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.

Had a great weekend in the Philippines, the people were awesome and treated us like royalty, and we can’t thank them enough for the hospitality. It was a great event and if you are thinking of going you won’t be disappointed.
This was the first time running the XRay cars on super high grip and it took us a bit of time to get the setup right but it all came together in the end.

I was able to take the win in both Buggy and Truggy. Running Pro-Line X2 Blockades

Ran the RC Madness Season Opener! That would be the “Outdoor” season! We ran our two trusty steeds, our Xray XB8E E-Buggy and our MIP Pro4mance 4×4 SCT (Pro4).

The weather was incredible, and the track was fun but challenging with ever changing conditions of true off road racing.

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.

Pro-Line products used:

Force Series Round 1 @ Triple Nickle Raceway

kosier-1

Well after taking some time off to get things together after 2016. We started to see what races we wanted to do for 2017 season. We have been wanting to get out to more tracks that we have not been to before. So after looking around we decided to do The Force Series which is 9 races this year with 2 of them out of state in Georgia.

We made our way down to Bartow for round 1 of The Force Series at Triple Nickle Raceway. This was a new track to us and unfortunately we were not able to get to the track the night before for some practice. So we got the car ready in the morning for round 1 of qualifying.

We put on some Pro-Line Blockades M4.

He was running good got up to 4th at on point and then had some trouble off of one of the jumps and ended up finishing 7th. Read the rest of this entry »
