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.
