This past weekend I attend the 2017 Tekin Shootout at Amain’s Sliver Dollar Raceway.

The weather was incredible, and the track was fun but challenging with ever changing conditions of true off road racing.
Lots of fun & action to be had with 3 days at the track!
Did pretty decent considering the amount of talent on hand at this Legendary Event! (our first time visiting)
Signed up in the Open Class which is a intermediate class (not yet Pro but more advanced than the Sportsman class)
Nitro 1:8 Buggy, Qualified 7th & finished 6th in the C-Main… (38th out of 102 competitors)
Electric 1:8 Buggy, Qualified 6th & finished 4th in the C-Main… (36th out of 90 competitors)
Slowly but Steadily crawling our way to the top!
Pro-Line Tires, Fugitive-Lites in M4 compound worked well in early qualifiers but we choose to go with Hole Shots in M3 compound for the remaining qualifiers as the dust in the racing groove was getting heavier. Read the rest of this entry »
The scale crawler season 2017 has finally started here in Austria! We came together to host the first round of Austrian Scale Team Series (ASTS) in Moenichkirchen.
Well I put my second Psycho Nitro Blast in the books. It was another great time down in Tennessee for this event filled with some frustration, but they got quickly buried by all the good times this weekend.
I choose to run Open Electric Buggy and Open Nitro Buggy this weekend to have more downtime and focus on getting more rest this year then last year. We arrived Thursday evening and I could not wait to see the track. I personally really liked the layout and thought it was much better then last year. Nothing was to over the top but challenging enough to make for some good racing. Practice day went well with both of my cars and was felling confident heading into qualifying.
I decided to make the long 10-hour drive east to Salt Lake City Utah for the 29th annual April Fools Classic. I got to the track Wednesday and practice all day. With the dirt being similar to what I was used too, my cars were stuck to the track right away. On Thursday we would a controlled practice for most of the day followed by one round of seeded practice for our qualifiers on Friday.
Both of my cars were amazing on my Pro-Line MC Positrons along with my Tekin RSX speed controls and gen3 motors!
Training a new police officer (that’s why I’m in plain clothes) and we gave a Police presentation today at the Early Childhood and Family Center. Teaching him Community Oriented Policing. The kids loved the Pro-Line PRO-2 and the Pro-Line Street Fighter Tires did awesome on the blacktop.
Thank you again for your support,
I attended Silver State for the first time this past weekend. It was an epic event. I am happy I finally got to cross this race off my bucket list but it won’t be the last time I go there, that’s for sure! I showed up fairly unprepared. I had to leave a lot of stuff at home, and this was only my second race ever driving my E817. It took me most of the weekend to get close to where I wanted to be with the car. I never really achieved the sweet spot but I am satisfied with my progress with the car, just wish it wouldn’t have taken all weekend.
