My dad and I have a collection of RC vehicles. We have electric cars and gas cars.

My first was a Traxxas gas-powered truck. Then I got a Kraken RC Buggy and an Arrma Raider electric car, and also a Team Associated Buggy.

My dad and I try to run our cars every weekend in the field. We take along a box with extra parts because something always breaks. I like that my dad and I do this because it’s just time we spend together and we have fun.

We get our RC cars at Hero Hobbies (hobbyheroes.com) at 3587 E. Tremont Ave., the Bronx.
