Special thank you to Cory Drachenberg!

Round 7 of the JBRL Series would take place at the huge SDRC Raceway facility in San Diego. It’s been 2 years since I have been here and was looking forward to the weekend. I arrived Friday to make sure I got a full days practice session in to be prepared for race day. The track layout was really fast and flowing making for some incredibly close racing all weekend.
I had great qualifying runs in all my classes, my 4wd Buggy especially. My Team Associated B44.2 was dialed in and hooked up with my Pro-Line Electrons up front and VTR Suburbs in the rear. In the 2nd qualifier I pulled together a win in my heat and put my Venom/ Tekin Powered, Coyote Hobbies B44.2 in 3rd qualifying position for the main event. In the Main I make 1 of my own mistakes that put me in the back of the field but I kept it together and made it back up front. Everyone was making mistakes and I kept getting into the crashed cars as the racing was so close the entire time. In the end I would pull off a 3rd place podium in 4wd Buggy.

Our friends over at MyRCBox.com shared some awesome videos with us from the Québec Classic Truggy qualifiers that took place earlier this month. The videos feature Pro-Line Drivers Ty Tessmann and Adam Drake who spent the day at the event.
Pro-Line Racing is famous for great tires and bodies in the RC world. From Pro level drivers to backyard bashers, they have you covered from the rubber side to the shiny side, until now! A few months back, Pro-Line Racing unveiled their new PRO-2 2WD Short Course Truck Kit and it was a hit. Originally parts from the PRO-2 were designed to help fix issues with the Traxxas Slash 2WD, but Pro-Line had visions of perfection. Now available as an open wheeled Short Course Buggy, this 1/10th scale kit is unboxed and ready for electronics in my video. Badged with icons like Blockade Tires, F-11 Wheels, PowerStroke shocks and ProTrac suspension, this Short Course Buggy will be nothing short of amazing!
I’m about an hour into the build have completed the front clip. So far the build quality is great and parts are very nice. Plastics seem very durable and I’ve uncovered some nice included upgrades right out of the box!
I’m about 2.5 hours into the PRO-2 SC Buggy build from Pro-Line Racing. So far the front and rear clip are down and a Servo (Savox 1258tg) has been fitted. Next, is the shocks and on to the body and electronics.

Time for a visual update! Let’s start off with the wheels and tires of this rig, I’m installing some Pro-Line 3.8″ Trencher X and also give you a little info on what I have planned for the bodyshell ( Pro-Line 1966 Ford F-100 ) of the HPI Savage Octane XL.
I’m using some PROTOform body tools to get everything shaped and prepared for paint.
Simplicity is key in this paintjob, in which I explain you some basics like fading, flat clear coating and how a simple design can be effective.
