Default Hi new to RC communities

Hello I am just wanting to find some buds to chat with, talk about setups and nerd out. I have a small collection of a couple different ones but right now I bought a vintage bandit on ebay with a cool purple body, sadly without the wing, to race my dad around the half cul de sac track. It is only right turns, about half size on asphalt. He is using a bandit VXL pretty stock minus some SCT wheels and tires in the front and bandito wheels and tires in the back. I am going to try the traxxas street slicks at first to race him, and on brushed at first too since I am poor and stuff haha. I have questions and would love to talk about it but this is just an intro I guess. I am in New Mexico if there are any other fellow RCers out there in the area. I can't seem to find anyone racing in my small ish town so I am just reaching out ya know. Ok , see ya

Hello all, I've been a member of RCTech for many years but, only recently started posting in the past week.

I have a Team Durango DEX410 2010 Spec that I'm currently in the process of upgrading to a v4. I absolutely love this car still as it's just so well balanced, easy to work on, easy to drive and honestly I think it's pretty darn durable especially compared to the Associated cars I've owned in the past.

I also have an Associated B4.2 that I've had for over 14 years now and actually started life out as a B3 and raced in the 17.5 stock class at SDRC many years ago. Finally, I have my basher, an Arrma Typhon 6s.

Well, I look forward to chatting with some or all of ya at some point throughout the forums!

Hey everyone. I used to RC back in the early 2000's and recently found an old b3 and lead me down this journey, again. This time I got a little more money in my pocket and electronics arent so expensive anymore. Now I got a mini b that I use as a trainer and fun all around little guy, a centro b4.2 and now a cougar ld1. I think I like 2wd buggys, can you tell i have a type :P. After a lot of street bashing with the mini, I eventually found a rc carpet track about an hour away from me. As soon as I tried it out I was hooked. Now I cant wait for a day off and go to the track. I even went to my first race since they started a casual sunday morning race.

Hello from the Northeast.

I thought I'd start posting by contributing photos of projects and crawlers but the forum gave me a message that I'm not allowed to?

Just picked up two cars a few weeks ago after not touching my RC10 since the early 90's.

Ironically, I am now building an RC10B 6.4D after 20 or so years not being in the hobby. Wow, a lot has changed, but the fun of building and tinkering with a new car is still the same.

Hi everyone.
New to the forum and to the hobby.
I bought a several of amazon RC's to see if this hobby is for me.
Enjoying bashing for the moment and caught the bug.
I'll bash upgrade and learn off the Amazon RC's

I'm really drawn to SCT's or DB's
Wifey gave me the okay for SCT's or DB's - Looking at Losi, Armma & TA's.
Open to hear your suggestions

Hey from Australia.
I'm a reborn newbie old guy after not being in the hobby for over 30yrs.
I was in the US then and had an original gold chassis RC10.

I ran into a video about the cheapo HBX 16889a Pro basher and thought, for that price, why not.
I wanted to see if it re-sparked my interest in the hobby without spending much.
It has exceeded my expectations.
Things really progressed in 30yrs! haha.

Only 2 packs in and I've stripped it down for a full rebuild with a few upgrades.
We all know that's half the fun. haha.

Already eyeing the MT10 as my next vehicle.
Big soft spot in my heart for Team Associated.

Greetings All,
I am new to the RC game. I got really lucky and won an Element Ecto through a YT raffle. The channel is what got me interested is TOMLEY RC out of the UK. I love my truck and have done a few upgrades. I have been running it around some tree roots in the yard, but I would just love to find an actual trail to run the old girl on. the road. If anyone knows where a good place to go in Okeechobee, FL, that would be great.

I know I am just a FNG, but I feel at home already. Keep up the good work guys.
Semper Fidelis.
