Get the Inside Track on Losi’s NASCAR R/C Car [Video]

My love for the R/C hobby can’t be rivaled by many things, but something that comes close is motorsport. Losi’s new 1/12-scale NASCAR R/C Car lineup not only looks like a great entry point for new hobbyists, but it’s also a great way for NASCAR fans to take their love for the sport to another level.

Horizon Hobby and Losi are lifting the curtain on how this product was developed with a four-part series detailing the “Inside Track” on this 1/12 NASCAR replica. The first installment recaps Horizon Hobby’s history with NASCAR, ranging from sponsorships to products.

This first episode contains some interesting tidbits. Without spoiling too much, there is shared DNA between the 1/12 NASCAR R/C Car and ARRMA’s 1/18 GROM Monster Truck. There’s more to the story, and it’s worth checking out.
