Since posting the build photos and action video of that sweet Tamiya Clod Buster JPS Pro Chassis conversion, we also uploaded a video of this truck in slow mo. Check it out above and let us know what you think.
Last month we posted our time lapse build video of the Tamiya Bullhead we recently picked up. You’d never know it by looking at this video, but this is the same truck. Since the first video, our Bullhead has gone through quite a conversion. Check out the action video above and then read the rest of the details on this truck here.
After years of longing to relive my first hobby grade RC car build, I recently had the chance to pick up the first RC car I ever built, the Tamiya Bullhead. It was awesome! The waves of nostalgia flowed through my veins like a drug. I felt exactly like that 14 year old kid back in the early 90s, doing it all for the first time, again. At that moment, I thought for sure that I’d keep the truck box stock forever. Then, a few months later, while browsing Ebay, I stumbled across a pretty rare gem. It was a JPS Pro Clod Buster chassis. There it was, the Clod upgrade I could only dream of owning back in the day, and now it was available for sale. I knew it would be scooped up quickly so I leaped into action and bought it. Now it was mine! The following photos document the conversion from a stock Tamiya Bullhead to the JPS Venom Clod! Read more…
It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of the Tamiya Clod Buster, and its sibling, the Tamiya Bullhead. I have personally owned four of these wonderful RC monster trucks, not including the Clodzilla II we built back in the day, which my brother still owns to this very day. Being the first hobby grade RC car I ever built, the Tamiya Bullhead garners a ton of nostalgic feelings in me. That is why when I heard that Tamiya was going to re-release this awesome truck, I knew I had to have one. Unfortunately, when the Bullhead was finally re-released, prices were sky high. Sadly, they were just too expensive for my blood. Then, earlier this year, I noticed that the prices were finally coming down, and when I saw one for a great price, I jumped on it. The time lapse video posted above documents the build.
We’re back with another action video of our Pro-Line Pro-2 RC short course truck! We’ve been getting a ton of snow this winter so what better way to enjoy the wet cold stuff than with a ProLine Pro2 with paddles tires mounted in the rear and skis up front? The tires we used were Pro-Line Slingshots which hooked up great in the snow. The skis are just cheap park flyer skis from Dubro which are custom mounted on the front axles. These simple and cheap mods make the Pro-Line Pro-2 a beast in the snow!!!
There’s no doubt that the Traxxas Slash put the RC short course truck on the map. Since first being introduced, Traxxas has sold untold zillions of the legendary RC truck with many versions and upgrades along the way. One manufacturer that has been producing high performance upgrades for the Slash since day one is none other than Pro-Line Racing. Believe it or not, they’ve made so many upgrades for it that you could build one just from their parts alone. And that’s where the Pro-Line Pro-2 comes in. Its basically a combination of all the upgrades Pro-Line has made for the Slash in kit form, including their own aluminum LCG chassis, grippy Blockade tires and slick Flotek body. Earlier this year we had the chance to do an unboxing and build video of the Pro-2 and now we’re finally getting our lazy butts into gear with build and action pictures too! Check them out after the break. Read more…
And it begins! This is a video of the unboxing and building of our Pro-Line Pro-2 short course truck kit. We will be posting photos of the build as well as action video once we get the chance to run this beautiful truck. Stay tuned!
