I knew that RC Drag Racing was a thing, it’s been around for a while with various manufacturers making bespoke cars or conversion kits.
However you know that it’s popularity is hitting mainstream levels when Team Associated release a Ready To Run Drag Car, the DR10. Based on always popular SC10, the DR10 Drag Race Car features a water-resistant high-power Reedy brushless speed control and 3300kV brushless motor, a 2.4GHz 2-channel radio system, as well as Associated’s ALL NEW DVC (Dynamic Vehicle Control) receiver unit with built-in adjustable digital gyro.
I’ve not driven a car with AVC or DVC, but I can certainly see it being advantageous in a drag car while trying to keep control and not hit the gutter. I have to say it looks like it would be a lot of fun, how many people buy one, well time will tell I suppose.
