Keven Hebert Wins Third in a Row at 2014 IIC

Keven Hebert Wins Third in a Row at 2014 IIC

Team Associated Banner

Now celebrating its 10th year, the International Indoor Championships (IIC) remains one of the most prestigious events in RC racing. Over 400 entries, including top racers around the world, attended the 2014 edition at the Riviera Hotel and Casino on the world-famous Las Vegas Strip. Competition was intense in all classes but the relaxed nature of the event and the sights and sounds of Vegas meant that most experienced a good time regardless of their race results.

After a strong fifth place finish at the 1/12 World Championships a week prior, Keven Hébert was looking to maintain his hot streak in Vegas. Keven sought a third win in a row in the Super Stock 13.5 TC class – a class that he not only drives well, but one in which he can take full advantage of his TC6.2’s excellent spec class handling and the power of his Reedy Sonic 540 Mach 2/7000mAh LiPo battery combination. Betting against Keven in this class means betting on a long shot.

Rocket round qualifying meant that the fastest single qualifying round would determine a driver’s main event starting position. Keven started things off with the fastest time in round 1 to set the early TQ. He bettered his time in round 2 and again in round 3 to maintain the number one position. In round 4, Keven was unable to improve his time but he still set the fastest time of the round and would start the main event from the pole position.

A clean start in the A Main allowed Keven to build a small gap early on. A battle for second allowed Keven to increase his lead and take the wire-to-wire victory – his third in a row and fourth in six years!

To cap off a great weekend, Keven finished second in the 1/12 Modified class with teammate Mike Haynes rounding out the podium positions.

Congratulations to the winners in all the classes and thanks to Scotty Ernst for conceiving and organizing this great event.

JConcepts: New Release RC10B5 Finnisher Body

JConcepts: New Release RC10B5 Finnisher Body

Finnish off the RC10B5, JConcepts debuts new body design for popular Team Associated buggy

The JConcepts design team has spent many hours in development with leading team drivers to develop a hot, new style body, specifically for the latest rear motor 2wd buggy vehicles. The Finnisher for the B5 is a completely tightened design, slimming the overall look of the popular Team Associated RC10B5 vehicle. JConcepts knows 1/10th off-road, and coming off the recent success of the Finnisher bodies, the designers adapted elements from the current fleet to create the ultimate high-grip rear-motor body design. 

Screen shot 2014-10-28 at 5.48.03 PM

The Finnisher sports a smoother high-speed transition with increased flow past the side-pods that lends itself perfect to high-speed circuits. As track conditions have advanced through additives, treatments and maintenance, the ultimate aero package flows through the turns, produces traction and jumps with consistency. During the most critical moments, the Finnisher has very stable driving characteristics that can translate into efficient qualifying and main event results.

Screen shot 2014-10-28 at 5.45.51 PM

When painted and detailed, the new body looks aggressive, and sets off any new vehicle with a distinct JConcepts style. The Finnisher is capped off with a center roof channel for high speed tracking stability, increased roof stiffness and dual side window treatment. The body includes two of the most popular 1/10th off-road wings on the market, the 6.5” Hi-Clearance wing.
