Thumbs up To The Winners Go The Spoils!




Rod Rippee, The 2004 ROAR Stock Off Road National Champ, with Chris Baumgartner who finished 3rd overall in the 4WD Class.






Here is a write-up posted over that was posted on the Orion website with regards to the Event, the BJ4, and their Drivers:


Just weeks after JConcepts began shipping the newly released BJ4, 8 BJ4s made their way to the ROAR Stock Off Road Nationals in Chillicothe, MO, in an unmatched appearance. "I really had no time with the car before the Nats. I only got to practice with 4 battery packs before the first qualifier," said Rod Rippee.

"There were so many little things on the car that showed all of the thought that went into the car." Baumgartner stated. "From the steering stops on the hubs, the slot cut in the rear chassis so the rear diff can sit as low as possible, not to mention the way the entire front kick-up, diff case, and shock tower all flow together."

On July 23 and 24, qualifying rounds placed the BJ4s ahead early. With 2 rounds of qualifying on Friday, and 2 on Saturday, Rod Rippee and Chris Baumgartner, mastered the BJ4. Rippee set the fastest time of the weekend in the third round of qualifying and also won the fourth round by close to 4 seconds.

The much anticipated release of the JConcepts BJ4 lived up to expectation in the Triple A-Mains on Sunday, July 25. With 4 cars in the A-Main, Rippee, Baumgartner, Chad Knapp and Justin Dewey, the BJ4s demonstrated speed, accuracy, and superior handling. "Rod and I both joked that the shaft drive gave us a legal, but unfair, advantage," Baumgartner joked.

Rippee also had no problems with the mains; "I had a straight away lead after the second lap in both mains and never trailed in either." With two first place finishes in the first two A-Mains, there was no reason to run a third A-main; Rippee was the 2004 ROAR Stock Off Road National Champ with the BJ4.

Congrats to Rod Rippee, National Champ, and all BJ4 drivers.

Does anybody have a idea as to where they are at on the pre-order list? I know I'm gonna have to wait awhile to get mine but I'd like to know how fast are they shipping them out?

sounds like the only things that people break are the common parts you can get off the shelves.

You may also want to pickup some more of that underbody cover sheet as from what I have read it goes fairly fast. JConcepts should have an underbody to sell soon from what i understand.

When did the TC3 get a double-deck CF plate chassis? That information surely passed me by..................

Thumbs up BJ4 Magazine Reviews

In the December issue of 'RC Driver' there is a review of the BJ4. Check it out!


According to Jason (Ruona), Xtreme RC and RC Car Action will also have their reviews out soon. He has seen the Xtreme RC one and it looked really good in the magazine!
