RC Car Action

Starting Line


We’re excited whenever a new RC vehicle is released. Sometimes new releases are existing chassis with new bodies mounted on them. Other times, it’s an older model that gets a few upgrades or a refreshed look. We love these new releases nonetheles­s. It’s an entirely different level of excitement when an all-new from the ground up RC kit is dropped. This is the case with our cover car, the all-new Traxxas Corvette Stingray.

The latest Traxxas release is a completely new take on their on road platforms. This latest chassis, the 4-Tec 3.0, is longer and wider than any that have come before it. It features new innovation­s and unrivaled scale details right out of the box. Check it out in all its glory it in the article, Stingray.

Join us as we examine Tamiya’s celebratio­n of DTM done the Audi way. We examine their 1991 Audi V8 Touring, which is a replica of the racecar that was campaigned in the famed DTM racing series in the 90s. It’s not all on road in this issue however. We take a deep look at a short course basher that’s turned a Slash 2WD into a mid-motor contender. Thanks to a complete overhaul using Chuckworks­rc and Pro-line Racing components. You won’t want to miss it.

You’ll also experience the raw power and capability of the Losi Lasernut U4 2.2. It may inspire you to create your own scaled-down King of the Hammers racecourse. Later on in the issue, Axial staff debates the merits of ditching portals for a straight axle conversion and attend the incredible 2021 Xact 10k Challenge where competitor­s went head for $10k in cash.
