No Predators for Associated! APRIL 2002

Team Associated recently announced their drivers would run Tenth Technology Predators in the 4WD class at the IFMAR off-road worlds, but has since scrapped plans to run the iconoclastic British machines (although Craig Drescher may be an exception). According to Associated, Tenth Tech simply could not provide the cars soon enough for the Team drivers to build and dial them in. So what will the A-Team’s 4WD pilots be running in Africa? Whatever they want! Billy Easton and Mark Pavidis will race TC3-derived buggies hand-built with German conversion parts, but don’t look for a production Associated 4-wheeler to come of it; the company strongly asserts there are no plans to build a 4WD buggy.

On-Road Upset!

Tamiya earned its first-ever World Championship title thanks to Thailand’s fast (and unpronounceable) Surikarn Chaidajsuriya, who drove his Reedy-powered TRF 414M II to third, second, and first-place finishes in the three A-Mains to win the title(which makes a staggering 24 IFMAR Worlds victories for Reedy power). Barry Baker, Billy Easton and Chris Tosolini were the Americans in the show, which saw Barry TQ with his TC3. He could have won it all, but Barry damaged his car in a crash during the final laps of the third Main.

In 1/12 scale, Masami Hirosaka proved he still has the World Champ mojo by TQing the class and winning the first two A-Mains. This earned Masami the right to sit out the third Main as the rest of the field battled for the lower podium steps.

Trinity Reflex touring car to debut at Reedy Race MAY 2001

We know for certain that Trinity is currently developing electric and nitro touring platforms to be dubbed the Reflex T and Reflex NT. Jim Dieter, Trinity’s motor man, accomplished designer, and skilled racer in his own right, is said to be the primary architect of the project (you may remember Trinity used the Reflex name for a Jim Dieter-designed dirt oval car back in the day). It’s rumored that ace driver Josh Cyrul will race a test mule at the upcoming Reedy Touring Car Race of Champions. When we get more information on the cars’ details, we’ll be sure to let you know, but in the meantime Trinity has confirmed that the nitro-powered Reflex will be the first to hit the shelves.
