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 […]
Is RC’s Greatest Rivalry Back?

Is RC’s Greatest Rivalry Back?

Simply put rivalries add excitement. But, they actually do far more than that. Think of the Red Sox vs. Yankees, or Giants vs. Dodgers for you west coasters. They take what is a game and turn it into a battle. In RC, the greatest and most heated rivalry of all time is Team Associated vs. […]

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 […]

Trans-Am trio

Trans-Am trio

A few years ago, a couple of friends and I decided that we wanted some old school Trans-Am cars to race.  We dug out our old Associated TC3 electric sedans, browsed some hobby catalogs, and immediately began negotiating to make sure we each got the car we wanted.  After much discussion and bribing one another […]

Hot In Canada

From day to day I often run into fellow colleges and friends. We talk about the weather and about work. But, after a few minutes the conversation usually turns to my hobby. I have talked to several people in the past few months about getting into it. One of the most common questions I get […]
