Get ready to rock with this tricked out, Castle Monster Mamba / 4S lithium powered bad boy. It's big, fast and eats turf and dirt like a fat guy at an all you can eat buffet.

Stay tuned!

Project B-Maxx Custom brushless e-maxx
Check out our latest project truck, Project B-Maxx. It's a brushless Traxxas E-maxx with all the trimmings from GorillaMaxx, Great Assembly RC, FullForceRC, Castle Creations, FlexTek, and more. Yes, these have been built before but we don't care! BYT needed one of these BAD!

This truck is a work of art and performs better than any Maxx style truck we have ever owned. The harder we push it, the better it performs. Project B-Maxx is online!


Check out Project Baja 5BYT...and HPI 5B SS kit, tricked out with some great items from GH Racing, FFRC, DDM and some custom stuff as well.

The project is complete and we are burning gas with it right now!

Enjoy Project 5BYT!

   PROJECT Trail AX - Axial AX-10 Custom Crawler/Trail Buster  

Axial Racing came out with the AX-10 crawler and we just had to have one! They have certainly boosted the RC Crawling scene to the next level of popularity. Rather than just stick with the stock kit, we wanted to create more of a combo crawler/trail busting machine. A custom tube chassis, powerful electronics and more have been poured into this project! Items from Holmes Hobbies and Rummy RC are the focal point of the project and are going to make it FLY (and crawl)!

   PROJECT MMMLST....Dual Mamba Powered Losi MLST 

The forum members of BYT put their money together and purchased a brand new MLST for BYT! How cool is that? To honor them, BYT will be turning the little monster into a force to be reckoned with. You guessed it, a Mamba, Mamba powered MLST!

Go beetle go!
They are the latest craze in RC and there is no wonder why! The Losi Mini-T is a killer little truck and if you don't already have one, get off your duff and get one.

PROJECT UPDATE - We're adding some 8000mah lipo love, a Castle Sidewinder and a Speky 2.4 ghz RX to this truck. More power, longer run times and glitch-free bashing to come. Stay tuned for a project update!


We know that everyone can't afford $2000 in parts to hop-up their truck. Project JUMPMAXX is our attempt at taking a basic T-Maxx and making it jumpworthy on a budget of less than $400. We will break it down piece by piece so even if you don't have that many smacks burning a hole in your wallet, you can select what parts you do want to invest in and in what order.
