Geoffrey Chan was one one of the first people to join and help me with the QuadifyRC Facebook group and has consistently offered patient and well thought out advice to the group, be it newcomer or experienced user. He's already written a number of articles for this site, including his most recent comparison between the WL Toys and LC Racing cars in extensive detail. For these reasons I'm proud to feature his car that I am most jealous of - a completely rebuilt LC Racing EMB-SC (Short Course Truck). The only reason one of his cars hasn't been featured earlier is because he helps organise all of the COTMs and I had to twist his arm to show off one of his!
This LC Racing short course truck started life a white, pink and purple EMB Truggy. It has gone through several iterative changes over the past two years and is now fully upgraded in its final form as a converted EMB-SC. Custom applied vinyl with graphics (see here how to) inspired from the much larger 1/7 scale Arrma Mojave, this mini SCT isn't a slouch. It's at home on loose terrain with its ultra grippy tires and absolutely rips on 2S and is uncontrollable on 3S. My favorite RC in my fleet at the moment.
It's barely controllable on 3s

Favourite place to race/brash/drive?
Local park down the street, backyard track in the winter, on the streets or empty parking lots for some friendly street racing
Preferred places/websites to source parts?
Banggood, Aliexpress, shop.lcracing.net
Favourite mod/upgrade on the car?
The EMB-SC body conversion has really changed the driving dynamics of the car and given it a completely different personality. Digging the scale looks and how it shifts with the suspension movements. The tires have also made the car a lot of fun in low grip surfaces.
Future plans for the car?
May try a street setup on the car with a lowered suspension and more tarmac friendly tires
