Tamiya M-05v2 Pro Mini JCW Coupe Build Up

Tamiya Mini (or M-Chassis) cars are something I have always admired through my years in the hobby. I’ve even owned a couple M-03’s but never really got into their full potential.

Serpent Cobra 811 B-e 2.0 1/8 E-buggy Build

Through the long winter months, I was struggling to figure out what class I wanted to focus on running this summer for outdoor season. I was getting tired of looking at Short Course trucks. I briefly picked up a stadium truck, and ran that at Motorama. It was fun, but there was no guarantee I’d […]
