Just got back from the first leg of the Inaugural Triple Crown RC Challenge at Club RC in Houston. The series is between Club RC in Houston, Texas, T&T Speedway in Shreveport, Louisiana and 405 Raceway in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Racing was close on the high grip track, I had to bump from the B-Main in 2wd Modified Buggy after a dismal qualifying day. Ended up 5th overall in the A-Main, which is not bad considering my starting spot.
I used Primes in MC Compound Front and Rear on 2.4 Wheels and the Predator Body on my B5M.

Past weekend we had our race 2 of Colorado Series in at Hobbytown USA Track in Longmont, CO. Joey “TheDirt” came out and build us beautiful track that was flowing and fast for this event.
Saturday morning we had a bit of rain that watered the track perfectly and qualifying began of to a good start. I ran Pro-Line Hole Shots X3s on the Buggy for all three qualifiers and after qual points were added I locked in the 4th spot on the grid for the main. In Truggy qualifying, I used Pro-Line X3 Suppressors and set my Truggy a little softer on the suspension due to smooth surface on the track. After 3 rounds of qualifying I was able to lock in 2nd spot on the grid just .400 of a second short of TQ. In the Truggy Main I made few mistakes and got caught up in some traffic in the end to finish in 2nd spot on podium and get the fastest lap time in the race. Read the rest of this entry »

Last weekend there was the Racingarden Trophy 1:8 Nitro and E-Buggy.
During the morning’s qualifications we decided for the Fugitive X3 and for the half part our choose was quite right.
In the afternoon I choose to use the Blockade X3 in both machines that allowed me to run very fast and constant and at the end to gain in the two classes the podium – the 1st place in F1 with TLR 4.0 Nitro and the 3rd place with the TLR 4.0 E-Buggy.

Another eventful day racing out at Auburn Performance Raceway at The Hammer in the Foothills race #5. Got to the track early for some practice, I would be racing my Pro-Line Racing Yeti, 1.9 RC Fabworks Mini Beast and my 2.2 RC Fabworks beast.
From the previous days rain the track was super wet and I had to test out the Pro-Line Baja T/A KR2’s on the Yeti. These things were off the hook sticky! At one point it felt like I was driving it on a road course, these Tires on a wet track were killer!! Read the rest of this entry »
After spending 20-hours driving to and from races the past two weekends we decided to put in 8 more to attend the first round of the Monsters of the MidWest Series back at the Ohio RC Factory. I was able to secure the TQ in Nitro Buggy and had to settle for second with my E-Buggy, missing it by .06 of a second. E-Buggy Main was up first and I was able to put in a perfect 10-minute run to finish on top with second and third places one second back combined. Nitro Buggy was up next and I was able to lead the 30-minute Main wire to wire.
The 8ight 4.0 Buggies worked flawlessly all day on the Pro-Line Electron Tires and the Triton L3 ran like a top. I couldn’t be happier with the Bones Brew Fuels. My Spektrum DX4R radio and servos let me drive with confidence.
Thanks all for the continued support
The third round of Czech Open series took place last weekend in Mlada Boleslav. Home club prepared pretty challenging – bumpy & tight track. On Friday we had, as usual, free practice where we quickly found good setup for my XB8.
In qualifications my FX powered XB8 on P-L X3 Blockade worked great and took TQ in Q1&Q2 which secured me the overall TQ. In the last qualification I came super unlucky with traffic and also did few mistakes on my own. Read the rest of this entry »
Finally was able to race again after being busy for the last few weeks! Saturday we made the freezing drive to Clark RC Park in Reeseville, WI where we arrived to a cold wet Track, however the track crew was on top of it!
We were able to run three rounds of quals and Mains even with the few snow flurries. I had some good battles with Team Associated factory driver Cole Tollard in qualifying but couldn’t quite get it done. In the Main I had the lead early for a few laps but after a mistake I had to come back through and by then Cole was too far to catch, so I ended up with a strong second!
My Tekno NB48.3 was awesome all day with my Pro-Line Hole Shot Tires gripping into the tough surface! Read the rest of this entry »
