AE Introduces New RC10B6 & RC10B6D Team Kits


AE Introduces New Platform RC10B6 & RC10B6D Team Kits

Team Associated Banner

Champions by design. 1:10 scale 2WD off road has been Team Associated’s signature class since the release of the RC10 in 1984. The Team Associated RC10 buggy series has won 12 of the 16 I.F.M.A.R. World Championships contested since the racing class began. In fact, every Team Associated 2WD buggy platform ever released has won at least one I.F.M.A.R. World Championship!

Divide and conquer! In today’s racing, traction dictates your setup — period! With both B6 and B6D configurations available, getting to the top of the podium has never been easier. Out of the box, the B6 offers racers a setup developed for high to very-high traction, whereas the B6D excels when traction is low to high. Racing at multiple tracks, or where traction changes throughout the day, has never been easier; setups and tuning parts are interchangeable between the two configurations, making the B6 platform extremely versatile. Both versions come with the speed, durability and lineage expected of a true champion. Choose the configuration that suits your track and conquer the competition!

Hara testing San Diego based R/C Manufacturer Tekno RC


Atsushi Hara testing San Diego, CA based R/C Manufacturer Tekno RC

Tekno RC Logo

24 hours ago WC Atsushi Hara posted on his Facebook page a photo of his “new challenge”: The Japanese driver is testing all 1/8 Tekno RC cars. Tekno RC is rising and the performances of their top drivers Ryan Lutz and Joe Bornhorst prove the ability of Tekno vehicles at the top level. If Tekno is very popular in US, the brand has a huge progress margin in Europe and Asia. If the European side is growing up under the leadership of of their team manager Ilias Arkoudaris, there is still much to do in Asia. Sign with Hara will be a big added bonus for Tekno and a good way for Hara to return to the front stage. We will keep you informed as this story is to be continued!

Keven Hebert doubles at the Mile High Indoor Champs


Keven Hebert doubles at the Mile High Indoor Championships

Team Associated Banner

In only a few years, the Mile High Indoor Championships has transformed from a cozy regional event into a full-blown national competition. The best drivers from around the country converged upon the newly carpeted 5280 Raceway for the last major event of the carpet racing season.

Factory driver Keven Hebert arrived early to get acquainted with the high-grip CRC carpet and his relatively new Reedy-powered TC7. The extra track time paid off as Keven went on to grab the pole position for Sunday’s single A-Main event. Ralph Burch lined up second followed by ROAR Carpet Nats winner Chris Adams in third.

Keven took the lead over the second- and third-place cars early on in the main event. Adams and Burch later retired after a huge crash, which allowed Keven to claim the win by half a lap over the second-place finisher.

In 1/12 Modified qualifying, Keven claimed the pole position by a margin of four seconds over Kory Harbke. In the main event the two battled head to head over the last four minutes, with Keven taking another win to cap off a very successful weekend in the Mile High City.
