by Dave Duncan on November 5, 2014

FullSizeRenderBrian Valles and Alex Sturgeon win big at the 2014 Short Course Showdown Nationwide Tour Finals.

Hobby Plex is the race facility at the Hobbytown USA here in Omaha, Ne. They were the host of the 2014 Short Course Showdown Nationwide Tour Finals. JConcepts is one of the major sponsors of the Showdown and have been from the very first year back in 2010. Dave Duncan made the trip from Florida to represent JConcepts and help all the team attending the race. David Fast, Brian Valles, Tom Rinderknecht and Zac Gastelum where just a few of the team drivers that made the trip to race the event. David Fast was running 3 classes total, Mod 2wd Buggy with his Team Associated B5M, Mod 4wd Buggy with his Team Associated B44.3 and Mod 4wd SCT with his Tekno SCT410. Brian Valles was running 1 class, Stock 2wd Buggy with his TLR 22 2.0. Dave Duncan was running 1 class, Stock 2wd SCT with his Team Associated SC10.2. Practice was all day Friday from 10am to 7pm. It was a fresh track layout and was grooving up nicely all day. All the team drivers and others quickly found that super soft “green” Dirt Webs in the rear of all the cars was the ticket. Fronts just depended on the driver and what feel they wanted on each car.

Super Cup Championship Series – Round 3

by Lance MacDonald on November 3, 2014

TrackIt was a picture perfect day in sunny Florida at the Hurricane Off-road RC Track located inside Lake Park just outside of Tampa. The brutal summer weather had taken its toll on the historic track and it took tons of hard work from the entire group of volunteers as the racing surface was primed for great outdoor racing.

When Practice began Friday, racers searched for tire combo and setups for the changing track surface as it began to burn a groove in. At daybreak on Saturday racers filled into the park and we all were very excited about track conditions. The crew laid down Calcium on the track the night before and a small rain shower in the night wet the surface perfectly. The groove that had begun to show in practice was still there and more defined than when we left. Practice ended race morning just before 9am as the heat sheets filled with 132 entries from as far away as Tifton Ga.

The base of the shafts’ design is centered around a .143” titanium hex size which gradually tapers down into a 3.5mm thread base design which accepts the TLR HD ball-cups. The focus of the styling surrounds the lengthened adjustment hex area and the “finned” cuts that rotate about the center. The fin turnbuckles are lightweight and the original design brings out the glamour and quality that makes titanium one of the most sought after exotic materials in the world.
