Results! ROAR Fuel Off-Road Nats

The ROAR Fuel Off-Road Nationals just wrapped at Gears R/C in Harlingen, Texas. This was the first time monster trucks were officially recognized as a class. Jay Halsey took top honors in the monster truck class driving a prototype Jammin' Truggy powered by a big block.
Jason Ashton pulled out to an early lead driving a Mugen MSR X5-T, but suffered mechanical troubles that would take him out of contention.
Jared Tebo took the top spot in the 1/10 stadium truck class driving a Team Associated RC10GT. Word has it that Tebo's truck was fitted with custom quick-change rear hubs, which allowed a rear tire change half way through the race. Tebo reportedly had a large lead, lost a critical screw in the suspension, was brought into the pits to have a new screw installed, and still made it back on the track in first place.
Team Kyosho's Mark Pavidis and Trinity/Kyosho driver Ryan Cavalieri battled for almost the entire 1/8 buggy A-main. With just two laps to go, Cavalieri jumped over the top of Pavidis for the lead and the eventual win.

Tebo and Bradley get it done at The Dirt

Tebo and Bradley get it done at The Dirt

Team Associated/Kyosho/O’Donnell ace Jared “The Kid” Tebo (who just turned 18 this past weekend) won both the 1/10-scale and 1/8-scale pro classes at The Dirt Nitro Challenge.
In the Unlimited Monster Truck class, Mugen’s Chad Bradley TQ’d and won with the new Mugen MBX5-T truggy, which will be offered as a conversion kit for the MBX-5 buggy.
Tebo was top qualifier in 1/10-scale and managed to break away from an early battle with Team Trinity/Losi’s Adam Drake. In 1/8-scale, Jared put in a valiant effort late in the race to pass Kyosho/Peak driver Mark Pavidis with just a couple minutes remaining in the race. Eight-scale TQ Ryan Cavalieri passed Pavidis with seconds remaining to grab second.
While Bradley TQ’d and won the monster truck class, Matt Gosch put in a strong showing taking second place earning him a100% Pro-Line ride—and did we mention he’s just 13 years old?. Mugen’s Jason Ashton (also running an MBX5-T) was on fire, and bumped all the way up from the G-main (the lowest Main for monster trucks) to take home third place. Ashton even led part of the A-main despite being 12th on the grid for the start of the race.

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.

Tosolini, Cyrul Score At ROAR Carpet Nats

Chris Tosolini drove his SMC-powered, Fantom-motor Yokomo into the 1/10 Sedan Modified winner's circle at the ROAR On-Road Carpet Nationals. Chris TQ'd the class, ripping up Ripon Speedways Ozite with a blistering 24/5:11.45 run, but only won one of the triple A-Mains (Trinity's Paul Lemieux and Associated's Mike Dumas won the other rounds). But it's all about the points, and Tos had 'em.

Trinity's Josh Cyrul was the big winner in 1/12 Mod, besting Barry Baker and Mike Blackstock. Josh went into the Mains as top-qualifier with 41/8:07.73, and sat out the third main after winning the first two.

In the Nats other classes, Travis Schreven won Stock Touring, TJ Bradley took down the win in 1/12 4-cell stock with SMC power, and David Lee won the 1/12 Masters race, also with SMC cells.

Vray, Mugen, RB Concepts win the Worlds!

Frechman Guillaume Vray, driving an RB-powered Mugen MBX-5 Prospec has won the IFMAR World Championship! Details are few right now, but this victory breaks the longest winning stretch in the history of IFMAR competition by Kyosho of six straight wins. Mugen now claims its second victory in 1/8 off-road Worlds competition. American drivers Jeremy Kortz, Mark Pavidis and Chad Bradley finished 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively. Kortz finished on the same lap as the winner and second place finisher, but was in danger of going a lap down according to the time sheet. Pavidis finished two laps down but never crossed the stripe to complete what would have been his 103rd lap. Bradley and the next three drivers are all shown as completing 102 laps.

Congratulations to Guillaume Vray, Mugen Seiki, RB Concept, Futaba and Pro-Line for a hard-fought victory in the 2004 IFMAR 1/8 Off-Road World Championship.
