February not only marks the start of the NASCAR season but it’s also a great opportunity to charge up your R/C machines and flex your competitive muscles. The folks at Hobbico and Keep It RC did just that with the running of their inaugural “Hobbico 500”.
This race placed four drivers in a head-to-head battle with Axial Yeti Jr. Rock Racers on custom, indoor track. Not only does the Yeti Jr. make an appearance, but there are also other radio-controlled vehicles used in this competition, including an ARRMA Granite Monster Truck (pace truck) and an Axial SCX10 II Trail Honcho (wrecker/tow truck).
While this video serves as an advertisement for a number of Hobbico’s vehicles, it features some unique products and configurations (such as the towing crane on the SCX10 II). In all, it’s a fun way to enjoy the R/C hobby and gives me some ideas for an indoor track of my own.
