We got our cars ready for Montpellier GP and the DNC, we had a break in the, not so, lovely English weather, so we headed down to our local track at Westmill. We ran on the Astro track and it gave Elliott a chance to test the new PinPoint Tyres (coming soon), we glued them up with the Closed Cell blue inserts, and gave the run.

Elliott really liked them a lot, lots of grip and drive while the track was dry, we did about 20 mins test, and there was very little wear. they work very well, hope you like the photo.

Cheers

Hofer wins 4wd and 2wd modified in Stäfa, Switzerland.

More than 140 drivers traveled to the biggest and most well known Swiss indoor offroad event in Stäfa, Switzerland (Jan 1 – Jan 2, 2014).

The track was fast but the new carpet offered low traction.

On Saturday Patrick found a good setup and dominated the qualifications. Patrick is showing more and more stability at races and took the win with coolness in both categories.

Drake checked out in the 25 minute buggy final and won by two laps.

Drake used Nova Rossi’s Keep Off 4 engine to power his TLR 8ight 3.0 buggy and Pro-Line M4 Holeshot 2.0’s were the tire of choice for qualifying and the final.

In the 20 minute truck final Drake powered away from the competition with Nova Rossi’s Keep Off 7 engine and Pro-Line M3 Holeshots.  Drake’s 8ight T 3.0 set-up is available at Adam Drake Setup Sheet

This past Sunday Pro-Line driver Scott Furtado attended the Ford Winter Shootout at Maximus R/C Raceway up in York, ME. There were 130 plus entries with drivers from all over New England in attendance. Heath Jackson and the whole Maximus crew put down an awesome flowing layout at their indoor facility.

Here is what Scott had to say about the event:

“I competed in three classes this weekend: 2wd modified buggy, 4wd modified buggy, and 1/8 E-buggy. Qualifying went well as I ended up 7th overall in 2wd buggy, 2nd overall in 4wd buggy, and took the TQ spot in 1/8 E-buggy.”

“In the 2wd main the start went a little rough as a combination of drivers (including myself) crashed in the first turn causing a huge pileup and never finding a groove throughout the race hence ending up finishing 8th.”

“In the 4wd main I had a good start but had a couple of crashes and finished second 4 seconds behind the leader, and in 1/8 E-buggy I led every lap from start to finish and finished in first.”

I want to thank Pro-Line for all their support this 2014 season.

Thanks Scott

A couple weekends back I attended RC Pro Series Round 1 in Alvin, Texas, at Ultimate RC.  I always look forward to racing at this track, as it is always a fun, motocross style track!

PRACTICE

Practice on Friday was cancelled due to icy conditions and a wet track, so they moved practice to Saturday morning.

QUALIFYING

Due to the delayed practice, the plan was to run 2 rounds of 7 minute qualifiers, and if we finished those two rounds before 7 P.M., we would run 1 more round that night.

In the first round of truggy qualifying, I was going in blindly because I didn’t have a chance to get any practice time with my truck. I wasn’t that worried, because my XT9 is always good.  I went out there with M3 HoleShots and my truck was awesome!  I drove pretty cautious and made a few mistakes for a 2nd overall for the round.  In the second round, I went out with the same set of M3 HoleShots, and wanted to try to get a fast run in. My truck was very fast but I made a few mistakes and got 3rd overall for the round.

In the first round of buggy qualifying, I just wanted to have a clean run and maybe try and go for a fast run in round two.  I went out there with X3 BowTie 2.0s and had a pretty good run for 5th overall.  They had problems with the loop during the second round and decided to finish up the races that weren’t run, the next morning.  The next morning I had a faster run for 4th overall.

After qualifying, I was set to start 3rd in truck and 4th in buggy… Read the rest of this entry »
