3 Signs You Are Dealing With an RC Jerk

Posted on Sunday, February 27th, 2011 | in Advice | 11 Comments

When I originally decided to write this article I wanted to use a little stronger word for the RC person we are referring to, instead of jerk, think feminine hygiene product, or any of the guys on that horrible show Jersey Shore. However taking some advice from a much nicer man up in America’s Hat (Canada) I remembered that people of all ages read our blog and I thought I would keep it rated G.

We all know the type or at least have heard of run ins with this elusive beast. Below, more as a public service announcement than anything I decided to layout 3 easy signs you might be dealing with an RC Jerk. RC Jerks are found in all areas of remote controlled hobbies.

Traxxas Monster Jam Release Should Not Let You Down

Posted on Sunday, February 13th, 2011 | in Electric RC | 5 Comments

It seems like everyone is talking about the new Traxxas release of the Monster Jam series and hardly any of it is good.  A brief look around the forums these days and they are filled with flat out Traxxas hate.  Now I haven’t been in the game long enough to really get too mad about all the Traxxas re-releases.  Just so you know I am no Traxxas “fan boy”, and certainly no Traxxas hater my garage carries everything including Traxxas, Axial, Team Associated, Losi, and much more.
