Hi. After 25 years in the hobby, collecting, playing, and racing, I have decided to write a book about the rc car hobby.

Secrets of Nitro RC Cars eBook

ANNOUNCEMENT: Until the entire book is completed... I have decided to create a mini eBook called "Secrets of Nitro RC Cars". It is about how to get started in nitro or gas powered cars... perfect for beginners, and the engine tuning tips might even help the experienced hobbyists.

Best part is that is I am giving this eBook away for FREE... because I want to promote the hobby and help beginners enjoy nitro cars. To download the book in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) just click on the link below:

To keep the file size low (392KB), the image quality had to be lessened.

Feel free to email the book to your friends. Hope you find it useful.

Good luck!
