See: JQRacing

Recently JQ headed over to the Dominican Republic for an event, that produced some never before seen action, including live music and flame throwers during the nitro main, a one handed 1:10th truck race to victory, while drinking a 1 liter beer, and some very very fat whips. It was a great event, and one which should be back next year. Below you have a short report from the organisers, DRC Speedway.

JQRacing lovers & haters competition

See: JQRacing

Prior to this years Neo Race JQRacing announced two totally amazing opportunities for drivers, however in typical RC Gypsy style the ideas were hatched only a few days in advance of the event but despite this they were both a tremendous success. The rules of the Lover or Hater competition were simple:

ProStar THECar coloured carbon fibre parts

See: ProStar R/C

ProStar RC have introduced new coloured carbon fibre radio plate and Kevlar shock towers for the JQ THECar Black Edition. First up is the blue or black carbon fibre radio plate, designed and strengthened in key areas prone to breaking. ProStar have excluded the servo mount “slots” for stronger servo “holes” and eliminated a mounting hole that is not needed and added additional material and streamlined the design to make a better looking and stronger servo tray than stock. They also added threaded transponder mounts integrated into the tray itself so no other hardware or transponder mounts are needed.

JQ talks about the BLACK Edition

THECar designer/factory driver/guru/agitator of ideas/crazy (a bit) Joseph Quagraine explains what the idea is behind the new BLACK Edition buggy by JQRacing. A lot of pictures, and an explanation of the changes to the buggy are available in English, German and French. Soon, JQ will also release a set up guide, specifically written for the BLACK Edition.

Joseph Quagraine: The White Edition was released at the end of 2013, and at the time I already knew that I would be able to develop it into an amazing car, I could tell it had potential. The thing was, that I needed more time to figure out the geometry, and a few other things with the design. Continue reading here.

JQ on THE Dirt’s track

Finland’s most famous export (after Kimi) has been busy on the keyboard during and after last weekend’s Dirt Nitro Challenge, most recently sharing his thoughts on a track some top pros called the hardest they’ve raced on.

There was a lot of crying and complaining about the track at DNC. A lot of tears were shed, a lot of feelings were hurt, a tremendous amount of arms were smashed, believe me.

I have given the organisers a hard time for the fact that they forgot to organise. I still haven’t seen results from the race. I probably never will. But The Dirt crew have one thing going for them. The track.

I feel like there were a few years where Joey got a bit lazy with the track. You arrived and thought, “that’s it, really?”. However, the last couple of years, the tracks have been really good, and specially this one.
