https://hpisavagex46.wordpress.com/. Here’s a fucked-up Adidas shoe getting repeated assaulted and violated by a 1/10 BSD RC Monster Truck.

The Shoe: Adidas Barricade 6.0 – SUCKS to t MAXX! Expensive and gave me achy heels! I’ve had the Barricade II and IV- those were good. But this one is PURE GARBAGE that’s even worse than $40 Prince Tennis Shoes,

The Truck: Not a Redcat Racing Volcano EPX nor Volcano EPX Pro. In fact, this is the BSD Racing Viper XST – from the same plant where Redcat’s Volcano EPXs are made! – at a much lower cost.

Truck Features: Full-time 4-wheel drive, 550 27T Motor, Oil-filled Big Bore Shocks, Brushed 1/10 ESC, 2.4 Ghz Radio System, 1800 Nimh 7.2V Battery + Charger

https://hpisavagex46.wordpress.com. Here’s a fucked-up Adidas shoe getting repeated assaulted and violated by a 1/18 RC Monster Truck.

The Shoe: Adidas Barricade 6.0 – SUCKS to t MAXX! Expensive and gave me achy heels! I’ve had the Barricade II and IV- those were good. But this one is PURE GARBAGE that’s even worse than $40 Prince Tennis Shoes,

The Truck: Neither a Hot Bodies Minizilla 1/18, a Losi Mini-Lst Rammunition , nor a Duratrax Miniquake. Its a Twin-motor Masterpiece!

Truck Features: Full-time 4-wheel drive, Twin 280-sized High Torque Motors, 8 Independent Suspension Shocks, Rock Crawler 25A ESC with Fwd/Rev, Twin 7.2V 600mah NiCd Batteries, Top Speed of 35km/h, Running time of 15 minutes. Sure kicks every other 1/18 MT’s ass (except the brushless-modified mini monster trucks ones, of course).

RB Innovations released a line of superchargers for various popular on-road and off-road RC Cars by a myriad of brands including:

HPI Traxxas OFNA
Associated LOSI XTM Racing
Dragsters Tower Hobbies Tamiya
Sportwerks CEN Racing Serpent
Megatech Hydros Kyosho
Hot Bodies GS Racing Thunder Tiger
Mugen Great Vigor Trinity
Duratrax Schumacher Yokomo

While many RC hobbyists and racers alike have been lapping them up, and even more in response to user reviews posted on popular RC forums like RCUniverse and RCTech, several key questions remain, such as, “How do Nitro Superchargers Work?”, “Will Nitro Superchargers Really Make My RC Car Faster or More Powerful?”, “Will Nitro Superchargers Shorten the Life of My Nitro RC Engine?”, “Are There Alternatives To Nitro Superchargers That Can Make My Nitro RC Car Perform Better?”.

Squirrels RC Forum made two videos to explain this. Do have a look!

Here’s Part 1.

And here’s Part 2!

I’m Julian Wong, The Professional Bum, 26 and a month ago, the child in me urged me to get some form of a play-thing to occupy my spare time. Unfortunately, my old Kyosho Inferno DX was way out of condition, and the engine was locked up from long neglect. By which time, I had already been spending days oogling footages of RC Monster Trucks online. Part of me was slightly depressed that I’d have to part with a sum of money to get something no less than what I fancied, and the other part of me was just excited to go out and get it.. after all… back when my parents got me my Inferno DX 1/8 Scale buggy, I did have a lot of post-purchase dissonance – “why didn’t I get the Monster Truck instead?”.

It was down to the Traxxas Revo 3.3 RTR and the Hpi Savage X 4.6 RTR. Years back, I’ve already been scouting Traxxas for their great offerings – like the Nitro Stampede and the T-Maxx, and their EZ-start system. However, it was my visit to HPI’s Singapore distributor Tai Seng Toys that biased me to the War Machine. It just seemed so rugged over the Revo, or T-Maxx, which had Small-Mid Block Engines. I wanted to get one toy that would last and heard enough about the Revo and T-Maxx suspension arms and drive shafts breaking via online forums, and so the Hpi Savage was it.

P.S. If you’re asking me, “why not the Savage X 5.9?” well… I didn’t want to get something too fast or powerful that I couldn’t handle. Besides, the 4.6 was already much more endowed than other trucks in it’s class. The faster the truck, the easier it is to get mashed. Having said that, I’m having fun with mine, and don’t rule out upgrading mine to the bigger engine in future.
