He is the creator of the most amazing Sprint 2 in the entire World. If you are into RC it’s impossible you don’t know his rat rod. Rustik is known in RC community as the magician builder that makes insanely great stuff, and has a thing to scale rubber chickens 😉 You should check out his Instagram profile to see what he’s up to right now – you’re gonna be impressed.

It’s an absolute honor to be able to post answers to “5 questions to:..” from the master himself, @rustik1972!


  1. How has your RC adventure started and what was your first RC?

Got started around ’82 with a RadioShack jeep. Upgraded to a Tamiya Hornet shortly after. Bounced in and out of the hobby since then.

  1. Which RC (that you own or owned) is your favorite?

Even though I’m more of a trail guy my favorite RC has to be my Sprint 2.

  1. What is your dream RC?

Dream RC is hard to say. I don’t think the perfect one for me is out there yet. If it was I wouldn’t get as much out of this hobby as I do. So the dream RC for me would be the one that hasn’t hit my workbench yet.

  1. What do you like the most in this hobby?

Other than the fabrication aspect of RC the people I’ve met are awesome. No matter if you’ve known them for years or 15 minutes there isn’t anyone I’ve met that I didn’t like.

  1. What are 4 things that you always take on your RC adventures?

Things I always take with me are tools, batteries, a friend and a couple scale rubber chickens.
