The Ty response….


  • 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…..
