JConcepts Indoor Finals Header

We caught up with JConcepts driver Bubba Boggs at the 2014 JConcepts Indoor National Series Finals in Omaha, Nebraska earlier this month. Bubba let us take a look under the hood of his RC10B5. Bubba was one of the few drivers if not the only driver running the B5 rear motor that weekend. Since we were in Omaha, NE earlier this month Bubba has aquired an RC10B5M now… Congrats!

PL: Prime VTR 2.4” 2WD Off-Road Buggy Front Tires

Pro-Line Banner

This is a pair of Prime VTR 2.4” 2WD Off-Road Buggy Front Tires. Many indoor off-road race tracks have turned to carpet or pure clay style dirt in search of ultimate traction, eliminating the need for traditional treaded tires. Pro-Line’s all new Prime tires are targeted directly at racers currently running full “slick” tires, saving them from having to grind treaded tires down while delivering improved performance.

Pro-Line’s Prime tires feature unique grooves that add traction and stability when the track is freshly watered or when there is a slight layer of thin dust that would cause a traditional “slick” tire to just spin. The raised treaded portion of the Prime tire has a distinctive rough surface texture similar to a ground “slick” tire and makes the Prime tire have maximum performance right out of the package.

This is an Extended Body Mount Kit with Secure-Loc Caps for the Stampede 4×4. Pro-Line continues to innovate with more must-have accessories for your 1:10 Monster Truck. The all-new Pro-Line body mount kit includes adjustable body mounts so you can fit any body on your truck perfectly! But, the Pro-Line Engineers did not stop there. Instead of just using the same old flimsy body clips that always get lost and bent up, the Pro-Line Extended Body Mount kit includes a revolutionary screw on body mounting system for a strong and secure mount every time. No more getting stabbed in the finger by those nasty clips! Just screw down the included setscrew into the body mount, place the O-Ring over the setscrew and mount your body as you normally would, but with the added safety, security and styling of Pro-Line’s innovative screw on body mounting system!

Naoto Matsukura and Yokomo part ways


Naoto Matsukura and Yokomo part ways

Yokomo

Shocking news has hit the R/C world today as multi-time World Champion, Naoto Matsukura, has announced his departure from Yokomo. The two have worked together over the course of the past ten years to accomplish World Championship titles in 1/12 scale, touring car, and a long list of victories in both onroad and offroad genres. According to Matsukura, the contract ended “amicably”.

Where Naoto is headed is still unknown, however, being a ‘jack of all trades’ we suspect he will be looking for a new home with a company similar to Yokomo, in which offers an extensive line of onroad AND offroad vehicles such as Team Associated, XRAY, Serpent, Schumacher, Hot Bodies, VBC Racing, and so on. Then again, he wouldn’t be the first driver to run multiple brand vehicles for the various racing classes (ex. Robert Batlle – Mugen 1/8 scale, Team C 1/10 scale).
