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.

At the end of every outdoor season, at the final 1:8 race of the year at the finale round of the Northwest Championship Tour in Pasco, Washington, we all feverishly prepare our cars for one final push on the dirt for the season. For most of the region, this will be the last time any driver touches a radio for the remainder of the calendar year. The race ends, we receive our series awards, take pictures, thank our sponsors for their support, and we go home and we wait. Some of us continue to travel around the Pacific Northwest or farther to race our 1:10 vehicles, but the attitude isn’t the same- we are all waiting for 1:8 season to start, as the carpet merely holds us over. For five months some of us rip around doing 12-14 second laps on a tight high grip track, while others simply stare at their vehicles. Eventually, the middle of February comes around, and we prepare our 1:8 vehicles again. Dirt racing has returned, and its name is Cabin Fever.

Southern Indoor Championship S.I.C. had the best track we have run on to-date.
Going into the event we had a hard time deciding which class to run (Pro or Sportsman)
We signed up for Pro and man was it fun! We got to run heat races with some of our RC hero’s and let me tell ya, them dudes are bad fast!
It was our first time out, showed with Pro-Line tires exclusively and I must say P-L has got you covered. The tire of choice (for us) all weekend was M4 Hole Shots and they were glued to the track! Read the rest of this entry »
The Big Bend Shootout over the years has become a must-attend event in the Southeast. Capital City Raceway, located in Tallahassee, FL played host again for this once a year event. Drivers from all over Florida and South Georgia merged together this past weekend to take on the newly built Track Masters design track.
With an unfamiliar layout for most drivers and a newer surface, nobody truly knew what tire tread and compound would perform the best. A wide variety of tires were used all throughout the weekend as temperatures ranged from low 30’s to high 60’s as the sun and clouds came and went. Pro-Line Hole Shots from M4 to X3 was the dominate tire by most of the Pro-Line Team Drivers. Read the rest of this entry »
Today was round 2 of the SFORCS held at Coral Springs RC track which brought in 90+ entries. The track condition started off wet and ended up blue grooved. David and I thought we would keep it simple today and raced only one class.
Our Pro-Line Hole Shot Tires gave us the traction we needed all day. Read the rest of this entry »
On the 16th October 2016 took place a competition at the Indoor circuit IBR of Padova. During the Saturday tests we used the HOLE SHOT M4 and we noted that the machines had a good trim. Sunday the circuit grip was change and we choose the SUBURBS X4 on both machines (nitro and brushless), this choice allow me to arrive at the 1st place with the brushless and at the 5th place of the NITRO F1. Many thanks to PRO-LINE for the excellent products.

In this late summer weekend, drivers from coast to coast travelled to West Monroe Louisiana to compete at the Southern Indoor Nationals. With 411 entries, there was stiff completion all across the board. Many drivers from the Pro-Line Racing Team contended, and at the end of the weekend, we truly came out on top.
Top Pro Joe Bornhorst, reigning world champion Ty Tessmann, as well as a handful of regional hot shots came out to represent. Nitro Buggy and Truggy, as well as Electric Buggy were the classes of choice. This track included many unique features. With large jumps, and a bumpy dustier surface, the driving experience was trickier than the common race. Most of the team drivers chose the M4 Hole Shot as their go-to tire. With the super soft rubber, and smaller pin, it allowed them to have lots of grip and turn the fast laps they needed to qualify in the top spots. Read the rest of this entry »
