Just last weekend, the GS Cup for off road was held in Malaysia and attracted a large attendance. In the main buggy final it was Scott Yang driving a GS that took the win ahead of 2nd place finisher Ah M with a Hong Nor and David Lim with a Kyosho back in 3rd. The truggy class was won by Hengster with a Hong Nor followed by Ah Leng with his GS in second and just ahead of fellow GS racer Pegan who finished 3rd.

As we reported yesterday, Jared Tebo, in a last minute move decided to switch to a Jammin X1 buggy just before the qualifying at the high stakes RC Pro final being held in Illinois. Well, not only did he TQ the event with his new ride but also went on to win the event too.
In the truggy class that saw a close battle beween eventual TQ Chad Bradley and Taylor James, it was Taylor who took the win after Chad dropped out with a clutch bell bearing failure.
Jared Tebo (old pic) has made the very last minute decision to switch over to the Jammin X1 buggy at this weekends RC Pro finals, being held in Rockford Illinois, and go on to take TQ in the Pro Buggy class at the event.
Jared Tebo picked-up Taylor’s Jammin X-1 back-up buggy to run in the R/C Pro finals. I quess Tebo, not being in the winners circle the last year, opt for the best buggy for the job. Tebo literally threw the car together just prior to qualifying and set the best combined times to take TQ honors. Taylor qualified third, Matt Gosch qualifies fifth, and Chad Bradley also getting in the A final.
In the Pro Truggy class it was Chad Bradley to took the top qualifying spot ahead of Futaba Nitro Challenge winner Taylor James. With both drivers winning 2 qualifiers each, Chad took it by having the fastest 3rd time.

Team Losi have officially released their new 1/8th scale truggy to the eagerly awaiting masses of off road nuts enthusiasts. Based on the recently released, and already successful, 8ight buggy, this chassis has had the standard buggy to truggy conversion; longer wheelbase, longer chassis, longer wishbones etc. With the truggy class blowing up all across the globe and considering this cars pedigree on dirt we’re sure that the 8ight truggy will be at the sharp end of the grid come race day.
Created with passion and perfected by obsession, the 8IGHT-T will redefine Truggy racing with what might be called an unfair advantage. The 8IGHT-T Race Roller is the first competition-level, performance-built truggy based on Team Losi’s ground-breaking 4WD nitro platform.
