Default Racing Redcats in Canada, eh?

Ihaven't heard of any other Redcat-only events, but a local hobby shop (AmazingRCStore.com) started holding customer event last year... and just had the first meet of 2012: a Drag Race!

There was everything from the smallest 1/10th touring cars up to 1/6th-scale brushless monsters: my notes are here: with a couple video clips coming soon.







Even though it's early in the season they still hand a strong turn out. Encourage your local Redcat dealer to host events like these to grow the hobby and their business!

The body is a VW Touareg, and I'm pretty sure the chassis was a Shredder (definately a 1/6th brushless) - it was huge! If you haven't already seen the video Icaught it here.

Hi Mike!

We promise to keep it up and make this events even more and more fun each time!

Update: Next race was yesterday, and this time I won! Thanks to Amazing RC Store for putting on the event - they're doing more to grow the Redcat market than any other hobby shop I've seen!

A few less cars than last time, but here's some pictures: ARCS usually posts to their Facebook page within a couple days of the event with updates: go Like them!
