This past weekend JConcepts completed a near sweep of every class and a full sweep of the modified classes at the SuperCup (6 of 7). JConcepts products were used by numerous drivers in pursuit of that elusive series crown, and in doing so they racked up multiple TQ's and Wins. The series not only proved successful for JConcepts, but also for electric racers in Florida, showing that electric is back and here to stay.
Jason Ruona finished the year with an impressive 3 class wins with 3 very different vehicles. He was responsible for JConcepts' results in 2w mod, 4w mod, and J82 Outlaw taking 9 TQ's and 8 wins combined along the way. As the man behind JConcepts, Jason's cars were fully outfitted with the latest JConcepts gear; the B4 and B44 Hi-Flow bodies were used in combination with Rulux wheels and Bar Codes for shoes. The J82 remained box stock throughout the season, with only the occasional rear tire change.
RCSignUp.com and Jab Graphix front man Bobby Phillips took time out of his busy schedule to lay it down in Truck Mod, using a key TQ to take the series win. Bobby sported the Hi-Flow T4 truck body, Rulux wheels and Double Dees all the way around.
Local up and coming driver Zach Mote took 2w Stock in spectacular fashion only missing out on one possible point when considering the best 3 of 4 round format. Zach used the full compliment of JConcepts products on his B4 with the Hi-Flow body, and Rulux wheels shod with Double Dee's (rear) and Groovy’s (front).
Tim Kowal got out to a good start at the beginning of the season in J82 Stock and carried that momentum through to the end of the year. The mix of Double Dee and Goose Bump rear tires used in his campaign were so effective that he didn’t even have to run the penultimate round to take the series victory.
