Over the last couple of years stock racing has undergone many changes as today’s brushless motors and speed controls have pushed the technology envelope. Many critics used to argue that you need the latest firmware to stay competitive in stock racing; that might have been true when electronic timing was allowed, but since many race organizations have adopted “blinky mode” stock racing this is less of an issue now. In this type of racing, the speed control has a blinking light that indicates that it isn’t using electronic timing at all. Some older speed controls can receive a firmware update to unlock this mode, but now many companies now develop speed controls that are intended to compete in “blinky mode” stock racing only.

About the authorAssociate Editor Since receiving my first hobby-grade RC car as a holiday present from my father nearly 20 years ago, I've been fortunate enough to meet more people and experience more opportunities through the adventures I've had in the RC industry than I would've ever imagined. I've done it all - from working at a hobby shop, to being a factory sponsored racer, to working for some of the biggest brands in the industry. I've enjoyed each and every one of the dozens of kits I've built, hundreds of events I've attended, and thousands of laps that I've logged at race tracks around the world, and my passion is to share those experiences with other hobbyists so that they may find fulfillment in their own RC careers.
