20th Annual Hot Rod Hobbies Shootout Is Coming!

Updated flyer with 2wd Open Stadium Truck class added!

The annual Hot Rod Hobbies Off-Road Shootout is almost upon us! This awesome event is a yearly staple at Hot Rod's, where the best racers in Southern California (and from across the country, and sometimes even overseas) join us in the summer Saugus, CA heat to test their skills against some of the toughest competition anywhere. It also presents an excellent opportunity for Rookie drivers to pair with a professionally-sponsored driver, in the R/C Pro AM. Newcomers will get invaluable experience, knowledge, setup and driving tips, and test themselves against other Rookies and Pros. If you're still learning the ropes, this alone is worth the price of entry. Click the image above to download the official entry form!

Sponsors this year include Proline, Kyosho, Team Orion, Upgrade R/C, Absolute Hobbyz, Tekin, Protek R/C,, LiveTime, JL Engineering Racing Products, and the Jimmy Babcock Racing League.
