JQRacing – THE Story Part 3 – Three years of R&D

See: JQRacing

JQRacing have released the third part of the original story of the Finnish brand. Joseph Quagraine writes about the “developing and improving ideas”, usually the fun part of making your own car. JQ stated:

I started racing in 2000, and started studying Mechanical Engineering in 2003. In 2005-2006 I got interested in designing my own parts, just for fun. I helped HoBao develop their Hyper 8, and I started thinking that maybe this is something I could do in the future. Then one day my friend showed up at a race with his own batterybox. He had made it at work, turns out he worked at a prototyping company. I asked if he could make some parts for me, if I designed them, and he said yes. That’s how it started. I didn’t like the radiotray on my car, so I made a smaller box for the battery, and a separate receiverbox that fit on top of the laydown steering servo in my new Hyper 8. Throughout the year I made some other parts, including shocktowers, and some lightened parts. Then I hit the wall, because I had figured out ways to make the car better, but couldn’t really modify the car enough to get the best result. So I started designing a car, just for the hell of it. Then my interest faded because I didn’t think it would ever be made, and it was taking a lot of time and effort. Then spyshots of the Losi 8ight were released…

JQRacing – THE Story Part 2 – THE real hard part

See: JQRacing

JQRacing have released the second part of the original story of the Finnish brand. Joseph Quagraine writes about the “hard part” of taking the car from design to production. Going from no real knowledge to getting a car on the market! JQ stated:

A couple of weeks had passed since I had THE Idea, to produce my car design, I now had a finished design, I had found the needed manufacturers, I knew how much money I would need, and I knew many places where I could see about getting it. What next? I had zero experience in any of this. Better find some info I thought, so I did a search for ‘what is strategy development‘ and it presented me with a wealth of information. After reading some books, and some stuff on the internet, I started having an idea of what I was supposed to do, so I wrote down all the things I could think of that had anything to do with making this business plan. This included my actual business idea, what I was going to do, how I was going to do it, why it would be a success, and when this would happen. It also included some background info of RC Car Racing, I analysed my competitors, I studied prices, I set my price level, planned production and logistics, sales strategy, marketing strategy and ideas, intellectual property rights, future products, estimated the sales numbers, set goals, thought about strengths and weaknesses, analysed the risks involved, and figured out the timetable.

Joseph Quagraine is back on YouTube! If you are a JQ freak, please follow JQRacingTV channel… if not, avoid Youtube for the next month! 😉

If you are lucky enough to have missed all of JQ’s Facebook lives over the past three years, we would like to congratulate you. You missed out on a lot of banter, pointless rage, the occasional funny joke, the birth of Captain Clubrace, the discovery of Renaud Savoya’s love for balls, the explanation for Ongaro’s superior pace, tons of setup advice including “camber” probably on 3 separate occasions, analysis of races, track cutting incidents, and answers to viewer’s questions. We would like to inform you that you must now also avoid youtube at all costs. All of JQ’s FB lives are being uploaded to the JQRacing YT channel, and will eventually include time stamps in the descriptions that link you to the topics you want to see in each video. – Joseph Quagraine

It is still unknown where JQ will continue his live videos, as he is negotiating a 9 figure exclusive deal with a platform just like Joe Rogan.
