 Why I haven't been adding new posts in 2024 and RC Collection Sale 26th May 2024 Hello dear RC enthusiasts from around the World. I hope you are all well. I am sure you are wondering why I haven't added any new posts this year as I promised in my previous post (29/1/24).  The reason for this is that, unfortunately I split up from my partner the day after (30/1/24) I wrote that post. I did not want that to happen but my partner didn't want to be with me anymore. I had to leave the home that we shared for more than 30 years and, as you may imagine it has been a very tough ..read more

 Schumacher Cat XLS Masami Bodyshell, Wing, Undertray Shaping and Painting. 21/10/23 Hello RC enthusiasts from around the world. I hope you are all well. In this post I will be cutting, sanding, shaping and painting a full Schumacher Cat XLS Masami body set. As you know I have two XLS buggies. One is completely standard, and the other has every trick part in the book. The fully loaded version was built from the parts list and was not an actual kit. I had to buy every part separate and it cost a small fortune. I have receipts for £1133 believe it or not. It would have been cheaper to buy ..read more

 Tamiya Super Sabre Rerelease (58728) (COMING SOON) 30/8/23 Hello fellow RC enthusiasts from around the world, I hope you are all well. In the last couple of days, Tamiya have announced they are going to rerelease the Super Sabre and if you have read my previous posts you will be aware I have to buy this kit. I say that because the Super Sabre was my very first hobby grade car and I loved it and always regretted selling it. It was originally released in 1987 and I bought mine in the January of 1988. The original cars can still be found on auction sites but do command a lot of money and ..read more

RC Basics / Essentials 22/9/21 Hello friends and fellow RC enthusiasts around the world. I hope you are all well. I should have started my blogging experiences with this post 19 months ago. I say this as I am going back to basics in this post. This in order to show you need to operate (in this case) an RC car. However, all RC vehicles (boats, planes, helicopter, spiders) require the same basic components or equipment. Another reason I am writing this is because, when frequenting another social media site I came across a chap who was new to the hobby and wanted to upgrade a classic RC wit ..read more

What's The Best Hobby Grade RC Car To Start With?  8/2/2023 Hello fellow RC enthusiasts from around the world. I hope you are all well. When I was first getting into RC cars, the choice of cars, batteries, servo's, transmitters and receivers, it was very daunting as I was a complete novice with zero experience in any area of the hobby. I learned the hard way, by buying the wrong stuff, breaking it and fixing it. I also read magazines from cover to cover and slowly, over the years I gained some experience. I remember those days so well and wish I'd had someone to guide me through the pit ..read more
