Thanks guys,

Yea next time around i will try for motion blur.. Honesty i was just waiting for my engine to cool a bit so i pulled the camera. Next time boost the ISO a little and i will play more with the shutter. It soo hard to pin them down when chasing them, and i did not want to shoot anything less than the 2.8 as i really wanted the separation from the background.

Excellent captures!!

Makes me want to go out and get another RC car. Too many hobbies and not enough $$$ :(

Any shop owner would be proud to display those, ESPECIALLY if the car was his/hers and not one that "came on the banner from the mfg."

Good job.

Yea they can add up. Especially now with all the brush less stuff.

Raced on the weekend went through 2 gallons of fuel... and at $45 per gallon here in Canada for a decent race blend it adds up!! I also run Electric and just upgraded the electronics in it and it was another $450.. :(

Its funny, Nitro came out because people did not like waiting 24 hours to charge a battery to get 10 mins of run time :D.. Nitro came out and has gone through the roof.. My first gallon was about $8 back in the day now i am paying $48 with taxes. So to go back to Electric the conversion to electic runs around the same cost as a good race motor.. but then you now spend $250 on batteries... lol

Its a crazy cycle.

Wow.

I had no idea of the craziness of prices...last buggy I had was a Kyosho Ultima (external link) and I wired up 2 batteries in series and cooked a couple motors...but boy was it fun to see the Ultima buzz down the street at 2x speed of normal. Didn't handle for poo, but was a hoot in a straight line (until it went out of range and I'd lose control).

I got the buggy for free with the extra motors, or I probably wouldn't have done the "science experiments" with it.

I never got into it enough to call it a hobby. Now that you've "enlightened" me on current costs of the hobby, I'll stick to the ones I currently have a hard time affording ;)

I haven't bought fuel for my t-maxx in a couple of years, but when I last bought it I think I paid about $25/gallon... I don't run it enough to be worth buying a gallon of fuel at a time.

Take lots of memory cards, The action is fast and very little time to chimping your shots. I had a real hard time as it was very over casty.. One second it was sunny then it was dark..

Keep one eye on the race, These things move fast and often you got driver who are simply just new and don't know better.. I can't count how many times i had kits whipping by my head going off a jump wrong, or clipping another car on a straight away.

These things weigh 6-8 pounds of metal, Doing 40+mph driving on the edge of total loss of control.. It does not take much for one to clip something and go air born fast.


Here are a couple of crash shots.

First up is the holeshot at the very start of the race.

And second is the first and second place racers of the A-Main final, the second place racer tried to take the lead on the last jump of the race.. Needless to say he got too over zelous. good thing they where team mates and it all ended well.

And I thougt I was one of the only ones that love to shoot RC Car racing. You have some really nice pictures. They are fun to take pictures of, and racing them for 10+ years helps.
