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.

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.
