How I got into scale R/C
I work from home and would often take trips to our local r/c race track when my son was in school. When it closed, I began to go through a withdrawal, if you will. So after a few months of no r/c, my neighbor stops by with something that changed my life. Tom, a major player in 1 to 1 off-roading, strolls by while I’m mowing my yard with a Tamiya copy of his 1 to 1 land cruiser. It was wicked cool.
When I killed my mower, he drove it straight up the curb and into the grass. Those were all things my stadium trucks would not do. I went looking for more information and I found a video on youtube for the Axial Deadbolt… I was hooked.
So being a few months before Christmas, I showed my wife. She shrugged and said “another r/c?” Well, Santa got me a Deadbolt and I started walking to try to lose some weight. Soon, Jr got an Axial Dingo and we started walking as a family, hitting trails and parks around town and we even made it to a Recon G6.
This Christmas, one of my sponsors got wind of a comment my wife made, that she would drive a crawler if it was pink! Well, thanks to Adam Nerby, my wife now drives and seems to like it. She even picked out a Scalerfab bumper for her pink and white VW bug! Enjoy the quick video of one of our favorite local spots.
