Interviews: Interview with Ricardo Monteiro 2010 Euro B Champion (1614 Reads)
Posted by admin on Thursday, June 17, 2010 - 05:35 AM
 

RB

Ricardo Monteiro

Coming back from Valladolid (Spain), and after an important relaxing, Ricardo Monteiro, the newest European Champion B 1/8 Off-Road, with only 16 years old, was in Modelcar, the Iberian RB distributor. The opportunity was taken to ask him about the fantastic race. Let him explain:

Modelcar: On a general view, what do you think about your race?
Ricardo: In Portugal, and now, during the Worlds of Football, we use to say “I got a feeling”, and Mr. Luis Freitas, of Modelcar, was always saying it. In fact I had a feeling. When we came to the Warm Up, in April, the race was well and we got the 3rd. place. But the most important was that we knew the track, we got a good set up and we tested a lot of things, so we were very comfortable to the Euro race and we knew that we would make a good race. Of course to make a good race is one thing and win the race is completely different. Global viewing, we think that all of us were very good, not only me, but also my father and mechanic, Mr. Eric Aita, of RB, giving me the perfect engine, and Mr. Yannick Aigoin, of Losi, helping us when necessary.

Interviews: Josh Pain Talks RC8B! (2328 Reads)
Posted by admin on Monday, June 29, 2009 - 01:13 PM
 

piraterc.com news

Buggy-Pitstop.com: Team Associated have released the new RC8B. What are the main difference they have made between the old RC8 and the new RC8B?

 

Josh Pain: Obviously from the photos, are the new blue aluminum shock towers, which transform the car into a totally different machine from the old model. Along with other changes, are new steering geometry, plastics and a hot set of aluminum pivot blocks. Things that don’t stand out are things like lightweight engine mount and the new battery box and the list goes on.

 

All I can say is that since I have been running the new car, my results have gone from mid pack to the pointy end of the field, with two top qualifiers, 3 pole positions and a title win this year at Nationals Series Events.

I think that speaks for itself as far as how much better the new car is.

We sit down with what has become our annual chat with Tim Roberts. The 2008 Monster Truck Champion.

RC Pro: This seems like deja

Seems we did this about a year ago?

Tim: And a year before that too! I've been very fortunate the last three years to claim the RC Pro Monster truck title.

RC Pro: Which also makes you the only racer to win 3 RC Pro titles in the same class! as well as the only one to win 3 straight!

Tim: That's not so say the competition hasn't been strong though.

RC Pro Series

NEW MEMBER OF THE TAMIYA TEAM

RYAN LUTZ

I finally had a chance to set down for a chat with Ryan Lutz the RC Pro International Buggy & Arena Truck Champion for 2008. As I always do I try to take a different approach to these interviews than the standard. It helps that I see these racers at numerous events over a period of years and have gotten to know most of them pretty well so I aim for more of a conversation than prim and proper interview. I hope you enjoy the first one from our 2008 Champions.

RC Pro Series

How long have you been in RC?
I have been in RC for about 13 years.

I know your Dad has always been your pit man at the races I have been at did he get you into RC or did you get him into it?
My dad got me an rc10t sport for Christmas one year; it took us I think, 5 or 6 months to build it. I was only supposed play with it in the yard, but I wanted to go to the track and race when we got it done. And the rest was history.

RC Pro Series

This interview is with Cody King the 2007 Expert Buggy National Champion.

Cody. First things first congratulations on the 2007 Expert Buggy Championship!
For those people who may not know you or haven't followed you can you give some background as in how many years have you been racing, where did you start racing etc.?


Thanks Carlton, and thanks for all your hard work last year. I have been racing for about 9 years. I had a couple gas trucks when I was a kid, just having fun in the street. I got started racing in a buddy's back yard were he had a track. My friends raced at Socal in Huntington Beach, and that's where the more serious racing started for me. Allot of people were into electric back then. Kinwald was basically winning everything, it was a good experience.

Tim Roberts Interview by RCPRO

A little background for those who have been without total communication for the last 2 years. Tim is the 2006 and 2007 RC Pro Monster Truck Champion. He drives and works for Traxxas. So let's find out a little more about this Champion that burst onto the racing scene in 2006.

RC Pro. Tim let's start with the question most of RC was asking in 2006. Who are you and where did you come from?

Tim. I was born and raised in Libertyville, IL, a northern suburb of Chicago. Growing up I always had a passion for racing and tinkering with mechanical things. I spent most of my free time out in the garage or workshop building, repairing, and modifying anything from boats to lawnmowers to cars and go-karts. We used to live on a big dead end road, so my brother and I would race the go-kart around the neighborhood in time trials. My first exposure to actual racing came when I was given a 1/24th scale slot car kit as a gift to run at the local track. I was usually racing against guys two or three times my age, with years of experience. I managed to do very well, and had lots of fun. I actually attribute most of my RC driving composure and throttle control to racing slots cars when I was younger.
