On September 20th, I attended the ROAR Virginia State Champs at the Tiltyard in VA.

The race drew in around 100 entries across 5 classes. I ran Buggy, Truggy and E-Buggy and was able to TQ Truggy, qualify 6th in Buggy and 3rd in E-Buggy.

As the Mains kicked off the grip came up and it worked to my advantage. I was able to take the win in Truggy, 2nd in Buggy and 3rd in E-Buggy.

Pro-Line Blockades in M3 helped me podium in all three classes.

Thanks to Pro-Line for their support and quality products.

This past weekend I attended the 6th and final round of Colorado’s North Vs. South Series. Three rounds were held at MHOR R/C Raceway and three rounds including the final was held at Rocky Mountain R/C Raceway!

17.5 Buggy – 1st Place


I didn’t have to run 17.5 Buggy in the last race as I was able to lock up the overall championship in the first 4 rounds with 3 wins and 4 TQ’s. My AE B5 was on rails all series! I used the Phantom line of bodies, trifecta wings, and the combo of Transistors in the front with Suburbs in the rear (MC Compound at MHOR / M4 at RMRCR)

Mod 2wd Buggy – 2nd Place


In Mod 2wd  it came down to the last race in the series between myself and Denver’s Lenard Munoz, I knew I needed to finish 2 positions ahead of him and didn’t quite get it done, I took home four 2nd place finishes and a TQ for the series, and that was good enough for second overall. My AE B5m was on pace all series! I used the Phantom line of bodies, trifecta wings, and the combo of Transistors in the front with Suburbs in the rear (MC Compound at MHOR / M4 at RMRCR)

At the NorthEast Showdown at LCRC on 9/27/14 and had a great time, close to 200 entries and lots of competition. I ran only nitro this weekend to see if it would help me with throttle control and I think it definitely made a difference.


I finished 3rd in Nitro Truggy A and after a rough day chasing set up and the ever changing track conditions.

I only made the Nitro Buggy C-Main and unfortunately the LCRC loop started having issues and didn’t count my laps, my pit guy said he was confident I was at least 4th if not higher but didn’t care to argue it as it was only the C-main.

In Truggy I qualified top of B-Main, missing the A by just a second but had a great run and lead the entire 15-minutes of the B to bump to the A which was actually a blessing because it gave me good practice for the A and gave me a good idea what Tires to run as the lower temps changed the traction dramatically from qualifiers.

After a late night snack and coffee run, I lined up for the Truggy A with my M3 Pro-Line Hole Shots and Pro-Line Trifecta Wing and honestly was just happy to be in it considering the competition but I settled in and started working my way thru the group. Unfortunately once again the loop had issues and I went from 4th to 8th on the computer 10-minutes in but decided to just keep cool and keep going and go as fast as I could and see where the dust settled at the end. I was still 8th according to the computer at finish and I was about to leave but was told LCRC was reviewing the Truggy Main and as it turns out I took 3rd, unfortunately the guy who thought he got third took my trophy so I got a replacement trophy and since they couldn’t go back and correct it in the computer, I only have the manually corrected finishing results but better than nothing!

Thanks to my buddy Justin for pitting and marshaling for me all day too, certainly freed me up to focus on my set-ups.

Fastlane RC Raceway

ROAR Region 8 Regionals

9/19 – 9/21

I made the trip to Fastlane Raceway for the ROAR Region 8 1/10th Championships. This race was unquie because the race was held on their 1/8 outdoor track. I competed in Mod 2wd, Mod 4wd, and 4wd SC. All three of my cars were dialed using a variety of Pro-Line tires throughout the changing conditions over the weekend.

For practice the track was still green with moisture and a little fluff. I used M3 Holeshots for all my cars. As the track grooved up for qualifying, I switched to Subrurbs and Electrons in X2, M3, and M4 for all the changing track temps in the hot afternoon to the cool nights.

In 2wd, I had some motor issues throughout qualifying, so I ended up in the middle of the B. In 4wd, I lost the tie breaker (less than 1 sec) for the last spot in the A. So both buggies could have gone better, but the cars were great all weekend.

Now on to 4wd SC. In qualifying I was able to TQ 2 of 4 rounds using a combo of M3 Holeshots, X2 and M4 Suburbs. With my qualifying I was able to lock down TQ. For Sunday’s triple A’s the track started to break up with a fine layer of dust on the groove. I chose M3 Holeshots for my main day and was able to take the overall win by winning A1 and A2. My Holeshots and Flo-tek Raptor F150 were on rails all weekend and it showed.

Overall it was a great race weekend. Both my cars worked great, and my Pro-Line tires never let me down. I would like to say thanks to all my sponsors for the 2014 season, Pro-Line, Byrons Fuel, Castle Creations, Airtronics, Xray, Rcamerica, Hudy, Lutz R/C, Boom R/C,  and a special thanks to Riggs designs for the awesome paint work.

So let’s start off with the biggest race of the season this was the KONE finals and the top three spots were separated by only three points, so the championship was up for grabs. I rebuilt my Hot Bodies D812 and mounted up some new M3 Blockade Tires, checked my Reds Racing R5 team and put a new plug and clutch on it during the week to get ready for this race. I showed up on Saturday to run a few laps before heading to the owners Lester house to get ready for a nice dinner with a bunch of other fellow racers. Sunday morning I got to the track early to see that the rain the night before had left a lot of puddles on the track so the track owner and track crew did a fantastic job getting everything up and running and only cost us about an hour or two of delay.

The weekend was our annual Super Cross race at my home track (RC Madness) and this is pretty much always my last race of the year since I start to get my carpet on road cars ready for the IIC race in Las Vegas.


My car was good but I was just over driving the first round to give me TQ but it was not a time I knew would stick.

For the second round I had a ton of mistakes and went from TQ down to fourth. With that happening I looked at my car, made some changes to give me more traction and make it easier to drive. The first thing I did was to go from Blockade Tires to HoleShot Tires then went from a BullDog body to the Type-R. These were the changes I needed to make my car a lot better. Right off the start I made a inside pass on third and second then TQ made a mistake over the double and I jumped over him to take the lead and stay in that spot for the rest of the race taking down the win and ending my nitro season on a great note!

I would like to thank everyone that has helped me this year and I hope to continue with them for year to come:
