When Team Associated drivers Ryan Cavalieri, Travis Amezcua and Ty Tessmann put their heads together with the Pro-Line development team with a mission to develop bodies with class leading performance in the 1:8th ranks, they came up with this: the Pro-Line BullDog T4.1 Clear Body, which is intended for use with the Team Associated T4.1 1:10 Truck. BullDog bodies now set the standard in performance for T4.1 owners. After achieving such impressive results, Pro-Line is now bringing BullDog cab forward technology to the 1:10 class.

This event is now in its 24th year running the event is as popular as ever.

Team Associated drivers Ryan Cavalieri and Ryan Maifield battled it out for the top qualifying position in the Truck Modified class with their Factory Team T4.1 trucks. In the end it was Cavalieri edging out Maifield for the top qualifying honors. With the grid set, the two drivers battled it out in A1 and A2 with each gaining a victory and setting the stage for a winner-take-all showdown in A3. Cavalieri jumped out to a quick lead in the final main event and an untimely bobble by Maifield gave Cavalieri all the cushion he needed to pilot his T4.1 to the winner’s circle.

Posted on Friday, January 14th, 2011 | in News | 1 Comment

Officially licensed by Ford, JConcepts introduces the 1979 Ford F-250 Ranger SCT body. This thing is old school but pretty cool looking if you’re into older model cars – from a time when a truck was pretty much just a truck – with no frills or luxury. So, this body fits the Fits Traxxas Slash, Traxxas Slash 4×4, Team Associated SC10 and other similar Short Course Truck’s.

JConcepts Body

Built as they were in the good ole days, JConcepts has brought an essence of the 1979 truck together with the latest offerings in competitive Short Course Racing. With detailed 70’s styling, the hood scoop immediately is a standout retro feature which lends itself to the grill, fender and authentic 70’s cab styling. JConcepts left no detail untouched on bringing this old / new theme to the SCT crowd and most notably the rear roll bars and front to back horizontal body lines that give the “79” unmatched SCT realism.

Now just because this is an old model body doesn’t mean it lacks anything in performance. The 1979 stance has been optimized utilizing dimensional aspects of the other popular JConcepts bodies, the Manta and Raptor SVT.I don’t know if it’s my style but you’ll definitely be unique at the track with this Ford tough bod. Let us know what you think!
