So I thought I would post a quick update on how things are going. I must say that the HPI Racing Savage gets a lot of attention at the track! Just walking into our pit table with the truck we were turning heads. By the time I set it down on the table, there were 2 [...]
Let’s get right on down to the nitty gritty here. For you crawler fans, XTM looks to be the second manufacture with a full on competition chassis right out of the box, the XTM X-Crawler. It seems every week the crawling segment gets more support, and the new XTM “super class” crawler is just more evidence to support the case. How [...]

Trade shows in general are so 1980’s. Back then they were heavily attended, with huge manufacture, dealer, and consumer support. Manufactures would debut oceans of hot new products and offer large incentives to dealers. Dealers couldn’t wait to get away from their stores in middle-of-nowhere America to reap the deep discounts and to party down on some manufactures expense [...]
What a weekend! This was the Season Opener of the Midwest RC Drag Racing Season! With some luck on my side, I won the Extreme Dragster class! It wasn’t really the way I wanted to win, but I’ll take what I can get. The amazing news is that ticket on the right side [...]
Pro-Line Racing has a few cool new product announcements this month. First up is the new Flat Iron RC Rock Crawling Tire. They look like they have some potential. I like the tread pattern. They are a standard 2.2″ since and come in M2 or ultrasoft M3 compound. What really catches my attention with these is [...]

So this last weekend I had a chance to attend the U.S. Vintage Trans-Am Nationals! I was getting tired of sending Cubby around the world doing event coverage and piling up the ‘grown up entertainment’ expense report! While there, I got to meet up with Doug, the guy who runs the events. There is a picture [...]
I get emails all the time from people asking me how they can become pro drivers, and what it takes to take their hobby and turn it into a job. Let me tell you, it’s not easy! It’s tough to get noticed by the companies that have the move to afford drivers. Well, if being a Pro is what you [...]
Weed. So just why is it that many outdoor (and some indoor) tracks across the country have such a large proportion of racers that insist on smoking weed during races? Certainly rc racing is not set up for youth racers, as it caters more to the 30-something age set. But, rc racing should always be youth friendly, and being [...]
