Thankfully, there are a number of YouTube channels devoted to R/C cars, but what if you’re not able to devote eyeball time to learning about the ins and outs of the hobby?

- The RC Car Cast – If scale rigs and drifting are your areas of focus, you’ll want to check out the shows that the folks at the RC Car Cast put out. Informative and entertaining. That’s a tough combination to beat!

- RC Racing TV Podcast – This is a show that I have just discovered myself and felt it was worth including in the list. This looks to be a great show for racers both in the U.S. and abroad.
Shameless plug: If you’re looking for even more RC info in audible form, please check out the RC Newb Podcast, a blend of information from folks (such as myslef) that have an undying passion for the hobby of radio-controlled cars.
