Kyosho & Tebo Dominate ’11 The Dirt Nitro Challenge

Feb 28, 2011 1 Comment by

For the first time in the “Dirt Nitro Challenge” history (12 years!), someone has TQ’d and won both Pro nitro 1/8-scale classes.

Kyosho’s Jared Tebo put on a clinic, dominating the event by TQ’ing and winning both the Pro Truggy (in a nailbiter of a finish against AE’s Ryan Maifield) and Pro Buggy nitro classes at The Nitro Pit in Whittman, Arizona.  And no, that’s not sweat on Tebo’s sweatshirt–it’s two trophy presentations’ worth of champion’s champagne!

Tebo took home the trophies piloting his Kyosho Inferno MP9 TKI2 buggy and Inferno ST-RR truggy, both equipped with Team Orion engines, AKA wheels/tires/inserts, KO Propo radio gear and Maxima nitro fuel.

Check out a future issue of Radio Control Car Action magazine for a report, and stay tuned here at for more photos and interview videos from the race.

About the author

Executive Editor I jumped into R/C back in 1987, when mechanical speed controllers and hard rubber tires were all the rage. Since then, I’ve experienced R/C in almost every state in the USA. I've built and raced every type of RC vehicle created, and traveled throughout the country (and world) to attend and cover more R/C events than I can remember. But what a fun ride it's been! I'm fortunate to live in Southern California, and I take advantage of my location by enjoying R/C outdoors year ‘round. Club racing is the future for R/C growth, and I’m always looking to bring new people into the hobby, whether it’s through backyard bashing or organized racing.
