If you didn’t get to check out the Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals then you gotta see the video they put together from the event.
The event was held at Walton Raceway!
“Once again, thank you VERY much for working with us this year and we look forwards to working together for the years to come.”
Took home my first victory with the Pro-Line PRO-2 on a set of Pro-Line Blockade M3′s!!!
As the traction went away at Willowfarm Campground RC the PRO-2 got faster.
Nice warm-up race for the 13th Annual Race Against Cancer. Will have a stacked field there with a nice line-up of PRO-2′s.
The PRO-2 was super stable and super easy to handle. It drove like my Pro 4!!!

Tim Robertson took home the 4WD Short Course class win with a set of Blockades on his TLR Ten-SCTE 2.0

Event: Vintage Off-Road Nationals
Location: Wolcott Hobby, Waterbury, CT
Dates: September 6-7 2014
This past weekend I attended the Vintage Off-Road Nationals at Wolcott Hobby & Raceway in Waterbury CT. The Vintage Nationals is one of my favorite races that I look forward to every year as it’s always fun to race old school vehicles at a well run race with great people. Oh, and they have a huge raffle with lots of prizes.
The Wolcott Hobby crew put together a fresh layout for the event that was fun to race on while being vintage car friendly with no big air jumps. The fresh layout stayed wet all weekend which left a lot of racers struggling with the low bite.
There were about 80 entries total with racers coming in from all over the US, including multi-time world and national champion Brain Kinwald. I entered the 2WD Buggy class with my original RC10 Worlds car and the stadium truck class with my RC10T.
After 4 rounds I managed to qualify 3rd in stadium truck and 2nd in 2WD Buggy, right behind Brian Kinwald.
During the stadium truck A-Main I was able to take the lead about half way through the 8-minute Main and finish first.
In the 2WD Buggy Main I got tangled up with lap traffic and that dropped me from 2nd to 5th. I battled with the 4th place car until the last turn of the last lap where I was able to sneak inside and make a pass to finish 4th.
On my 2WD Buggy I used M4 2.2″ Electrons front and rear and on stadium truck I used M4 IONS front & rear.

Well here we go again. I didn’t think one weekend out of town was enough, so a friend and I went on a cruise down I-40 to Yukon, OK.
After a poor day of qualifying, I managed several A-Main finishes, including:
6th place finish in E-Buggy on M3 LockDowns
2nd place finish in Nitro Buggy on M4 LockDowns
2nd place finish in E-Truggy on M3 Hole Shots
4th place finish in 4×4 SC on M4 Blockades
I also used the Pre-Cut EVO body on the Short Course and P-L Wheels on all my vehicles.

Paul Medina and I both raced at the “Back to School” Trophy Race at Cruizin’ W/RC’s.
In 2WD Mod SC, Paul took the top spot running Blockades up front and Stunners on the rear in M4 and I came in 3rd running M4 Hole Shots.

The 2WD German Nationals where held last weekend in Gemünden, 1 hour away from Frankfurt.
The track was AstroTurf with extremely high grip when it was dry, but when it was wet it was very slippery. This made qualifying difficult as some rain showers mixed the field. Some drivers were lucky and had dry runs and some drove in the wet.
After qualifying, Pro-Line’s Jörn Neumann started 2nd for the triple 7-min A-Mains. Jörn could pass the 1st place driver quickly and checked out to secure the overall championship after 2 A-Mains.
Pro-Line equipment used:
8230-103 Wedge Squared
2736-02 Velocity Rear Wheels
2735-02 Velocity Front wheels
6250-17 Trifecta wing
6031-00 Pro-Bond Tire Glue
6077-00 12mm Clamping Hex Adapter
6185-01 1:10 Closed Cell Rear Inserts
So far for the second points race I have TQ’d 17.5 and qualified 3rd in PRO-2 SC and qualified 10th in Pro4.
At the end of the mains I received 2nd in 17.5 SC.
Had a battle the whole race but the motor started overheating on the last lap. Second place and I were a lap ahead luckily because the ESC shut off in safety mode halfway through the last lap.
In PRO-2 I made a quick motor swap to my Murfdogg 17.5 and went to race. I finished 6th, just not the correct gearing for it.
4WD I had a DNF from a screw breaking on the shock.
In the end it was a fun day!
The Pro-Line parts and MIP Ball Diff and CVDs held up till the end and helped so much for that TQ and amazing A-Main race.
Parts used: 2WD ProTrac Suspension Kit with the front hub adapters, PRO-2 Clamping Hexs on the rear and front. The Pro-Line Tazers hooked up and gave me the traction I needed. Had the front end dialed using the Pro-Line Snipers up front. Steering this truck had amazing speed coming into the corners and leaving the corner with the MIP Ball Diff and CVDs.
Couldn’t have done it with out my two sponsors! Thanks Pro-Line and MIP for the equipment and support!
The Pro-Line products used are; Pro-Line FLO-TEK Ford Raptor SVT body, Pro-Line Tazer tires M3, Pr0-Line Protrac kit 2WD, PRO-2 front bulkhead and bumper, PRO-2 hinge pins, PRO-2 front hub kit, rear clamping hexs, Pro-Line Closed Cell Foam, and Pro-Line 4mm tire nuts on all trucks.
Let’s go race!
