If you've already broken your Traxxas 1/16 E-Revo or Slash, we're going to be stocking a ton of replacement parts. From Wheels, Servos, Replacement Bodies to suspension parts...we will have you covered!

Give us a few days to get this stuff up on the site, we got a TON of it!

When I came in this morning I thought I may have spoken too soon about the lack of 2.4GHz Mini-Z ReadySets...But what I laid my eyes on was a 2.4Ghz MA-010 AWD Chassis with the new Endless Lancer body already installed!  Not quite a Readyset, but definitely a step in the right direction.

John should have these up on the site soon, ready for purchase!

Ever wonder why Kyosho doesn't offer any 2.4GHz Readysets? Check out my latest video for a look at what it takes to put together a 2.4GHz MR-02 and MA-010 AWD "Readysets"

It's really not that hard...I know you can do it!

The Pro-Line Ambush CGR body we're sporting on our Axial SCX10 is Great, but we wanted to change the look of the truck a bit. We decided to go with HPI's Land Rover Defender 90 1/10 Scale body. This body is specifically made for the HPI Savage, but we think it looks more at home on this chassis. We're still getting all the new bodies up on the site so if you don't see what you're looking for, check back soon.

We get a lot of phone calls from folks wondering if this certain strange part or configuration will work on their XMOD or Mini-z. We can pretty much help you with any question you have, but as good as we are here at AtomicMods we still don't have the answer for everything! (I know, shocking isn't it?)

If you're looking to chat with like-minded RC guys, searching for a hard-to-find XMOD part, or looking to share ideas, photos and opinions on that XMODS Rock Crawler you've been working on...XMODRC is the place to be!  Click on the photo below for a link to the Forum. You can also find a link to the forum in the site menu on the upper left corner of our site.

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 wanted to let everyone know that phone orders and tech help will be closing at 3:00pm CST on Friday July 3rd, but don't worry, you can still get all your XMODS and Mini-Z parts online 24/7, 365! I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday weekend!

 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!
