Unboxing the Losi LST XXL2 1/8th Scale Gas Powered Monster Truck


YES! I finally have one at the Studio and I have to say – I have always imagined Radio Control Monster Trucks being Gas powered, and when I was younger – I was shocked to find out that all RC’s that had engines were running on Nitro. Well, the day has finally come that I own a Gasser! SO SUPER DUPER COOL! I don’t know too much about this truck as I haven’t run it yet – so I can’t really give any operating opinion yet – but I can say that this thing is impressive to look at! In this video I unbox this monster truck and let you peek at whats under the hood!

I know a lot of folks ask me to give information in the video description, so here it is:

Trail Trucking – Forest Recovery, Knight Hauler with Ford AeroMax on Trailer


On a regular basis the RCSparks Trucking company needs to transport rigs that have been repaired or have mechanical issues in and out of the bush. We have found that these trucks are under immense stress when being used to haul heavy equipment. The only problem is, these backwoods trails are extremely difficult to maneuver – and if the driver is not experienced, he can easily end himself, and his truck/payload in BiG TROUBLE. These Semi Trucks are built for brute strength.. but can they traverse the crazy Canadian Outback? It’s up to you to discover!

Great first Radio Control truck – ECX Torment 2wd RTR Short Course Truck


I was able to get outside and have an up close look at the 2WD ECX Torment 1/10th Scale Short Course Truck. I have to say, it handled very well for being so light! The 15t brushed motor gives it Some pep.. nothing too special – but in my opinion, a great starting point and entry level truck for the beginning hobbyist. There are many choices out there, and many people can feel overwhelmed by the vastness of our hobby. But, I can say that this is certainly a solid starting point. Nothing broke in the video, and the run time was close to 20 minutes on a 2s Lipo (5000mah)

I know viewers will want more information on this truck – soI can provide a few specs grabbed from the manufacturers website

BRAND NEW HPI BAJA 5B Body 2014 – The HemiStorm Addict


HemiStorm Addict HPI Baja 5B bodyshell

Time to give the HPI Baja 5B a facelift! Back to the roots of this 5th scale icon with a brand new buggy style body. Made from 1.5mm of the finest polycarbonate available on the market, this 5 piece body comes with a clear overspray film and completely precut and predrilled, all ready to get painted!

Installation is easy.

Slide the side mounting pins on your HPI Baja 5B to the most outward position.

First mount the two oversized sidepods to the skidplate, as you would do with any of the existing buggy shells. Using the plastic studs and bodyclips the lower parts of the HemiStorm Addict body attach in the exact same way that you’re familiar with. The front mounting points of the sidepods hook up around the front rollcage pins. Simply take off the plastic ring that sits there and slide the sidepods in place. Because of the additional length, the sidepods keep dust and debris away from crucial parts of your vehicle such as the clutch and pullstart. The additional width ensures sufficient cooling, and if you do want even more cooling there is always the option to cut the double vents on each side. The side pods on the HemiStorm Addict, although being larger, are less prone to damage. Underneath the skipplate there’s a stepped line, allowing for that much needed extra ground clearance on rough terrain.
