YouTuber alcof16 has posted this cool onboard action video:
Historic radiocontrolled car with a camera onboard. This car is 40 years old and has been restored by me. Powered by a .49 Cox engine. Jerobee was the first car in 1:12 scale rc powered by an internal combustion engine.
Tamy Stadel (JoMac Sec/Treasurer) and Don McKay (JoMac Owner and President) got married on Oct 28 2005 – 25 years after meeting at JoMac/Jerobee.
Congratulations you crazy kids!
Mark just contacted Jerobee.com looking for parts for his Bandero. If you’ve got some spares you’re willing to part with, contact us and we’ll forward the info to him.

Please send contact us. We will keep the information private if you like, and send the contact info for interested parties to you. Or, we can publish the info here on Jerobee.com so that people can get in touch directly.
Just received word from Don McKay about a former member of Team JoMac / Jerobee:
Ralph Burch Jr. can add another few notches to his RC racing resume with his recent success at the ’04 1/8 Scale Gas US Nationals. According to his father Ralph Burch Senior, not only was Jr. quick enough to be Top Qualifier (TQ), he also won the event!
Congratulations to Ralph Burch Jr. on a job well done!
On a side note, Ralph Burch Jr. was voted the “Greatest RC Driver of All Time” by readers of RC Car Action magazine back in ’01. Certainly not the most up-to-date piece of information, but pretty impressive none the less. Click the ‘read more’ link for a complete list of the finalists and a link to the info at RC Car Action.
Jerobee.com just received an e-mail from Don McKay about the recent Team JoMac reunion in Dallas, TX. Here’s what he had to say:
Thanks everyone for making the reunion and Tamy’s and my weekend wonderful. It was so good to see you all again. I missed you all more than I knew. There were times as I would see another one of you, for the first time, that I would almost cry.
We have been up to our eye balls at work making up for the week we were gone. My CD RW is out on my computer so I have not been able to cut the CD disk with pictures yet but will. I have over 100 really good photos to share with you.
All of you are invited any time to Redmond to visit. You get here and we’ll provide the food and logging. We want to get together again and not wait another 20 years.
I got to run now more later.
NOTE: This reunion took place in 2004
I just received an e-mail from Don McKay about a “Team JoMac” reunion!
