We had the chance to interview Carson Stout of RC Posts Daily, who already at 15 is making a name for himself in the RC community (when I was 15 I was playing video games and eating Ramen, but you have to start somewhere). Need your daily dose of RC? Check out awesome photos from his Instagram.
Age: 15 years old
Location: Kokomo Indiana
When did you get into RC?
I got into RC when I was about 11 years old starting with my Losi 1/16 sprint car!
What type of electronics/equipment do you use on your cars?
I’m a cheap kind of guy so I use Velineon.
Why did you choose those particular cars?
When I first got into RC I was more of a Losi guy because that’s really all I knew about until I discovered Traxxas! Traxxas holds up very well and it’s my favorite brand and you can customize the crap out of your cars!
What made you decide to do RC Posts Daily?
I decided to do RC Posts Daily because I wanted to get my RC adventures out there and show everyone how cool RC is!
Who are you’re RC role models?
What is your all-time favorite track/bash-spot and why?
Wow that’s a tough one! I’d say my favorite place to bash is at my friend Jaylen streets house! He has a few back yard tracks that me and my buddies race on and it’s ALOT of fun!!
Tell me about the best race/bash you ever had?
Well like I said I don’t do to much big racing, but I race with my friends and the best race I’ve had is when me and my buddy were battling it out all night long and we were always trying to get the best of each other but no one would give and when the a-main came along we both started side by side on the front row and battled the whole race and then the white flag came out and out of the final turn we both wrecked each other and we both lost!
Tell me about the worst race/bash you ever had?
The worst bash I’ve ever had is when I went out to Florida and took all my RC cars and I couldn’t wait to drive and I took them out on the beach and I had my sand paws on my stampede and I was ripping up the sand and my rear differential went out and I had forgot some of my wrenches at home so I couldn’t fix it!
What do you do when your not running RCs?
Duh I think more about RC, I work on my RC, I think about where I’m gonna bash next!
If you had one piece of advice that you could give to anyone that wanted to get involved in RCs – what would it be?
A piece of advice I’d give to some one that wanted to get involved in RCs I would tell them, don’t get frustrated when something goes wrong because that can make your whole RC experience bad.
