Default The Godfather of RC

My vote goes to BudBud. He is always there with advice, tips, suggestions, and the willingness to go that extra mile to help out those in need. Puts others misfortunes into consideration when he goes into his hobby store of parts and things. Helps out those who have misfortunes and problems in their lives. My hat is off to you my brother, YOU DA MAN!!!!!!!!!!!

Bob. I remember when the first ESCs came out, most racers swore that their MSCs were smoother, better, more direct and easier to drive, that no one would ever be able to win a race with an ESC and that they would just be a passing fad, never able to measure up to a good solid MSC. Despite all the myths, naysayers, controversy, urban legends, and superstition, his ESCs caught on and pretty much transformed electric racing. Even today a lot of new technologies (brushless, lipo, etc.) go through this same cycle; while the temptation for commercial companies is too often to reinforce and hang on to the old ways (ie. Trinity with early brushless), he was willing to take a risk and it's things like this that move the industry forward. The state of today where electric has far surpassed nitro would not have happened but for Bob and the very early ESCs.
