In RC, if you wreck and your truck manages to land on all four tires, you mash the throttle and keep going. Apparently this works for full-scale too, at least in Stadium Super Trucks. Sheldon came in third, but he wins this video.
I just wrapped up a how-to on building the Axial Yeti XL kit for the June issue of Radio Control Car Action. It’s a fun build and I highly suggest that you have plenty of room to get through it. The parts for this bad boy are pretty large. While you’re waiting for the issue [...]

Whilst perusing the interwebs, I stumbled across these beautiful shots of Kent Clausen’s custom high-speed cars from the late 90s. Way before Nic Case was pushing 200mph in a straight line, RC speed was all about the “Insane Speed Run.” Raced on a bicycle velodrome, the event saw highly modded pan cars packed with NiCad cells [...]
