Inside Look - Ryan Maifield's Nationals Winning Ebuggy.

Inside Look – JConcepts RC10 EGT Racing Truck

As a country that's always been in love with trucks, the RC10T stadium truck was a huge success for Team Associated back in the early 90's and when the big AE made a gas version dubbed the RC10GT, truck popularity was through the roof. However, despite celebrating many years at the top of many... View This Project

Inside Look – Max Flurer’s Winning Outlaw Sprint Car

There's no doubt that Max Flurer has racing in his blood.

Stinky Pinky

When JConcepts released an RC version of the 1967 Chevy Chevelle for the Street Eliminator scene, former RC driver “Disco Dean” Karns was all over it. “Oh man, that looks a lot like my car, you guys should make a Stinky Pinky 3 replica.” Karns, now one of the stars of the TV Show, Discovery...

Inside Look – Ryan Maifield’s DNC Winning Truggy

Inside Look - RC10EGT Pro Build

Before the explosion of 1/8th scale racing, there was a time period where gas-powered stadium trucks filled the heat sheets from top to bottom and perfectly bridged the gap between the exciting, fun-filled 1/10th electric racing with real enduro style racing that incorporated pitstop strategy,...
