Main topic

Adam Drake:

 

 Joe Zaier Jr I get to ask more questions? I like this. 

Will Adam just drop out of rc like Matt Francis when he's done or will he stay in the rc industry?
How many emails from guys like me do you get a day about the mbx8? Like building questions and setup questions. Because I sent Adam at least 6.
Are you going to continue being a guest on podcasts or do you want to start your own?
Will Adam and jq ever be homeys?

Dustin Smith Whats his opinion on the resurgence of stadium truck and could he ever see a return of nitro stadium truck?
Also, is he having more fun now or was it more fun say 15 years ago?

 Chris Trudeau Does Adam "play" with any NON-RACE Rc cars? Crawler? Drifter? Boats? Etc...

 Jay Brazier Would you be able to explain and teach mid jump air car control, you see the top drivers wiggle the steering while jumping over jumps.
Would you be able to share your tire choice for each track condition.
And a huge thank you for all the tips and guides you put on YouTube

 Jenni’s sister update

  News items

 Graced with RC hobby shop 

 After year’s of rumours, news has reached us that Kyosho has been acquired by an investment fund with plans for a restructure of the business.

Sources in Japan point to a slow down in domestic sales as the culprit behind the “sluggish performance”. Japan’s Nikkei stock market published the news, announcing purchaser, Shinsei Bank’s plans to rebuild management by boosting expansion of Asian sales channels & customers in growth markets. Former President Aki Suzuki will serve on in an advisory role to the company whilst Katsumi Watanabe is already listed as President on Kyosho’s own website. Interestingly in the company milestone timeline, it reads, 2018: Kyosho “Reborn”.

RC Word of the Week (brought to you by RC Driver Mag)

Glitch
Otherwise known as radio interference, a glitch refers to a momentary lapse in signal transmission. There are external sources that cause glitches, (like overhead power lines,) but consistent glitching is most likely the result of something in the vehicle itself, such as metal-to-metal rubbing as you might find with control linkages.

Facebook Questions

Rick Shepard Tim are u ever gonna break the 200 mph mark?

Joe Zaier Jr I have a Matt questions this week. Are you getting a t6.1 even if you don't sell your t5?
