Friday5 With Team Drivers Travis & Stevie Slover

In this edition of the Friday5 we talk to the JConcepts father & son race team out of Kansas, Travis & Stevie Slover!

1. When and how did you get started in RC?

In 2011. A group of friends had Traxxas Slashes that they “raced” on a back yard track. I bought a Losi Strike to race with them. Then we found out that people actually race these things at organized events. After a couple races, I quickly realized my truck was not competitive and bought a used Losi 22 from a local racer. I was hooked.

2. When you first got into RC racing, what pro driver did you look up to and why? Or maybe there was a local/regional driver that you followed?

The pro I’ve always looked up to is Jared Tebo. He’s an awesome guy and always makes time to talk or help at the track.

3. In your opinion, when heading to the track what is the JConcepts product that is a must have on race day and why?

My JC must have(s) when going to the track is my Finnisher car stands, tire glue, tire bands and my Dirt Racing Products tire brush.

4. With the COVID-19 virus closing many tracks temporarily in the US, how do you plan to quench your thirst for RC?

As of now our local track, Jake’s RC, is still open during the day for practice. Otherwise we plan to rely on basic maintenance, getting our 1/8 cars ready and watching videos of racing or any live racing if there’s anything going on.

5. Name one thing people might be surprised to know about you.

One thing people might be surprised to know about me? I’m VERY superstitious on race day!

1. When and how did you get started in RC?

I got started racing in 2012 after my dad started racing. I started with a Traxxas Slash in the novice class and quickly upgraded to a Team Associated SC10.

2. When you first got into RC racing, what pro driver did you look up to and why? Or maybe there was a local/regional driver that you followed?

Tom Rinderknecht. He’s a great ambassador for our sport and helps me out whenever we’re at the same race.

3. In your opinion, when heading to the track what is the JConcepts product that is a must have on race day and why?

My must haves on race day are my Aero Car Stands and my Dirt Racing Products tire brush.

4. With the COVID-19 virus closing many tracks temporarily in the US, how do you plan to quench your thirst for RC?

Watching videos of races and VRC.

5. Name one thing people might be surprised to know about you.

I started racing BMX when I was 3, up until I was 12. I also race hare scrambles and play baseball.
