Beau Hudspeth ❯❯ Beaverton, OR
XRAY T2 ’007 EU
This exceptional photograph of
Beau’s XRAY T2 touring car, taken at
Alpenrose Dairy quarter midget track,
made it a shoo-in for Readers’ Rides.
The ProtoForm Mazda Speed 6-shell
looks great with a simple yet very effec-
tive paint job. The guts that provide the
go for this tourer include a Novak 10. 5
brushless motor and GTB speed
control, KO Propo receiver, Airtronics
94358Z high-speed/high-torque steering
servo and a 4800mAh LiPo battery pack
Adam De Witt ❯❯ Jackson, TN
Traxxas Jato 3. 3
Adam gets the credit for being the very first person to
send in a Readers’ Ride featuring one of Dale
Earnhardt Jr.’s new paint jobs for this year’s NASCAR
season. The custom-painted Pro-Line Crowd Pleazer
2.0 looks great sitting on the Jato 3. 3 chassis that
has been upgraded with several of RPM’s super
durable suspension and chassis parts.
READER’S Kevin Jowett ❯❯ Chilliwack, BC,
OF THE MONTH HPI Wheely King Project “Unglewd” started life as a
Wheely King and all that’s left is the transmission and
the axles. The chassis is based on Jowetts Kustom RC
16 ft. 5 in. crawler frame rails and the roll cage was
fabricated by Kevin out of 3⁄ 16 steel tube and built to fit
inside the HPI Ford Bronco body.
Axial Rockster beadlock wheels
squeeze a set of Axial Rock Lizards
tires that are powered by a Novak
Rooster Crawler speed control
and a 55-turn Integy lathe motor.
Maximizer diff lockers keep all four
wheel turning, and extras that add
to its scale appearance are the
one-off decals, Wild Willy driver
figure, winch, nitro us bottle and fuel cell.
