Maifield & JC Win 1:8 Pro Buggy at CRCRC
Ryan Maifield and JConcepts took their first big win of 2011 in the 1:8 Pro Buggy class at the annual CRCRC Winter Midwest Championships in Ohio. Ryan took TQ and then went on to win the 45-minute A final against some the World’s best drivers including Jesse Robbers, reigning IFMAR World Champion Cody King and Billy Easton. JConcepts Hybrids in green compound along with the Punisher body were fitted to the Associated RC8B for the fast, technical CRCRC layout and was joined in the final by JR Mitch who finished fifth.
In the truggy class, Ryan had to settle for second place, 3.8 seconds behind eventual winner Jesse Robbers who drove a fantastic race. Pit strategy and traffic became a factor as Ryan battled hard for the entire 45-minutes with his RC8T-CE truck that was also equipped with a Punisher body and JConcepts Sevens tyres. JR Mitch and CJ Weaver also joined Maifield in on the action in the truggy class running the JConcepts Punisher combination.
