iHobby Invasion Pictures – Part 5

Ok, so what’s with the picture of a bunch of shoes? I honestly don’t know. All I know is that when I showed up to take some pictures, the guys from Global/Hobby Shack all started comparing shoes and pointing out who’s were the best. When I took the picture, they thought I was a goof [...]

The Longest and Highest RC Car Jump EVER!

WOW! This is by far the longest and highest RC car jump video I have ever seen! (And I have seen a LOT!) Mike Ogle sent me this footage that he took in 1996/97 at the Dominguez Hill velodrome. There was a RC car speed run event there. I would guess he hit that jump at [...]

HPI Makes My Dream Come True!

For years, (literally) I have been asking body manufacturers to create a hearse. HPI Racing finally did it! It’s called the Grave Robber, and is modeled after a late 1950’s hearse! It’s made from .040 thick clear polycarbonate and is ready to fit the Savage, T-Maxx/E-Maxx size monster trucks. AWESOME! I can’t wait to get my [...]

iHobby Invasion Pictures – Part 3

Pro-Driver Adam Drake was there to help entertain the crowds. He looked like he was having a good time driving some 1/18th scales around and impressing the people with some driving skills. It’s always fun to see the pro guys a little out of their normal element where they can relax a little. [...]

The calm before the storm…

Things were a little slow this weekend, and I’m going to assume the next day or so will also be slow. All the major companies and their marketing people are on their way to Chicago for the iHobby expo! I have a feeling it’s going to be a really great show this year! Here at Big Squid RC headquarters [...]
