Round 3 of the RC Pro Series was held at 439 R/C Raceway in Belton, Texas. The track was very tight and the soil was known for breaking up and making an already difficult layout even more technical as the weekend went on. I spent qualifying getting used to the new Buggy and tuning it to my liking.

The standout of the weekend in the truck class was the local young 12 year old, Ethan Mackanick, from Shippensburg, PA putting on a show coming from the number seven starting position and after a couple of early mistakes battling from the back of the field to make his way up the ladder to the number three position on the podium behind his peer team drivers of Pettit and the race winner Adam Drake.
Had good times on Aug. 15th for the ROAR region #5 Off road champs at Summit RC Raceway in Fort Wayne , IN. Qualified 2nd in 17.5 Buggy and 2nd in Mod SC. Buggy A-Main had some bad luck while swapping positions. Still ended up 3rd as I set my fastest lap of the day and had fastest lap in that main while trying to catch up. SC had a good start and clean racing, but couldn’t keep up with first place finisher Adam Rayls. Was happy with 2nd as I also set my fastest lap of the day and in that Main as well.
Good day overall with good people. Thanks to Pro-Line Racing, Daniel Adams, Maclan Racing, Schelle Racing Innovations, Team Trinity Inc., Exotek Racing, Hobby & Recreation Products.
This ended up being a great weekend! I practiced Thursday afternoon until I got into an accident on a scooter, you can see the scares on my face in the attached picture. I had to miss Friday practice to recover from the scooter accident. Saturday morning I didn’t feel great but wanted to race, so I went to the track to try to compete. Read the rest of this entry »

Hello Everyone! I had the privilege of attending the Hot Rod Hobbies Shootout this year in Saugus Ca. I ended up entering myself into Pro 2 and Mod Truck. The Track was very smooth and free flowing and the traction was great initially. I had only one set of tires for my mod truck, which made things difficult for me.
My Pit spot was awesome! I got to see a lot of Top Drivers, I was close to the heat sheets and simply right in the middle of it all.
I Glued up some Pro-Line Electrons in the X2 Compound when the track was dry and they were hooked up. The traction was consistent and controllable and it kind of felt like cheating to me. I was able to get several runs on theses Tires with plenty of tread and grip left over. I absolutely fell in love with these Tires for blue groove conditions!Read the rest of this entry »
