Hupo Honigl splits from Team C


Austria’s RC favourite Hupo Honigl is set for a chassis change after announcing his departure from Team C having spent only a season with the outfit.

I would like to say thank you to Stephen Shih from Team C and Jürgen Laux from Absima for a wonderful and successful year and their great support. Although it was only a 1 year journey for me I made a lot of new friends there and had good fun. I was super happy with everything but now i have a new challenge and I´m more then motivated to start fresh again, stay tuned…

The return of stadium truck?

wow stadium trucks

In the early 2000′s, by far one of the most popular offroad racing classes in America was 1/10 scale 2wd stadium truck (both nitro and electric). As the year’s passed, the nitro stadium truck (aka “gas truck”) was the first to lose popularity as the all-new 1/8 truck (truggy) class was introduced. Shortly after, the electric stadium truck scene began to slowly disappear as well. Factory teams pulled their top drivers in the class, and put them in the fast-growing short course truck classes instead.

Before long, stadium truck all together was exctinct at many local, regional, and national level races across the country.

Many believed that with the introduction of truggy and short course, the days of stadium truck were simply distant memories.

As it turns out, those memories may not be so distant after all.

Blake Pickett wins East Coast Series

Blake Pickett reports after claiming the overal victory in expert buggy class at the East Coast Off-Road Series… On Friday morning my dad and I headed down to the Badlands RC Super-cross at Myrtle Beach SC, for the final round of the East Coast Off-Road Series. The Badlands is one of the premier off-road facilities on the East Coast USA. It always draws the region’s best sponsored and privateer drivers. All major brands were represented. Upon arrival, the drivers stand was already full of guys getting in their practice laps for Saturday’s program. The track was a well prepared and technical new layout, challenging as usual. My Team C T8T and my T8-V3 felt great, and so required very little tuning all weekend. After a couple of tire changes, I felt fast and comfortable.

Team C TM4 4WD Buggy – Photo

Following Team C’s CAD drawing of their forthcoming TM4 4WD buggy, they have finally released their first real image of the kit itself! Even though it does appear to be production prototype we can see that it features an aluminium main chassis with a carbon fibre upper deck which places the motor, ESC and LiPo packs towards the rear of the kit with the lighter steering servo and receiver located at the front. Unfortunately there is no word on a release date however we believe it will be making its first outing at the upcoming Worlds!

Team C TM4 4WD Buggy Teaser

Team C TM4 WD Buggy Teaser

Photos & Article: Area52.cc
Team C Racing today released a first teaser photo of their upcoming TM4 4WD 1/10th buggy. The vehicle makes use of design cues introduced with the TM2 2WD buggy, a rear mounted shorty LiPo battery pack sees the addition of the motor and speed controller on the left side of the chassis while the steering servo is located in the front together with the receiver. The somewhat “rear heavy” weight distribution is something one or the other aftermarket manufactures is playing around with at the moment as it promises improved driving and jumping characteristics and a more agile handling. Looking at the rendering and the colours of the different material it seems that the buggy is based on an aluminium chassis with alloy centre bulkhead and suspension mounts as well as carbon fibre shock towers and upper deck. Other features include big bore shock absorbers, and 14mm wheel hex adapters. Continue reading here.
