Ryan Maifield takes his 4th straight win in 4wd Mod at the 28th annual Cactus Classic.

In what has become one of the most anticipated events of the year, the 2014 Cactus Classic in sunny Scottsdale, AZ brings in racers from all over the world to battle under the beautiful Arizona sun for one of the most coveted titles of the year. In its 28th year of existence, the 2014 installment of the Cactus Classic is said to be the last at the Scottsdale, AZ location. Over the 21 years at this location the track has evolved from a naturally packed surface with water being applied every few runs, to a worn-in, natural blue-groove surface with blower and brooms to keep the groove clean, and most recently, large amounts of sugar to hold the dirt together to form a low-maintenance and consistent racing surface.

JConcepts RC10 Worlds Car New Releases

by Rich on March 28, 2014

JCO2305_altRC10 Worlds 2.5mm Carbon Fiber front shock tower

The RC10, the most classic design in R/C history has been reintroduced to the public and available options parts are in high demand. JConcepts is spot on with the release of the new vehicle with a Carbon Fiber option for the front shock tower. The stock vehicle comes standard with a fiberglass unit which carries all the original geometry, however, it lacks the pizzazz, strength, optional holes and appearance that Carbon Fiber can provide. The new Worlds car front shock tower includes only the wide-track front suspension geometry and designed specifically for drivers upgrading to the longer front a-arm version of the RC10. The tower includes detailed reinforced areas, adding strength in key areas as well as the improvement in material creates a more rigid feel, increasing the response in the front-end. Replace the fiberglass and go with authentic 2.5mm Carbon Fiber by JConcepts.
