About While My Batteries Charge RC Podcast
Axial is going and tugging on some of my heart strings with their latest release of the CJ-7. I'm not nostalgic of anything CJ-7 related, but rather the type of driving they showed in their release video as it reminded me of the RC crawling that got me hooked 8 years ago. Before I talk about that, we'll talk about the comp I was at last night and then compare the Losi LMT Mini and the ARRMA Granite Grom.
I have been so excited about the release of the LMT Mini ever since I heard it was being made. We've been working hard to build up interest in mini RC Monster Trucks for a couple years and this release takes them to a whole new level. Losi absolutely nailed it on this release. I'm also really excited about the Losi RZR Rey and the scale performance it delivers. As my bashing style has changed to a bit more of a scale driving style, I appreciate vehicles like this so much more. This episode also goes into a little bit of the personal side of RC and life for me and where things went sour and how I'm working to bring it back fresh.
Coming to Horizon RC Fest or Axialfest Badlands? Bring your SCX24s and AX24s to have some fun Carnival Comp'ing with us. Next weekend we'll be at Horizon RC Fest June 9-10 with One24Mop putting on a fun comp for 1/24th scale crawlers. At Axialfest Badlands we'll be using the same rules, but using the natural settings near the 1/24 course they setup because it's the perfect terrain. Because comps are not the main focus of either event, we've created some rules and 5 different classes to keep it easy for anyone to participate. It's different than we normally comp, but we've run them like this before and it's a lot of fun. The rules can be found on my website: https://www.ccxrc.com/1-24-carnival-comp-rules Be sure to check out the mobile trailer. http://one24mop.com/
Putting things from the past couple weeks to bed and moving on so I can find the joy in RC again. Running RCs puts a huge smile on my face again and that's what I'm looking to get back to. On top of that, I found that Kyosho release a Mini-z 4x4 Defender 90 that is beautiful and Gens Ace new D300 charger is amazing. Let's talk about it.

"What happened to the podcast? We love it. We want more episodes" - While My Batteries Charge Listeners. I have heard you loud and clear. Please know that the podcast isn't going away. I'm always shocked by how many people I meet in person always mention the podcast. It's crazy. Thank you for your patience. I'm working to reboot things around here and make more time for the podcast. Hopefully this one will help explain why there haven't been very many in 2023.
It's finally here! The episode I've been teasing for a while...how 24th scale RC crawlers are similar to what the hobby train scene was like many years ago. People are building courses in their house to run these mini crawlers. I had Jaysen's RC's on with me to discuss it. Sub to Jaysen's RCs: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3_18No-HmTDLiY6fGDYfJA
Happy New Year you RC Freaks! I'm super excited about the possibilities for 2023. It's nice to start with a clean slate and a clear mind for the year. My goal is to work harder to make my 2022 goals have even more of an impact on my personal RC journey–and that starts with learning to say "No." As a "helper" personality, that is hard for me to do. I like to say yes and help people, but I'm at the point where it's no longer helping people as I can't keep up. Letting people down really stresses me out and that really hurts my content and frame of mind–which isn't what I want a "hobby" to do. So I'm going to focus on my wants and work with people when the two align. Be sure to focus on your health and mental health this year too. Let's do it!
It's been a while since I recorded a podcast and much of that is to blame on the Monthly Mayhem event I was participating in. It took up most of my time and we weren't allowed to discuss details until it was over. So I didn't have other new stuff to talk about and I couldn't talk about the Monthly Mayhem...which left nothing for the podcast. Now that it's over, let's talk Monthly Mayhem and the newly created King of RC content on CCxRC.
Welcome to the RC-Crawler-specific edition of the podcast, where we only talk about things related to crawlers. It was bound to happen some time...that and Josh from Harley Designs made fun of me for how many times I say "Monster Trucks" in a day...so I had to try not to say it too much in this episode.
