After an intense weekend of racing at OCRC Raceway in Huntington Beach, California, the 2015 Reedy Race of Champions is complete! The prestigious Invitational Class came down to the final round of 4wd buggy to clearly crown a champion. Clinching a final round victory, Team Losi Racing’s Ryan Maifield sealed the deal to win his first Reedy International Race of Champions! This came as a momentous occasion for Ryan, as he narrowly missed out with 2nd place finishes in both 2013 and 2014. Team Kyosho’s Jared Tebo would finish 2nd overall behind Maifield, with Team Associated’s Ryan Cavalieri taking home third.

The progress with new #XRAY XB2 has been significant but still plenty things to test with @MartinBayer88#RCcar
The luxury European manufacturer is currently hard at work on a standalone ‘XB2′ 2WD 1/10th electric buggy platform, no doubt targeting it to be fully race ready in time for the outdoor summer season as well as World Championships later this year in Japan.
