Winter Indoor Racing with ARCC

ARCC have just started their winter indoor racing series for 2016-17, which includes painted-concrete oval racing for 1/10 electric buggies every Friday, and carpet circuit racing for both 1/10 and 1/18 4WD electric touring cars every other Sunday at the Legion in Enfield. The guys at Mighty Small Cars have the full details, and can help you out with appropriate tires.

The touring cars run foam tires, 2S lipo packs and typically brushless motors (although brushed equipment is probably allowed too). The doors open at noon every other Sunday starting on 6th Nov 2016. Full calendar available here and a few more details in the image below.

The 1/10 buggies run rubber road-treaded/slick tires on a concrete oval circuit using 2S lipo and brushless motors. They started last Friday (14th October 2016) but the full calendar is available here and a few more details are in the image below.

Halifax RC On-Road Racing

BMW Schnitzer M3 Evo

A few local RCers got together for a late-evening throw-down onroad touring-car race session at MicMac Mall over the weekend. This is the second outdoor event put on by some of the guys from Halifax RC On-road Racing (on FaceBook) and a great time was had by all. Ten to twenty 5-lap races were held on a short and tight track for 1/10 scale touring cars. If you’re interested in attending or spectating this sort of event then keep an eye on the Halifax RC On-road Racing group.

Here’s a short video of some of the action and some close up action.

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:
