Cheap RC Tire Chain Tutorial – How To DIY

WOW! Get it while its hot! I just released this video tutorial on “How to make Tire Chains” for your RC Scale 4×4 Truck. This way cost me only about $30.00 in Chain – and thats becuase I purchased a lot of it. You would be able to get away with about $18-$20. Now that you know HOW to do this, please be responsible with the way you use it! I use these chains on SLOW moving vehicles. I DO NOT suggest this for High Speed vehicles. Mis-use of any RC Product can cause harm, so please be a responsible RC’r!

Have Fun my fellow RC ADDiCTS.. and don’t pack up those trail Trucks. The Season is JUST Beginning!!

Project Overkill: Black Tundra Rising

For 19 Episodes, you patiently watched in amazement as I constructed the most EPiC and unique build videos online. For 8 long months, you saw the project evolve from an Axial SCX10 Dingo – into the RCSparks Mammoth Dually: Project Overkill. Four Tekin FXR ESC’s and Four 35t Brushed Motors – all tie into a Dual Transmission system that drives 6 Tires.. mounted on an Extended Custom Rude Boyz Fabricated Chassis. A 1/10 Scale GMC TopKick Pulling MACHINE.

How can I make this film any more EpiC?! By Re-introducing the truck that started it all.. The Black Tundra.

UK Scaler Nationals, 2011

Friday, Sept 30 2011, I was packing up my car to head to my first R/C Scaler competition. Not knowing what to expect or what would be available, I loaded down my car with everything I thought I might need. To say I went overboard would be an understatement. I brought enough food and drinks to feed an army. I brought every spare part I had for my trucks. I loaded up my trusty SCX-10 and the newly converted AX-10 to SCX-10. Of course I couldn’t leave the Slash or all the spares for it behind. Now, 2 hours behind schedule with a 3 hour drive in front of me, I set off.
