CAMix Auto Show review

The Halifax RC Drifters (HRCD) shared their RC demonstration area with a few of us from the Halifax RC Park society. We all had a great time talking to you about the RC hobby and we hope you’ve found your way here to our website which has some great information for beginners in our menus above. Below are a few photos from the show and the HRCD crew have more photos on their Facebook group.

The guys at Halifax RC Drifters are again putting on a dynamic display of drifting at the full-size CAMix auto show in Dartmouth at the weekend (Sunday 21st August 2016 from 11-4pm). A few of us from Halifax RC Park will also be there at A&W Woodside in Dartmouth with an assortment of RC vehicles on display and to answer any questions you might have about the hobby. The CAMix show is free to attend but money is being raised for the Christmas Daddies charity.

We had fun at the library

Just a quick note of thanks to those of you that foregoed the amazing weather yesterday to stop by the Keshen Goodman Public Library to say hi to us. The guys from the Tamiya Crew had fun and we hope those of you that did visit managed to take a good and detailed look at all sorts of RC cars we had on display, or managed to see the drift cars running outside. We know we’ve got some of you thinking about a new RC car! Those of you that didn’t make it out we hope at least had some RC fun outside, and we ourselves were itching to hit the trails and tracks afterwards.

Check out some photos of our display below:

RC for everybody this weeked

Lets hope the weather holds this weekend as there’s a lot of local RC groups with fun events planned. Spectators and newcomers are welcome at all of them but contact the organizers if you have any questions.

Friday 27th May – 6pm. The Halifax RC Drifters will be out at the parking lot behind H&R Block on Joseph Howe Drive. The parking lot is nice and flat, open with very few obstacles to hit which makes it a great location for those who’ve never RC drifted before. As the sun sets in the sky, the relistic headlights really make for a good spectacle. All the details here on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/533188603550630/

Saturday 28th May – 11am. The Vintage RC Halifax group are running the first event for vintage RCs expertly called “Brittle Plastic”. Those of us with older R cars know all about what that means. Vintage typically means something over 15 years old – but most slower RC vehicles are welcome as the track is nice and cosy at the Full Gospel Church on Larry Utek/Hammonds Plains Road. More details here on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/1765266160374390/

Sunday 29th May – 2pm.  The Tamiya Crew are hosting “RC Aces High” typically for Tamiya cars but open to everyone. Again play-racing will take place at the small off-road track at the Full Gospel Church on Larry Utek/Hammonds Plains Road so no need for high voltage high powered RC machines. More info on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/1754594664821619/. These guys are also growing a great beginner race series using box-stock self-build Tamiya TT02B 4WD buggies. If anyone is even remotely considering getting into off-road RC racing, this is a great starting point. More information about Formula TT02B here: https://www.facebook.com/FormulaTT02BInfo/
