The Ultimate RC Garage - What is it?
My name is RCRobbie (A.K.A. ROTO), and I’d personally like to thank you for stopping by! The goal of my Garage is to inspire, to motivate, and challenge you to reach for something beyond what you think you’re capable of. I managed to build the cars, write the text, take the pictures, build the server and the site in 7 months during “created hobby time.” 19 cars in total included in the launch of the site, and all associated social posts as well.

Oh, and without breaking the bank or needing dual degrees in science and mathematics. I CHALLENGE YOU – what can you do in spare time for a little RC Therapy? (FINAL RESULT 1-YEAR UPDATE – 6/18/2019 @ 7:04pm – 34 Cars Completed, 174 Paint Cans Used in ~618 Work Hours spread over 365 Days!) (UPDATE – 6/27/2020 @ 1:04pm – 39 Cars & 1 Jet Completed, 201 Paint Cans Used in ~762 Work Hours since I began!) (UPDATE – 3/25/2021 @ 4:49am – 41 Cars & 4 Planes Completed, 228 Paint Cans Used in ~916 Work Hours since I began!)
