SWorkz 350 RC car, from build to race day...

We are so, so proud of our friend Harry Redstone - he is not only a great RC car racer, he's also pretty good at the engineering behind his cars too.  Here we can follow his new kit, an SWorkz 350, from build to race day...

From a box of bits...


We contribute to Harry's car with a precision Japanese bearing set at this point, but I'm not sure if that's good or bad news will all these bit lying about!!

...to components parts...


...to the finished product!

Check out a vid of the SWorkz in action here...


And so, the car is built & ready for action -  Harry says of this weekends competition "Suprised with my result today, i really liked the set up and found it drove very well, quite a wierd set up at 7,5,5 front to rear - still not happy with this novarossi though, qualified b, 6th and finished b 4th not far off the bump up place! Very good day".



In action on race day...

some vital tune-ups between races...

going for that elusive podium finish...

Well done Harry, you'll always be a number 1 racer to us!  We'll look forward to keeping you up to date with Harry's progress throughout the year.

We also hope to be able to bring you an update from our RC Heli pilot, Ian Emery, very soon - his first competition of the season was last weekend & he'd had a bit of a disaster beforehand - we had an eleventh hour visit for bearings after his heli caught fire in training... more news as soon as we have it!!
