JConcepts would like to announce the signing of David Ronnefalk to the world wide race team. A very talented driver, David is the current IFMAR 1/8th Off-Road World Champion and a 2x European 1/8th Off-Road Champion. His accomplishments in 1/10th Off-Road are nearly as impressive, taking a podium finish at the 2015 World Championships in 4wd finishing 3rd overall at Yatabe Arena. Starting a young age, David climbed the ladder to success very quickly with support from family and friends. However, his racing career really blossomed after uniting with Team Orion’s Adrien Bertin, who together with his father, have helped provide a steady force on and off the track.
Jason Ruona states, “We are obviously very pleased to bring David on-board with the JConcepts Racing Team. His talent is well recognized but his professional attitude, complete racing program and diversity as a driver is what gives me the greatest enthusiasm for the future.”
David Ronnefalk states, “I'm very glad and honored to have the opportunity to be a part of such a dedicated company as JConcepts. Very excited to see what 2017 holds for us, and with the support from Jason and everybody at JConcepts I feel like my race program is complete.”
Look for David to get 2017 started quickly by attending the DHI Cup in the 1/10th classes and then moving into 1/8th Off-Road at the Montpellier GP.
JConcepts welcomes Ryan Cavalieri to the world wide race team. The 4x IFMAR World Champion and 24x ROAR National Champion brings a lineage of racing experience and history back to JConcepts, for whom he has World Championship winning history with. Ryan carries the ability to race in 8 different classes of competition which makes him the ideal candidate to race, promote and assist in further development of an already complete line offered from JConcepts.
One of the greatest drivers of all time, Ryan continued his winning ways in 2016 by winning another ROAR National Championship in the 2wd SCT class, swept the Surf City Classic, Team Associated Championships and most recently, the Top Gun Challenge. Look for Ryan to get started early as he attends the 30th annual Winter Midwest Championships in Jeffersonville, Ohio.

For the ninth generation, the body-shell of the 1993 F-Series was given another major upgrade. To further improve its aerodynamics, the forward bodywork was given a slightly lower hoodline, rounding the front fenders and grille. The “Blue Oval,” a trademark of all Ford pickups, makes a striking appearance centered in the grille. Stout fender flares are carved ever so carefully in to the panels while openings allow for a vast assortment of tires on the market. The F-250 single-cab look is strong and is a careful reminder of a time when passengers sat side-by-side during a typical outing.
The bed itself is solid and includes slated details to look like its 1:1 counterpart. Light body lines and raised sections are present throughout such as fuel tank latch, window weather strip outlines and hood indentations. The hard body-line positioned front to back give the truck heart and the “Built Ford Tough” personality. The body comes clear and includes an authentic decal sheet and easy to use window mask for the detailed hobbyist. The F-250 drops on the Ascender and Axial 12.5” wheelbase setting, with standard body mounts.
Jason discusses some recent race results and talks about the new JConcepts carpet tires.
