Who Am I?

Who Am I? Articles

I run this website since October 2006 but I never took the time to introduce myself. So here I am…

Name: Sylvain Lafrance

Location: I’m from Province of Québec, Canada (Google Map). My mother tongue is French, that’s why my English is far from being perfect. I work hard to make it better. I already know the most important words for R/C racing… At the sound of the tone…. Down and quiet…. No harm, no foul! LOL

DOB: Somewhere in 1971… Yes already 40+!

Current vehicles: I mostly own Team Associated vehicles. RC8.2 FT nitro and electric, RC10GT2 FT, B4.1. I also own Axial Dingo and Honcho scale trucks for the relax side of R/C. I’m pretty much loyal to the brands I’ve always owned.

Preferred race class: I prefer 2wd 1/10 vehicles no matter the class because they require precision. I like 1/8 scale nitro buggy class because this is THE class.

Classes I currently race: I now try to focus on 1/8 buggy nitro or electric. I’ve raced less frequently in the last years. I just spend a little more time with the family .

Products you can find under my cars’ hoods: Team Associated, Pro-Line Racing, Futaba, Reedy, LRP.

My experience: Started in 1992 with a RC10T in my backyard. Took a break between 1993 and 1997. Bought a RC10GT in 1998 to bash around the house. Few years later, I bought a Savage and switched to a Monster GT when I  started to race in 2005.

Highlights: 2006, 4 Aces championship (Québec city) winner in Monster Truck and 2wd buggy classes. 2008 finished 4th in truggy expert at the RC Pro Series Québec Division. I didn’t participate to many races since. Just few ones here and there.

What I like in racing: Great way to make good friends, I like the ambiance.

What I hate in racing: Racers that drive like they were in a demolition derby. People with big ego. Of course, gluing tires and painting bodies.

What I learn from racing: Preparation is the key for success

What I should practice to be a better racer: I suffer from the on/off throttle syndrome

My R/C dream: Race at a major event in USA

Thanks for sharing...

Hello, my name is Sylvain Lafrance and I am the man behind MyRCBox.com. I have bought my first hobby grade RC in the early 90s. With years, what that started as a simple hobby, quickly became a strong passion. I am so much passionate about R/C that I have created MyRCBox.com in 2006 to share my experiences with R/C products that I use for racing and bashing. Follow me !
