ARRMA 1/8 Typhon 6S BLX – Beast Mode Engaged!

The ARRMA TYPHON 6S Speed Buggy is a 1/8 scale electric buggy built to almost do it all. Starting with the spec sheet, the immediate sales pitch from ARRMA-RC is the Typhon is built to thrash, but can handle the track too. Given the 6S build sheet, the claim is 60+mph out of the box.

  Before its release in 2011, the HPI Savage XS Flux had been a topic of conversation for many.  Over the years, the truck seems to have held up to the expectations, getting better as the years have passed. Taking a look at the current edition, the Savage XS Flux continues to put...

I knew so little about one of the most successful...

Welcome to the Kyosho Mini-Z.  The worst keep secret in r/c in which I somehow knew very little about until recently.  The Mini-Z market is not generally visible from the surface, mostly because it takes place indoors and often in garages and basements around the world, but there’s...

Charging Solved!

One of the lingering frustration’s for power-driver’s is the need to wait on batteries to charge.  With nitro’s, you might let the engine cool a little between fill-ups and go again in a matter of a few minutes; you could easily put 3 or 4 tanks of fuel through a nitro...

You Don’t Want To Miss This! 60+ mph Traxxas...

Traxxas has a lot of choices, and it can be difficult to chose just one (no one says you have to); this is especially true since they continue to innovate and improve existing models, like the Stampede. Equipping it with a Velineon 3500 Brushless motor and VXL-3S, Traxxas Stability...
