Back to Indoors - Hobby Letter #13/22

19.9.2022

Hello! This is Heikki from EuroRC reporting in! Busy weeks behind again, thank you for keeping our Storage Room people running! Here in hazy swamps of Tavastia temperatures dropped first time below the zero during the night. This means that the outdoor season is officially over.

Pack it up guys, we are moving back inside!

Today we introduce ourselves to one of the most popular indoor RC racing classes nowadays and learn what is needed to build a fun Drifter out from Touring Car kit. Read on!

Real RC Off-Road is always driven indoors and in carpet! Remember to support your local track.

Burn Baby Burn!

So, what are your plans for next indoor season? I have been lately very much tempted by easy-to-approach competition sport of Tamiya RC 1:14 Racing Trucks. You know, those pulling tractors of mega-haulers transformed to wheel burning, street racing diesel beasts.

There is just something extraordinary cool in them as they are not supposed to be racing cars by their nature. In our world of RC these race tractors are also very popular and easy-to-approach competition class. RC Truck Racing is very equal and simple by its rules and is therefore very newbie friendly.

Straight quote from Tamiya USA Official Rules: "This is a pure box stock class open to any skill level hobbyist.". Quite simple! Only allowed upgrade is to change ball bearings in your truck. You are also required to build your car EXACTLY per the instruction manual. Leave no screws behind!

Read the full and official rules here from Euro Truck Racing League. I just love that it is a box stock class!

Tamiya 1/14 R/C Tankpool24 Mercedes Actros (TT-01E) is latest hire in Tamiya Racing Truck crew. Available soon!

Maybe it is because of the approachable nature, RC Truck Racing has become hugely popular last few years. So popular that we are totally sold out at the moment! Our Research Team did some investigation about the issue and found few hidden kits lurking around. They should be here in our Storage Room this or next week.

Now, hear me out if you want one of these! Head to the product page and fill our famous and trusted Notification to Email -field. Our system will remind you when the items are back in stock.

Act quick and stay alert, there is lots of demand now for these unearthly awesome racing truck kits!

Like A Drifter I Was Born

Delicate sport of RC Drifting has been around for over a decade now and we can see here at the shop the trend that it is getting popular again. We will always have plenty of excellent Ready-to-Run Drift cars ready to ship anytime you feel like but hey what if we build our own ground up from the Kit?

I also know that many of you have plenty of RC stuff lying around te house so now is a perfect time to blow out the dust from that old touring car project you never finished and turn it to something sweeter.

Want the best? You can take a dive straight to the deep end with top quality RC Drifter Kit from Yokomo. When it comes to Drift cars, Yokomo is the champion. Sorry fan boys, put the pitchforks down but this is the truth! These dedicated kits are designed ground-up only for sideways fun but you can build a well performing drift car from almost any Touring Car kit too.

Just make few modifications and you are all good to have some tricky but very satisfying drift fun. Our Team of Professionals recommends you with this setup:

What is needed to build a RC Drift Car

To smash it in nutshell - just take any Touring Car kit or something that looks like one, install fast-enough electronics, throw set of drift tires under, pack up the rear diff with super thick fluid and you are good to go! However, it is very true that a real RC drifters skate in the class of their own. Just like all other professional level kits do.

If you want to try this sport out with budget first, please try our tasty recipe and add spice of your own. Remember to share your cookings with us!

What happen!? A Mild Sand Scorcher build appears! I've been putting this baby up for a some time now and what was stalling this project was the body. You know the feeling when you start to search quick paintwork inspiration from the net and fall deeper in to the rabbit hole..

After a one year of looking some of the most awesome Baja Beetle builds I woke up from my lucid dream and.. yes, Classic Box Art it will be! I used the best spray paints of the world and a sweet 3D printed scale engine designed by Knight Customs.

I do have another Sand Scorcher body hidden somewhere here in my office so maybe I'll make something more cool out of that one. Maybe another box art because I have such wild imagination!

Remember to keep those pics coming folks, just reply to this mail and attach all your great RC goodness! Right now I am after Indoor RC pics and those sexy drifters. Hit me up!

Keep it sideways and always full throttle!
