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.

The History of RC

The History of RC

While I’m sure many of us who have been around the hobby a while could do an adequate job of putting the pen to paper so to speak and come up with a decent account of the history of RC. But, adequate is just, well, just another word for mediocre. As a community we could […]
The Future Of RC Is In Their Hands.

The Future Of RC Is In Their Hands.

I was thinking the other day about how every time I go out and drive around with my RC in and around the neighborhood I often get the neighborhood kids asking the common question “Can I try?”  Look at this way, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but the future of the RC hobby is […]
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 […]

RC Racing Is All Wrong!

RC Racing Is All Wrong!

I know that’s a bold and intentionally provocative statement, but come on, it can’t really be all that much of a shocker. I have raced RC cars on and off for over two decades, and in those 20 plus years the basic format has essentially stayed exactly the same. I’m talking about club racing here. Weekend warrior […]
Explaining RC To The Masses…Good Luck

Explaining RC To The Masses…Good Luck

When I tell a stranger or acquaintance that racing RC cars is my hobby, I usually get one of two reactions. One reaction is often a quick widening of the eyes, a smile, and an eager conversation about how they once owned an RC car…you know, the one with a gold tub chassis, what was […]
