Round 7 of the JBRL Series would take place at the huge SDRC Raceway facility in San Diego.  It’s been 2 years since I have been here and was looking forward to the weekend.  I arrived Friday to make sure I got a full days practice session in to be prepared for race day.  The track layout was really fast and flowing making for some incredibly close racing all weekend.

I had great qualifying runs in all my classes, my 4wd Buggy especially.  My Team Associated B44.2 was dialed in and hooked up with my Pro-Line Electrons up front and VTR Suburbs in the rear.  In the 2nd qualifier I pulled together a win in my heat and put my Venom/ Tekin Powered, Coyote Hobbies B44.2 in 3rd qualifying position for the main event.  In the Main I make 1 of my own mistakes that put me in the back of the field but I kept it together and made it back up front.  Everyone was making mistakes and I kept getting into the crashed cars as the racing was so close the entire time.  In the end I would pull off a 3rd place podium in 4wd Buggy.

Pro-Line-California-Dreamin-1

If you have been reading BigSquidRC for any length of time, you know we are big fans of Pro-Line Racing. Their products are top notch, just like the people behind them. Yesterday we were once again lucky enough to visit the P-L crew and learn more about what it takes to get all their uber products to market. During our Pro-Line visit we were also able to get a closer look at the new PROTOform F1 bodies, as well as their new Interco TSL SX Super Swamper XLs mounted up on an Axial Yeti. Both looked incredible and should be hitting the market in the very near future.

We would like to say an extra special “Thank You!” to Todd, Jessica, Gerardo, Matt, Tim, and all the good folks over at Pro-Line for once again letting us invade their home office. If you haven’t visited the Pro-Line Website lately, click Right Here to check out all their fine products.

Interco TSL SX Super Swamper XL 2.2″
G8 Rock Terrain Truck Tires
for Front or Rear 2.2″ Crawler
#10107-14

Pro-Line is proud to announce the 2.2” TSL SX Super Swamper XL in the legendary G8 compound. With “almost scale” not being acceptable and access to Interco’s design data, Pro-Line’s engineering staff has reproduced the Super Swamper in a scale configuration matched by none. The new 2.2” XL is perfect for scale crawlers that want maximum ground clearance and unmatched rock crawling performance.

Compared to the original Interco 2.2” Swamper tire (5.4″ in Height and 2.05 in Width), this new XL version is larger in diameter giving you the height you need to tackle any obstacles. It’s also wider than the best-selling original which gives you the optimum in handling, durability and longevity. The Super Swamper XL is a great All-Terrain tire that can handle dirt, gravel, mud, rocks and even the street – all while looking good doing it.

The XL 2.2” Super Swamper (5.8″ in height and 2.25″ in Width) is the new must have Rock Crawling tire! Get yours today!

Fugitive 1:8 Off-Road Buggy Tires
for 1:8 Buggy Front or Rear
9052-002 X2 (Medium)
9052-003 X3 (Soft)
9052-004 X4 (Super Soft)

This is a pair of Fugitive 1:8 Buggy Race Tires. Pro-Line is putting the competition on the Run with the all-new Fugitive race tire! The Fugitive was developed to be the longest lasting race tire ever produced while still being quick and agile. In the past, the prevailing knowledge for creating a new tire that lasted throughout the long A-Mains in extreme wear conditions was to design a big and tall tire tread that was spaced out. While this was effective for the day, the tall and stiff tread numbed out the handling and didn’t have the speed of the smaller pin race tires.

Pro-Line’s all-new Fugitive tires set the standard for wear and performance with a whole new design philosophy – small, tightly packed pins that can handle the abuse of being run on concrete. When combined with Pro-Line’s incredible X-Compounds, the Fugitive easily has the best performance to cost ratio of any Pro-Line tire making it perfect for many European style tracks.

Be the first one outrunning the competition with the Fugitive!

Pro-Line is making it easier than ever to use the Fugitive X-Material tires on your 1:8 Buggy by offering them pre-mounted on White Velocity Lightweight Dish wheels!

Pro-Line lives and breathes the philosophy of Racing To Bring You The Best and that is exactly what the all-new Lightweight Velocity 1:8 Buggy wheel represents. Pro-Line engineers worked tirelessly to create the lightest possible wheel without compromising strength to give your buggy the lowest rotating mass and the fastest acceleration ever achieved. The lighter wheel also has a slightly higher level of flex which results in more traction on loose track conditions. The Lightweight wheel is marked with Pro-Line’s latest P-L logo giving your buggy the best possible look that matches the performance.

A couple weeks back kicked off the AZRCR Championship Point Series at Fear Farm R/C Raceway, home of the Dirt Nitro Challenge.

From the second position on the starting grid, I was able to take the win in the 20-Minute Pro 1:8 Buggy class main event.

This past weekend Warehouse 3 in Phoenix, Arizona played host to Scotty Ernst’s Short Course Showdown series. With a small turnout the race was a nice relaxing event but still had some amazing races and great competition. I competed in the PRO-2 (2WD Short Course modified) division as well as the 2WD Modified Buggy division.

SCS Sunday Podium Pro 2 SCS Sunday Podium 2wd Mod

With the SCS format qualifying is heads up so every race was a battle for position as well as a battle with the clock to run a fast time.

In PRO-2 every heat was a close race with Brian Kinwald and I would hold TQ till round 3 when Brian would put in a perfect run to beat my time by 2-Seconds. In round 4 I was on pace to beat the time posted but with heads up qualifying, the battling for position would slow our pace down so I would end up qualifying second overall.

SCS22SCT2.0 SCS22SCT2.0track

In the main I would get out to a good start and was following Kinwald waiting for an opportunity to pass, unfortunately I would bobble a bit and let Spencer Rivkin by into the 2nd spot. At this point while I was in 3rd, 4th and I would tangle and I would end up at the back of the pack. I managed to pick my way through the field and get back up to 3rd. Kinwald and Rivkin then had a very large lead but with them battling each other, I was able to catch back up to them and at least make it a race but then caught a corner dot when trying to look for an inside pass on Rivkin and rolled it over and would have to settle for 3rd.

I ran Suburbs on the front in M4 and IONs in back also in M4 with the stock included inserts.

In 2WD Modified Buggy I was right on pace all weekend and even took the win in round 2 of qualifying with a time that then put me 2nd overall. In round 4 a few people managed to go faster and I would get pushed back to the 4th starting spot on the grid for the main.

SCS222.0track SCS222.0

In the main I stayed patient and managed to move up into 3rd within the first few laps then 2nd soon after that. I was able to keep the leader which at this point was Spencer Rivkin for most of the race and we both had a pretty decent gap on 3rd place. I began to make some minor mistakes trying to push to catch Rivkin and this allowed 3rd place Tommy Hinz to catch up. We battled for about the last 2 minutes of the race and on the last lap we would be side by side entering the sweeper before the finish line and would cross the line at nearly the same time but I would hold on for 2nd place.

I ran ION fronts in M4 with closed cell foam and Electron VTR rears in M4 with the included closed cell foam.

Thanks for all the help and support!!
