RC cars/Trucks

Hey, Anyone else into RC land vehicles? I was as a kid and just got back into it last week. Man my son and I are having a blast. We picked up a Traxxas rustler 4x4 and installed a castle Creations SW4 esc with a four pole 1410/3800kv motor, got 2s and 3s lipos. Also the blue tooth module so we can fine tune car from our iPhones etc. I’ve got it geared for 20 mph on 2s for my kid and 40 ish mph on 3s for me!
Anywho not a cheap hobby but fun!

Try to rc Canada or rcgroups, the RC hobby is a niche of all hobbies and not cheap one for sure. You will find the hobby expand to airplane boat heli drones etc a huge universe kind, so try search rcuniverse.
you won't see much response from this deal forum. Lol.

I used to race 1:10 electric on road cars when they used to hold race events in Sauga. Not a fan of off road racing, but I believe there is a off road racing track still on 9th line and Britannia.

It is a fun and expensive hobby (things break all the time and parts are quite expensive). Youre fortunate though you have a son you can enjoy it with!
