RC Driver Magazine Out of Business

RC Driver Magazine Out of BusinessWe regret to report that another great RC car magazine is out of business. It recently came to our attention that many of our fellow RC enthusiasts haven’t been receiving their monthly subscription issues of RC Driver Magazine. We also haven’t been able to find it for sale locally. After a bit of digging we found a statement from RC Driver’s publisher which officially confirms that they have ceased operations. It appears that Editor, Greg Vogel, will continue running the magazine’s website independent of the publisher. Since 2003, RC Driver Magazine has offered RC hobbyists over 150 issues packed with excellent reviews, how-to articles and readers rides. Even our very own Tamiya High Lift was featured in the Show Offs section in the August 2015 issue. We will definitely miss looking forward to each issue. RIP RC Driver Magazine! Read more…

Team Associated

Team Associated LogoTeam Associated or Associated Electrics Inc of Lake Forest, California is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of radio controlled cars, trucks and accessories.

So successful was the venture that it turned into a full-time business which they named Associated Electrics. The new company specialized in the manufacturing of a full line of slot car parts, chassis and accessories. Read more…

Traxxas

TraxxasTraxxas or the Traxxas Corporation is a Texas based radio controlled car manufacturer. It was founded in 1986 by Jim Jenkins and David Katz who’s goal it was to build hobby grade RC cars that were ready to drive right out of the box, a novel idea at the time. Traxxas dubbed these vehicles as Ready to Run or RTR, a term that is commonly used in the business today. To satisfy the needs of the RC purist, Traxxas would eventually go on to offer many of the RC cars it produced in the 1990’s in kit form. In 1994, Jim Jenkins sold his share of the business to David Katz. In the years proceeding, Traxxas released multiple popular RC cars and trucks including the Nitro 4-Tec and T-Maxx. It wasn’t until 2003 that the Traxxas Corporation would return to the Jenkins family when Jim’s son Mike Jenkins, who was the company’s first employee, purchased it from David Katz and renamed the company Traxxas. Since then Traxxas has produced many iconic RC models including the Slash which was the first contemporary style production RC short course truck. Read more…
