The Axial SMT10™ Grave Digger changes the R/C game

The Axial SMT10™ Grave Digger changes the R/C game

It’s happening, the rise of radio controlled monster trucks is making a resurgence. When I was a kid, a long time ago, there were a ton of monster truck options. Most of them were offered by Tamiya and Kyosho. The Clodbuster, Lunchbox, Double Dare, Midnight Pumpkin, Big Brute, Black Foot, Monster Beetle, USA-1, Sledgehammer, and the list goes on. These things were awesome. Not all of them were four wheel drive, but some were. The … Read entire article »

COPO Camaro’s Hit the Track

COPO Camaro’s Hit the Track

I saw this awesome video on Youtube and I couldn’t help but share. It is one of the 69 newly released COPO Camaro’s with one of it’s first runs down the track at a blistering 8.88 seconds. Pretty awesome for being an out of the box drag car from Chevrolet. This particular one is said to be #3 of the production with a 327 cubic-inch small block with a 4.0 liter supercharger. Other COPO’s either … Read entire article »

However, we are almost ready to sell Studebaker shirts and hats.” With all of this being said, I took it upon myself to … Read entire article »

So much so that they even tried to stop the airing of the commercial on Super Bowl night, but they failed. … Read entire article »
