Nitro Challenge is in the books and I had a great time even though I wasn’t racing the big show which was the 8th program. I had some good times with friends and enjoyed helping them. I did get to have some fun on the 10th scale track and some success as well taking the TQ and Win in the Pro class of 2WD Modified SC.
My 22SCT 2.0 was awesome in mid motor even on the outdoor watered surface and I ran my standard mm set up available at this link
Pro-Line Suburbs 2.0 M4 and ION M4
Thanks to my sponsors who provide me with the great products to compete!

This past weekend Harrisburg Farm Show complex in Pennsylvania hosted the 2015 Motorama race. It’s an annual race that always has over 500 entries with people coming from over 6 different states from all over the northeast region.
TLR Pro-Line driver Anthony Mazzara set the pace for overall TQ in expert 4WD Short Course and Expert 1:8 E-Truggy. He also qualified 4th in expert 1:8 E-Buggy. After all the dust settled from the triple A-Mains Anthony ended up taking the win in 4wd Short Course and 1:8 E-Truggy and was able to get on the podium for the 3rd spot in Expert 1:8 E-Buggy.
Anthony ran Pro-Line M4 Hole Shots in all three classes and said they were awesome.
He also used the Pro-Line Lightweight Velocity wheels in E-Buggy and E-Truggy.
I raced at RC Madness in Enfield, CT for a Friday night club race. It was a mellow night but I had a great time. I had some fresh Tires on my car so it was extra hooked up to the track. I came in First overall at the end of the night.
Thanks to Pro-Line my car was hooked up.

Awesome day at RCHR‘s February Freeze trophy race in Waterbury, CT. with Rob Destefano and James Rivera.
Qualifying started off a little shaky but still managed to start 3rd in 2WD Buggy and 2nd in 4WD buggy. Made a few “Hail Mary” changes for the Main in 2WD and it paid off. Took the lead in the first few laps and never looked back. The 4WD Main was another story. Took the lead early and held it for a bit but one small bobble would leave me in 3rd fighting every lap with Jimmy James and Paul Madina. Pulled out a 3rd place finish. Not too shabby seeing as I only had a 13.5 in it! Both cars were good on Pro-Line 2.4″ VTR M4 Electrons on VTR Wheels and sauced with Devil Spit V1 all day!
Special thanks to all my sponsors, John Cravotta and Team Scream Racing for providing great power, Jessica Kelishes and Daniel Adams with Pro-Line Racing for setting me up with some great tires, Tom Riccio and Action Hobbies for all their support, TQ Wire, Bocca Bearings, and RJD Instalations. Will Blanck, Jay Kennedy and the rest of the RCHR crew put on another awesome event as usual, best of luck to you Willy! I did however miss my boy Jonny B. though!
So this weekend it was time to get back to Nitro, and off to France we went. We arrived on the Thursday evening, loaded the bags into the rental car and popped to the track to setup our pit area. The track was looking great and we were looking forward to running the next day. Back to the hotel then out for an evening meal.
Friday 13th: Practice
The format for the day was to be 4 rounds of practice at 7-mins in length for the first 3 and 5-mins for the last. Read the rest of this entry »
I had a great time at the NSX race at Thunder Alley. The track lay out by Sik Track design was really fun.
My Mugen MBX+T Truggy was hooked up with Pro-Line X3 Hole Shots and I was able to qualify 2nd.
In the Main I had a rough start and found myself at the back of the pack, but I was able to battle my way up and ended up finishing 2nd in the Pro class. As for my Mugen MBX7R Buggy it was feeling great in qualifying on M3 Hole Shot 2.0s but I ended up qualifying 10th which put me in the B-Main.
The temperature was dropping so I ran M4 Hole Shot 2.0s in the 22-minute B-Main and the car was hooked up, I was able to win the B-Main and bump to the A.
The A-main was a 40-minute race but I decided to run the same M4 Hole Shots I ran in the B-Main and it was the right choice. My Buggy lap times never dropped off over the 40-minute race and I was able to get 2nd place.
I also ran the new Phantom body for the first time and it felt great.
