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 […]
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. […]

If you caught my review on the TQ Racing SX10 4w (www.tqracing.net) in the November 2010 issue of RC Car Action, you would have read that I had nothing but positive reviews for this car. Well, it’s been months now since I threw […]
Perhaps I over-think things, but I’m convinced that there are 3 stages in the life of an RC racer. Much like the “Seven Stages of Grief,” there seem to be 3 stages of RC racing. No matter from what region, state, country or province you hail, these stages apply to you if you’ve ever raced […]

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 […]
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 […]
Team Orion announced the addition of TLR’s Dustin Evans to its team. Congrats, Dustin! Dustin Evans is probably a name that you have become quite familiar with lately. Rightfully so as this year he has won the Reedy Race of Champions, EOS 2wd, and Rumble in the Rockies. He has been one of the top, if […]
From all of your friends at Air Age and Radio Control Car Action, have a safe and happy 4th of July! Much like Memorial Day, I plan to run a RC car today…maybe even one with a sparkler attached to it. Hmm…the project ideas…. Have a good one, everyone.
Veteran NBA big man Brad Miller has found his way into the world of RC truck and car excitement with the formation of BMiller Racing. A past RC enthusiast, Miller was recently struck by the short course racing bug and wanted to get back into the hobby. “I am definitely a backyard basher when […]
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 […]

Luckily, in Southern California this happens somewhat frequently. With 1/10th scale electric worlds just around the corner, drivers like Dustin Evans, Ryan Cavalieri, Matt Castellano, Steven Hartson, […]
