Team Associated takes 9 places in the A MainJanuary 1, 1998
Event Name: ROAR Gas Off Road Nationals
Event Location: Freedom Park, Sterling Heights, MI
Team Associated's RC10GT Gas Trucks dominated the ROAR Nationals, taking nine places in the A Main. This very tough outdoor track was easily tamed by the Team's GT trucks.
Richard Saxton took Top Qualifier honors and then led the whole 45-minute main from start to finish to become the ROAR National Champion.
Richard used the new Paris Modified Dynamite .12 PD engine with Blue Thunder-Race Formula fuel in the first round of qualifying, and then switched to an OS MAX .12 for the Main Event.
The OS MAX .12 engine, with O'Donnell fuel and Pro-Line tires, was the overwhelming choice of these drivers.
