Round 4 of the JBRL would take place at OCRC in Huntington Beach, CA. This would be my fist time racing at OCRC, The track had a good layout and I knew it was going to be a fun weekend.
I spent all day friday trying to dial in my Cars, & trying many different tire choices. I ended up using MC Pro-Line IONs on the Pro-Line PRO-2 SC. My Team Associated B5M was working good all day with minor changes on the car for the amount of traction that the track was putting off.
As saturday came Mod 2wd buggy was up first for me. I started off the race good, but could not put the end of the race together, so I ended up taking 5th in the results. As PRO-2 SC came up there was some very stiff competition in this class, I had a run with many crashes and ended up qualifying 10th in the A-main. 2nd round of qualifying came around Mod Buggy went the same with to many crashes and SC I would better my time to 8th place qualifier in the A-main.
Mod buggy B main was up First, I started off the race with a good start and was making some good passes on my competition. A couple minutes into the race I would start hitting pipes and ended with a 8th place finish. Pro 2 SC A main was up next I started off 8th place but, as the race went on I would be making my way up to the front of the pack. I stayed in second place for about the whole rest of the race and held a clean mistake free race putting my Pro-Line PRO-2 SC in second place of the podium behind Team Associated’s Kevin Motter.
Pro 2 Podium, Kevin Motter 1st, Kyle Carpenter 2nd, Eddie Armijo 3rd

I wanted to do my own little tire test to see how long a set of tires would hold out for. The track was nice and tacky on the racing line but was quite loose just off it. I chose to run the Bow-Ties in M3 compound. They worked great! So much confidence in pointing the car where I wanted.
3 liters of fuel went by and I was still on the same set of tires! They last forever! I can’t wait to do more testing with these great tires in other tread patterns and compounds! Looking forward to the year ahead!
Here is a pic after 3 liters of fuel
Here is also a link to youtube for a few laps from yesterday also.
Thanks again Pro-Line!!!
Stay tuned for more!

JBRL heads up to Rainman’s raceway in Bakersfield to get round 3 started. I carpooled up after working a half day Friday, with friends Ricardo and Ed Bender from Benders Bodies. I got a lot of practice in with all my vehicles. All my vehicles were hooked up on Pro-Line clay IONs. It was going to be hardest to drive my Pro-Line PRO-2 truck as it would be hard to get a drive off the short runs before the jumps on such a small track. It would be up to my Venom/ Tekin powered cars to get the job done.
Qualifying went pretty smooth for me. I was to put together 3 sweet runs on the first run taking the TQ in both PRO-2 and 1/8 scale. I was to finish up 2nd in the Pro 4 class. On the second run the track would come together and I would be beat out in all classes but I was to qualify 3rd for the main events.
Race 36 Pro 4 started off to a little bit of a slow start. I was to get passed by David Jensen on the second lap and then Casper was to slip by right after. Casper would crash and I was to slip by and try and catch up to David. David would soon make a mistake and I would get by and this is when the real battle for third broke out. It was back and forth for most of the race and then about 30 seconds from the end I would get a weird hop on the landing of the triple. That would result in me having to give up my chances of a podium finish. I would make it to a happy 4th place finish.
