About


Hi there and thank you for checking out what's gonna make washing and saucing ALL of your 1/8 and 1/10 RC race tires a breeze in 2 BIG ways: 

1. SAVES TIME...Keep your wheel nuts on!

2. HANDS FREE...Keep potentially harmful tire sauces away from our hands. 

Pitd RC is here to provide innovative and quality RC racing products to all racers. Born from over a year working through design ideas and over 40 prototypes to bring a game changing way to wash and sauce our race tires in a way that is efficient and safe for the recommended age limits tire sauce companies market their products to. We know that these potentially harmful chemicals don't belong on our hands but up till now that has meant we don't always think that what we do has a lasting affect on our health and the health of our younger drivers watching and learning from our seasoned racers. 

At the very least you're guaranteed to get marshalled quicker!

We are working with manufacturers to produce high quality parts at a high standard that's quality controlled by Pitd RC. Granted we are a new company we are passionate about the products we make and live by the promise to our customers we make great products to form great experiences.

Our manufacturing is taking place overseas for cost savings we can pass to our customers.  We have coordinated the manufacturing and shipping time frame needed to get the products back to Pitd RC for final inspection and packaging. From our headquarters in Long Beach, California we will ship to the customers that backed us on Kickstarter first. The time line set out is achievable with the expectation that you will receive your Saucy Washers no later than February 2020.

How is the Saucy Washer any different from the products already on the market.  

Ask yourself: 

1. How much is your time worth? When club racing or at a big event and you're racing multiple classes it's time consuming taking 10 or more minutes and don't lose a nut in the process.  It happens! The Saucy Washer gets it done in under 2 minutes.  What about the other race prep that needs to happen between races? One less thing to do is a guud thing. Let us help you get those W's!

2. What's the right tool for the job?  Why not use the only tool designed for saucing and washing your race tires.  Like every guud tool your Saucy Washer will come in a durable carrying case that will hold your other tire prep tools with special cutouts designed to fit most popular items like sanding sticks or paddle and a tire break in tool. 

Single Saucy Washer kit includes microfiber towel; sauce and scrub attachments with anodized hardware (sanding paddle/stick and tire break in tool sold separately).
Double Saucy Washer kit includes microfiber towel; sauce and scrub attachments with anodized hardware (sanding paddle/stick and tire break in tool sold separately).

**The production carrying case will hold up to 2 Saucy Washers so you can have one dedicated for washing and one for saucing to make your life even easier.**

3. How do I keep the sauce on the tires and not on my hands?  With a handle that attaches to the sauce pad you never have to touch who knows what's-in-that-tire-sauce again.

Use the handle, Luke. Don't need to get those potentially harmful tire sauce formulas on your skin.
Spray the pad, not your hands.

**Interchanging between washing and saucing is easy to switch back and forth with anodized aluminum hardware that uses common m3 screw and custom knurled thumb nut.** 

Thank you for your time and support. We are excited about the traction we are gaining and we look forward to hearing how your Saucy Washer works out for you.  See you on the track.

Risks and challenges

This is a project that we believe in full heartedly and we want to bring to the RC racing community. We are a new company with many exciting ideas waiting to build off our success of the Saucy Washer. This campaign like all campaigns that are on Kickstarter depend on the goal being met in order for this project to reach your RC tool arsenal. We are confident that we can reach this goal and have priced the Saucy Washer so more people can get one come race day!
As for the risks and challenges often faced on the manufacturing side. We are working closely with manufactures that have invested time and energy supplying samples to this point. The Saucy Washer will be injection molded and with tooling costs rising we have secured pricing and timelines guaranteed by the manufactures. As we know we live in a global market with variables that are hard to predict. We've done our best to assure that the manufacturers will deliver on or before the outlined dates below. However, that being written, grandma Ginny always reminded me that you can't count your apples before you pick'em. We know that delays are a very real possibility though we will work to get your Saucy Washer to each backer as soon as possible.
The plan:

-Start pre sale orders now.

-Fund successfully by end of Kickstarter campaign.

-Place orders with manufactures beginning of November.
(production 2-4 weeks) mid November-beginning of December.

-Manufacturers ship to Pitd RC (up to 3 weeks) End of December-early January.

-Assemble and ship out to our AWESOME Kickstarter customers beginning of January to possibly February.

-Start on next product that will make you smile March 2020.
