RC Cars (Remote Control)

Haven't seen any RC car threads here (since like 2007 it seems), so I figured I would start one.

Post your RC car pics!

I have an Axial SCX10 III Gladiator with a few mods here and there (new servos, some aluminum upgrades, new wheels), and I just bought a Losi Baja Rey that I'm stoked about (50 mph top speed).

Here are a few from my stable. I haven't been able to use them much lately but they are really fun

Those are sweet! I really like the crawler and the Tekno SCT. I haven't had a chance to try Tekno out yet, but heard good things about their durability.

Thanks. The crawler is an Axial Wraith that has been very heavily modified. It is really fun. I race the Tekno models. The truggy is the latest addition and is fantastic, great basher and racer, actually all the Tekno vehicles are great at double duty they are so durable. My first one was the SCT, very fast and modified quite a bit as well. I am considering selling it as well if you are interested. I have a soft spot for it so am not 100% certain I'll sell it but you aren't far away from me and if you are interested I can give you details.
But RC is really fun and you can go down a rabbit hole of mods and accessories like a 1:1 car!

Got my daughter some 4WD truck off of Banggood called

Last RC car I had was in the 80s (Lobo 2) and uh.... things have changed a lot. Thing is pretty nuts and has taken a lot of abuse. Had to get some better nylon nuts for the wheel locks as those were falling off left and right. Might have to put a 3S battery in it. :devilish:

Probably not many who were around when there were slot tracks in shopping centers for racing. I was never into it but another guy in high school wound his own motors.

That's awesome. I still have mine. Unfortunately it's in storage overseas and only high works.

After a long break in the hobby, I am getting back in to it. The little Losi is a Mini T 2.0 brushless edition I picked up a few weeks back and that got the racing bug going. The kit in the box is an SC 6.2. It will be paired up to a Castle Sidewinder 4 ESC and a Fantom Racing 13.5 brushless motor. I’ll post pics of it once it’s done as I am still waiting for a few assorted pieces to get here. It’s supposed to be my Christmas gift, but I bet if I start yammering on about points and standings and whatever she’ll let me build it and start racing before that lol.

And so it is done…finally. Just waiting for the paint one the body to dry and then it’s “done” done. That’s a lie…it’s about as done as my GTI.

Broke the rear diff today. Definitely need a tougher truck.
If you're looking for something that can stand up to a beating, I have always found Traxxas models to be pretty tough.
