The 1st Annual Desert Classic was recently held over the weekend of March 11-12th, at the newly opened Hobby Action R/C Raceway in Chandler, Arizona. This new event had a lot of the big name drivers in attendance and looks to be taking over where the Cactus Classic left off. With the demise of SRS […]
Jonathan Mathews’ TF2 is deceptively subtle, but the closer you look the cooler this truck gets. To begin with, there’s the Tamiya Blackfoot body. Look closer and you’ll see that this is an extended cab Ford — something Tamiya never made. So Jonathan and his buddy Jim (who runs a body shop) spliced together two […]
Jason Hope sent us these pics of his new trail rig overlooking the ocean near his home in Pacifica, CA. Its an Axial Wraith with a custom polished aluminum frame and cage. Power comes via an HPI 15t motor run by a Castle Creations Sidewinder controller. It rolls on metal beadlock wheels with Pro-Line 2.3 […]
The Vaterra is nominally a desert truck, but Jason Hope’s Twin Hammers spends plenty of time getting muddy on mountain trails near his Pacifica, Callifornia home. The muck looks at home on the Pro-Line ’72 Chevy C10 body done in a rusty beater truck motif by Jason himself. He selected upsized Interco Super Swampers from […]
In a conclusion that couldn’t have been written any better, the Ryan show (Ryan Cavalieri and Ryan Maifield) came to a dramatic head in the final race of the event at the 2017 Reedy Race of Champions. With Cavalieri on the front row and Maifield on the second, the crowd was on their toes. Needing […]
The 2017 Reedy Race of Champions marks the first major race for newly signed Yokomo factory team driver Ryan Maifield. In his arsenal for 4WD buggy is the YZ-4, but as with many drivers, has some great modifications and prototype parts to give him the needed edge in high-level racing. Let’s take a closer look. […]
There’s always a lot to see at a big event like the Reedy Race of Champions. This year, the two spec tire providers JConcepts and Pro-Line also brought some new products to show off with obvious influences from their team drivers, including Ryan Maifield and his Yokomo 2WD and 4WD buggies. Check it out. JConcepts […]
The final round of 4WD came to a conclusion Saturday with three drivers in the Invitational Class all tied in points. Xray’s Ty Tessmann, TLR’s Dakotah Phend and Yokomo’s Ryan Maifield are all grid locked with nine points, with AE’s Ryan Cavalieri and Alex Kosciuszek within striking distance each having eleven points. But, 2WD buggy will most likely […]
Lots to see at one of the biggest racing events of the year. There’s still plenty of racing, but this is where the drivers and manufacturers break out all the newest and greatest along with phenomenal driving.
The first day is completed at the 2017 Reedy Off-Road Race of Champions and the top Invite drivers are showing their experience and speed. The Reedy Race has a well-deserved reputation for exciting racing for the viewer, and it seemed only fitting to witness the best race in the last heat in the final (fourth) […]
To help eliminate a tire advantage, the Reedy Race uses a very strict set of rules for the “control” tires in the 2WD and 4WD buggy classes. Included in the rules are specifics about how the tires can be treated. For 2WD, the approved tires are JConcepts Gold Space Bar fronts and JConcepts Gold Dirt Webs in the rear, both […]
Many of the Factory Team Drivers of Team Associated are debuting the new, highly anticipated B64D 4WD buggy at the 2017 Reedy Off-Road Race of Champions going on right now and we were fortunate enough to peak under newly signed Dustin Evan’s personal car. Sporting Reedy electronics, the buggy is already showing impressive speed and […]
