Written by Harley. Yesterday marked the first Goat Hill Scale challenge. This event really showcased what the KCRC (Kansas City Rock Crawlers) club can do. The Kansas City area is really stacked with some amazing talent, I’d put it against any club in the nation for the ability to put out some of the coolest trucks, media and products in RC crawling. I’m proud to be part of this club.
Follow along as Harley recaps his trip to the 2012 Axial Northwest Scale Championships.

Being that we were the first to offer our help with Spec, we requested to judge the Wraith course, and couldn’t have been happier when we were told that we would in fact be the judges for that course. As luck would have it, we also had the opportunity to setup the courses that these spec rigs would be running on. Continue reading
For all those scale enthusiasts out there, RC4WD has released a 1.55 and 2.2 version of their Mickey Thompson Baja Claw TTC tire. The 1.9 version of the tire was released a few months ago.

A lot of new people would love to build a kit rather then buy a RTR but are intimidated due to never having built a kit before. Hopefully this series will help people decide to build a kit rather then buy a RTR. Follow along as Team Fast Eddy builds the entire kit on camera. Continue reading

Team Axial driver Ryan Gerrish attended the Int’l Auto Show in Portland, Oregon this past weekend. Ryan and fellow northwest crawler Brett Carlson set-up a small Axial booth at the show to demo some SCX10 TR’s, and allow fellow show attendees to take the wheel of an SCX10. Ryan’s dashing good looks scored him a small spot on the local news. Thanks to Bulu Productions for making the video!!! Continue reading
