Surikarn and Cavalieri Win Reedy Race!

Tamiya factory pilot Surikarn Chaidajsuriya put the smack down on the Invitational class at the Reedy Touring Car Race of Champions this weekend, with pro drivers Greg Hodapp (XRAY) and Atshushi Hara (HPI) in tow. In the Open class, Team Losi's Ryan Cavalieri took a break from off-road just long enough to smoke the field with his Trinity D6-powered Team Losi Triple-XS, beating fellow Losi driver Mike Truhe and Associated's Brad Thielke. In 19-Turn class action, Charlie Suangka won with his Novak-powered Tamiya TRF 415. All the 19-Turn drivers ran Reedy Spec 19 motors.

Team Losi Sweeps IFMAR Off-Road World Championships!

Team Losi drivers made history at the 2002 IFMAR Off-Road World Championships taking the top qualifying position and finishing first and second in both the 2WD and 4WD classes. This year’s event, held in Pretoria, South Africa, marks the first time a single RC car manufacturer has won and TQ’d every class at the most prestigious off-road event in the world. Matt Francis and his Trinity-powered Team Losi Triple-X4 prototype and Triple-X buggies took the top qualifying positions in both 4WD and 2WD, and Matt went on to win the 2WD class with teamate Brian Kinwald in tow. Jukka Steenari, the 2000 IFMAR 4WD champ and Team Losi’s newest engineer, repeated as the 4WD World Champion using Orion power. Matt was a close second in a race that saw Team Losi cars finish 1-2-3-4-5-7-9, and overall, more A-Main finalists at the Worlds used Team Losi cars than all other manufactures combined.

Congratulations to Team Losi, and stay tuned for reports from the IFMAR On-Road Worlds soon!

XRAY drivers Burch and Dumas take 1st and 2nd at Novak TC Champs

XRAY drivers Burch and Dumas take 1st and 2nd at Novak TC Champs

Ralph Burch TQ'ed and won the hotly-contested modified touring class at the Novak US Touring Car Championships held at Trackside Hobbies in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Burch and XRAY teammate Mike Dumas were both driving new XRAY T1 Factory cars equipped with a few "in-development" prototype parts. New Epic 9-turn Cobalt modified motors using the Trinity XXX Silver brushes were reportedly used for power in both cars with Burch sporting SMC and Dumas running EPIC batteries. A straw poll of those who attended the race showed that XRAY cars were very popular for a significant portion of the field, including many privateers. There was also a common theme in the comments about the big horsepower of the EPIC Cobalt motors used to power the top two cars - more than a few racers in attendance said these new motors were the class of the field.

Silver State: Tebo Doubles!

Silver State: Tebo Doubles!

Team Associated and Kyosho ace Jared Tebo won both Pro classes at the Silver State Nitro challenge. The Kid started second for the main event in the 1/10 Pro class, battled early with The Drake, and eventually settled his O’Donnell-powered Factory Team GT into the lead. Trinity's hard-charging Ryan Cavalieri dueled with Tebo in the back half of the race, often looking faster. The two must have swapped spots a dozen times, and it was an edge-of-your-seat thriller as Tebo got a better run down the nasty, rutted back straight on the last lap to sneak by for a 1.1 second victory over Pudge. Click "More" for 1/8 action.

In 1/8, Tebo had troubles during qualifying and was forced to bump up from the B-main. He won the B for a 12th place spot on the A-main grid. Early on, it looked as TQ Mark Pavidis would check out and win, but an early flame out forced him pack in the pack. Tebo sliced and carved through the field with surgical precision as he picked off the other racers. As the clock wound down, Cavalieri was up in second and closing the gap, but it wasn’t enough to catch The Kid.

Associated and Losi battle it out in the UK MAY 2001
