There are a lot of companies in and out of the industry with blogs these days. There are several in the R/C industry that we follow pretty close for not only new products, news, and info but also because they have some really good information and discussion.
Just one of those blogs is the TLR Racing Blog. While this IS the TLR blog, it has some great material for TLR and non-TLR racers and owners to enjoy!
