Default One more point

About Team Associated. They have been winning races forever. If they put their mind to it, the car is just awesome. The rc10 World Car is still a great buggy today. There is no I in Team Associated....Well one i...

The best are just the best no matter how you look at it. Leave mechanical gremlins out and that buggy race probably could have finished with all 3 within 1-2 sec. of each other... Oh, and nearly 3 laps ahead of the rest of the field.



well i guess than maifield and tebo are just better drivers this year than.

Not just the shock angle. Steering and suspension geometry was completely changed. It is very, very similar to the MP9 now.

Got to see the Buggy the week before the Nats at the JConcepts race in Omaha. The buggy is a very good looking kit. It will be very popular and from the looks of it will be very successful. The price point of it being very "MP9" like without the price of one will also drive some of its popularity. AE has something good on their hands.

What bodies are the AE guys running on the truggys? I know Maifield runs the CE JC concepts but does Cavalieri still run the bulldog body? Just wondering!
