Earlier this year, we started THE100 Program. THE100 is one of the most important pieces of our plan to create the best possible products, as well as the very best environment for you to enjoy this great hobby in. We got a lot of applications, but in the end ended up with only 15 people worldwide, in THE100, out of the possible one hundred. This was because we truly want to find our most trusted supporters, and also, because we knew that this year we would not have the resources to focus on starting the program with more members. And quite frankly, we barely managed at all!
However, now the time has come. Over the next few months, the biggest event will take place in JQ Product’s history, since the release of our first car, and now all of you have a second chance to join THE100! We will be accepting THE100 applications at the100(at)jq-products.com until the 31st of September. Please check the original release for more details here.
Sharing Our Passion:
What exactly are we doing? That’s a good question. There are many different ways to look at this program, and the reasons for doing it. I want to try to explain the reasons we decided to do this. When trying to come up with a descriptive slogan for THE100, after some time breaking down the program to its core, figuring out what we are actually doing, it just became obvious: ”Sharing Our Passion”. My passion is racing. Not RC Cars, but racing. I love trying to better myself and my vehicles so ultimately one day I can win a championship. This is what drives me. When I am too old and slow to ever have a chance to win myself, I will try to make sure someone else wins with my car. This is my passion. I know that there are other people out there with similar passions. Everyone is not going to start their own RC Car company, design their own race car, and try to win with it, so this is a good way, to find those people, and share our passion.
THE100 is a way for you, to get involved in race car development, and the hard work of trying to become the best. Whatever your passion is, we hope that you will be able to apply it through THE100, innovation, graphic design, producing videos, photography, racing at the highest level, whatever you want to do, it has a place in THE100. One day we hope to have the best company, with the best products and team of people working on them. Some of you may end up actually working for us, some of you may become team drivers, but the reason for us doing this, should not be the expectation of receiving something as a reward. The reason is simply that we love what we do.
