MurfDogg to build ‘illegal’ 17.5 motor

murfdogg

MurfDogg Racing in the United States has just announced their new TITAN 17.5 brushless motor. While this may seem like just another 17.5 motor, MurfDogg has taken the bold step to build (and market as such) an illegal 17.5 motor. The motor is designed for non-sanctioned events, and tracks that do not require tech inspection. Some are all smiles with excitement, while others are saying the company is simply building a motor for cheating, marketing it as such, and hurting the 17.5 class. RCNews has the full story HERE.

ROAR says “NO!” to new 1/10 wheels

No No No

ROAR has announced today that the “new style” 1/10 wheels and tires (AKA EVO Series and Pro-Line VTR Series), are in fact illegal for competition use at ROAR sanctioned events for the remainder of 2014. While the organization has not ruled them out for eternity, this ruling does rule them out for the upcoming ROAR 1/10 Offroad Nationals in Florida. The new style wheels are actually a 2.4″ design, as opposed to the traditional 2.2″ wheel, and mount up like an 1/8 scale buggy wheel and tire. Currently AKA offers a conversion to take their EVO style wheels and tires back to the old school method, however, as ROAR sees this as a modification to the wheels (which is not allowed), they have also deemed the conversions illegal for use.

Reigning 2WD World Champion Jared Tebo made it to the top of the 2WD podium after a couple of difficult results recently, taking the victory and TQ at the (usually) notoriously warm Hot Rod Hobbies Shootout organised by Jimmy Babcock in Saugus, California. Ty Tessmann and Ryan Cavalieri would go onto take 2nd and 3rd respectively with Ty finishing only 1.2 secs behind Tebo in A2 of 2WD. Whilst in the 4WD class, Ty Tessmann steered his HB D413 buggy to victory in 2 A mains, as well as taking TQ infront of Ryan Cavalieri in 2nd and Dustin Evans taking the final spot on the podium.
