A brand new brand, and my thoughts on the gasoline revolution

A brand new brand, and my thoughts on the gasoline revolution

Several stories that could directly impact the racing side of our hobby have surfaced in the last couple of weeks, prompting me to share my thoughts on two of them specifically – a new brand called Schelle Racing Innovations, headed by famed car designer Kurt Wenger, and the introduction of Losi’s new gasoline-powered LST XXL-2 […]

WATCH: Over 100 Minutes of Reedy-Race Action, Plus Winner Interviews

This past weekend’s 20th running of the Reedy International Race of Champions lived up to the hype worthy of such a milestone for RC’s most exciting and prestigious races. Two of the fastest young guns earned the most important wins of their careers in the Open classes, while the 12-round Invitational cage match between the […]

Moving On – The Reedy Race of Champions Heads Across Town

The RC racing world was shocked to learn that West Coast RC Raceway, host of last year’s ROAR Electric Off-Road Super Nationals as well as the last three years of the resurgent Reedy International Off-Road Race of Champions, closed its doors for good on  Tuesday, August 27. WCRC was the home track of many SoCal-area […]

When Electronics Attack

I’m beyond spoiled to have a comfortable indoor track within a 30-minute drive from my house, and the local RC community is lucky to not only have a place to race, but an owner who listens to his customers and genuinely cares about making the most of his business. In order to make the track […]
Where does your loyalty lie?

Where does your loyalty lie?

While at Petco Park for a Padres game last week, I had a moment of clarity in between bouts of yelling at the guy a few rows behind me. We weren’t so different, he and I: hot dog in hand, sipping a cold drink and enjoying America’s oldest sport, and yet despite the fact that […]
The bitter disappointment of losing

The bitter disappointment of losing

Last night I performed the RC version of a soccer player’s greatest acting gig: flopping and writhing in pain in order to draw a foul when he knows that he’s been beat. You’ve seen it on TV – the forward stays onside long enough to get the lob pass from midfield, fails to outrun the […]
Taking stock of a night of stock racing

Taking stock of a night of stock racing

Last night’s club race at SDRC in San Diego, CA was one of the most frantic and fun nights at the track that I’ve had in a long time. Admittedly, I don’t get down there as often as I’d like and although I try to race at least a few times a month it’s can […]
Curious crowds packed every walkway and exhibit at the show, checking out new products and talking to industry celebrities from every facet of the RC hobby.

The excitement of RCX

The 2013 RCX show, AirAge Media’s eleventh annual, was a first for me personally. While I’ve attended all but a couple of years in the show’s existence I had yet to experience what the ultimate RC expo would look like as a member of the RC Car Action staff, and it was quite the adventure! […]
Nice mods, dude!

Nice mods, dude!

When I saw this car pulling out of a driveway while crossing town on my way home from a photo shoot, I stopped laughing just long enough to snap this photo while parked at the stoplight (which still would’ve been enough to earn me a ticket for using my phone). I’m not sure the driver […]
Contact! How much is too much?

Contact! How much is too much?

Earlier this month at the MotoGP Grand Prix of Spain, Repsol Honda veteran Dani Pedrosa rode off into the sunset for the win while the battle for second got ugly. A last lap duel between the reigning world champion Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha Factory Racing) and Pedrosa’s rookie teammate Marc Marquez ended with the rising star […]

Location, location, location

RC tracks across the country are located in about as many diverse places as you can imagine, from the lobby of four-star hotels like those that host the IIC in Las Vegas and the Snowbird Nationals in Florida, to empty lots and even junkyards (Western R/C, where the Silver State Nitro Challenge was held for […]
