    RC Rank?

    I noticed that everyone has some sort of RC rank, under there username.
    What are the rank levels and how are they achieved?
    At the moment I'm "RC Racer".
    But, then i see others that have "RC Qualifier" and have more post then me.

    The rankings are based solely on post count. I cant remember the post counts that earn you the next rank and I lost the list I had saved when my old computer died. I can tell you the top ranking is "Turnbuckle Jr" and you need 3000 posts to reach the top level. Posts mad in The Alley do not count toward your post count.

    So Marshal, Traxxas Marshal and Traxxas Employee are the people that run this site?

    RC Rank?

    Marshal is a moderator basically. And they organize the moderators (marshals) per section of the forum. There are moderators for slash, stampede, etc areas.
    If a RC never breaks, your doing it wrong

    Employees run the forum. Marshals are just regular members with to-do lists (or at least that's how I view them) and are volunteers. Moderators include both the paid Traxxas employees and the marshals.

    Here are the rank / ranking (helpful) post number levels or requirements:

    RC Poster : 1-19 posts
    RC Enthusiast : 20+ posts
    RC Competitor : 50+ posts
    RC Racer : 100+ posts
    RC Qualifier : 250+ posts
    RC Champion : 1000+ posts
    RC Turnbuckle Jr : 3000+ posts

    Some believe there should be a category for 10,000+ posts, but I'm not sure that level of dedication says more positive or negative about the poster.
    Alt-248 on the number pad =

    Thanks!
    That's exactly what i was looking for.
    I thought an RC Racer would be after RC Qualifier.
    Don't you have to Qualify before you can race?

    Don't rock the boat, lol.

    Anybody can be a racer. Not everybody can be a qualifier for the A-main.

    Honestly, with Traxxas' latest releases, anything is possible.
