Sep 29, 2013 No Comments by

The bleachers were full of spectators, the parking lot was packed with food trucks, the bounce house and inflatable slide were full of children, and after five straight rounds of blazing fast 4WD buggy qualifying that boiled down to be one of the most exciting days of qualifying in recent memory as the final qualifying positions for Sunday’s World Championship Finals went down to the final heat of the last round!

About the author

Associate 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.
