  • RC Word Of the Week


Refers to the angle of caster on the rear wheels. However, that angle prevents the squatting of the rear suspension, so ‘anti-squat’ it is. Anti-squat is most effective on acceleration from a stop, when much of the car’s weight is forced onto the rear suspension. Lifting the front of the hinge pin of the rear arms gives a caster (anti-squat) angle, and helps to transfer the power that makes the car want to do a wheelie into forward motion.


Main Topic:



RAE spec car has arrived.


New RC drag strip, well sort of…..

Show notes below

 Tim Notes:

 RCDRL speech:

 There are about three things I need each day.

First one is I need something to look up to, the next one is something to look forward to and the third is someone to chase.

  Now first off I want to thank God because that’s who I look up to.

He’s graced my life with opportunities that I know are not of my hand or any human hand.

He’s shown me that it’s a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates

God will forever be the one I look up to, Thank you.

To my family, that’s who and what I look forward to.

To my wife Jenni and my kids Holly, Parker and Kenna

The courage and significance you give me every day as I go out the door is beyond compare.

You are the four people in my life I want to make the most proud of me, Thank you.

 And to my hero, the one I chase,

When I was 15 I had a very important person in my life come to me and say, “Who is your hero?”

I said I don’t know, I gotta think about that,

This person returned a while later and asked again “who’s your hero?” and so I thought about it and I said you know who it is?

It’s me in 10 years, so then 10 years later I am 25 years old and the same person asks “who is your hero?” and I was like not even close to being anyone’s hero.

It was then I realized that every day, every week, every month and every year of my life. My hero is always 10 years away. I am never going to meet my hero. I am not going to obtain that I know I’m not.

And that’s just fine with me because that gives me someone to always be chasing.

So to everyone out there, whatever those things are whatever it is you look up to.

Whatever it is you look forward to and whoever it you are chasing, to that I say God bless you, you’re doing it right.

 Thank you
