RC Maker announces its own 1:10 Electric Touring Car

RC Maker, the brand of one of Australia’s leading international touring car racers Ryan Maker, has just official broke the news that it will be producing its own complete 1:10 Electric Touring Car kit.  Known worldwide for its carbon fibre and 3D printed option parts for various car brands, the company will now become a bonafide chassis manufacturer with the release of the SP1 Touring Car and SP1-F FWD kits.  The car is due for official release in the middle of the year.  A multiple Australian National Champion, Maker will debut the car at one of the toughest and most important races after the World Championships, when he races at the legendary TITC in Bangkok next week (Feb 29-Mar 3rd).  As part of the build up to our coverage of the TITC, which is presented by Hobbywing, we have an feature coming with Ryan about the race and the journey to becoming racing’s newest touring car manufacturer.  On his own personal Facebook page Maker also posted about the announcement.

‘Today I realise the coming to fruition of a lifelong dream!  Thanks to the incredible support we’ve had for RC MAKER over the past 6 years, we are in a position to undertake what I only ever considered a “pipe dream”.

As you can imagine, I’m beyond excited for the new venture.  There’s nothing more exciting for me than being at the forefront of developing a race car with unlimited potential!  Given our in house resources, we have a massive advantage during this R&D phase to rapid prototype and create many different variations of parts to test, which has already been very successful.

Of course in typical RC MAKER fashion, you can expect something a bit outside of the box, pushing the limits, the only way we know. Over the next couple of months we will continue to make refinements as we head into production, with eventual release planned around the middle of 2024.

I want to thank everyone who has supported RC MAKER in any way, and allowed us to pursue this dream.  I can’t wait to get our cars out there for everyone to enjoy, and give the great support and development we are known for!

Naturally, I will be driving and developing our cars, and thus won’t be driving for Awesomatix anymore.  I want to thank Oleg for his incredible engineering inspiration over the years, and Max Mächler – RC Motorsport for all of his support.  I will always be a massive fan of the brand!

I’ve created a new page where I will be sharing the racing and development journey of the SP1 and SP1-F, where I will share lots of valuable information and updates, so if you want to stay up to date, go and give it a like! —> Ryan Maker – RC MAKER
