We knew, he existed when we were going to Recon G6 in Austria 😉 but in all the craziness we just talked to him maybe for 1 minute, somewhere on the course. That’s it. When we realized that, after getting back home, we didn’t know if we should laugh or cry 😉
But fortunately we had a chance to talk to him more during Italian Recon G6. Not only talk, but also spend lots of time together – it was so much fun listening to his story about his trip to the US and time he spent with mr Parker himself, you wouldn’t believe 😀 It was also fun, when we “found” him on the track, when he was looking for a “swamp monster”, when he tow my #ProjectG6 for half of the second course, when we were waiting for him to repair his rig(s) before going to the night run.. The list can go on and on 🙂 After reading this intro you can imagine, how much we wish we were living closer to him, so we had more chances to trail together 🙂
With a great pleasure we present to you answers to “5 questions to:..” from someone, that is a part of our greatest memories from this year’s european Recon G6s. His name is – Chris Scheurer (@chris_nf303)! 😀
ps See you next year, my friend 😀
1. How has your RC adventure started and what was your first RC?
As a kid I always prefered to play with remote toys and my first real RC was a Tamiya TL-01b. The Baja King with it’s terrible manual speed controller! Most of the time when i switched the car on it just started driving uncontrollable against something. My dad took me to an RC track – but he did’t know that at that day there was an Austrian touring car championship run. I decided to run my buggy on the gravel parking lot. After less than 5 minutes one of the touring car drivers came over to me and forced me to shut the car off. At that time I did not know, that one poor guy at the Championship run must have had the same quartz in the Transmitter, that i had – ooops, but hey, I was only 9 years old 😀
2. Which RC (that you own or owned) is your favorite?
My favorite RC is one my Axial SCX-10s. It is the Martini Racing Blechmonster. I took SCX-10 Axles and a ladder frame under a Vaterra Twinhammers Cage. With that rig, I’ve been traveling through the US for 8 weeks recently. The car has seen some of the most amazing places, I have ever been to.
3. What is your dream RC?
I am always amazed by the hydraulic excavators at model fairs. I’d love to build one one day, but I think once it’s finished, I’d play with it for a couple of hours and then start building something else
4. What do you like the most in this hobby?
In this hobby i like most, that I can build so much stuff on my own. With those cars I can relax and challenge myself with thinking and fabricating. The self-made interiors don’t get destroyed because the cars are slow compared to a basher.
5. What are 4 things that you always take on your RC adventures?
#1 My Recon G6 backpack with all the tools and spare parts in it
#2 the car
#4 as many RC fellas as possible
