A Different Start

What was it that got you into RC? Were you interested in models and stumbled upon the world of radio control? Did you see someone bashing an RC vehicle in the street or yard and say you had to have one too? Did you buy several toy store brand machines before researching the hobby side of RC?

Hands On!

I was about 12-years-old when I got my first Tyco radio control car. I guess you could call vehicles like this the original ready to runs, and it was plenty of fun for the few weeks I was able to avoid puddles. Not knowing what get next my father and I scoured local toy stores...

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.

Ghostbusters RC Car Build

When I saw what he was cooking up for some monster truck racing I knew I wanted a closer look. Ghostbusters is one of my favorite movies and with a new production due in theaters soon it’s no surprise that Chris’ Ecto 1 caught my attention. It isn’t the first time I have seen an RC Ecto 1 but it’s the first Clod based version I’ve seen and it has a roof full of ghost busting equipment.
