Website About RC Cars

Hi, not a day goes by that I do not think about r/c cars. Since 1978 till today, I still enjoy them. Whether it is building a new kit, to club or racing in other countries, or to simply bash around, I still have fun.

And lately I've enjoyed building and maintaining a website about the hobby I've enjoyed for over 2 decades. I find it so enjoyable to own an rc car website that is read worldwide and has had over 1 million page views.

The website is called RCCarTips.com, and it is my pleasure to write about anything related to radio control cars and trucks. I invite you to take a look and hopefully learn more about the hobby.
