At the end of every outdoor season, at the final 1:8 race of the year at the finale round of the Northwest Championship Tour in Pasco, Washington, we all feverishly prepare our cars for one final push on the dirt for the season. For most of the region, this will be the last time any driver touches a radio for the remainder of the calendar year. The race ends, we receive our series awards, take pictures, thank our sponsors for their support, and we go home and we wait. Some of us continue to travel around the Pacific Northwest or farther to race our 1:10 vehicles, but the attitude isn’t the same- we are all waiting for 1:8 season to start, as the carpet merely holds us over. For five months some of us rip around doing 12-14 second laps on a tight high grip track, while others simply stare at their vehicles. Eventually, the middle of February comes around, and we prepare our 1:8 vehicles again. Dirt racing has returned, and its name is Cabin Fever.

Did some club racing on carpet this weekend at MBRC. I ran the HB D216 with a 17.5 against the field of mod buggy’s and the HB D413 in 4wd Mod.
The past weekend Hampus attended the Swedish VBC Indoor cup.
After qualifying Hampus started second in the A-Main.
Kept that position during the 3 finals.
I took home two Fall Brawl belts from this year’s race. The event has become one of the largest outdoor RC races on the east coast with over 570 entries and featured a majority of the top racers. Every class was stacked so I am very happy with my finishes and hope I can use the experience to gain confidence and continue improving as a racer.
Continued my trek around the region; this weekend took me to Mooresville, NC for Speed RC’s Thanksgiving Classic race. In order to maximize my track time and justify my travel, I entered three classes; 4WD Buggy, 4WD and 2WD Short Course Trucks. I was close to reaching the podium in all three classes but fell just a little short. I ended up with TQ and 2nd place in 4WD SCT, 3rd place in 4WD Buggy and just shy of the podium in 2WD SCT with a 4th place finish.
Speed RC utilizes the same clay as Beach RC allowing me to run the same setups and tire combinations on all my vehicles as the previous weekend.
Good times at the N.I.S.S for round 1 of the summer series in Argos, IN. Managed to pull a win out in 2wd 17.5 blinky A-Main and a 3rd in 2wd mod A-Main.
Pro-Line 4-Rib and Tazers gave me good grip on the rough, rutted track. D216 Type-R Body looked great on my buggy and the Trifecta wing is the toughest wing out. Lol. Track was super rough, rutted and loamy. Pro-Line equipped D216 handled it like a champ.

Now you can have the same body that Ty Tessmann runs on his D216: the Type-R! Type-R came from the mind of Pro-Line Team Driver Ty Tessmann with a unique mid-cab look that breaks away from all of the recent cab forward trends. The Type-R body fits perfectly around the unique shape of the D216 and features kick up in the rear of the body for balanced front to rear down force. The body style also matches that of the Type-R for the D413! If you have a performance hungry D216 buggy, then you NEED to get Pro-Line’s Type-R body!

On 10/24/15 I attended the annual Halloween Race at LCRC in Oakland Mills, PA. The event is always popular and this year did not disappoint with over 190 entries. I ran both Nitro Buggy and Nitro Truggy.
In Nitro Buggy, I ran the Type-R Body on my D815 with M4 LockDowns in Q1 with the standard Black Trifecta Wing and qualified 4th overall. During Q2, I decided to try M3 Hole Shot 2.0s with the Trifecta Lexan Wing but felt either the soft compound or less weight over the rear reduced rear traction compared to the M4 LockDowns and ended up qualifying 7th after Q2 going into the Mains. For Truggy, I felt consistent all day with M3 Hole Shots and the Bulldog Body and qualified 4th overall going into the mains. Read the rest of this entry »
Problem is, I have the MP9E Electric Buggy, and not the Nitro. Being the die hard Pro-Line fan I am, I was curious to see if I could get it to fit.
Interested to see how I did it?? KEEP ON READIN’!!
