It’s Queensland Champs week for the EP on-road community, with racers from all over the state slowly making their way toward the southern Queensland town of Hervey Bay for a weekend of racing and a little holiday activity.
We’re heading that way as well, and that means limited service from Action R/C this week (unless you’re at Hervey Bay). By all means, drop us a line if you need something, but we won’t be able to resume full operations until Tuesday 30th.
We’ve been anticipating this race for a long time – it’ll be the first time the Fraser Coast club (based in Hervey Bay) have hosted such an event, and many of us are excited to go race with the crew. Check out our full race preview.
We’ll post daily updates during the event, or keen an eye on Team Argo over at facebook for their usual blend of information and a light-hearted take on events.
Very limited supply – tyre tweak

Ben Myer you legend, first night out in his new Schumacher KF and Ben wins 2wd at the GCRC.
BEN commented on the extreme quality of the Schumacher kit and the steering, wow the steering, couldn’t get the smile off his face.
Go the schumacher drivers, quite a good team at GCRC now. Andrew Lyons also had his first race meet in the Aero after a long layoff from RC, welcome back Andrew.
Woohoo offroad buggy round 1 of a new series starts at GCRC.
I’ll be there to race 4wd stock, or 2wd stock, or maybe both.
Queensland Onroad Titles – Hervey Bay.
The 1st of September has come and gone and those that took me up on the offer of $40 sets of premounted 36′s before that date are well and truly catered for, I have a few left at that price if you haven’t ordered yet.
My very last order for tyres will be going in on 12th – after that it will be too late for the event.
If you want some ordered on 12th then get to me before 5pm that day, normal price of $45 per set will apply to that order.
See you in The Bay
When running mod or even 13.5 and using a light weight bodyshell, these can deform around the bonnet, windscreen area at high speed and prevent the body giving you the action you are looking for.
Center body post kit for the EVO, in stock at ActionRC just $23.
Wednesday night mid week racing – bring on the F1′s. gates open around 5.
Saturday night club racing gates open around 3
After a fun night of racing at Bayside, it’s time for a little update on progress with the new Schumacher Mi5evo.
First, let me send you over to Ed Clark’s blog, where he continues to document the development of his Mi5evo. Go here.
Below are a few thoughts after our first few weeks with the car. Overwhelmingly it’s been positive, but there are always things to learn and the Mi5evo is a totally different car (in terms of setup) than the Mi5 itself. Here’s what we’re thinking so far.
After 2 days go following Matthew Guyatt around Brookwater Golf Course as he plays in the Qld Open, it’s time for some light relief – so it’s off to GCRC to cut some laps on the new layout.
I’ll be there from 4.30 till 6.30 ish today, see you there
After several weeks exploring the back blocks of Queensland, David has returned to the helm of Action RC.
For prices, orders or a chat, get him on 0408982156 or by email.
David will be at Bayside Saturday.
Only two weeks left to the deadline for ordering and paying for The tyres for the Qld Champs for those buying from us if you want the discount price of $40 set. After 1st Sept the price will be $45. Much after that we won’t be able to guarantee delivery.
Get your order in soon, rules of the event stipulate a self supplied control tyre Sorex 36, our are preglued and ready to run, max 3 sets allowed for racing and you might want some for practice.
Dont leave it too late. I should be at Bayside on 30th if you want to order then.
