On Sunday March 13, 2016 I attended a local scale competition. With partly sunny skies with high 80 degree weather made it a perfect day on the Island of Oahu, Hawaii for another Hawaii Scale Adventure.
Wow, this Indoor Season has come to an end!!! Can’t believe its over already!!!
I ran Stadium Truck and 2WD Mod Buggy for the Winter Points 8 Race Series at Bumps & Jumps! Track is a medium to high traction clay. I finished 2nd out of 21 in Stadium Truck and 20th out of 106 in 2WD Mod Buggy. The racing was stacked all 8 Points Races!!! There was an average of 120 Entries per round topping off the highest weekend at 160+.
This past weekend the Punta Del Este Grand Prix was held at Tico-Tico Raceway in Uruguay.
The event host many drivers from Uruguay, Argentina, as well as Adam Drake from USA. The Tico-Tico facility is simply amazing! The Qualifying on Saturday consisted of three rounds (12 minutes per qualifier), using your best two out of three qualifiers. Adam Drake was the top qualifier in Nitro Buggy and Nitro Truck.
The finals were on Sunday. The track crew did a great job to get the track in shape after a lot of rain on Saturday night and Sunday morning. Nitro Buggy ran a 60-minute final and Nitro Truck ran a 45-minute final.
Went to the Early Child Hood and Family School yesterday (pre-K school) at the request of a teacher that saw me there last week giving a RC/Police presentation. I have 2 more set up for next week at this school!
It was a chilly 36 degrees here yesterday, but the kids did not care and were very excited to drive the PRO-2 SC Truck.
Again thank you and Pro-Line for supporting me and the Quincy Police Department with our Police RC COPSTOP youth program.
The International Bütschwil GP race was in Switzerland. BC Hornets shows a good event with over 100 drivers from Swiss Germany Austria Italy England and more. The track was in a halle of slippery dasty dirt.
Want to meet Rich from The RCNetwork?? I’ll be at the Pro-Line Booth at RCX 2016 on Saturday, March 12th from 1pm-4pm. Stop by, say Hi and check out the PRO-MT and SpawnZilla!
After about 2 solid hours of building I have completed the chassis of the PRO-MT from Pro-Line Racing. Super easy build and Pro-Line already assembled all the tough stuff. Now, it’s on to installing the electrics and painting the body! Read the rest of this entry »
This past weekend we traveled to Leisure Hours Raceway in Joliet, Illinois to attend the Chitown Shootout, I ran both the Mod 2WD and Mod 4WD Buggy Classes. The facility was top notch and the people were very welcoming and friendly, there are some very fast local racers in that area. The track layout was high speed with a really cool step up that was very challenging.
Wednesday there was a bit of practice and had club racing that evening, I decided to not run the club race because there was practice all day Thursday as well. I was able to get my cars setup the way I wanted them and get tires broke in.
