It’s an honor and a priv­i­lege to join such a renowned mag­a­zine as Ra­dio Con­trol Car Ac­tion. I re­mem­ber read­ing RCCA back when I was in ju­nior high, won­der­ing what it would be like to write, shoot photos and most im­por­tantly play with RC cars for a liv­ing. What a dream job it would be. Now, many years later, I find my­self in this po­si­tion.

I’ve been an RC enthusiast since early-child­hood, first shar­ing a Tamiya Boomerang with my brother then branch­ing out on my own with a Tamiya Avante and Team As­so­ci­ated RC10. Those were the days when ra­dios re­quired fre­quency crys­tals and your stan­dard speed con­troller was me­chan­i­cal and used a servo.

Fast for­ward to now. Just as tech­nol­ogy has leapfrogge­d to fre­quency-hop­ping spread spec­trum, lithium poly­mer bat­ter­ies and brush­less mo­tors, so should your mag­a­zine. You’ll start to see some changes to RCCA be­gin­ning with this is­sue and will see grad­ual changes over the next com­ing is­sues. Our aim is to de­liver catered con­tent to to­day’s read­er­ship, which in­cludes you. You are an in­te­gral part­ner and we ap­pre­ci­ate your con­tin­ued sup­port.

We have an ex­cit­ing is­sue for you, which in­cludes a look at a cus­tom mod­i­fied Team As­so­ci­ated RC10B74. We also get the low down on Tamiya’s lat­est chas­sis, the CC-02. You won’t want to miss it. Our res­i­dent builder, Kevin Het­man­ski de­buts his lat­est Special Projects cre­ation, a Traxxas Drag Slash. If you are look­ing to build your own, you’ll def­i­nitely want to check out his com­pre­hen­sive build ar­ti­cle.

Once again, wel­come to the next chap­ter in Ra­dio Con­trol Car Ac­tion’s well es­tab­lished his­tory. Let’s move for­ward and keep mak­ing his­tory to­gether.
