ROAR form official 4wd SCT class

ROAR combine 1/8th & Sedan Gas Nationals

The ROAR Executive Committee and Section Chairs, working with various Affiliate Partners, just announced the formation of the Official ROAR 1:10 scale 4 wheel drive short course truck racing class. Their teams set the following guidelines as they leveraged their 4wd SCT Specs and SCT Body Specs to introduce the 4×4 SCT Class. The ROAR Rule book, the online version, will be updated in the next day or two and you can find those changes in colored font. The printed version will not reflect this addition.

Our Guiding Principals for Short Course Truck Racing Classes were:
1 – Keeping these Classes (SCT 2wd and 4wd) true to scale appearance
2 – Keep these trucks from going too fast so to provide competitive racing at reasonable speeds
3 – Keep the cost of entry AND cost to continue operating as low as possible
4 – Keep the class fun in nature

Ty Tessmann wins Nitro Challenge Pro Truggy class

Ty Tessmann wins Nitro Challenge Pro Truggy class

The Dirt Nitro Challenge took place last weekend at the Nitro Pit in Wittmann, Arizona and young Canadian Hot Bodies team driver, and recent Worlds Warmup top qualifier, Ty Tessmann ended qualifying with 3rd in Pro Truggy and 6th in Pro Buggy. Ty got a clean start in truggy with Jared Tebo and Ryan Cavalieri out in front of him. As the race progressed Ty, Tebo and Maifield battled for the 2nd place as Cavalieri increased his lead to 14 seconds at one point in the race. The first place seemed unreachable for everyone else and it was thought that Cavalieri had the race in the bag but that was not to be. Ty continued to drive smooth, consistent and clean laps and slowly caught Ryan, and after a few bobbles from the leader and traffic for both of them, Ty took over the lead and kept it smooth and consistent to take his first major US win in front of Ryan Cavalieri and Ryan Maifield.

Exotek Racing 416XL chassis

Exotek Racing 416XL chassis

Exotek Racing have introduced the Exotek 416XL, a high performance multi adjustment LiPo chassis that represents uncompromised balanced LiPo performance. With the unique CNC manufactured stainless steel weights your LiPo battery can be positioned to have equal left and right balance within grams without the need to add lead weight and without raising the battery up higher. The 2mm thick 416XL chassis is designed and tested to equalize lateral flex. No more inconsistent flex problems caused by 6 large battery cut outs like in the stock chassis. The net result is much more predictable handling. A special included 3mm thick servo mount wing securely mounts your servo. Its raised design maintains the narrow chassis profile to prevent chassis scrub in corners.
