Welcome to the RAE Team - Alex Benefield

Alex BenefieldAB Funny car

We are excited to have Alex join the TEAM! He will be testing and racing the new RAE 3000DL prototype Funny Car chassis. We look forward to working with Alex to obtain data and gain knowledge on the new chassis that will allow us to refine it until it is ready for mass-production. Alex has been the top Electric Funny Car racer in IMDRA competition for the last few years and has reset all the records. His experience, knowledge, and tuning ability will provide us with valuable information. And here is a little bit about Alex…..

Alex started racing in 2010. Like most racers just starting out he couldn't get down the track consistently, and when he did it was not very fast. However after many long days in the Florida sun Alex took advantage of his perfect tropical weather and tested year around. Alex tested day and night making sure that he knew every thing that he could about the RC drag racing hobby. His hard work paid off and Alex has set new World records on both ends of the elapse time for the Top Fuel Funny Car class four times. (Current records Et.124.2 Mph 109.9). He is four for four in wins at the IMDRA WORLDS he has attended in the last five years. He is always willing to help out when and where he can. Alex would go far and near to race just because he loves this hobby so much. You'll not find a fiercer, or nicer competitor than Alex. Alex has the mind set that he can go to any R/C Drag track in the country and set a record and win…..and soon in a RAE chassis!

7-15-2016 -

New - RAE 3000DL Prototype. This is our first version of a drive line chassis that will be tested and undergo continued development. We will not release it for sale until we are satisfied with a final version that meets our, and the racers expected performance. The final version may not even look like this prototype, but some of the unique features will remain like the ability to adjust ride height by moving the cross plates and axle carriers up or down, the ability to have a solid chassis, or allow to adjust for some flex if needed for various smooth, bumpy and non prepped track surfaces, and finally the ability to take the entire rear aluminum pod off in one piece and mount it to a Pro Stock, Pro Mod, Funny Car or Dragster graphite chassis keeping everything intact. We have a group of established racers, as well as a current record holder that will help us with testing allowing us to gather data and bring the best product we can to the market.

Thanks,
Roy and Tony

6-13-2016 - Congrats to Todd A Soltero and the California Drag Team for a great showing at the Texas RCDRL race this past weekend with RAE cars!

Todd "Had a great weekend of drag racing. Top qualifier in 1s Pro Stock and set the track record. My other teammates Aaron Ristor and Eric Filkins took 1&2. It was a great experience and met a bunch of great people. And to top it off the California team took home the team trophy. So great job to all my teammates see you next weekend".

For Pro Stock class we had three RAE 1600 cars. Mike Smith with his RAE car was running 1.87 @ 69 to 70 mph. The other RAE 1600 Pro Stock I built for Ron went 1.81 @69mph. My 1600 ran 1.77 @74.5 all day it was like a bracket car the only thing was my 6 foot times were getting faster.

9-5-2013 - RAE 1300 Pro Stock Prototype. I thought I would share a Pro Stock prototype car that I have wanted to build for a few years, and finally took about 4 months this year and built it. Most of the features are not new, but are unique to an RC drag car. With the current electric Pro Stock class the performance has really reached a point that demands a short prayer before you pull the trigger. These cars are now going 95 to almost 100 MPH in 1.3 seconds! What makes this an amazing feat is that the car has an 11 inch wheelbase and weighs 36 ounces compared to the 30 inch wheelbase RC Top Fuel Dragsters! The Pro Stock cars can easily become airplanes at the top end of the track and really do not fly very well! So I thought if there was a way to use the high speed these cars are going and reduce drag, and eliminate lift while providing chassis down force it would really help these cars out.


1300c 1300d 1300e

I created a chassis design that is built for the body versus the other way around. I built a framework that allows the bottom of the chassis to be sealed on the bottom as well as to the sides of the body. The chassis has ground effects tunnels, rear diffuser, and front air dam splitter. The body used was an RAE Turbo Cam Pro Stock body that is very aerodynamic in itself, and was attached to the chassis via front, rear and side mounts. NO REAR SPOILER/WING was used in testing...that was the point, let the ground effects create down force versus the body (which creates drag).

1300f 1300h 1300g

Other chassis design features include a duel plane chassis that has built in upper and lower A Arms which allow the kingpin to be retained without an axle, or clamp blocks, or other means. The chassis also has battery retaining brackets that can slide front and back on the top deck and easily tightens to hold the LiPo battery where you want it. The rear end of the chassis contains the diffuser framework as well as a wheelie bar system that allow multiple adjustments like angle, length, and movement.
1300i 1300j 1300m

The car was tested at the Chicago Lynwood IMDRA National race in August and I am happy to say that it worked well, was stable without the use of a rear wing or spoiler, and stayed "sucked" to the ground even when it got out of the groove. The performance was great and within range of the record times. For a first time out I was very happy with the car and design and know it can be improved upon. Roy

8-25-2013 - RAE Drivers Craig Stern, Tony Rudis and Roy Anderson are successful at the Lynwood IMDRA Midwest National RC Drag Race - In Pro Stock Carlos Zayas from P.R. layed down a 1.41et. and broke into the 1.3's in practice but in the final it was Craig Stern driving an RAE 800 Pro Stock with a HUGE holeshot win taking the victory with a 1.52 @ 93 MPH to Carlos' 1.42et. Roy Anderson and Tony Rudis where consistently fast with mid to low 1.4 runs in Pro Stock. Roy won the Comp 2.0 class with consistent 2.06 passes, and had a personal best 1.45 @ 93.3MPH in the Pro Stock Class with a new WILD prototype Pro Stock Car (more on that later). Tony had a personal best 1.421 and 1.430 at the event with an RAE 1100 Pro Stock chassis. Craig was also top qualifier in Bracket and won the B side in a RAE Funny Car. All RAE drivers were using RAE chassis, Tekin RS Pro speed controls, Thunder Power, Trinity and POD LiPO batteries, and RAE bodies.

10-4-2012 - Greg Bentley and Tony Rudis are the class of the IMDRA Pro Stock field at the Worlds Finals in Chesapeake Virginia. Both drivers were running RAE 700 and 800 PS chassis. Both were under the current 1.49 E.T. national record during the weekend. Rain prevented the final showdown between both of these drivers as they advanced to the final round from a large field of PS cars. However, a new record was set by Bentley running a 1.449 E.T. at 93.3MPH in the second round backed up by an insane run of 1.416 E.T. at 98.8MPH in qualifying! Just think.... a Pro Stock 11 inch wheelbase car with a 540 size sensored brushless motor and a 2 cell 7.4 volt LiPo battery almost going 1.3 seconds and 100 MPH in 132 feet !

10-1-2011 - RAE V3 Prototype Dirt Oval Car - This unique chassis is based on input from RAE oval drivers Anderson, Klein and Stern the past two years. It is a dual plane style with adjustable flex points that allow the ability to tune the car by changing standoff location points. Also, multiple top deck plates with different designs allow changes to the chassis handling. Upper decks have built in single or dual fan mounts to keep the motor cooler. Direct drive unit places the motor to the left corner and the battery location can be easily moved side to side. The chassis currently uses Custom Works suspension parts which are easy to obtain. The initial tests have shown the car to be very stable, adjustable and quick on corner exit.

Following the line of Hugger Dirt Oval kits that began in 1993, R.A.E. has designed the latest version....the H6. The conversion kit is based on the Associated B3 transmission and rear suspension. The chassis features a new footprint and weight distribution along with new suspension geometry, and it is made from 3mm carbon fiber weave / graphite material. The front bulkheads, suspension mounts, transmission mount, rear cradle, and front a arms are all machined from 6061 aluminum and then anodized. " The car is very smooth into and through the corners and stable on exit. We had two versions of the earlier Huggers cars there to serve as a baseline and the H6 was the best handling car there, perhaps the best I have ever driven. You can put it anywhere on the track!" ....Roy Anderson. The dimensions of the car are 11.0 " wheelbase with 8.750" front and rear track width with Custom Works rims mounted. Great Results first time out! The H6 finished 3rd in the EDM A main at the Midwest Nationals February 8, 2009 at Teas Hobby and Raceway! Congratulations to driver Gary Peacock and his fine effort. Gary finished in third place in the Saturday night Shootout to put him 3rd on the staring grid for the A main on Sunday. He drove a great race and finished 3rd. Mark Corns from Indiana was the winner.
