Grid RC Hyper 9e motor mount

Grid RC Hyper 9e motor mount

Grid RC have announced that they will release a new motor mount for the Hyper 9e that will utilize the same eccentric style motor plate, as incorporated in their other mounts. This gives precise gear meshing and multi-hole mounting, and uses all six available mounting screws for a Tekin or four mounting screws for a Neu/Castle motor. What’s unique about this new motor mount, is the ability to gain access to the center differential without removing the mount and disturbing the motor.

Cavalieri fastest on Day 1 of Spektrum Challenge

Nestled in the heart of Wisconsin, Trackside Hobbies plays host this weekend to the Spektrum Off-Road Challenge. Traveling from sunny Southern California to represent Team Associated is 1:10 electric ace, Ryan Cavalieri. Having ran exclusively 1:8 Buggy for the past few months, culminating with his “A” main finish at the 1:8 World Championship, Cavalieri pulled his Factory Team B4.1 and B44.1 off the shelf and laid down the fastest qualifying time in the first round of qualifying in 2wd and 4wd Modified.  Not to be left out, Reedy’s very own Sean Cochran took his Factory Team SC10 to the top spot in the ultra-competitive SCT 17.5 class. With three more qualifiers on Saturday and the main events on Sunday, Cavalieri is off to a good start at what has become one of the largest indoor events in the country with 300+ entries
