RC Car Action

Starting Line


We’re excited that RCX is coming up soon. If you don’t know what that is, it’s the Radio Control Expo and its happening in sunny Southern California at the Fairplex in Pomona on March 26 and 27. Make it out if you can. It’s sure to be filled with all sorts of RC goodness and the RCCA crew will be out in force. Come out have some RC fun and say hi, won’t you?

In the meantime, we’ve got a jam-packed issue for you this month. Our cover features Redcat’s latest RC lowrider, the 1979 Monte Carlo. It features a completely new chassis, new body and is packed with a compliment of five servos. Read more about it later on in this issue. We also assemble and drive Tamiya’s latest high performanc­e two-wheel drive buggy, the Astute 2022. See how we like the new TD2 chassis it is based on.

Traxxas is always on the move and we get to spend time with two of their vehicles, the updated Maxx with Widemaxx and their nitro powered Jato 3.3. See what extreme performanc­e is all about. Arrma’s new BLX 6S based Fireteam assault vehicle is the talk of the RC community. Find out what all the excitement is about in the article “On A Mission.”

Our Features Editor, Lauren Short, concludes Losi TLR 22 5.0 clay terrain buggy trilogy of articles by taking it out for a drive. See how it performs in In-depth Drive. We also get to examine a very cool custom Axial SCX10 III Toyota 4Runner TRD build by popular Youtuber, Mechanic After Hours. You won’t want to miss it. We go all the way to Poland to meet premier RC racetrack designer, Pawel Ntkovca. You may have raced on some of his tracks already and haven’t realized it. Let check out what he has to say about RC tracks.

As always, we enjoy seeing what you are doing with your RC vehicles. If you have a build you’d like to share with fellow readers, consider submitting your ride to be included into out Reader’s Rides department. You can find the easy to submit form at Rccaractio­n.com. It’s never been easier to submit your ride.

Until next time, Jerry Tsai Editorial Director
