Cheaters Never Win

Cheaters Never Win

The cynics among you have read the title of this blog and already thought, “not true, cheaters win all the time.”  Well hold your horses there, turbo.  I’m not talking about cheaters in the sense you’re likely thinking of them.  I’m talking about the people who attempt to cheat the odds out of the hard […]
Hey Racers, Try Bashing For Fun

Hey Racers, Try Bashing For Fun

Yes, the featured image for this blog is Mario Kart, and yes that is a real RC car–one I would rather play with 99 times out of 100 compared to a race-only on-road car that would require hours and hours of set up.  Why?  Because all of those set up hours would be spent smiling, […]
Behind The Scenes w/A Big Truck

Behind The Scenes w/A Big Truck

Recently, I visited Milestone RC Raceway just outside of Ontario, California for an all-day photo shoot with RC’s “biggest” new release, the Losi 5ive-T.  Although we can’t release all of the coverage for this vehicle just yet, I wanted to show you a photo I took on my cell camera.  This is one of our […]

JQ’s Joseph Quagraine Makes An Appearance At Hot Rods Club Race

              We had a little surprise at one of the local tracks here in So Cal last night during the Hot Rod “Tuesday Night Nationals.”  Hot R0ds attracts a wide collection of pro RC drivers on a weekly basis, with Chad Bradley and Jeremy Kortz racing regularly…but last night’s […]
It’s The Mechanical Aspect That Gets Me Every Time

It’s The Mechanical Aspect That Gets Me Every Time

What does it mean to be a gearhead, a mechanic, or a wrencher?  It usually means you’re into disassembling things to see how they work, and then reassembling them again. I know this was the case for me at an early age.  I enjoyed tearing things apart–household items like radios, toasters (sorry mom), clocks and […]
Late Summer Reading & Movie Suggestions

Late Summer Reading & Movie Suggestions

As the racing season is winding down this fall, it can be difficult to go cold-turkey on RC racing.  For those of you who still have the racing itch and want to read a good book (you know…reading…books…they’re like magazines, only bigger) and watch a good movie, I have two suggestions for you. Both of […]
HPI Savage Flux Video–“The Movie!”

HPI Savage Flux Video–“The Movie!”

Check out this awesome video created by an HPI fan–it’s edited to look like a movie, and he does quite a job showing off the Savage Flux’s performance capabilities. If watching this video doesn’t make you want to go outside and bash with a monster truck, we suggest checking your pulse! Click below & enjoy! […]
When You’re Not RC’ing, Go Ride!

When You’re Not RC’ing, Go Ride!

I’ve recently resumed another pastime of mine, riding bikes, as a healthy and fun alternative to racing RC cars.  The bike in question is a Redline road bike, and thanks to the city of Santa Clarita where I live, I have miles and miles of dedicated biking paths available to me. I’m certainly not the […]
Traxxas After Run Maintenance – Waterproof Vehicles

Traxxas After Run Maintenance – Waterproof Vehicles

Is there anything more fun than running an RC car during a rainy day without worrying about electrical problems?  With waterproof Traxxas vehicles like the Slash, a rainy day will never stop you from getting your RC fix.  But what should you do after you’ve finished running in wet conditions?  Just toss the truck into […]

On The Road Again…

On The Road Again…

Tomorrow I fly out of sunny So Cal and head to the other side of the country…like, the entire way across, all the way back to Connecticut. I’m visiting the Air Age home office for a week, and then I’m happy to say that I will be racing in the 2011 Short Course Nationals at […]
Tekin 4-Pole Update

Tekin 4-Pole Update

So I promised an update on the Tekin 4-pole motor that I blogged & video-blogged about last week.  The amount of traffic this new Tekin motor generated on our site was impressive, by the way.  It surprised even me, and I knew this motor would be hot. I installed the 4600kV Tekin motor in my […]
