Inside Look - RC10EGT Pro Build

Before the explosion of 1/8th scale racing, there was a time period where gas-powered stadium trucks filled the heat sheets from top to bottom and perfectly bridged the gap between the exciting, fun-filled 1/10th electric racing with real enduro style racing that incorporated pitstop strategy,...

Inside Look - Street Eliminator Concept AE Edition

One of the best things about the Street Eliminator Concept class is that it really brings out the gearhead AND hobbyist in everyone.

Inside Look: 1990 Bigfoot MT Build
