultra-fast DSM modulation. It couldn't be easier.

You'll never have to select - or wait for - a channel again. Plus, glitching from motors and metal-to-metal "noise" will be a thing of the past.

The third channel on this radio would be perfect for that dig servo on your rock crawler, or the winch on your scale truck. With a price set at $169.99 W/ receiver, why wouldn't you upgrade?
