Man it was great to get back to LCRC again for another race; it feels like it has been forever since I was there. This past weekend it was their yearly “The Big One” race with a $1000 nitro buggy purse. I traveled up with teammate Jeremy McGuigan early Friday morning to great a full day of practice in. I ran Nitro Buggy, E-Buggy, and a borrowed E-Truggy from Jeremy (thanks again!).

mikeeglsickest17-3

This past weekend I packed up and headed south with teammate Joe Bornhorst to attend Levi Jackson’s Battle of the Sikest hosted at S&B RC Speedway in South Carolina. After the long 8.5 hour drive down we had arrived to a rather wet track due to all the rain that had hit the area during the past day or so. The pictures of the layout really did not do the track or layout any justice. Levi did a really nice job and made a really fun and flowing layout.

3/4/17  King RC This was our first race of the year and the first since last October. I was a little rusty but got to practice quite a few times before the race started. We ended up getting 3 qualifiers in E-buggy and then they cut nitro back to 2 qualifiers so they could get the show in since they don’t have lights. We didn’t get in a good round for nitro Buggy so I ended up starting 1st in the B-main. Still with no luck I ended up finishing 3rd and not getting the bump. We ended up starting 4th in the A-Main with the E-buggy out of 50 entries in that class. It ended up getting somewhat dark during the main but I still ended up getting a 3rd place finish. All in all the equipment worked great just had a rusty driver. We ended up on M4 Electrons.

4/28 4/29/17 Badlands Myrtle Beach SC for the Spring Sting. We ran pro Buggy and pro E-buggy. Qualifying didn’t go to bad in pro nitro buggy. We ended up starting 10th in the pro A-main. After the 30-mins was up we ended up finishing 9th. Not bad with the crowd that was there. E-buggy didn’t go as good. Car was good just couldn’t quit making mistakes. With such intense competition, one or two of those and you were out of it. We also ended up on X2 Fugitives for qualifying in both classes. As the night came we ran X3 Fugitives in E-buggy and M4 Fugitives in nitro. I think I could have ran X4 but was scared of the moisture of the night.

Thanks for the support and the awesome tires!

Thanks Mike Webb

ethanmackelecelite17-3

Saturday March 11th was the final big event for 2017 at the indoor Bumps and Jumps RC facility in Etters, PA.  The electric elite challenge proved to live up to its namesake with several features that were getting the best of most of the drivers. The event gathered 142 entries represented from the states of Virginia to New York.

Ethan entered the event in the Two and Four Wheel Drive Modified Buggy classes with three rounds of qualifying.  His car was equipped with Pro-Line Micron tires on all four corners in the MC clay compound.  The 4wd modified buggy class would be up first.  He qualified fourth in the A-Main and at the sound of the tone within half a lap, he would take over the number three spot and begin to real in the Associated cars of Christian Toic and Alex Miller.  The race was on now between the top three cars and after a few mistakes by the competition Ethan was able to take over the number one spot and continue to hold on to it for the rest of the race.

blpalmetto17-1

There is no way Beach RC is not world famous for hospitality and giving racers a great time. With a little over 200 entries, the Palmetto Classic was another great example of a well-executed event. Team Pro-Line made up many of those entries and would walk away with great results.

This tight, indoor track featured a more technical style layout, that was had plenty of traction come race day.

The wet and cold clay was ideal the Pro-Line’s MC compound, and was the choice for most team drivers throughout the weekend.  Forward bite was a necessity, and the Pro-Line Positron was a perfect choice for both buggies. Drivers would choose between Electrons, Transistors, and everything in between for the front tires. On the trucks, Electrons were by far the fastest tire.
