Dec 31, 2013 No Comments by

Another year another 12 magazines and boy does it feel like a lot more! I suppose it actually is by the time you figure in our four Short Course issues, Pro Racer and of course the Buyer’s Guide, all the video and web stories and who could forget all of your questions, emails and Facebook messages. But at the end of another 365, I have to say from all of us here, that we’re honored to have you with us. Our treat to you on this New Years  is the 13 most popular stories. Some are newer and some are timeless but regardless of what you want to call them, these are the most-viewed that we brought you this year, just in case you missed anything. Happy New Year!

About the author

Associate Editor I can say that I’ve never done ANYTHING as long as I’ve been into RC. I got my first car when I was 11 and never looked back. Since then I’ve owned hundreds of cars and trucks and raced everything from Off-Road to Boats but I’m an Oval racer at heart. Whether I’m down siding a jump or going fast and turning left, it’s all on and my foot is to the floor! I love seeing new people discover our hobby and helping anyone I can enjoy it more. When I’m not racing or writing, I like to restore vintage RC cars and organize the Vintage Offroad Nationals. I’m also a dad and enjoy teaching my son how to drive and watching him get into this hobby on his own.
