Tamiya TNX 5.2R

> Win A $2,629 Suped-Up RC Truck

RC Car Action is having another give away - they're calling it 'Project Aftershock.' It's a crazy looking Team Losi RC truck, and all you really have to do is send an e-mail to someone with your name, number and mailing address. Click here for more information.

> Tamiya TNX 5.2R Review

The Tamiya TNX 5.2R has come to new heights since Tamiya first launched the TNX series in mid 2004. The older TNX 3.0 was heavier, had air leaks in the fuel tank, and generally was a lot weaker. Now, the new and improved TNX 5.2R is loaded, at 1/8th scale and from 2-speed transmission to super tough steel drive shafts, this thing will blow your mind. It's contenting for top spot for 2007's best gas powered monster truck, with good reason. But what makes this RC monster truck so great? Lets take a look at some of the pros and cons of the TNX 5.2R, although, there's not very much negatives to say about this mean machine!

> New JP Racing Engine - FX21 R9.S

I always like to see new engine's being released - all that really means is faster, better, more efficient, better cooling and more power! You can read full specs (click on the pdf link to read the full review) here.

> Nitro vs Electric RC Cars - Who Wins?

Generally, Electric RC Cars are slower than nitro. That's just when you're buying stock from hobby shops, etc. BUT, if you're an RC racer, then electric can mean way faster speeds... RC Driver magazine has an article published that puts these two head to head. So which one's better? Click here to find out!

Just uploaded the HPI Firestorm review. No pictures as of yet, but you can check out videos of it. Here's a sneak peak:

Fresh from the factory, the HPI Firestorm 10T is HPI's newest addition to the RC market. This baby rings in at about $275 and bound to be one of the baddest 2WD nitro stadium trucks around. To give you a better idea of what the Firestorm has to offer, we've compiled a review to see if the newest addition to HPI's line-up is worth your hard-earned cash. So lets start off by looking at the best aspects of the newbie to the RC scene...

The Tamiya TXT-1 is a mean and ruthless truck from Tamiya USA. TXT stands for Tamiya extreme truck. The power, the body, the heavy duty chassis all are pure 'extremes' when compared to ordinary puny monster trucks. Straight from stock, the Tamiya TXT-1 looks as if it's been modified by a pro - Tamiya has definitely pulled out all the stops on this 4x4. Here we'll outline some of the pros and cons, and you can also see pictures and videos of the TXT-1 in action!

When ‘Team Associated’ started off as ‘Associated Electrical’ about 50 years back, little did they know that they would be one of the biggest and best companies ever to manufacture RC cars. From manufacturing slot cars all the way to technologically advanced RC cars, team associated has come a long way. But what has remained constant over all these years is their commitment towards excellence.

Fastest RC Cars

> RC Car Action's Reader's Choice Awards

Are you passionate about just one RC vehicle? Do you think it's the BEST? Well, why not let other people know you feel that way! On March 15th, 2007, RC Car Action's readers choice award will end. So if you haven't already gone and voted for your best/favorite rc cars, trucks and drivers - go do so now here. Better hurry, you only have till Thursday.

> RC Car Action's Fastest RC Car Challenge

Other news from RC Car Action - last year they held 'RC Car Action's Fastest RC Car Challenge' - the same is happening this year, with the same rules and all. You can check out the rules here. This year though, there's some fierce competition. People are trying to build RC cars that can go 200 mph!!

Like for example this guy Nick. He's trying to build an RC car that can go 200 mph. You can check out his blog. He's getting most of his supplies donated from companies, and seems to know what he's doing. He also has some cool videos at the bottom of his blog of other really fast rc cars - so go check it out.

> 200 MPH RC Car Video!
Here's a video of a an RC nitro car going 200 mph. It looks absolutely crazy fast - but, let's see that thing go 200 mph WITHOUT any help at the start like these guys do it - the whole 'wind up' thing in my eyes seems kind of cheap - so for me I wouldn't say that this thing can do 200 MPH on its own... but it's pretty cool either way. Enjoy!

New HPI Racing Kit

> New Nitro RS4 3 18SS+ Supersport Kit From HPI Racing

HPI Racing released a new version of their RS4 kit - the RS4 3 18SS+ Supersport. The + basically means it has cool classic body shells that you can get with it.

It's more durable, with many of the of the parts made of hard metal, all attached to a solid aluminum chassis. The drivetrain is extra durable now too, keeping dirt and rocks and that type of thing away from the gears.

The car can reach speeds of 81+ km/h, so if you're looking for a fast kit to assemble, I think this one's worth a look. Click here to check out the full details.

> Website Update

The website is coming along great. There's going to be some great new changes to a few articles on the site. All the reviews are going to be re-done to include pro and con features, as well as videos and pictures included in EVERY review done at Everything RC Cars.

Also, a 'how-to' section and FAQ page will be updated shortly with some great tips on nitro engine tuning, etc.

The comparison page will be updated with some great new comparisons, all on one page so you can see the pro and cons of each vehicle without having to browse to different pages of the site.

An RC Glossary is going to be added, so for those of you that are new to RC and don't really understand the 'lingo' - you can check out the terms to get familiar so you don't feel so lost :)

That's just a few things - I don't want to give away too much, as we have some great things in store for our visitors!

Hey there,

February has been a crazy month, I just moved into a new place and got all settled in so I'll have a lot more time for the blog!

> HPI Baja 5B Video

Let's start off with this video of the HPI Baja 5B. This thing is incredible and is a shame that I haven't had the honour to drive one yet. Just watch the huge jumps this thing can take!! The cleaning on these machines doesn't seem to be too bad, but I would recommend a good cleaning after every other use. Think of RC cars like a normal car, minus the expense haha. Anyway, on to the video...

Pretty cool? I think so too. Check out more on the HPI Baja 5B.

> Quick Tip:

Having problems with your engine? Give it a good cleaning! The best way to do that is to clear the engine by doing the following:

1. First off, raise the idle to ¼ turn. This will help stop the engine from stalling. (The idle screw and not the low-end needle)

2. Wait until the engine temp reaches up to about 145-150 degrees.

3. Richen (turn to the left) the top end screw by a full turn.

4. Hold the carburetor wide open, continue richening (turning left) the top end until the engine comes close to stalling (you should be able to hear it cutting out). This should flush out all the nasty dirt, oil and grime that get stuck in the carburetor and engine.

You might also consider tighting all the screws and bolts, replacing old fuel, etc.
