Blog Intro: Mike Truhe

My name is Mike Truhe. I'm 25 years old and born and raised in Torrance Ca. I have been racing RC cars for 8 years. I flew RC airplanes and helicopters previous to racing cars. I have loved every minute of doing what I do. It has been a great opportunity to meet alot of very cool people and have made alot of very good friends through these last 8 years. I have always raced Team Losi vehicles since i started. My first car was a XX-CR buggy. Outside of RC i like to hang out with my friends and am very easygoing and will do just about anything with a smile on my face wether it be playing some golf or just hanging out. I am looking forward to many more years with Team Losi with much success!

Losi joins USAC for sprint car action

Southern California’s Perris Auto Speedway (PAS) is considered one of the premier dirt short tracks in the country and the home of the USAC/CRA 410 sprint cars. Thousands of die hard fans pack the seats on a semi-weekly basis to watch the fast paced action. These loyal and enthusiastic fans got a treat Saturday July 19th when Losi, with the help of Pacific Coast Hobbies, set up a demo track for their 1/18 scale Sliders and Late Models. PCH also set up a beautiful display in the LOSI and Nitrotane tents handling the customers that couldn’t wait to learn more or get their own RC racers. The Losi/PCH crew also handed out Losi catalogs and information identifying Losi dealers in the outlying areas. Needless to say, this event exposed not only the speed and durability of Losi RC cars but also how easy it is to set up your own “mini-speedway” at home. Since “The PAS” hosts regular dirt Late Model and off-road race truck events I think you may see more RC demos in the near future.

I just got back from The Farm 2 for my final test before the 1/8th IFMAR Worlds. The weather was very hot, but we lucked out again by not getting any rain. The track held up awesome and the racing was great. I'll be home for a little over a week and then I'm off to the Manufacturer's Cup. Talk to you soon!
