The most accessible pros in motorsports

The most accessible pros in motorsports

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog about taking go-kart racing against some friends a bit too seriously while on a vacation (read “Competitive Much?”) to go watch my favorite baseball team play a few spring training games. For diehard baseball fans, the smaller parks and relative accessibility of even the sport’s most popular […]
Competitive much?

Competitive much?

Last weekend I did the unthinkable: I took a mini vacation. Friday afternoon I picked up a gas-sipping rental car, loaded my bag, picked up my girlfriend and her 12 bags that I’m convinced contained every last item of her personal belongings, and set off for the sunny desert of Arizona to catch the last […]

Spring Cleaning

I just couldn’t stand it anymore. Actually, I couldn’t stand at all. Seven and a half months of near-weekly visits from delivery trucks dropping off the products you see strewn about the pages of RC Car Action had taken its toll, and after finally running out of walking space in the spare bedroom I’ve designated […]
From the Perspective of a Spectator

From the Perspective of a Spectator

I started typing this blog while packing my bags for this weekend’s Cactus Classic in Scottsdale, AZ. It’s approximately the 1,379th “big” RC race that I’ve attended, and while I won’t be racing I still can’t help but get at least a little bit excited. While at last month’s The Dirt Nitro Challenge, I marveled […]

Flippin’ Physics: RC vs. full-size back flips

Flippin’ Physics: RC vs. full-size back flips

One of the many reasons why we love RC cars is the opportunity to make them do what we otherwise wouldn’t have the chance to attempt in real life; whether it’s tearing up a loamy and jump-laden short course,  grinding the curbs of a windy road circuit, or launching into the sky to complete a […]
RC Could Make Airport Travel Even Easier

RC Could Make Airport Travel Even Easier

Anyone who has ever been running late for a flight knows what a pain it can be to haul your luggage around an airport (especially if you’re trying to a race with your RC gear). Modern day electronics companies make their livelihoods on using current technology to make our lives easier, so it really shouldn’t […]

The Wolcott Hobby Raceway surface is a bit unlike what we're used to here in CA.

Racing in a distant, far away land.

I spent last week outside of my comfortable Southern California bubble, leaving behind 80+ degree weather and clear skies to board a plane for the East Coast. It was AirAge’s annual Town Hall meeting and dinner, so I didn’t really have much chance to get out of it; instead, I stuffed my big Upgrade RC […]

RC (Super)crosses over

The connection between RC and short course off-road racing was a no-brainer; after all, it’s exactly what we do but on a larger scale. I wasn’t at all surprised to see RC short course trucks sweep through the industry with their combination of realistic looks and entertaining performance. For many of us who have been […]

A Few of My Favorite Things

A Few of My Favorite Things

After filling up Stephen’s TLR 8IGHT 2.0 before the start of the 15-minute main at another Tuesday night club race, I stole a few minutes to stuff my face full of Thai food from the local eatery (pad see ew with chicken – I’m a creature of habit) before his pit stop near the halfway […]

Seeing Familiar Faces at a New Facility

Seeing Familiar Faces at a New Facility

Of the magnificent opportunities I’ve enjoyed through this hobby of racing radio control cars, visiting new tracks and meeting fellow hobbyists rank among my favorites. Last night was my first visit to SDRC Raceway in San Diego, CA, an incredible indoor facility less just 20 miles from my home, and I could barely sit still […]
The Spirit of RC Racing

The Spirit of RC Racing

The spirit of RC racing has simple roots; humans are competitive. The urge to join ones peers on the drivers stand at the local track comes from the (healthy…hopefully) competitive nature ingrained into us at birth. Racing a radio control car is simply another way that humans exercise their drive to improve one’s skills in […]
