Default Learn about RC Cars and Racing from Pato Concha - Chennai, 7 & 8 Nov

Patricio "Pato" Concha is a RC Car racer from Chile. He is sponsored by several RC companies including CEN Racing USA, GO Engines, VP PRO Racing, Avid RC, Ultimate Racing, ARC Hobbies Chile etc.

Pato races both offroad and onroad RC Cars.

He recently won in the following events:

CACH OFFROAD SERIES - CHILE 2009

1/8 Nitro Buggy - 1st - CEN Matrix
1/8 Nitro Truggy - 2nd - CEN Arena

Pato was so kind to accept my invitation to Chennai and help us. We look forward to cover the following with him:

1. Basic nitro engine tuning / trouble-shooting etc

2. Driving skills, jumps, handling the car in a track

3. Some very basic race setup and their effects on the car

4. And of course..... a super demo of his driving skills

Start Time: Saturday, November 7, 2009 at 12:30pm
End Time: Sunday, November 8, 2009 at 2:00pm
Location: Chennai - Mayajaal RC track & Raceway 112

Hope all goes well and the rains don't wash away our passion.

Not posting this in RC cars thread because this is an event and for better visibility.

Purely open. Not sure how much we can do because of the monsoons. Pato is my guest for 2 days, will try to cover as much as possible even if its theory only.
