Monster Truck Insanity – GET OVER HERE
Good day, monster truck gang!
Final weekend one of many greatest occasions on the r/c monster truck racing calendar went down- the Strong Axle Showdown in Richmond, VA. So large, the truth is, that it made local news! Tremendous cool to see the pastime within the mainstream like this!
There have been a plethora of fantastic rigs. Every time certainly one of these sorts of races occurs, you’ll be able to all the time be assured that almost all of the vans might be show-n-shine worthy AND regardless of this, there’ll all the time be a few insane builds that stand proud of the remainder.
There have been two winners of the concourse judging, and I wish to spotlight each of them right here.
The primary was a recreation of the legendary Virginia Seashore Beast monster tank (seen above). Matthew Corridor is the proprietor of this stunning duplicate! And sure, it’s fully purposeful. I hope to bug him into giving me a full story on this construct very quickly!
This subsequent construct is a duplicate of arguably probably the most distinctive trying monster truck of all time – Scorpion. Properly, I don’t even know for those who’d classify it as a monster truck…extra like a monster machine? Anyhow, the total measurement rig was a wild trying tricycle that featured two monster truck tires on the entrance and a rear “tail” that dragged. Utterly bonkers. Ethan Saunders is the proprietor of this superb recreation! The display screen shot above is from a video Tony CCXRC shot. Tony has a further video of it crushing cars.
A lot creativity in each of those builds.
JConcepts was on-hand each racing and teasing new merchandise. Listed below are a brand new set of entrance and rear MT tires that they’re growing, that are based mostly on a full set of tires that BIGFOOT driver Dan Runte used to run again within the day. No phrase on launch or some other information, however with them being proven off at a serious occasion one would suppose they’ll be out there quickly! Because of Josh Zimmerman for the pictures.
The Strong Axle Showdown is all the time a mega in style occasion and I’m trying ahead to attending certainly one of these years. Good job to the Showtime R/C crew for placing it on!
