About the author

Simply put, I’m all about nitro. Well, almost. I’m down with electric for crawlers and some indoor racing, but if you really want to get my attention, it better make some smoke and noise.

The Great Debate: Nitro VS Electric

May 05, 2011 36 Comments

I’m a nitro guy all the way and will be that way for as long as I’m involved in this great hobby. But I do see more and more electric vehicles popping up at the track and hobby shop which means that electric power has taken over. Yes, I have reviewed many electric vehicles for [...]

Old School RC

Growing up, I was very fond of Tamiya vehicles and had a wish list a mile long. But being a kid with no job made it hard to be able to afford that big list of vehicles. By the time I was able to afford those old school vehicles they were no longer available. Through [...]
