I must say "I have the best job in the world". Thats being a father to 4 kids. Of those 4, 3 are boys. John 19 is on his on now. Josh 12 and Justin 6 that enjoy racing. Josh and myself make up Team Hawthorne #5 & #6. Justin will come aboard in the next few years. He is doing very well in the 1/10 scale Legend class and I will soon move him into 1/4 scale. (But, not till I know he is ready). Oh yeah and Stephanie 17, she keeps her brothers in line.
Josh has had a radio in his hand since he was 4, so he is pretty good. He loves to race and thats Great. I don't push the boys so when they are racing its because they want to be. If you happen to run 1/4 scale and get the chance to run with us. Don't worry about the little guy (Josh). He don't mind rubbing fenders. We only have one rule on our team and that is we race with respect. We run clean and we pass clean or we wait. Racing is fun when it is done with respect.

Here are a few pictures of The Quarter Scale Race Team. The cars are 48" long over 20" wide and 30 lbs.
This is one of the cars New. You paint the body add a 2 ch radio (I use a PCM) with (3) 1/4 scale servos (1 on the throttle and brake and 2 for the steering) and then fill the tank with c-16 racing fuel and your ready to go racing!
