ARRMA Fireteam Release and Monster Truck Wars RC Intermission

In this episode I discuss the new ARRMA Fireteam release and why I think it is one of ARRMA's best RCs. Then I switch gears to talk about the Monster Truck Wars show that we did an RC intermission for.

2022 is starting off big with the new Primal RC Raminator V3 announcement and a new C10 Mega Truck. But I'm also liking the small side of things and just finished a Furitek Scythe build with Mofo RC SCX24 upgrade parts. We'll talk about that and more. 

New Traxxas Maxx, More Micro Monster Trucks Coming, More Crawling on CCxRC in 2022

It's been a few weeks since the last podcast, so I've got a bit of a brain dump on this one. Lots coming for 2022.

What do I think of the new Traxxas Maxx with Widemaxx. My comments are pretty positive on it. I like it.  


Mofo RC and Furitek RC have some interesting new products coming for the micro RC enthusiasts. 



Talking RC Crawler History With Josh Thiede from Harley Designs & Vanquish Products

Unless you've been living under a rock big enough for a SCX6 to crawl over, you've heard of Josh from Harley Designs. His channel is immensely popular and his weekly Scale News Update shows keeps up-to-date with all the current releases and announcements from the industry.


I asked him to come on so we could talk about how he got started in RC and how he found full-time employment in the industy.

In Illinois to Race RC Monster Trucks at the HBR Classic

This is a quick update from the road. I'm currently in my hotel room waiting for the race tomorrow. I didn't have much time after my move to get anything ready for this specific race, but I'm here to meet people, have fun, and do the best I can with the trucks I brought. 

1:24 Scale Micro RC Monster Trucks Are All The Rage…But You Have To Build It

I know that many of you have been working customizing 1/24 scale crawlers and converting them into Micro Monster Trucks. This Southwest Monster Shop Tiny Titan is a step toward making it easier. One problem I've encountered and fielded many questions about is how to make them faster. There are ways, but it hasn't been easy to figure out what motor mounts, pinions, spur gears, etc to use. Hopefully this list will help clear it up. I don't take credit for it. I sourced it from Michael MacKenzie who worked with Ernie at Southwest Monster Shop on testing his Tiny Titan chassis. He complied a list of parts and I've used that as the base for my list.
