RCMSD Team driver tells us about his experience at the 2017 TDC and his 14th "Worlds" finishing position!!
Rally racing on a budget is all about having a competitive car to race but keeping the cost down and maintaining the fun factor! With all the cars being the same, the Losi 1/14th brushless Rally Car. It's all down to the the ability of the driver and not how much money you have to spend on your race set-up. The only upgrades permitted are a 2200mha Black Magic Lipo (£19.99) and you can fit your own radio system.
Ther race series is over six meetings with your top 4 scores going towards your final result. Each meeting will consist of four qualifying rounds and a final. Each of the qualifying rounds and the final will be eight laps with one of your laps being the "Joker" lap. The Joker lap is a little shorter than the normal lap and when you decided to run the Joker lap you have to shout "Joker" to tell race control you are doing your Joker lap. This lap will also be picked up on the timing software so no cheating! ;)
The winner of the series will be crowned the #RCMSD RALLY RACE WINNER and also receive £100 to spend in the shop.

Tonight was our first race meeting of "Run what you Brung!" and it was all about having some fun. With anything goes providing it is electric and 1/8th scale or smaller. It didn't really matter what it looked like all you needed to do was get it round the track!
Through September we asked for your best RC Action Drift pictures to be posted up on our NEW RC Drift Club Facebook group. This had to be a picture of your car in action and not someone else’s car that you have taken a picture of. We received over 70 pictures of some cool action shots. Si “Sideways” Perry of the Lass Tyre Drift Team had to choose the winner from all of these fantastic images which wasn’t to be an easy job. He even took some time out of his business schedule on his last weekend of competing in the British Drift Championship to review the entries upto that point.
A massive thank you to both Tyrone Asquith & Luke Judd
for giving up their full Friday night to layout what looks to be the
best course we have had. The course comprises of 17 gates with obstacles
like the Tube Ramp, The Fallen Bridge, The Seesaw, The Staircase, Rock
Valley & The High Logs to navigate around.
