The Summer Shootout 2.0 has come around once again at Southside RC Raceway. This time the track crew has done it again with another amazing transformation of the facilities. Weather tried to stop them once again this year, but they never gave up. Making sure all the racers (340 entries) had a great surface for some awesome racing through the weekend.

We made our way to the track on Friday night the 26th. Allen was able to get one good practice session in. We put on some Pro-Line M3 Blockades since the track was a bit damp that night from the moisture coming back up. The Blockade felt good. Come Saturday morning we decided to get one more session of practice in before qualifying started. Allen put on some M4 Hole Shots and his car was better and had more grip.

We made our first trip to Lake Park RC for The Force Series. We arrived late Friday night to the track and looked over the track and talked to some friends about the track conditions. Since we did Got a bit to late for practice so they could do repair and prep to the track for the morning.
Come Saturday morning we woke up at 7am and got ready to do some practice runs. We started with using M3 Blockades. Track was real loamy in the morning.

By the time of qualifying track was totally different. Allen started and as he came back around to the start and finish line we had something come apart in the steering. So that took us out of round 1 of qualifying.

Come round 2 of qualifying we put on M3 Hole Shots and they were really awesome on the track. Read the rest of this entry »

october-1st

October 1st, As we made our way to River Rat RC Allen decides to run his Xray XB8e.

He went out for a little practice and car felt real good on Pro-Line Blockades, So we decided to take the car in and look it over and get it ready for the Quals. He ran real good in the 1st Qual and took TQ.

In the 2nd Qual got knocked out of TQ and finished 2nd. Come to the Mains Allen started in 2nd place. It was a close race between 1st and 2nd the whole race. One little bobble with either one and that would give the other a chance to pass. The pressure was on both for sure.

Allen’s Xray XB8e ran great all day on Pro-Line Racing Blockades, and at the end of the race Pro-Line driver take 1st ( Allen Kosier) on podium in 1:8 E-Buggy.

Thanks #prolineracing, #riverratrc, #ftmgrip

Daytona Off-Road RC / River Rat Points Series

Finally the time came for the 1st round of Daytona Offroad RC/River Rat Points Series at River Rat RC November 14th 2015

The track was in great shape and looked to have a lot of traction. We started off using  Pro-Line Holeshots in front and rear of our 2wd B5m buggy with some FTM Grip Blast on
the tires. My Buggy felt very good. I finished 6th in both qualfiers. By the time for the mains the track was a bit different because the sun came out and other cars started grooving the track.
So for the mains we started 6th and decided to use Pro-Line 4 Ribs on the front and Pro-Line  Square Fuzzies for the rear and some more FTM Grips on the tires. The car was really hooked
up. There was alot of tight racing and we ended up finishing 4th in the A-main.

I feel this is a good start to the 4 race points series being 4th in points.

Next we head to Daytona for Round 2 of the series. I woukd like to thank #prolineracing, #ftmgrip, #bocabearings and #riverratrc for their support.

We made our way to River Rat RC for some 2WD Buggy racing today. Track was in really good shape and had some good traction. Went out for our 2 rounds of qualifying and finished in 2nd place both times.

The car was really running good. Had to make some small adjustments before the mains to get a little more grip turning. Starting in 2nd place for the Mains and it was a tight race all the way thru with Doug smith. Back and forth between us both and coming to the finish line with him right behind Allen.

The Pro-Line M4 Hole Shots were hooked up today.

It was a great race and would like to thank our sponsors ‪Pro-Line Racing‬, ‪#‎ftmgrip‬, ‪#‎bocabearings‬, ‪#‎riverratrc‬ and also my wife for letting us do this this on our anniversary day and my daughter.

Our next event will be November 14th at River Rat RC for The Daytona Offroad/River Rat RC Series.
Funny thing is the guy in 3rd place broke his buggy in qualifying and we have an extra B5 so we let him use it instead of not being able to race the rest of the day. So we really had two #prolineracing, #ftmgrip buggies on podium. Lol

B5m1

After being rained out for 3 to 4 weeks with all this rain here in Florida we will head to Newred Hobbies in the morning where they always have you covered. We have yet to try out the Pro-Line Racing B5M since we got it. So hopefully we can get it tuned and and make some good runs. We will be using Pro-Line Primes in Front and Rear, Hobbywing Just Stock ESC, Trinty D4 and Pro-Line Body and Wing. I will see if I can pick up any more lap time with the B5M compared to the B5 I was running. After getting to Newred Hobbies Saturday morning. We started getting ready for the qualifiers. Taking some laps with the new B5m we ran Sportmans class and Stock to get more track time with it. Getting TQ and and starting in 1st position for Sportman. The car was running real good. Going into the A-Main for Sportsman I had almost 1/2 a track on 2nd place about half way through the Main and then coming down the front straight something came loose on the Buggy and sent us to ending the race in last.

Starting the Stock class in 7th and finishing 7th. I also hit my fastest lap ever at the track with the new Buggy of 18.7-sec. We were very happy with the car and will do some more tuning on it and come back and see what else we can improve on.

Thanks Pro-Line Racing, FTM Grip, River Rat RC Track, Moto1 RC Painting and Boca Bearings
