Written by Harley. Yesterday marked the first Goat Hill Scale challenge. This event really showcased what the KCRC (Kansas City Rock Crawlers) club can do. The Kansas City area is really stacked with some amazing talent, I’d put it against any club in the nation for the ability to put out some of the coolest trucks, media and products in RC crawling. I’m proud to be part of this club.
Tom (Racer4life) has been with RC4WD for years, I met him at Scale Nationals this year and knew it was time to learn a little bit more about him and RC4WD. If you haven’t heard of RC4WD before you are missing out. They make the coolest scale products around and some pretty good comp parts as well.

2008, Patrick I tried to make it to Scale Nationals, we ended up breaking down outside of Rawlins, Wyoming and sitting on the roadside for 8 hours until a friend came and picked us up. I tried to get my Jeep fixed in time to make it, but I just couldn’t get it done on time. Fast forward to 2011, planning for the trip to Montana began earlier in the year. We planned to get Patrick (666), Danielle (Patrick’s girlfriend) Tim (tmyjeeper) and myself to split gas and some of the costs, as time went on we realized 4 people plus all our stuff wouldn’t fit into my little Subaru. Patrick and Danielle decided that renting a car and following Tim and I would work out best for everyone.
