The gang at Hagerty (yes, the collector car guys), have posted a video on their Youtube channel showing the epic piece by piece construction of the Lego ‘Creator Series’ Ferrari F40. The video is just over a minute long (the soundtrack leaves something to be desired) and shows several different angles, covering assembly from start to finish. All told the kit itself measures over 10 inches in length, 5 inches in width and #TheToyCarCreative found one on Amazon.ca for a smidge over $220.00. That price might seem a bit high but remember, this is no basic Lego kit! With nearly 1200 individual blocks and a plethora of highly detailed and functioning accessories this is a model for the more experienced/confident[…]
Portugese racer Bruno Coelho has taken out the 2015 1/10 4wd Off-Road Worlds at the Yatabe Arena in Japan. Normally known for his touring car prowess, Coelho carried the TQ into the mains and drove away to win the first two finals and wrap up the championship in sizzling fashion. His XRAY buggy appeared to have a real advantage in the rhythm sections of the challenging astro-turf track and although his challengers showed glimpses of fight, when it counted no one ever really looked like beating Coelho. Naoto Matsukura ended up second on the podium after a win in A3 (Coelho did not race in A3) and David Ronnefalk deservedly rounded out the top three after consistent runs in each[…]
Axial today released a new RTR trophy truck and #TheToyCarCreative wants one badly! Based on the 1/10 Yeti platform, fitted with a whole bunch of scale goodies and officially licensed by SCORE® International Off-Road, this truck could be a ground breaker for the hobby. As vehicles become more capable in true off-road situations and the hobby progresses further away from the traditional race day format and goes more mobile, the appeal of Baja style racing is becoming very obvious. The new Axial Yeti™ SCORE® Trophy Truck® RTR (kit# 90050) is the truck to do it with and it’s on our Christmas lists for sure! Watch the video and then keep scrolling for the gallery!

#TheToyCarCreative was firmly glued to the LiveRC.com coverage of the 2015 IFMAR 1/10 Off-road Worlds from Yatabe Arena in Japan last night and we were stoked to see young American Spencer Rivkin take the 2wd title with his Team Associated B5M buggy. This is the first World’s Rivkin has ever competed in, making the win an absolutely remarkable achievement. Rivkin held his nerve over three exciting mains, finishing with a second and two wins to secure the title. Kyosho driver Jared Tebo had the TQ but finished second overall after some costly mistakes. Ryan Cavalieri rounded out the podium with his Team Associated B5M. Check out Spencer Rivkin wrapping up the 2015 title in A3 here, video courtesy of 2wdmod.com
