A personal look at the 1/8 IFMAR Worlds in Charlotte.
I arrived with Tim Thursday night, very late, so our first day at the track was Fri, after the mud had dried. Weather was great, it was actually cool first thing in the mornings Here are a few pictures from our personal camera, for more close ups and action shots also visit http://rcactionpics.com/.

Hanging out with Ryan
We brought out all the tires and let people touch them and see which tires Maifield was running. What a great debut for our new tires – a great addition to our existing lineup!
The JConcepts tent – we loved talking to our devoted fans and those who drove from various places to watch the race – not everyone gets to see the Worlds take place…. what a race!
These are just some of the people we talked to who stopped by our tent.
Here is a shot of our table set up with goodies on display
Everyone had a good view of the drivers stand
