It might have taken me a little while to post, but it’s well worth the wait. Here are the A-main runs of some of the worlds top best RC drivers running on IIC’s super fast carpet track. The speeds are so fast, one is left to wonder how RC cars are controlled at that speed [...]
A few years ago, I switched my entire fleet of RC vehicles over from geriatric AM radio gear to awesome new 2.4GHz.
