The CRCRC Midwest Nitro Championships were held in Columbus, Ohio on January 22nd through 25th 2009. New TRF driver, Ryan Lutz, debuted his driving skills with the 801xt. Lutz finished 4th overall with the TRF 801xt. After the race, Ryan commented, “All in all I think it was a successful weekend. I had many people come over to me to check out the truck.” Over the course of the four days, Lutz proved the 801xt is the start of Tamiya’s presence in the 1/8 Nitro Off-road world.
