MotoIQ Radio: Tim Smith of Tim Smith Racing and Land Speed Record R/C

I had another interesting conversation while I was at Glen Helen Raceway this weekend. While watching some 1/10th scale Rock Racing on their awesome looking and narly track, I met Tim Smith. Tim Smith is best known in the RC world for his record setting and Guinness records in RC Land Speed and Drag Racing. He's done more than that so we'll talk to him about LSR, ovals, rock crawling, and what he's doing with a Vaterra Twin Hammers.

Also, in case you don't know, this is a Vaterra Twin Hammers. It's a 1/10th scale rock crawler that has a solid rear with a four link and independent front suspension. That's a set up much like the famous Shannon Campbell runs in the Kind of the Hammers.
