It is with heavy hearts that we must inform everyone of Gene Husting’s passing. Gene was an icon in the RC industry and the founding partner along with Roger Curtis of Team Associated.
The public face of Team Associated for many years, Gene’s racing career started long before R/C cars ever existed. A street racer in his teens, Gene put his love of cars and racing on hold to serve in the US Army during World War II. Upon his return, Gene went back into racing, this time at the dry lakes and drag strips. Gene built the engines while his partner , Reece Adams, built the cars. Their 1934 Ford flat head powered Coupe set records at all 6 drag strips in Southern California, and never lost one race. Soon after, Gene designed the first streamline dragster, and on its very first run at Lions Drag Strip, it broke the track record. Mickey Thompson, the track manager at the time, was there to see it happen.
