Default Questions & Suggestions

What is RCT about? Is it a Racers forum? a RC Enthusiasts forum? a Bashers forum? When I have a look around I see theres a bit of everything in here but the general 'feel' is it's a racers forum (my opinion).
There is no bashers subforum, no section dedicated to videos, why is this?... Where is the 'About RC Tech' button that explains what the forum is about and what type of community exists here?

I'm from Australia and am a basher at heart with very little interest/experience in racing. I'm here because all other 'RC basher' type forums are either dead or have gone offline. I feel like the 'non racing' RC community is almost completely dead so this is pretty much the last RC forum I can come to, to see some activity and perhaps pickup a bargain in the for sale section.

If this forum is open to bashers, I feel like now is the time to embrace it before we disappear altogether. Give us a new section dedicated to bashing or simply make a clear statement that bashers are welcome to post anywhere that's not clearly marked a racing subforum. Or not, if bashers aren't welcome or dont feel welcome, make it loud and clear?

Cheers

Racing has always been more dominant here. But there is a mix of users here. And threads for most vehicles. Now as for activity in these threads. Well thatís going to depend on the vehicle. Remember that 1/2 the world is heading into winter. A lot of owners shutdown during winter months.


Iím expecting this to get moved to chat lounge.

Why would it be moved to the chat lounge? I created this thread to seek answers from authoritative members and also provide some feedback...

Just seen a number of threads get moved over past few months.

I understand what you are asking. I had same feeling when I first started coming here. But over time I’ve found there are plenty of non racers here. Or those that do both. It’s just the numbers are down. It’s not just here. It’s all forums. If traffic was booming I’m sure URC would have been back up running by now.
Unfortunately Facebook is becoming the go to place. Most seem only interested in the vehicle they own. Plus the hobby overall has been in a down cycle. Most brands are jumping into the scaler market. Most of scaler post are build threads. Interesting reads, but not what the “basher” might be looking for.

Rule #1 when looking for a forum to be active in, don't be a dink and insult the mod staff! Enjoy your 30 days smart guy
