I’m proud to announce the next installment of the “championship” scale competition for 2013. UTRCRC will be hosting the Southwest Scale
Championship on September 27-29, 2013. The first two days will be held at the Three Peaks Recreation Area just northwest of Cedar City, Utah.
Looking for something completely different or just looking to get into scale equipment trucks? RC4WD again has you covered with one of the coolest trucks I have seen in a long time. And if that doesn’t catch your eye check the functioning dump bed. This rig has got my wheels turning with all sorts of ideas! Check it out!
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.
We all know RC4WD puts out the most scale items in R/C rock crawling, but honestly with such scale looks its hard for parts to be very capable, especially tires, well RC4WD has been listening and they have a new super soft tire compound out. The buzz around the water cooler is they work really well too.
Starting out RC4WD has produced two tires with the new compound, both class 1 sized tires. Before class 1 was for street trucks where looks out weighed performance, now it is about looks, and performance.
Tom (Racer4life) has been with RC4WD for years, I met him at Scale Nationals this year and knew it was time to learn a little bit more about him and RC4WD. If you haven’t heard of RC4WD before you are missing out. They make the coolest scale products around and some pretty good comp parts as well.
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. After the 1.9 version came out, the community wanted more. Some images released at a trade show a short time ago gave us a glimpse of these newer versions of the tire, but finally they are out!
RC4WD’s new Interco 1.55″ Irok Scale Tires and 2.2″ TSL Boggers are available now through an exclusive early release at TGN Distributing. TGN has a limited supply of these hot new tires so hurry over to TGN now to get some while you can.
“A TGN EXCLUSIVE—RC4WD was on the baja scene early with the first production billet rims. RC4WD has a successful background in the r/c crawling industry and have used their resources to produce many great products for the large scale industry. TGN is proud to be the exclusive worldwide distributor for the entire line of quality RC4WD products.”
