Located in San Manuel, Arizona Over the Top RC is this weeks Featured Track. In addition to being a track Over the Top RC is also a club that is making a difference in their community. The Track will easily accommodate 1/10 and 1/8 scale Off-Road vehicles and the track is free to use for Community School kids and Club Members. Last fall, with the help of some dedicated volunteers, the track received a brand new layout.
Over the Top RC have a wonderful program called “Cars for kids”. This where they take donated RC cars, parts, and electronics, break them down into kits and redistribute them to kids interested in learning the RC Hobby. They also provide guidance through workshops. The cars are almost completely taken apart and placed into parts bags according to factory manuals. Part of their mission is to help kids understand how to put their cars together and to build pride in something they built themselves.
How Cars for Kids Works:
“These FREE kits once complete will be awarded to a child in the community. The selection process is simple.
• Parents must agree to simple terms
• Child must agree to perform x amount of hrs. of community service
• Child will build the kit with guidance of one of the club sponsor
• Car will be left in the hands of the track sponsor until agreed community service is complete.
• Once the Child receives his/her car they are now considered a sponsor for the next recipient of a kit. (An adult sponsor will also help)”
Giving back to children in the community is always a great idea and this a terrific program. We wish Over the top RC all the best.
