The name is Josh and Tim’s asked me to write a little something on occasion for those of you interested in racing on-road. I should probably start by telling you that I don’t know it all… In fact, I still feel like I know very little. It’s not that I don’t know how to race or what to do to set up a car, it’s simply that I feel it’s always a continual process to get better.
I started racing a few years ago after stumbling across one of the best local r/c shops with a track I’ve ever been to. I took an old Losi Street Weapon I had bought off a coworker and tried to lap the track a few times. Like most new drivers, I was extremely slow and often wrecked… go figure. It wasn’t until a few months ago that I dove in full blast and jumped into a points series. Over the next few weeks, I’ll dive into my r/c story and how and what I’m racing these days.
