RC Racing - From The Pits to The Finish Line with Midlife Classic Cars!

RC Racing - From The Pits to The Finish Line with Midlife Classic Cars!

It's Chad from Midlife Classic Cars, back with an electrifying update from the world of RC racing. Our destination? The famous Turn and Burn. Although I had grand plans to shower you with some stunning drone visuals, a little snafu with a propeller meant those scenes stayed in my imagination! However, every cloud has a silver lining, and thanks to the generous Jason and young Philip (who just celebrated his 10th birthday 🎉), we've got some swooping drone shots for your viewing pleasure.

The Turn and Burn track has undergone a major upgrade. It's larger, more challenging, but still as exhilarating as ever. Every time I race, I cross paths with our good friend from Sky Basher R/C, who's an incredible wealth of knowledge and support. Speaking of which, if you haven’t visited his YouTube channel, you're missing out - find him here.

One of the aspects of RC racing I genuinely enjoy is delving into people's setups. Each racer has a unique touch, from the array of cars to the layout of their pits. It's like peeping into a racer's personality! I got a chance to showcase my setup, but there's always room for improvement.

Racing is not just about speed; it's also about the tinkering. I had a minor setback when I broke an axle during practice but managed to bounce back, thanks to the amazing RC community around me. Now, I'm looking forward to switching from my Traxxas Slash to something a bit more nimble – perhaps a buggy. If you’ve got recommendations, drop them in the comments!

Lastly, for all you automobile aficionados, don't forget that Midlife Classic Cars is your go-to destination for automotive books and shop manuals. Oh, and have you seen our shirts? They sport the perfect slogan for our tribe: "One foot in the grave, one foot on the throttle."

Till our next race, keep those engines revved and spirits high!
