Customer Feedback

Dear RC Performance staff,

Here are the pictures we took at the track during our Nationwide/Allied corporate team building event.

Everyone had an absolute blast. Having the timing loop set up, with lap times being announced, was a huge bonus I was not expecting.

The track announcer did a great job directing the practice laps as well as the "mini-heats" that we ran.

I am already being asked when we will have the opportunity to do this again. In fact, Leslie, (one of our female reps) called today and expressed that she thought the event was a great idea, she had an excellent time, and is even considering having her own birthday gathering there (!). She was impressed with how fun RC driving is with your steering wheel set-up.

The event was a great way to get our Loss Control team together, have some fun, and boost teamwork and confidence. This activity will be talked about for some time. RC racing is something that many of us had not done before. Being able to drive hobby quality vehicles, on the indoor track, with the steering wheel set up, proved to make everyone comfortable and confident at driving in no time.

I would like to thank you again for the opportunity. We had a blast!
