Team Associated RC100
After splitting with his business partner in 1972, Team Associated founder Roger Curtis convinced local gas station owner Gene Husting to go into business with him. By 1975, Gene finished the design of Team Associated’s second RC car, the RC100. It quickly rose to dominance, sweeping the first 5 places at the IFMAR World Championships in 1975, as well as taking the win at the Remotely Operated Auto Racer (ROAR) Nationals in 1976. In 1977 RC racer Butch Kroells took the IFMAR World Championship, with Gene Husting finishing 3rd, and Roger winning the C main, all with the Team Associated RC100.
