News items


Proline and the mass exodus, what is going on?


Well remember when Horizon bought out Hobbico? Proline is part of that deal and if you were paying attention when they announced it you would know that some folks have already had a run with Horizon and don’t seem to feel the brand has anything for them anymore.


Could we be seeing the final days of real money contracts for RC drivers? You better offer more than just your ability to wheel if you plan to make a living off this industry. Things are changing and even though the players are young they are believing that the old requirements to get a check in RC are the same and I am sorry to tell you they are not.




RC Word Of the Week

Contract: An agreement between private parties creating mutual obligations enforceable by law. The basic elements required for the agreement to be a legally enforceable contract are: mutual assent, expressed by a valid offer and acceptance; adequate consideration; capacity; and legality.


Main Topic:



The Maclan ESC and motor and what have I learned?


Talk about the software and how it works: stages, timing, delays and how it all plays together.


GNSS logger and how it can be a help? Read the G’s

ET is off by about .15 but mph is on the money.


**Body battle: Malibu, Vette, IROC


IROC: Until this body came out the Vette was my choice for over all speed and aero dynamic smoothness but this one changes that and for me the IROC is the body to run if you have a 70 mph no prep car.


Vette: it looks aero dynamic and guess what it is, this body was the fastest body in the group averaging 1 mph faster speeds over the other two. The downside is this body likes to fly if you get the car just the tiniest bit sideways during braking, something I seem to do way too often due mostly to having to run on a spot with a short shut down area causing me to get into the brakes too hard too soon.


Malibu: boxy but flat sides make it stable going down the track and a tiny bit better during braking over the Vette
