Away For Some Time
Wow, has it really been that long since I came here and made an entry to my RC Blog?!?!
I've been busy with many other things in my life, but I did have some time to head out flying at our local club's field. I just took the PZ P51 Mustang out to get tuned up, baby I was rusty, but nobody was hurt
So I've started to dust of my planes somewhat and get them back into flying shape. I have also started to paly around with my RC cars again, nothing serious, just toys to zoom around parking lots with at this time. I did go hang around with the Saskatoon Association of Radio Control Auto Racers (SARCAR) An old friend and fellow Racer by the name of Gary Lanzer was there, still racing hard. He even let me take one of his spare cars for a spin!
It was amazing to see how much had changed over the years from when I use to race 1/12 and 1/10 Pan cars. Everything is Touring Cars now. Hard to say if I will get back into racing again, as the time commitment seems it would take more time than I really have to give. However it was fun to hang out and play with RC cars again.
I had also picked up a couple of HPI RC cars for my friend and I to play with. It was what brought me back to interest sake, however we are just having fun running around parking lots. I want to build a Parking lot machine just for speed runs, but I have a lot to learn and adapt to since my days. For the time being I hope to get out flying more and to finish my Nemesis this season.
Thanks For Reading!
I have always wanted one of these back in the day, now it's re-released!
I got a HPI Sprint 2 Sport for my friend new to RC cars, we will upgrade it to brushless when he's ready
I picked me up a HPI Sprint 2 Flux for parking lot abuse, its PDQ
I picked up a 1/10 HPI McLaren body, but it will not fit the Sprint 2 FLux due to how low the body is... The TC Shock towers and main gear are much too high
I may need a pan car to model this McLaren
