Tiltyard 8

Had an incredible weekend at the Tiltyard! Raced E-Buggy and 4WD SCT. Had a pretty rough time with qualifiers. E-Buggy would start good, then a screw in the center diff would slightly back out, and lock up the car, and then also strip the spur gear. So, that ended that run. Somehow I managed to miss the first SCT qualifier by not being where I was supposed to be.. Whoops..

If you didn’t attend the Pro-Line Summer Shootout held at Southside Raceway located in Lake City you missed out on probably what will be the greatest event of the year in Florida. With an amazing 340 entries, the place was packed. The time and effort put in from #Brian Lewis, #Lance McDonald and the entire track crew really showed. It’s an outstanding facility that had a brand-new tire wash area, air station to blow off cars and a new staging area. The track itself had many features including the Cabbage Patch and brick sections. It had a couple step ups/ step downs, huge double, triple and the largest off camber around. It was challenging and it made you think about your tire choice which to us is all part of racing.

We tested Pro-Line Hole Shots, Fugitive Lites and ElectroShots during practice on Friday. Read the rest of this entry »

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!).

This past weekend was the official start of the outdoor season with Thunder Alley Raceway (Wilson, NC) hosting their Season Opener Trophy race. After a year hiatus from Thunder Alley, the 2WD SCT class was offered again which meant I got to run my Pro-Line PRO-2 SCT.

The PRO-2 ran primarily indoors throughout 2016 on high-bite clay tracks so a few adjustments were required. After a couple practice laps, I felt comfortable with the truck and my Tire selection (Pro-Line Hole Shots). Qualifying went extremely smooth, as I was able to keep everything clean.

My Pro-Line PRO-2, TQ’ed the 2WD SCT division as the truck as able lapping the field en route to winning both qualifiers. Read the rest of this entry »

After a strong first practice run (45th) in Expert E-Buggy, the rest of the day was rough and carried over into day two. In each E-Buggy qualifier, I dropped further down the board (58th, 74th and 66th), which put me in the H-Main. I don’t want to make any excuses, I pushed too hard and made too many errors to qualify in the upper half of the Expert E-Buggy Division. I also need to get the mental aspect in check because my racing has struggled to start off the New Year. Instead of having fun, relaxing and focusing on racing lines, I am constantly dwelling on results and trying to justify that the team managers who selected me didn’t make a mistake. I believe I finally, snapped out of it on the third day of Motorama and was able to get on the driver stand and have fun again and enjoy guiding my buggy around the track instead of constantly worrying.

This past weekend I was able to attend Motorama 2017 where I ran Expert Electric Buggy and Expert 4WD SCT.

To start my weekend off seeding did not really goes as planned. I struggled with my cars trying to find a comfortable set up that would still handle the track conditions but still be comfortable to drive. With the first qualifier following the seeding practice round my comfort started to improve but was still having some issues.

Over the last 4 months I have attended the Thornhill winter series.

It was set up as a best 5 out of 7 rounds with 2 drops.

 

I only ran Pro Nitro Buggy in the series as that is my favorite class in 1:8. There were 42 different drivers in that class with lots of top guys from all around Texas.

This past weekend I traveled down to Savannah, GA for the 11th annual Phil Hurd Raceway Colonel’s Winter Classic.

When we arrived Friday for practice the track was in prime condition and i was feeling good on M4 Fugitive Lites.

Friday night a strong rain came through making Saturday’s qualifiers start a 5 pm after a 8 hr delay for track repairs. The track crew was able to get the track back race-able and I ran M4 Electrons in Q1. Read the rest of this entry »

Last weekend I attended the 5th MCT Advents Cup, held at the Cyzpo-Drom arena.

About 90 1:8 Electric Buggy drivers made their way to this race, including international top drivers like Robert Batlle, Darren Bloomfield and Jörn Neumann. 4 Rounds of practice followed by qualifying on Saturday.

Jörn chose Pro-Line Suburbs for qualifying which gave him plenty of grip to let him qualify 3rd overall.

Qualifying was very tight at this track and one small mistake put you a few places back. Read the rest of this entry »
