Hi guys. I recently joined Facebook, look for Joel Mangilit. Let's all share photos and racing events on the hobby we all love. Add me up :)

Traxxas RC Trucks Comparison

I took some time to put into excel a comparison of the popular electric and nitro rc trucks from Traxxas. The brushless ready to race electric trucks are 30mph out of the box and can hit 60mph with a 3s Lipo pack. The nitro rc trucks are just as fast. Hope this comparison helps you choose, it's in a picture format so you can easily download for reference. 


Local Hobby Shops Directory

To help grow the hobby, I've started to list down hobby shop names and contact details that I've bought from in the USA, Hong Kong and the Philippines. If you have a hobby shop to recommend, simply send me an email with the details and I'll add to the list.

Tamiya Asia Cup

Just reminiscing of an overseas race that I had lot's of fun. It's the Tamiya Asia Cup. There's a video on the page to give you a feel of what tye of racing was done.

Thanks for reading. Hope it was helpful and fun. Until next week.


P.S. Was a busy weekend, yesterday my daughter and I attended an rc race in the rally class. Today I'm off to a big off road track to race in the 4wd electric buggy class with a Tamiya Durga and Novak 4.5r brushless motor.
