Got Beef?

We are now stocking Beef Tubes!!

What is a Beef Tube?
Beef Tubes are an upgrade designed for Axial SCX10 and Axial AR60 axle housings that benefit the rig in several ways. First of all, Beef Tubes give the c-hub mounting screws a solid metal to thread into vs. the stock thin plastic that will strip out very easily. Beef Tubes also BENEFIT the rig by adding non-rotating weight inside the axle housing, keeping a low center of gravity, which in turn allows you to run less weight in your tires. Another benefit of adding Beef Tubes is the fact that they “BEEF” up your axle housing to reduce flexing and possibly breaking the housings itself. Beef Tubes are machined from solid bar stock.

Beef Tubes are proudly made in the U.S.A.!

Introduction of an addict

Hello, my name is Ryan, and I am an Addict.

I have been in and out of the RC hobby for about 22 years now. I was into RC cars as an adolescent and then, around the time I got a real car and girls started being more my focus, I dropped out of the RC scene. I sold off everything. I had mostly just forgot about RC for a long time. I had little dabbling here and there with stuff but nothing major or long lasting. In the spring of 2010, I was working as a project manager on a big project and living out of a hotel 4.5 hours away from my family. I was bored out of my mind and couldn’t really find much to do in the evenings. This got me thinking about RC again. I googled a hobby shop in Harrisburg, PA called Hidden Hangar, and drove over to check things out. I didn’t even know there were such things as RC rock crawlers and scale trucks. (When I got out of it I had been racing buggies and Nitro was the new thing.) In the spur of the moment, I bought an RTR Losi Mini Crawler 5 minutes before the shop closed. I played with it in the parking lot right then and there. After getting back to the hotel room, I got online and quickly learned all I could about them.

A few days later, I went back to the shop and bought a used SCX10 scaler with a Dodge truck body on it. This also came with LiPos that introduced me to a whole new world of power. I would take the truck and go walk the trails of local parks near my hotel and crawl on the rocks. I did my first full on water proofing in a hotel room and destroyed a hotel towel cleaning up greasy parts. Six weeks later, I owned 6 RC’s. I also helped to start up a local crawling club not to far from there that I still keep in touch with. The rest, as they say, became history.

I used my knowledge of web design and server management to help get a couple of clubs up and running. My kids were interested in my new found addiction and I started including them in what I did. I saw a few RC videos on YouTube and that sparked another interest in me, combining my love of RC and my life long dream to be a director.

Life of an RC Addict was born out of the videos I was doing for the local club I founded, Keystone RC, and some how to videos and such. It had a little bit of a rocky start as I learned how to edit and also learned how to not bore people to death. I quickly adapted into showing off my life and some of the things that I love to do, and I tried to not do the same things others were already doing. As I listened to fan input the show became a reality and turned into what it is today. My life, often messy, and my family with me having fun.

I am a self employed computer nerd, and I have 4 kids and a wonderful wife. I live in a small, modest 3 bedroom house in a rural town that doesn’t cost much to live in. All these things are by choice so I can have more money for my addiction. I currently have 19 RC’s and manage one club, and help with another as well as manage web sites for 4 different clubs and host of Facebook groups and of course my own stuff. My children and I compete literally year round in scaler competitions with both clubs. We also host RC Garage night at my house every Wednesday where we wrench, bash, and play.

I have met a ton of really great people thru this hobby and look forward to meeting many more!
