Ryan,

Thats for sharing this info it was a good read.

It take a HUGE dedication and drive especially when your successfully a lot of high and low points. Much motivation its a attribute which comes from doing things the correct way from a positive influence.

I have some additional questions

1) Who was your biggest influence in RC racing?

2) Engine endorsemento PRO's run MOD motor from the factory whats the percentage between the TOP racers.

3) When your racing a season how many kits do your start with for one class example buggy?

4) Tires: Whats your best pointer for picking the right tire for the right condition.

I have some additional questions

1) Who was your biggest influence in RC racing? My dad got me started when I was young. He had already been in it for a long time and allowed me to start racing when I was 7. So I guess with him getting me started and 'holding my hand' through the time I was around 19 would make him my biggest influence.

2) Engine endorsemento PRO's run MOD motor from the factory whats the percentage between the TOP racers. I honestly can't speak for anyone else but myself. I 95% of the time run stock out of the box engines. At the very most I will take them apart and make sure they are clean before starting them. The other 5% of the time may involve testing of some sort.

3) When your racing a season how many kits do your start with for one class example buggy? Every company and drivers deal is different. Most the companies I have been with it is based on your deal and if you 'need' a new one or not. With all the racing and practice we do our cars get pretty thrashed. On top of that being under the microscope all of the time as I've mentioned before makes it hard for pros to run old stuff. Because if something that is old goes bad it makes them and the car look bad because people don't take the time to understand the back story on why something may have broken...I'd say in a full racing season the most new kits I have ever had was 3. Most of the time it is just replacing worn parts.

4) Tires: Whats your best pointer for picking the right tire for the right condition.
If it's your local track see what is winning and when. If your traveling to a race ask on forums and such before you go. Another good way is to pick a tire that is a pretty universal compound and tread pattern, for instance soft cityblocks. Something that works pretty well everywhere. Then really get used to that tire and a lot of times you won't want to run anything else because you are comfortable with that tread pattern no matter where you race. People make a huge deal out of tires and while yes they are important I honestly think that being comfortable with something you know sometimes is more important than that couple 1/10ths of a second.

Most of the time they are so thrashed they end up in pieces on a shelf. Depending on the company I am with sometimes I am able to give an old one to a deserving racer or something along those lines but honestly when I'm done with a car it needs more money in parts than a new one would cost.

I really hope that shows people how committed and how confident I am in this company! They truly are a company I am proud to be a part of!

Thanks for the article Ryan! In this day and age, it's rare to see people put themselves out there with as much candor and sincerity.

Kudos as well on the long-term deal, which is even more rare. Says a lot about your character, and for that, kudos should go to your folks too.

Apart from the monetary value, I think that you can just make a living (not necessarily getting filthy rich) doing what you love is in itself PRICELESS. I'm sure not a few of us here would give up a higher paying job -- which might not necessarily be our passion, gives us stress, which would eventually lead to some stress-induced ailment, and early death -- for a career in something we're truly passionate about.

How many can really say that they're passionate about being a banker, a manager, a supervisor, an accountant? I think true passions are those that stirred your imagination when you were a kid, something like being a basketball player, a fireman, James Bond, or a member of the A-Team.

And that's what RC racing probably is to you -- something that got you excited as a kid, and let's you get excited like a kid even as an adult. Priceless, right?
