The R/C Racers of Edmonton hosted the Oil City Dash. The event had a full day of practice on Friday, qualifying on Saturday, and main events on Sunday.

Adam Drake was on hand to help with setup and tuning questions throughout the event. Drake was the top qualifier in nitro 1/8th buggy. Drake won the 45-minute Buggy final followed by Cory Drachenberg and Pete Tozzer.

This weekend I was able to continue the back to back weekends by making the 3 hour drive to LRT Raceway in Iowa for the Firecracker 40. I was really pumped for this one as it would be the first time running a main longer than 30-minutes! Shout out to Danny and his dad for the dialed facility!

As for qualifying I would have solid runs and after the two rounds I would TQ both E-Buggy and Pro Nitro Buggy! E-Buggy would go great and I would be able to win by about 2 laps!

2017-Summer-Sizzler

I had this race circled on my calendar for several months as it was my home track’s big summer race. Unfortunately, the event was cut short by a rain storm but we were able to squeeze in three rounds of qualifying on Day 1. The rain began shortly after the qualifiers and lasted into the night so we were unable to run the scheduled Mains on Sunday. It was a bit of a bummer for sure but overall the event was still a positive.

Summer-Shootout

I took a break from my studies and made the 3-hour trip to Charlotte (Mooresville), North Carolina to attend Speed RC’s Summer Shootout on their outdoor track.

I ran E-Buggy and 4WD SCT, while also taking advantage of their indoor track in between rounds to get a little extra wheel time with my XRay XB4 Buggy. Overall it was a really good day as I was able to TQ and take the Win in the 4WD SCT class and earned a spot in the Pro E-Buggy A-Main.

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 »

The first round of the Austrian 1:8 E-Buggy Nationals was held on the very tricky and super bumpy track of the MBV Notsch in the very south of Austria.
Hoeco supported drivers did very well all weekend with Andreas Mayr starting on Pole after winning his semi and Rene Kargl winning the event after winning the first 2 mains with superb driving.

Personally I was struggling all weekend and only finished 6th overall.

8 out of the 12 finalists used Pro-Line rubber with 5 out of the top 6.

Final Result:

1st – Rene Kargl – Pro-Line Bow-Tie X3
2nd – Jürgen Trieb
3rd – Andreas Mayr – Pro-Line Switchblade X3
4th – Martin Kreil – Pro-Line Blockade/Lockdown X3
5th – Thomas D. – Pro-Line Blockade X3
6th – Hupo HöniglPro-Line Bow-Tie X3

thank you and best regards,

Buggy-Podium-shot

This past weekend me and my father attended our important 2nd Round of the Australian Nationals Series! The weekend held almost 200 entries with 1:8 Buggy and Truck to be ran over the four days in Melbourne, Australia.

Thursday held two rounds of practice and the first round of qualifying. The track was very hard packed as soon as we got there, it seemed as if we were going to be running on some high traction later on in the event (and we did!). I got started with an awesome round 1 and managed to take both TQ’s in each round.

Friday held four more rounds of qualifying where I would have the chance to take the overall TQ in both.

Both my Team Associated RC8B3 and T3 were working amazing on X3 Blockades as the track began to increase in traction after every run we had!

By the end of the day I managed to smash the field and take the overall TQ in Both Buggy and Truck! Read the rest of this entry »

Me and P-L Teammate Jared Wiggins headed out to LRT Raceway in Evansdale, IA for their outdoor season opener. 60 entries with some great nitro buggy competition would be in attendance. This track is unique in that it has a very hard, abrasive, almost sandpaper like surface with really high tire wear. We knew this would call for X compounds all day and were confident in the Pro-Line rubber to withstand these conditions.

I would be running Nitro and Electric Buggy. Jared and I would bounce and try tire ideas back and forth and we were narrowed to Fugitives, Blockades, and Lockdowns.
