The Need for Speed (RC Style)
My name is Nick and I have been involved in R/C cars for 20 years now. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. I’m a die-hard electric off-road fan. From 1989-1999 I raced 1/10 electric off-road with the occasional nitro. From 1999-2003 I attended college and didn’t have time for r/c cars so I could concentrate on school. As soon as I graduated, I was back into racing. I’m not much of a basher. I am more of a racer. My background in engineering drives me to make unique and interesting designs. I designed my “X2” speed run car completely on CAD and then built it using an RC10L4 as the backbone. For the past 3 years have been working on speed run cars. I have 4 cars that I am currently working on to try and hit some insane speeds. The 1/8 brushless off-road class is also something I will be getting into. The brushless revolution has finally come to R/C cars and it’s a welcome change that our community needed. I’ll be posting here at Big Squid bringing you news on the latest r/c products and news from the world of rc speed run cars.
