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.
I first met John (Mthead) years ago on the forum. He is a stand up guy who makes some really cool crawlers and a lot of products that benefit the R/C crawling world. After bugging him for a few months I was finally able to get him to fill out a vendor profile and give us some of the details of Fubar Crawlers.
Last year ToyoFast (Brett) of Bulu Productions put out a fantastic video highlighting all the fun, rigs and driving that was at the 2010 Axial Scale Nationals, this year Brett took on the same project. With a visually stunning journal of all the fun and excitement of the event this years video will be anything but dull.
The short wheelbase left something to be desired in those steep climbs that crawlers often see. Well, RC4WD looked again to Land Rover this time with the Defender 110, the D110 is almost identical to the Defender 90, but the 110 offers a longer body and a longer wheelbase to go with it. The wheelbase from the D90 to D110 stretches from 11.10” to 13.14.” While just having this body is great RC4WD does one better, The Land Rover Defender 110 is now available as a ready to run crawler.
For all you Jeep fans out there Proline Racing has officially announced a one piece designed Jeep Comanche also know as a MJ. Proline has been using their Jeep Licensing extremely well showing know ends to all the great bodies that can be produced, only time will tell if they make a few more jeep bodies, but for now there are some options out there for all the scale guys.
A photo was taken at a 1:1 event (KOH) of Axial’s newest scale crawler and shortly after the new spread like wild fire on forums around the world. The new crawler appears to be a scale replica of a 1:1 crawler with a plastic molded cage and a full scale interior, new wider axles. It is rumored that it will be available in May 2011 and have price of $350 to $400 RTR.
