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.

Trail Truck Fun, Tips & Tricks – Axial SCX10 Jeeo JK 4×4/ Rigid Industries Theme


Out on the trail with my Axial SCX10 / Rigid Industries ltd edition Jeep JK. I’m loving that Vanquish Products / Rigid Industries LED Light Bar, it looks amazing! At night time, this thing lights up the trail. In this video, I start with a quick trail run, a little practice and a controlled decent. As soon as I hit the river.. it’s time to start chatting to you guys! I answer a few questions, and just chat about the way I drive. If any of the viewers here can pick up a few tips or tricks, then bonus!! I figure after all these years of trailing, I can pass on a few of my driving tips – and maybe it will help a few folks!

Enjoy!

RC DEMOLITION HAMMER LST XB 4100IS MADE BY PREMACON


ATTENTION: FOR EVERYBODY; WHO IS NOT FASCINATED BY RC HYDRAULICS; THIS MIGHT BE EXTREMELY BORING! RCSparks Studio Photography
THIS IS OUTSTANDING !!! MY friends of the RC TRUCK and CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT WORLD – TODAY, you see THE great combination of heavy equipment in ACTION – the LIEBHERR 944 DEMOLITION using the LST DEMOLITION HAMMER, a FANTASTIC piece of HIGH TECH made by PREMACON. This too can be equipped to any LIEBHERR 944 or 956 made by PREMACON. Even – as far as I know – it can be used by a FUMOTEC Excavator. From my point of view. The HAMMER is the super tool for any EXCAVATOR – it is so much fun to destroy stones etc. Have fun! RCSparks Studio Photography

Enjoy the video! Best wishes from Germany, Bjoern

Weight Sled – LARGE Scale Radio Control Trucks


“The JUDGE” is back – and this time we are GOiNG LARGE SCALE! The Judge was built by the secret RCSparks Mechanic team in 2013 and ever since then, we have had a ZiLLiON requests to pit 1/5th Scale Large RC trucks against the Sled. We had a bunch of folks at the track to race, so why not pull out the sled, and giver a RiP! These trucks are all Gas Powered, and have a battery that run the electronics. The Horsepower is Large for these rigs, and we we have never seen a Sled Pull with 5th scale trucks yet – it’s definitely time. The weather is perfect, the track is damp – and the trucks are ready to PULL!

Most of these trucks are LOSI 5T 4×4 (4WD), but John is running an HPI Baja, 2WD. Good for him getting in on this !! I think his truck did awesome, and those cleats in the rear tires.. TOTALLY HELPED!

LET’S PULL!
