Lightbulb HRS Damping Plate / RC Cars

I was into RC Cars pretty heavily 20+ years ago. I recently decided to get back into the hobby with a 1/8 scale AARMA Typhon.

In the meantime, Iím getting all the needed accessories. Boy has the hobby evolved!

Here is my new RC Car stand with an HRS DPX Damping Plate as a weighted base.

Now that you are a "Cool Grandpa", RC Cars/Trucks make perfect sense again.

Go easy with the 1/8 scale and 70mph models, they pack a ton of energy as E=MC2 and something has to give when they meet a stationary object... Keep yourself and others away from its path. These are not the toys from 20 years ago.

I suggest a ramp for jumping action fun and learning to control the model in the air.

I never knew you were into these things Ivan... I spent 2 months of the Covid lock down also building a Traxxas UDR and super customized it... but I found that after getting it running, the fun was gone... I liked the build process. Anyway, the costs of building my HiFi system took over and now I want to sell the car, but the time and money I put into it makes that hard.

You're into Traxxas as well? I have way too many of them.

I do love the smell of NITRO in the morning. https://youtu.be/XcY7pIl6EjY

Way cool.

Iíve wanted to get into Traxxas.

Where does a guy like me get started (without opening the wallet too much).

What do you want to do with it? General parking lot driving fun (bashing)?

Do you want a more scale look and take it on trails as an off-road vehicle?

Do you want to find a local racetrack and race? On road or Off Road?

There are many themes and variations these days.

On the low end of RC car fun you can do it for a few hundred bucks or it can get into the $1k plus range and higher for really big gas powered models.

Ivan, here is an Arrma that will get the adrenaline going. "Infraction"

Awesome for drifting practice.


Only took me 35 seconds to get into a wreck on my street. No big deal, it only took 5 min and $30 worth of parts to get it running again.

I live on a cul-de-sac, so mostly horsing around with my sons out front.
