Review: Injora 32mm Aluminum-bodied Shocks for the Axial SCX24

Review: Injora 32mm Aluminum-bodied Shocks for the Axial SCX24

The list of upgrades available for the SCX24 continues to grow. Injora has been increasing its array of upgrades, ranging from tires, wheels, chassis weights, shocks, and more. After installing Injora’s 40mm Internal Spring Shocks on my SCX24 Deadbolt, I wanted to test out another of their shock upgrades; 32mm Aluminum-bodied, Adjustable Shocks ($14.99). While…

Review: RC4WD Rok Lox 1.0″ R/C Crawler Tires

Review: RC4WD Rok Lox 1.0″ R/C Crawler Tires

Raw, rock-gripping performance with a touch of scale detail. You can’t upgrade wheels without upgrading tires, can you? For this review, the answer is a solid “no.” With my Axial SCX24 Chevy C10 sporting a freshly-installed set of Treal 1.0″ Aluminum Beadlock Wheels, it was only fitting to pair those rims with a new set…

First-Impressions: Carisma Scale Adventure MSA-1E 1976 Ford F-150

Carisma tweaks and tunes their 1/24-scale R/C crawler for true trail performance. Last year’s release of Carisma’s 1/24-scale MSA-1E crawler gave me high hopes for the state of small-scale crawling rigs. As a fan of larger-scale R/C crawlers, I’ve amassed quite a collection of scaled-down crawlers over the years, searching for the “perfect” rig for…

First Impressions: Axial Yeti Jr. Can-Am Maverick X3

First Impressions: Axial Yeti Jr. Can-Am Maverick X3

Overjoyed. That’s how I would describe my feelings during the release of Axial’s original Yeti Jr. Rock Racer (and Yeti Jr. SCORE Trophy Truck). It’s hard to believe that those two models were released over two years ago and in that time…both have been discontinued. After Axial lowered the curtain on their two 1/18-scale models,…
