About the author

About Matt:I think it’s safe to say I’ve done a little bit of everything in RC. That said, I predominately race off-road and my current passion is short course.

Racing is Back!

Jun 02, 2011 5 Comments

At the risk of drastically over simplifying the subject, this hobby–specifically the enthusiasts–can be broken down into two groups: racers and bashers. You either race or you don’t.
