Futaba signs Ryan Maifield
When you talk about top drivers, there's one name that always appears at the top of the list...Ryan Maifield.
And when you compete at the top levels of racing, knowing your equipment is dependable gives you peace of mind. That confidence is a huge advantage anytime, and especially heading into the IFMAR 1:8 Off-Road World Championships later this year.
Futaba is pleased to announce that Team Associated's Ryan Maifield will be using the Futaba 4PKS system, Futaba brushless and high-voltage servos in all of his vehicles. It's already proven to be a winning combo. Ryan's first race with all-Futaba equipment was The Big One at LCRC Raceway (host of the ROAR 1:8 Off-Road Nationals), where he dominated the track and the competition.
Team Futaba is proud to welcome Ryan Maifield to the team and we look forward to many championships together.
UPDATE: As this announcement was being prepared, Ryan Maifield set off for Cullman, Alabama, on a mission to destroy the competition at the 2012 Alabama Manufacturer Shootout. Maifield laid down the TQ in each class, sending a clear message that he was the man to beat. And when the mains rolled around, it was Game Over! Two huge races in a row…two huge sweeps in a row. Could it be the radio? We like to think so!
