If we think about our first Recon G6(s), one of the first people that come to mind are our today’s guest and his girlfriend.

You can write “our story” in a few sentences: Everything started with my battery issues. Than there were our 1:1 car issues. Than his 1:10 rig issues. And 1:1 😉 And Italian my rig/his rig issues. And then there was peace 😉 But during all of this we had a chance to talk a lot, joke, drive and make repairs and have tons of fun! 🙂 He and his girlfriend are one of the people we miss the most and wish to meet again as soon as possible 🙂

I always write, that “we present to you answers to our ‘5 questions to:..’ with a great pleasure”. And this time is no different – we had our ups and downs 😉 , but all in all I think that I can call our today’s guest a good friend, and I hope he can say the same about me. It’s Sasa Pahic Szabo everyone! 🙂

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

My RC adventure started in 1996  when my dad bought me a Tamiya Ford Mondeo BTCC FF-01 car when we were on holiday in Strasbourg, France. I collected a couple more Tamiya cars until 2001 when i went away to University. Fast forward to 2012 when I had to pack up my room at home because my mother was selling the house. I moved my books and my RC cars.

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

Im torn between my Tamiya TA03F Audi STW and the Axial SCX10 Cherokee. Even though i pretty much spend all of my time and money on the Cherokee for the last 2 years, the TA03F does have a special place in my heart.

  1. What is your dream RC?

The dream would be a complete scale RC package made by GCM. If Chris could put the quality and workmanship into a truck body, that he puts into the wheels and chassis I’m sure it would be a winner .

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

What I like most about scalers is that its so different from the other surface RC types. It is slow, technical, you get to tinker around with them much more than your typical RC, where you just change parts. Here you can make the parts yourself and gain and apply 1:1 off road knowledge. Also the community is very nice and not so much performance orientated . And not to mention all the free exercise you get running after the trucks 😀

  1. What are 4 things that you always take on your RC adventures?
  2. a plastic bag for the transmitter . Learned my lesson in the rain in Italy this year.
    2. the iPhone
    3.  the backpack with essential nuts and bolts and tools and space for the Cherokee.
    4. my lovely girlfriend Mojca – Imbi, because she is a better driver than me , but she doesn’t believe me.
