Reader’s Ride: Chris Guit’s Tamiya Sand Scorcher

Nov 27, 2013 No Comments by

This week’s Reader’s Ride comes to us from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and appears in the January issue of RC Car Action, where we said…

This Sand Scorcher re-release was given to Chris by his wife as a Christmas gift (what an awesome wife — take note, ladies). He upgraded it with a set of aluminum wheels and modified the steering to move the servo inside the Scorcher’s plastic cover. For power, Chris installed a Venom 3300Kv brushless motor along with a Tenergy speed control and a mini 2000mAh 2-cell LiPo. To keep this bug under control, Chris uses a Venom 3-channel radio and the driver’s head has been connected to the steering so it moves left and right with the wheels.

I've been involved in RC for over 25 years, and first joined Air Age Media in 1997. I served as Executive Editor until 2008, when I went to work on the manufacturing side of the RC biz. Now back at RC Car Action, I'm thrilled to be doing what I love most--not just enjoying RC, but sharing it with all of you. In addition to RC, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife Kathleen and our wonderful daughter Audrey.
