TLR 22 completed build

TLR 22 completed build includes electronics and wiring.

Well, the build process of my Team Losi TLR 22 2.0 is finally complete! Everything went well, with no real hiccups or issues. Furthermore, I am very happy with the way the kit turned out! The electronics layout was probably the most difficult, however the end result is very nice. The TLR 22 2.0 includes many new features for a 1/10th scale buggy. It also includes various upgrades from the first generation of the TLR 22 from Team Losi. In my TLR 22 completed build video, I go over how things all came together.

TLR 22 2.0 Un-boxing and Overview

My TLR 22 2.0 un-boxing video.

Christmas came a little bit early for me this year! I have been wanting to get back into 1/10th scale R/C buggy racing for a little while now. So, I decided to take the plunge by buying myself a Team Losi TLR 22 2.0 racing buggy. I am in the progress of building the kit, as I love to do. Also, I already have a bunch of electronics that I picked up as well that need to be installed. I plan to race the TLR 22 2.0 at some indoor off-road race tracks when I have time. Stay tuned for more to come!

Tekno EB48 unboxing

My new 1/8th scale buggy is the feature in this Tekno EB48 unboxing video.

I picked up a 1/8th scale electric R/C buggy for outdoor racing. The quality of this kit and buggy is top notch. The Tekno SCT410 is very similar, which is my short course R/C truck that I already own. In this Tekno EB48 unboxing video I go over all the kit parts that come with the kit. In addition, I also go over the various electronics and other parts that will complete the build. I plan to race the new EB48 at a local outdoor R/C race track that is very large. Once the kit is together, and the electronics are in, it will be time to get this big beast out to the track!

Tamiya F104v2 beginner tips

Tamiya F104v2 beginner tips for the new on-road R/C racer.

I made it out to my first race with my Tamiya F104v2 Pro R/C car this past week. The track was an indoor carpet track at 5280 Raceway in Lakewood, CO. It was quite the learning experience as I have never raced on carpet before! I put together some Tamiya F104v2 beginner tips for those of you like me, who are new to on-road R/C racing. The F104v2 is a great Formula 1 replica kit to begin with. However, these tips and tricks will help you out before starting your first race.

It was only a matter of time before I got back into on-road R/C racing. That is where it all started for me some 20+ years ago with a BoLink Eliminator pan-car! In my Tamiya F104v2 unboxing video I go over the kit contents and my plans for the car. This kit is unique in that is a “Black Edition” which includes all black anodized parts instead of the standard blue parts. I also grabbed a Ferrari 2012 replica Formula 1 body kit and plan to build this kit to scale realism.

Tekno SCT410 vs. Losi SCTE 2.0!

Two short course R/C trucks go head to head in this SCT410 vs SCTE 2 video.

Friday night club racing features my Tekno SCT410 vs. the Team Losi SCTE 2.0 driven by my little brother. The Tekno SCT410 has been the big dog on the block recently. However, the new Team Losi SCTE 2.0 is proving to be a tough challenger. The Tekno SCT410 is big and rugged while the Team Losi SCTE 2.0 is more lightweight. Which one will come out on top? My SCT410 vs SCTE 2 video features head to head racing at Unser Underground.

 

SCT410 first race

My Tekno SCT410 first race is in the books.

After recently completing the build of my SCT410, it was time to test it out at the track. The Tekno SCT410 is a very durable and large “short course” style R/C truck. The truck is very fast and also very fun to drive. My Tekin and Futaba electronics proved to be very reliable as well. For this race I driving at the Unser Underground, which is an indoor off-road R/C track. In addition to short course truck racing, they also have off-road R/C buggy racing. My SCT410 first race was definitely exciting and I am itching for more!
