Team Associateds Ryan Maifield took home the Factory Modified win with his T4 with a pair of second-place finishes and one win in the triple A-Mains. Ryan Cavalieri nabbed second, and Jared Tebo took third, all wheeling Factory Team T4s. Tebo won the Factory Gas Truck class to no ones surprise, but he did have to work a little harder than normal to pass teammates Ryan Cavalieri and Maifield for the win. Cavalieri TQd gas truck, but unfortunately was out of the race with mechanical trouble for the final 20 minutes of the 45-minute A-Main. Maifield took second and Team Losi/Trinitys Adam Drake rolled across the line in third.
In anticipation of the Chicago hobby show, Associated has revealed more photos of it's "Bigger, Faster, Tougher" monster truck concept. The final details haven't been worked out yet...but the A-Team promises the BFT will be powered by a rear-exhaust .21 engine and will include an aluminum "backbone" chassis, 2-speed tranny, extra-long arms with adjustable pivot-ball suspension suspended by eight oil-filled shocks, and huge monster-style tires and wheels. A factory-painted body will also be included, but no word on the final paint scheme (the flag look would be cool though). Check out www.rc10.com for more info.
