Practice Watch Practice

Sometimes I’ll stare at the computer monitor for hours running topics through my head worthy enough to put on these pages for you to read. This month the topic came rather easily when a young driver approached me at the track the day before and asked if I could give him some advice. His question was rather simple and it applies to many. His question was: “How do I drive better?

We Found Bigfoot and It’s A Beast! My Opinion The Bigfoot is based on the Stampede chassis. I’ve said it about a million times before, “I love this truck design.” And I still do! The suspension soaks up the bumps …

Dynamite Large Scale Work Stand

The cool side of a large scale vehicle is, of course, how large it is. It demands attention from your RC friends and onlookers. Its big stance tears up the ground as you bash on the machine without a care in the world.

There is certainly no shortage in ways to transport your gear from your workshop to the track. There are hauler bags all the way to simple plastic totes you pick up from the big box stores. But if you are one of those racers who has to bring your gear to the track in the ultimate trendy transporter then you’ll want to check out the Team Losi Racing bags made in connection with OGIO.

They have added to their offerings, this time with a twist; a pair of wild looking RC machines called Wasteland and their rugged looks are not the only thing that is attracting attention from RC funseekers.

Hot Bodies D185 Review

Hot Bodies not only continues to impress us with new and innovative releases, but with pro, Ty Tessman, and other skilled drivers behind the wheel of these cars, the team continually delivers impressive A-main results. So when HB announced the D815 Tessman Worlds Edition buggy kit, an evolution of the successful D812 and D8 kits, we were more than interested to see how this car line could go next level.

B5 to B5M CE Conversion

When Team Associated released the RC10B5 and B5M, the RC community was in shock that AE released two cars for specific types of tracks rather than just one buggy for all purpose use. There were mixed emotions from some who did not want to buy two kits and two sets of electronics to run the AE cars.

Spot the RC Newb

Over my thirty-plus year run in the hobby, I've hung out in my fair share of hobby shops and raced at more tracks than I can possibly remember. When I and many other RC racers hit up these places, we have our routines which are often executed with blinders on as to what and who are around us. Sure there are racers and a track and most likely a shop, but lurking in the background are newbies!

DEX210F Review

The battle over what people think is RC off road racing rages on all over the internets, the Googles, "book to the face" and it's probably deleted from many snapchats accounts every twenty four hours. Many think that dirt is the only true surface for off road and many of thosepeople use slick rubber tires on the dirt nowadays. Carpet and turf off road tracks are popping up all over the place and taking flack from dirt believers

Craniac and Skully Review

My mission in RC over the years has been simple, to inspire and capture new hobbyists in the radio control car world. Some aspire to rule the block with the fastest RC car and some move on to the racing world in hopes of bring home trophies. For some time I wanted to bring home all the gold too, but I found much more satisfaction in helping people get into RC successfully. From my view, Traxxas is a company that helps this cause that is so near and dear to my heart.

High Tech Trail Adventure Project

At RC Driver we get to drive a lot of cool vehicles for testing, but there have been times recently where we’ve been jealous of the editors over in our sister magazine’s offices on what they are testing. Lately they’ve been raving over some FPV racing drones coming into the office. We see them testing out new goggles at their desks and flying the racing drones in our parking lot. That of course got our minds working on how we could use FPV in RC cars.
