Orion Vortex R10.1 Pro ESC review

I have been testing the new Orion Vortex R10.1 pro the last few weeks, and I have to tell you I am impressed. My testing is just by feel of a normal weekend racer, but I always like to read real reviews by real drivers that are like me. I have been running the Orion R10 pro up until I got this. At first I was skeptical, because I couldn’t see how they could improve on the esc, but guess what, they did! First off, on looks alone...

If you run an SC10 4×4 you need to get this!

The center diff from Rcshox.com is by far the biggest game changer upgrade I have ever had! For the older racers, it was like when the hydra drive came out. It just gave you an unfair advantage over those not running it. My friend Cameron Kellogg turned me on to it, and let me tell you i’m thankful for it. The center diff replaces your slipper clutch. At first I was a little skeptical, but I got to the track and ran a pack with...

If you run AE you need to get these

I just installed my ghea machined shock pistons and I can’t even believe they are AE shocks. I have been running AE for over 25 years, and in all that time I have never seen such an improvement as I have with these little shock pistons. We all know the rap on AE, but I am telling you right now that i could care less when they come out with big bores now. These pistons are a game changer. For about 20 bucks for a set of 4 with...

RCShox product review

Recently I was sent a performance package from RCShox of products they offer for the SC10 4×4. The kit comes with Garolite slipper pads, adjustable ackermann steering rack, and dual stage pistons. RCShox designed these products with improving performance, reliability, and your lap times around the track. Let’s start with the ackerman steering rack. This part was one I was excited to see. We have seen AE team drivers testing a...

X Ray T3 Review

We were lucky enough to get another great review article from Stephen Coyle. This is on the X Ray T3. This week I received my Xray T3 2012 from RCDisco, the UK distributor for Xray, Hudy, Ko Propo, Tekin and a number of other big brands.  Xray have, in my opinion, always been viewed as the premium kit makers in the R/C world and they always produce a quality product – it was time to see if this comes through in the latest...

Big Review – Speedzone Lipo 6800 55c

I was lucky enough to test out one of the new Speedzone Lipo’s the past few weeks. I tried out the 6800 55c version, and all I can say is wow! I am by no means one of the pro drivers, and I am basically a mid-top of the pack in stock at my local track. I guess what I am trying to say, is that I am your average racer. So my reviews come from that angle. With that being said, I think the Speedzone 6800 Lipo rocks. I noticed...
