RC Car Action - January 2013

Readers' Rides

Readers' Rides readersrides@airage.com SPONSORED BY TRAXXAS E-MAXX DAVE STIEGLER ›› WEST DEPTFORD, NJ This killer truck is Maxx’d OUT! Dave’s E-Maxx is RPM parts from front to back and also features a set of Traxxas Big Bore shocks, an aluminum wheelie bar, Pro-Line Big Joe tires and a steel roll cage. For power, he slugged in a Castle Creations Mamba Monster brushless system that cranks this monster up to 98mph! Dave finished off the truck with a custom-painted and detailed body. Awesome truck, Dave! TAMIYA CLODBUSTER RODNEY DONNELL ›› GREENSBORO, NC Rodney sure has one sweet Clod. Under that awesome camo paint job, the truck is controlled by a Hitec Aggressor radio system with a HS-645- MG and a HS-311 servo to launch rockets from his custom-built trailer. He also installed a ton of lights, a custom-made wheelie bar, and Pro-Line Masher tires for the trailer. He plans to upgrade to a 6-channel radio system so he can raise, lower, and rotate the rocket launcher. TEAM ASSOCIATED 10R5 OVAL SCOTT HANCOCK Underneath this slick-painted Protoform Nastruck body is Scott’s Associated 10R5 Oval. He tells us it's powered by a Hobbywing 1S speedo, a Novak Ballistic 13.5 brushless motor, and a Team Orion 6300mAh 90C 3.7V 1-cell battery. A full set of some pretty sweet custom decals finishes off this car. This is the first time that he’s submitted a vehicle into “Readers’ Rides”—hey, Scott, next time tell us where you’re from! Sweet ride! LOSI MICRO CRAWLER CHRISTOPHER OLSEN ›› ROBBINSDALE,MN This itty-bitty crawler comes to us from Christopher Olsen in Robbinsdale, MN. He just wanted to let us know that he grew up reading RC Car Action but never had anything worthy of “Readers’ Rides” until now. His Micro Crawler is molded into the frame of a 1995 Tamiya Jeep hardtop static model and uses X-Mods off-road tires, Losi 1/36 Desert Racer front shocks, and the stock Losi electronics. Christopher relocated the servo back behind the tranny so all the suspension would have plenty of room up front. What an awesome little rig! READERS' RIDE OF THE MONTH WIN GEAR NOVAK If we feature your vehicle in "Readers’ Rides," you win a set of RC Car Action decal sheets.
