RC ADVENTURES – Jeepin’ in the Beast 4X4 Wrangler Rubicon


The Spring melt is finally here! It has been an unusually long winter – but at last we can stretch our legs and get out to have some fun! I made sure my “Beast” Axial SCX10 I have built.

This particular truck runs on Dual 35T Brushed Motors, and an RX8 ESC. Everything is powered by a GensAce 3s Lipo (8400mah). The Servo is a High Torque Savox, and the tires are Traxxas Sledgehammers. The rims are the GMade Air System 2.2 in size. The Drive Shafts are RC4WD steel Punishers, connected to a VanquishRC Transmission with RRP Steep Gears. This is an electric 4×4 that was pieced together over several years. The Shocks are Integy MSR10 (my personal favourite).

Everything about this truck has been made to be Super Tough, and durable. It is a very expensive truck – but certainly worth all the hours of amazing fun I have with it RCSparks Studio Photography

Enjoy my friends.. this is certainly an epic journey..

Tobias Braeker – “HOW TO get the bucket of RC wheel loader full WiTHOUT SPiNNiNG TiRES


This video is AWESOME! My friend Tobias Braeker takes some time to do a tutorial for RCSparks! Tobias knows I have recently acquired a Front End Loader.. and I’m struggling a bit with the practice. So, in true RC Community spirit, he took the time to do a GREAT Video showing how to Fill a Bucket without the Tires spinning. Here are a few words from Tobias:

There are only a few rules you have to follow and your wheel loader operation will look like the real one:

1. Keep the operation area in front of the pile flat
2. Acute-angle of 2-3 degrees between ground and bucket blade
3. Lifting the bucket to avoid spinning of front wheel
4. Drawn back the bucket to avoid spinning of rear wheels
5. Constant but less driving speed
6. Harmonic cooperation of speed, lifting and drawn back
7. Training, training, training

GRAUPNER LiEBHERR L574 Hydraulic Loader – 1/15th Scale Snow Removal


This is my first time using the this loader. I have been dialling it in, and have since switched out the old FM radio that it came with. This loader is actually 14 years old.. but was well taken care of. It is an original Graupner 1:15th scale Hydraulic Loader. The Noise you hear coming from it is the Hydraulic Pump. I have it on a variable knob so I can control the pressure. This loader turns with a Hydraulic piston, not a servo. The only servo’s on this unit are Micros, that control the Hydraulic Flow Block.
