We are working on putting a tough truck type competition together for sometime in Sept and it will be held at RC Excitement in Fitchburg, MA. Matt Higgins has two trucks already built for the event and I have decided to build one myself. I based my truck on a Tamiya Toyota Tundra. I wanted […]
Why is dirt oval not that popular?

Why is dirt oval not that popular?

I must admit that in all the years that I have been involved in this great hobby of ours, I have never been interested in racing oval or even running a car on an oval track. Going straight and making left turn after left turn just seemed to be pretty boring. They were just one […]
Will there ever be a short course Worlds?

Will there ever be a short course Worlds?

With the IFMAR 1/10-scale Electric off-road worlds taking place last weekend, I started thinking. It seems like the few IFMAR world championships that we have are limited to a handful of classes. I assume that the classes that have IFMAR World Championship are the best of the best classes and therefore the most popular ones. […]
So what is the best day to race?

So what is the best day to race?

There are a lot of tracks around the country and a lot have racing on Saturday or Sunday and some offer racing during the week. For me the best day to race has always been Saturday. It’s simply the best day to race for many reasons. You have plenty of time on Friday night to […]
Scale crawlers — growing or not?

Scale crawlers — growing or not?

A while back rock crawlers blew up and it seemed like comp type crawlers kept popping up like crazy. Every now and then a scale rig would show up but now it seems like scale crawlers are taking over. I’m very excited about more scale rigs being built. One of the first trucks that drew […]
My favorite tool

My favorite tool

Not only do we get to play with cool cars but the types of tools that are offered to help us maintain those vehicles are pretty cool too. Everyone has that one tool in their collection that they just can’t live without. The one tool that I’ve had for years and use all the time […]
We need more solid axle monster trucks!

We need more solid axle monster trucks!

I am a fan of solid axle monster trucks and will always be. I’m bummed about the lack of choices out there when it comes to that category. Kyosho has the Mad Force line, Tamiya has the Super Clod and TXT-1 and HPI Has the wheelie king. They are all cool trucks but I still […]

Electric or nitro — So, which one is better? On the track that is…

I was recently at our charity race and talking to some guys about running my 2wd nitro powered short course truck with them in the 2wd truck class. I was already running a nitro powered 4wd short course truck in the unlimited short course class and since my RC10 GT conversion was a close enough […]
What a vacation!

What a vacation!

I recently got back from a week off and during that time I did one of my favorite things; worked on RC. I’m getting myself ready for our Race for a Cure at the end of the week and it was nice to be able to spend the time to get things just right on […]

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!

It’s been a great weekend and I look forward to heading to some of the picnics that I’ve been invited to. When I attend some of these events I love to bring some of my RC cars with me. There’s always someone there who never saw a hobby grade RC vehicle run before and are […]
Are you a custom builder?

Are you a custom builder?

  One of the reasons I love the RC hobby is because the possibilities with these vehicles is almost endless. I enjoy building kit vehicles and building project vehicles for the mag where I bolt on a bunch of cool stuff. The thing that I enjoy the most is designing and making my own parts. […]
