Event Coverage – RC Freaks of St Louis Spring Bash
Yesterday we got the chance to attend the first rc bash of the season put on by the RC Freaks of St Louis. The event was held in a city park in Arnold Missouri, and luckily for all of us the weather was absolutely perfect. The turnout for the event was very large, there were bashers, and their cars/trucks, everywhere you turned.
In the bashing world there are generally two types of bashes, those with events, and those without, and most of the RC Freaks events don’t have organized events. This is cool from the aspect that you can just show up and run whenever you want, then leave whenever you want. At the RC Freaks event over the weekend, BigSquidRC and Hitec donated the X1 Touch Charger that we used in our review to be the prize of a long jump contest, and quite the contest it was. Small plastic bmx type ramps were used and each driver got two shots at hucking the longest distance they could. In the end Adam Bailey would take the win (and the Hitec charger) with a jump of 49 feet driving a Losi 8ight nitro powered buggy.
The rest of the day was spent bashing with friends. There was plenty of pavement to run on if that was your thing, and there was a huge grassy area to get crazy with your off-roader. Every type and style of rc was represented at the bash from micro scaled trucks, to 5th scales, to crawlers, to 8th scale on-road, to drag cars, the people at the RC Freaks bash showed how diverse their taste in bashing equipment truly is.
The RC Freaks hold an organized bash about once a month. If you are in the Midwest and would like to attend, or simply want more information on bashing, This Is The Link to RC Freak’s Facebook Group. We would also like to thank Kyle, Tim, and the rest of the RC Freaks for all their hospitality at their event yesterday, we look forward to bashing with them again in the near future.
