This past weekend Norcal Hobbies in San Jose California wrapped up the 5th Annual Top Gun Race. This race attracts top drivers from Northern California, all attempting to earn the title of “Top Gun” of their respective class. Along with bragging rights, top drivers in each class earns themselves an authentic Fighter Jet Helmet.
The program consisted of 4 rounds of qualifying and triple A-mains on Sunday. JConcepts Team Driver Daniel Brown was unable to attend the first day of qualifying and arrived early on Sunday to get the layout figured out and make sure his cars were dialed in. After an hour of practice Daniel’s cars were feeling good and he had the layout decently figured out. The track was built by Kevin Jelich and it certainly lived up to his reputation; perfectly timed jump sections and tons of flow. Traction was medium to high and had quite a bit of grip for such a new layout. Read more…

It’s no secret that major distributors/dealers of products often receive a heads up of new products coming out before the public is aware. With that being said, every once in awhile one of those new products is ‘leaked’ to the public before they are officially released by the manufacturer.
Today photos and details of an all-new AKA 1/10 buggy tire, known as the ‘Chain Link’, has been revealed in such manner. The Chain Link features a bi-level, interlocking tread pattern that creates support for the tire’s carcass and treads. This additional support leads to more consistent traction in the corners and is designed to provide great on-throttle stability. The Chain Link is designed to provide a well balance of forward drive and side bite, making this an ideal tire for hard packed or blue groove tracks, indoors and out. Set to be released in AKA’s championship winning Clay, Super Soft, and Soft compound as tires with Red EVO inserts, and the same as all AKA tires, are proudly designed and made in the USA.
