First Traxxas TRX-4 Unboxing Pictures

Traxxas TRX-4 First UnboxingA member of the official Traxxas forums, who goes by the username Wolfslash16, just posted the first photos we’ve seen of the recently introduced TRX-4 in the wild. The pictures reveal details not shown in the official promotional photos such as the scale inner fender wells and a couple of shots of the TRX-4 next to an SCX10 II. The owner goes on to give some of his first impressions of it including that the body is pretty heavy, the bumpers are too wide, and the shocks may be too short. However, even with those shortcomings, it sounds like he is very impressed with the truck overall. Check out the unboxing pics here and let us know if you’ll be picking one up. Read more…

RC Driver Magazine Out of Business

RC Driver Magazine Out of BusinessWe regret to report that another great RC car magazine is out of business. It recently came to our attention that many of our fellow RC enthusiasts haven’t been receiving their monthly subscription issues of RC Driver Magazine. We also haven’t been able to find it for sale locally. After a bit of digging we found a statement from RC Driver’s publisher which officially confirms that they have ceased operations. It appears that Editor, Greg Vogel, will continue running the magazine’s website independent of the publisher. Since 2003, RC Driver Magazine has offered RC hobbyists over 150 issues packed with excellent reviews, how-to articles and readers rides. Even our very own Tamiya High Lift was featured in the Show Offs section in the August 2015 issue. We will definitely miss looking forward to each issue. RIP RC Driver Magazine! Read more…
