Tamiya Clod Buster JPS Action Video


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.

Tamiya Clod Buster JPS Pro Chassis Conversion

Tamiya Clod Buster JPS Pro Chassis ConversionAfter 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…

Tamiya Bullhead Build Time Lapse Video


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.

Pro-Line Pro-2 SC Build Pictures

Pro-Line Pro-2 SC Build PicturesThere’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…

Tamiya TXT-1 Build Pictures

Tamiya TXT-1 Build PicturesOne of the more visually stunning RC trucks to ever come out of the Tamiya factory has to be the TXT-1 monster truck. From afar it looks basically like a Tamiya Clod Buster with an aftermarket chassis, but up close it’s a different story completely. Unlike the Clod, with its dual axle mounted motors, the Tamiya TXT-1 features dual motors that are mounted up in the chassis. Power runs from the transmission, through driveshafts, and out to the axles, just like a full size monster truck. Even better, the TXT-1 features a beautifully machined aluminum chassis, a four link suspension, sway bars and a set of chrome wheels. In reality, the only thing the TXT-1 and Clod Buster have in common are those giant chevron tires. I’ve been wanting to build one of these awesome trucks since I first laid my eyes on one and I have finally gotten that chance. Follow along as I document the build of the Tamiya TXT-1 with over 90 pictures! Read more…

Tamiya Blackfoot Xtreme Build Pictures

Tamiya Blackfoot XtremeThere is no denying that the Tamiya Blackfoot has a special place in my heart. While it wasn’t the first RC kit I built from scratch, it was the first hobby grade RC truck I ever owned. Unfortunately that Tamiya Blackfoot has been lost to time, but since the Blackfoot has been re-released and re-designed by Tamiya multiple times, you can still buy one brand new kit form today. Granted, the pictures you see here, a build of the Tamiya Blackfoot Xtreme, isn’t quite like the original, but thanks to its body, wheels and tires, it still holds much of that charm that made the original Blackfoot so popular. Follow along as we document the building of our very own Tamiya Blackfoot Xtreme and take it out for a good bashing. Read more…
