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.

Nice to see a large turn out!!! Next up should be LCRC (Oakland Mills, PA) for the Big One! Should be my first Nitro race of the year, plus run the Pro-Line PRO-2!!!
And THANK YOU to Pro-Line, Viper R/C Solutions, and Colonial Motor Mart for all there support!
2wd sct ….. This was my first full race with the new Pro-Line PRO-2 SC Truck and I used the outdoor setup displayed on the website and it worked awesome as both rounds of quals I placed second and ran an awesome race switching from 1st and 2nd the whole time … but as I was on the last few laps I clipped the pipe pushing to hard and finished second. RACE RESULTS
4×4 sct ….. The first round out of 2 with my truck I qualified 5th and had an absolutely horrible run. Afterwards I thought more about my setup and realized I was running a bigger pinion for my local track , so I dropped two teeth and went out for the second round and qualified 3rd … and throughout the main I battled for 2nd and 3rd as I moved up to second and pulled away from 3rd I put my eyes on first and with two mins left I put the charge on and caught him on the last few laps and won by 1 and a half seconds! The truck felt awesome!!! RACE RESULTS
Equipment ….. In the PRO-2 I had M3 Blockades on which gave me incredible corner speed and had my venom 7000 mah in for some raw power
In the SCT410 had again M3 Blockades that had awesome forward bite on and had my venom 8000 mah for that run time !
Thank you Tekno rc, Pro-Line, venom, & atomik!!!!!!!!!
This past weekend, 301 Raceway had its Grand Opening. Only being open for close to a month now, racers from all over Florida flooded to the new indoor track. With much of Florida having thunderstorms, it seemed to be the place to be for racing. With 124 entries on the event, everyone was set for a long day.
Stock Buggy is one if not the most competitive classes in the State of Florida. Of the 124 entries, 43 were in this class alone. After qualifying, young Pro-Line Driver, Cody Wiles was TQ, not only of this race, but the ENTIRE event. Cody’s time would have started him in the TQ position of every single class, even over Mod Buggy. The battle was intense, the racing clean, and the excitement had everyone on edge! The tone went and away went the drivers.
The first 5 laps saw the top 4 covered by a blanket. A small mistake proved costly dropping 4th place Brandon Ryan to 6th and unable to recover. Next was 3rd place Peyton MacDonald. He drove his car hard, pushing it to its utter limits. While going for a pass for second place, he got caught in a back marker that was in the pipe. This left just 2, and man did they battle. Alan Wight applied the pressure, and Cody Wiles proved why he was TQ. Lap after lap nothing changed until Cody caught an unfortunate break with a back marker spinning out in front of him. Alan Wight got around and raced off with the win with Cody Wiles in 2nd and B-main bump up Ryan Rios bringing home 3rd! Cody ran the same set of M3 ION tires all day.
In Stock Truck from tone to literal tone it was clearly a two truck race. Battling every lap, and down to the last turn was TQ Walter Cruz, and Pro-Line Driver, Brandon Denmark. Midway through the final lap the tone went off, and all the pressure was on Walter. The last turn approaching Brandon was there, and Walter knew it. He guarded the inside but to closely catching the pipe forcing him wide and Brandon Denmark diving under for the win at the line! Kevin Abbott wheeled his truck home in 3rd filling out the podium.
In other classes, Pro-Line Driver David Whiteside came in 2nd overall in 4wd SCT.
Not a win, but any bridesmaid would be proud.
The layout broke through yet again with previously unseen obstacles. This year featured a cleverly placed dip in the track going onto the straight which would provide options; either a punched high flying style, or keeping the wheels planted and putting down power. Very race-able with no washboard and less chicanes than last year. Read the rest of this entry »
