In my third attempt, I reach my goal of traveling 4-miles with the modified Traxxas Summit. I talk about my reasons including if the Summit is as good as the Axial SCX10 and Wraith, to see if the Castle Sidewinder 8th can go the distance, and why I won’t be buying Hot Racing steel drive-shafts ever again, because there is a design flaw. Tires are Pro-Line Trencher Xs on Desperado Wheels

Reverting Back

Some days are tough. I’ve been working so hard on my Doctoral dissertation on how Thermonuclear Fusion effects my gas mileage during the winter that I have forgotten at times to have a little fun. Luckily for me Mike Rydwell at Exotek stepped in and gave me another purpose in life. Adding some bling and much needed weight to the back half of my well documented B5m.

03/24/15 El Cajon, CA– Black Rhino/ RacerX Motorsports sponsored athlete Buddy Blacksmith raced his Pro-Line PRO-2 SC Truck Friday night, March 20th at Motor Head RC in San Jacinto, CA.

In qualifying, Buddy was 2nd in heat 1 and was leading in heat 2 when the PRO-2 lost a Wheel. In the Main, the PRO-2 started in second and after things got ironed out he was leading by lap 2. About 8 laps in, he over-drove the corner and was passed by Brian Mitchell leaving him in second for about 4 laps. Mitchell bobbled and Buddy went for the lead and checked out crossing the checkered flag for the win! Buddy used Pro-Line M4 Electron tires with F-11 wheels.

Buddy fabricated a new carbon fiber chassis for the Pro-Line PRO-2.
“The new custom Pro-Line PRO-2 was awesome in its debut” Buddy stated.

“I can’t thank my sponsors enough for supporting my race program; Pro-Line, Venom, Atomik Team Associated, Walden Designs, Cryo Heat, Black Rhino and Rigid Industries.”

Pro-Line Father and Son drivers, Landen Lewis and Brian Lewis each brought home a victory at the 2nd Round of Florida Off-Road Series! This past weekend, Strickland Daytona Off-Road RC Park in Daytona Beach was the home for the 2nd round where drivers from all the state of Florida would collide.

Brian Lewis was able to take TQ in E-Buggy but made a few mistakes in the 6-minute main and Tony Rivas was able to take advantage and pull out the win with Brian coming in 2nd Place.

In Nitro Buggy, it was a Roller Coaster event for Brian. With the park not allowing any practice the day before, Brian was never able to get any practice in so his first laps were going to be in qualifying. But on the first warm-up lap, the clutch bell came off. After taking it apart, it was found that the screw holding the bell on broke in the crank shaft. With no parts or back-up engine, Brian thought his day was over until Michael Greono, a local who happens to run Kyosho provided an engine to run 15-minutes before the B-Main started. Not having any laps on the day, he would be starting dead last (10th) in the B-Main. After putting in the loaner engine and doing a quick tune, Brian was able to go out and win the B-Main.

In the 30-minute A-main race, Brian was able to move up to 2nd pretty early and held that position until the leader had a shock issue and Brian was able to take the lead and bring home the win. Brian used Pro-Line M3 Lockdowns in both the B and A-Main which was a total of 45-minutes and had traction throughout.

This past weekend I attended the Tekin Supercross Showdown at R/C Excitement in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. Such a great place to be. Fully stocked shop of Pro-Line gear and all your RC needs.

We had 20 entries of great racing. I ran 4 classes was able to put all 4 in the A-Mains. I was able to TQ Stock Buggy as well as Stock SC with taking first in both classes. I also QF 2nd in Mod SC and finished 2nd.

My last class was 4WD SC I QF 9th and finished 5th. I must say that M4 IONs were the Hot Tire for Short Course. I ran M4 Electrons 2.4” in the Rear and 2.2″ Front on my Buggy what a outstanding Tire.

Thank you Pro-Line for all the support!

RC-Patrol-thesketchboxproject_2

Hello everyone this is DaveM from RC Patrol and I would like to share an upcoming build with you guys. This is the body I finished for the Spring Deadbolt revamping labeled, The Sketch Box. I am creating this new guise for the spring crawling season and I thought this would be different, 1992 Jeep Cherokee Body from Pro-Line Racing with hand painted doodles. I am on the hood with the beard..lol
I will be updating throughout the next few days of the progress of the change-over and providing a nice blog post when complete. I am changing Tires, Wheels, Shocks, and Bumpers as well as adding some cool scale items to the roof rack. Should be fun and look cool on the trail.
This is a sneak peak of the finished Body.

I just got finished three out-of-state races in a row so I have been traveling a lot and gaining some great experience in regional races.

This past weekend I was in Myrtle Beach, SC for the 1st Annual Palmetto Classic race. It was a fairly large event with 170 entries and featured 4 heats and double A-Mains so it was a lot of fun. I finished 3rd in the 4WD SCT division which was a nice way to end the weekend.

I made the A-Main with my PRO-2 SC and finished 9th so not bad since it was a very stacked class with racers like Max Flurer etc.

Thanks again Pro-Line
