Hi, this is your friend Michael Sayers. I’m an automobile engineer, but I have become an expert on RC cars. Seems funny to you! After graduating in automobile engineering, I worked for a renowned car manufacturing company for six months only. A few months later, I joined a popular RC vehicle manufacturing company as a quality in charge. However, I’ve created this site Altimarc, to share my decade of experience with people looking for an RC vehicle who don’t have adequate knowledge about that.
