Matt Higgins, Owner/President

Matt has over 30 years of experience in RC and has worked professionally in media for over two decades. Matt enjoys everything from racing to rock crawling to bashing, and he believes RC should be all about having fun. Matt is as at home covering a world championship in an exotic country as he is showing a new hobbyist how to set gear mesh. His desire to share the hobby with as many people as possible inspired him to create RC Truck Stop and Matt lives with his wife and two children in North Carolina.


Christopher Oswald, Senior Editor

Christopher, a professional automotive technician, has been a RC enthusiast for over 20 years and resides in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. In addition to racing, scale crawling and high-speed parking lot bashing are some of his favorite ways to enjoy RC. When he isn’t racing or bashing, Christopher contributes articles on a variety of topics to magazines and online forums around the web. Christopher has his own personal project showcase website “R/C Modz Full Throttle” where you can find some of his custom rigs.


Jack Higgins


Jack is the son of RC Truck Stop founder, Matt Higgins, and is often the unseen driver in many of our test videos. Jack got an early start in RC, and has competed in scale rock crawling competitions and has dabbled in racing over the last few years. While living in Connecticut, he raced indoors on carpet, but since moving to North Carolina has transitioned to outdoor off-road and dirt oval.


David Maffucci

David has been racing RC trucks since the Tamiya Nissan King Cab came out in 1989. A true enthusiast, he is involved in several aspects of this great hobby. David has coordinated a number of points series race events at local tracks, is a contributing writer for magazines and online hobby websites, club races as often as possible and still knows how to have fun with RC and good friends. David owns and operates Visionary Computer.


Steve Semeraro (1972-2012)

Steve has been in the hobby for the good part of 25 years. He has been a racer the entire time and a part of the RC community. His other RC credits have included being hobby shop manager for several years, as well as a factory team driver for Schumacher and Viper RC Solutions. Steve believes in growing the hobby for future RC hobbyists to come. In addition to his RC experience, Steve has 15 years of CNC programming and setup to his credit.
It is always sad when someone passes before
 their time, and it is, of course, that much more bitter when the death is unexpected. Steve was a popular figure in the New England RC racing scene and well known for his good nature and quick sense of humor as well as his constant desire to help others. We thank Steve for his work on RC Truck Stop. He will be sincerely missed.–Matt
