1. Whenever you first obtained into RC racing, what professional driver did you look as much as and why? Or possibly there was an area/regional driver that you just adopted?
Once I first obtained into RC, it was all 1/10 oval racing, however I at all times noticed Adam Drake and Brian Kinwald within the magazines. If I’m trustworthy, I actually began following Drake trigger I appreciated his paint job. My present paint scheme continues to be impressed by his, however totally different colours after all. It seems, the extra I adopted him the extra I seen how educated and useful he was and nonetheless is.
2. You probably have been racing for awhile, what would you say is the primary know-how development in RC thus far AND why?
I’d say the most important development needs to be the two.4ghz radios, however the lipo batteries and brushless motors are enormous too.
3. In your opinion, what must be carried out to make RC extra “mainstream” and get extra individuals concerned?
I’m unsure how far more mainstream its going to get actually, however to get extra individuals concerned, I feel everybody must focus extra on their native membership racing and be prepared to assist the brand new guys as a lot as doable. Huge races are cool and I like them, however native membership racing is what builds the passion.
4. So far what’s your favourite JConcepts product of all time and why?
My favourite JConcepts product needs to be the Detox 1/8 scale buggy tire. At my house observe, The Warehouse Pastime Raceway, the Inexperienced compound within the winter and Aqua in the summertime is at all times my “go to” tires. With this tire, my buggy is at all times steady and straightforward to drive exhausting with out errors. When your nickname is “The Hammer”, it’s important to have components you possibly can run exhausting! The opposite cause I like this tire is it lasts a really very long time. This is essential to me as nicely.
5. Title one factor individuals is perhaps shocked to find out about you.
One factor individuals is perhaps shocked to find out about me is I used to pull race a 1000hp outlaw FWD Civic, however I can’t miss the actual fact I’ve obtained the baddest pit chick on the planet!
