How did you get started?:As a kid I always had a fascination with building things and tinkering. Models, bicycles, electronics, etc. So getting into RC was just a natural progression. I tried most of the popular types of RC; cars, boats, planes, helicopters, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I got into offroad racing that I really got hooked and still am! I really got hooked on the racing bug from racing onroad nitro, however that scene dried up and I took a few years off. The popularity of 1/8th nitro and the access to an outstanding indoor clay track (for racing 1/10th) got me back into it and I have not looked back since!
