Build Your Own RC Snow Plow With Axial’s SCX10

It’s funny how things turn out in life sometimes. For the past 2-½ years, I’ve been a resident of Connecticut, enjoying the warm summers and cold (more like frigid!) winters. I’ve had the pleasure of building many different types of project vehicles, however the one I missed was some type of snow plow.

Race Ready Duratrax 835E Review

Duratrax certainly hit a home run when they released the 835 and 835E 1/8-scale buggies, these offer near race worthy performance at a budget price. While the buggies perform well against other similarly priced models, I often wondered if this buggy could make it out on the track against these purely race-bred vehicles.

5 Vintage Project Builds

There has been a noticeable resurgence in the vintage segment of our hobby and it is not showing any signs of slowing down. The bold distinct looks of these old school rides give them an unquestionable cool factor which is intriguing to hobbyists of all ages. This is especially true for those of use that are recapturing moments from our youth by once again owning the same vehicle that we started out with or even the dream vehicle we just could not afford at that time.

High Tech Trail Adventure Project

At RC Driver we get to drive a lot of cool vehicles for testing, but there have been times recently where we’ve been jealous of the editors over in our sister magazine’s offices on what they are testing. Lately they’ve been raving over some FPV racing drones coming into the office. We see them testing out new goggles at their desks and flying the racing drones in our parking lot. That of course got our minds working on how we could use FPV in RC cars.

Old School Flathead Dragster Review

There is a fine line between insanity and genius, and while I don’t claim to be either, once in a while I get a crazy idea that haunts me for years. I wanted to build a vehicle that could go zero to sixty fast enough to blow my mind while looking like it is flying when standing still. What really changed the direction was when I received a box from RCStacks.com

Which Lipo, Eh?

Hey Tony. I have an Axial AX-10 Scorpion that I want to mount a LiPo pack to. I have the graphite battery mounts screwed to the axle as well on both sides of the servo. I would like to keep the packs small but not sure which packs to buy. Ideally I’d like 3S packs but 2S is ok. Any ideas?
