Here’s a look at how the Team Associated B44.3 build has gone so far. In this episode I cover Electronics installation, Shock installation, Body, Wheels and Tire selection and some supplement items used during the build.
Here’s some of the Pro-Line items I added to the build:
Steven Hartson and Ryan Cavalieri call Team Associated home with they’re proven race buggies. The B44.3 is the fourth rendition of the 1:10 scale 4WD winning platform and there’s a ton of improvement to the 2013 IFMAR chassis that Hartson drove to victory in Chico, CA. Three fluid filled/geared differentials, Aluminum chassis and Saddlepack/Shorty configuration are the main changes from the B44.2.
In this video you will see the “Poor Man’s Dually” build based on a video produced by +TheTank whom made inexpensive dually wheels for his RC. The dually is based on a Axial Racing SCX10 Honcho with a Pro-Line Racing Ford 250 Super Duty Body.
The Wheels and Tires are Axial Racing Walker Evans with Trepadors.
This is the first initial test run of the rig out at a local park. The wheels held up well and were very balanced. They did seem to provide a bit more track width in the back which helped grip over a few obstacles better then having the single Rear Wheel on each side.

The amazing Thunder Tiger MT4 G3 put through its paces at Hall Dale Quarry in Matlock. Using custom designed and built aluminum chassis brace and upgraded steering servo. Just found this amazing disused quarry filled with gravel piles and amazing terrain, awesome bashing spot.
We kick of the 2015 season at the 2015 Silver State held at the fabulous RC Tracks of Las Vegas Facility. In year past this race was held in Boulder City; which usually received mixed reviews at the best of times. What will this inaugural event at the new Venue be like? Will Ryan Maifield continue his winning ways after taking the Reedy Title as well as Nitro Buggy @ the Nitro Challenge? Or would phenom Kyle McBride, Champion from last year, take the win?
Narrated once again by RC News‘ Mike Garrison this “Come Dirve With Us” will not disappoint!

Round 2 of the 2015 JBRL Series would be held at my home track Coyote Hobbies Raceway. I missed the first round of the series due to a schedule conflict with my new Speedway Sprint Car Racing Series that I have been doing now also. I couldn’t miss a big race at my local track though. Dave and Mona always do a great job especially when a big race is coming.
The new layout was really smooth and fast this time especially with the track wet enough to run Pro-Line Primes all the way around. Everybody was hooked up all day on slicks and the lap times were fast and consistent!
