Event Date(s): February 24, 2017 to February 26, 2017


Team Associated completed a clean sweep of the 1:10 electric offroad 2017 South Australian titles, winning 7 out of 7 classes at the debut outdoor race for the new B64D 4WD!

Held at the Adelaide RC Raceway, it was the first SA titles in 17 years and over 140 entries were received from all around Australia. The club had prepared a challenging dirt track with many jumps and worked hard to prepare it through the weekend. The surface grooved up but had a narrow line and some bumps, making setup a challenge and Mother Nature cooperated with warm weather and sunshine.

2WD Mod
Ray Munday (B6D with Reedy power) took TQ from Josh Pain (B6D) and Matt Kellett (B6D with Reedy electronics). In the finals, Pain led Munday for a 1-2 for AE, while Matt Kellett was unlucky to miss the podium. 7 out of the 10 vehicles in the A final were B6Ds!

4WD Mod
Josh Pain took TQ and the win with his B64D, with Ray Munday finishing second with his B64D buggy with Reedy power for another AE 1-2. After only having the cars for a few days, the team worked hard on the setup in practice, with the results showing 7 out of the 10 A finalists driving the new B64D!

17.5
12-year-old Lachlan Donnelly was on fire, the Sydney Junior taking TQ and first in both 2WD 17.5 (B6D) and 4WD 17.5 (B64D) for his first state titles! In 4WD he won all four qualifiers and the first two finals, his B64D was undefeated all day. Kai Jaeger made the trek from Perth and also made the podium in both classes with his AE B6D and B64D buggies.

Truck Mod
This was a battle between AE Australia teammates Glen Bonetti and Matt Kellett. Bonetti took TQ and the win with his T5M from Kellett, while Daniel Kies took third for an AE podium sweep.

SCT
Matt Kellett and Mark Rogers (both driving SC5Ms with Reedy electronics) dominated this class all day, with Kellett taking the TQ and win after some intense racing!

Junior 17.5 (Under 16 2WD)
The AE domination continued! Kye Drust from Mildura took TQ and the win with his B6D from the event's fastest female, Jess May (B5M).
