Monsters of the Midwest Series – Round 4

by Rich on September 2, 2014

Ben_EllisRound 4 of the Monsters of the Midwest series was “planned” to take place at JCP-RC Raceways massive outdoor location in Edinburgh, Indiana on August 30th, “planned” being the key word. Mother Nature had different “plans” however. Rain showers over the course of Saturday morning continued to threaten the event, leaving the series organizers one decision, go inside. JCP-RC Raceways primary Indianapolis location, located just 40 minutes north of the Edinburgh facility, plays host to one of the states largest indoor facilities. Having had to have rescheduled the opening round of the series already due to rain, the series organizers along with the racers felt it was a no brainer to take the 4th round of the series indoors.

Competing in the 2wd Buggy, and 2wd SCT classes, JConcepts Team Driver Ben Ellis was able to adjust quickly to the change of plans, and was able to secure the TQ and Win in both classes. JConcepts Dirt Webs in green compound kept Ben’s B5M locked in, while Double Dee’s in green compound gave his SC10.2 all the traction it needed.

JConcepts’ Munday & Bonetti Win Victorian Drivers Series in Melbourne

Ray Munday (2wd Open and 2wd SCT) and Glen Bonetti (Stadium Truck) have sealed victory in their classes for the 2014 Victorian Drivers Series for JConcepts with 1 round to go after winning the Keilor Cup on the weekend.

Date: 10 August 2014
Event: Keilor Cup (Round 3 of Victorian Drivers Series)
Track: Keilor, Melbourne (www.keilorrc.org.au)
Weather: 7~11C, Overcast / Showers
Classes: 1/10 Electric Off-Road. 170 Entries.

The 3rd round of the Victorian State Series was held at the historic Keilor club in Melbourne. With a huge field of 170 entries for a 1 day event and inclement winter weather it was a long day for all racers with several rain showers passing throughout the day, making tyre and setup choice difficult as the track conditions were different almost every round. The club worked very hard to squeeze 3 rounds of qualifying and 3 rounds of A finals in, with only the last 2 races being run under lights. The entry list was deep with many previous national title holders racing. JConcepts was well represented with Ray Munday, Ashley Peeler, Glen Bonetti in the open classes, John Watkins in Stadium Truck and Scott Giles in the stock class.

2353_600pxHaving available option parts for a popular vehicle makes the hobby just that more fun and interesting. JConcepts has rolled out a sweet looking replacement motor plate for the popular RC10B5 and RC10B5M vehicles. With the evolution of race tracks, high flying jumps are becoming the normal obstacle. It’s inevitable that a driver will have a miscue and challenge the rear-end durability of the vehicle. Your racing friends over at JConcepts have taken a lot into consideration while designing and developing a replacement motor plate.
