Interviews: Josh Pain Talks RC8B! (2360 Reads)
Posted by admin on Monday, June 29, 2009 - 01:13 PM news Team Associated have released the new RC8B. What are the main difference they have made between the old RC8 and the new RC8B?


Josh Pain: Obviously from the photos, are the new blue aluminum shock towers, which transform the car into a totally different machine from the old model. Along with other changes, are new steering geometry, plastics and a hot set of aluminum pivot blocks. Things that don’t stand out are things like lightweight engine mount and the new battery box and the list goes on.


All I can say is that since I have been running the new car, my results have gone from mid pack to the pointy end of the field, with two top qualifiers, 3 pole positions and a title win this year at Nationals Series Events.

I think that speaks for itself as far as how much better the new car is.

Newman and Xray 808 Dominates the Masters (685 Reads)
Posted by admin on Monday, June 22, 2009 - 01:27 PM news

Newman - Brice - Bui

After finishing night 1 with a commanding lead Newman kept it all together on night 2 to take a dominating win over Mick Brice and Gary Bui, with Xray 808 taking all bar one podium position in all classes. Newman putting on an awesome display all weekend, Brice getting his setup quickly to keep the pressure on over all the 10 rounds, and the always fast Gary Bui proving he is still one of the quickest drivers setting the fastest lap at 31.272 seconds on the new circuit, which proved to be a very challenging design, with some drivers commenting that the level of grip was to high early in the event, not something you hear often in dirt racing!! Hyper 9 driver Tony Knauth struggled all weekend with setup to finish fourth outright, with X1CR driver Kyle Hodges fifth. Junior driver Tom Jones pushed his 808 hard all weekend to finish 11 points ahead of closest rival Jesse Newman 808, with Henry Bui 808 one point behind, the junior drivers putting on a spectacular show with a great battle going on throughout. And finally the Sport Buggy class saw John Chau 808 stand on the podium for the first time ever to take a hard fought win over Mark Sinclair 808, with Dean Baker driving a Caster EX1 Fusion finishing in third.
