This last week I attended the ROAR 1:8 Electric Off-Road Nationals held at Amain’s Silver Dollar Raceway. I would run both Truggy and Buggy. Wednesday practice would go smooth making only a few small suspension changes to my cars. Since the track changed only 30% from the old layout, I would feel pretty comfortable right away. Thursday would be two rounds of seeding practice. I would get two decent runs in each class putting me in the B-Main re-sort in both classes.

2017ROARtenth

Last weekend on 22 July G’s RC Raceway in Shippensburg, PA hosted the final round of the ROAR Region 2 1:10 Series.

Ethan Mackanick was the top qualifier in 2WD Modified Buggy. The weather was unpredictable most of the day with high humidity and a chance of rain. The rain did come for a small period of time after the first qualifier but it was just enough moisture for Ethan to put in his fastest run of the day in round 2 of qualifying. Ethan lead the finals from tone to tone and took the victory with his buggy by more than a lap.

Ethan would like thank Pro-Line Racing and LCRC Raceway for their continued support of his racing program.

Products used by Ethan Mackanick

Orion R10 ESC and 7.5 motor

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.

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..

Ran Pro-Line Fugitive Lites on the E-Buggy and Hole Shots on the Short Course Truck

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 »

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 »
